THE WINTER WONDERLAND OF FINE ART IN SEATTLE!



THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF FINE ART

My personal journey into the Wonderful World of Fine Arts has been all that and more, since I made the decision to be a "REAL" Artist = painting, drawing, coloring and writing about the creative adventures of being an Black African-American Female Fine Arts Visionary!

Starting the painting process, Stopping and Starting again...I have always been very artsy, but was I really ready to present my very own pictures in galleries, museums and art exhibits? 

">+?-¿<=# idon'tknow¡!,."

Although it sounds like a good idea and it is what most professional visual artists do at some point in their Fine Arts Career, the struggle to make this decision was very real, especially since I wanted to keep almost every picture that I made for myself (and I do) sometimes.

It is also very fun and FABULOUS to be a visual artist in different community art shows with other FABULOUS visual artists. But as I climbed to the top of "Mount Art World" and started marching around I realized there were so many twists and turns that caused me to stumble down. It was only by FAITH that I was able to hold onto my vision, goals and royal crayons.

My Fine Arts Journey started in Seattle, the place where I was born and raised. My eyes have seen the Seattle Waterfront, colorful flowers and evergreen trees that are in abundance everywhere I go. My heart moves to the creative spiritual sunrise and sunset of living in the Pacific Northwest. My mind completely understands the sun, moon, stars, wind and raindrop weather that will change several times between night and day.

The Seattle Central District~Africatown, is where I am from and the firm foundation of my everlasting Fine Arts Visionary Empire. That was BUILT with the love, pain and heartache of a true survivor who has traveled the land only to discover that no other place in the whole entire universe will be able to replace my life in Seattle…

This is where my heART has a HOME, always and FOREVER!!!

As an artist it is necessary for me to be focused on the purpose and process of my fine art visionary goals. Oftentimes people will try to pressure Black Female artists to make artwork according to their stereotyped wrong motives and that is when I had to say WHOA, STOP! THAT IS NOT MY MISSION!!!! The artwork I produce is from a place of purpose, passion and priority.

When the completed picture is painted on paper or on canvas, it is already increasing in value continuously. Therefore, I'm able to design my original art images in peace, as a wonderful contribution to the global art world.

Redefining My Fine Art Vision

The new series I will be producing in my new 2023-2025 comes from a place of restoration and revival of creative energy.  I'm excited for the vision to come forth in reality, especially after this pandemic, because our viewpoint of the world is different now and our creative vision has expanded beyond my wildest dreams.

We as Black African American Visual Artists have many different types of obstacles to conquer while living our best life. We have to continuously rebuild our strength and stand firm in our faith everyday in an effort to believe in our creative vision.Therefore it is important for us to uplift and encourage each other as artists because we BeDazzle the Whole Fine Arts World!!!!"


Global Fine Art Renaissance

Globally people have reawakened their artistic talents in the last ten years and we are currently experiencing the results of their innovative ideas and inventions that have motivated future generations of people to be more confident, prosperous and prepared to live in this new socially connected community on planet EARTH.

JUVON FINE ART DESIGNS



OPINION: RAZZLE, DAZZLE, SPARKLE, AND SHINE

by Shurvon Haynes


The year of 2020 was the year that I was going to intentionally be in the presence of Black fine art every day. I was inspired by a speech I had recently heard from creative community builder Theaster Gates, and I was ready to exhibit my visionary artwork for the first year of the new decade. In January, I had an art installation at a local Black fine arts gallery in my neighborhood. On Feb. 29 (leap year) I co-hosted an art workshop with my art partner for Black History Month at a museum. We were so excited to start the new year with so much creative momentum toward our artistic collaborative goals.

The first week in March, I reactivated my gym membership and was preparing to get my summer body ready for all the festivals, fairs, art shows, and outdoor BBQs I had planned to attend in my cute summer dresses, sandals, and faux designer sunglasses.

Then, on March 11, 2020, it was announced by the World Health Organization that the entire world was in a pandemic due to the COVID-19 virus, and everyone was required to quarantine indoors and wear a mask outdoors with limited contact with others. Obviously, wearing a face mask was not included in my summer fashionista outfits of the day. 

Yet here we are … two years later, wearing our daily mask as a part of our normal attire to prevent the spread of the fatally contagious coronavirus. I wasn’t surprised by the pandemic, because I had already noticed the air outside was thicker than normal, making it hard to breathe, and it felt different from my seasonal allergy symptoms. However, the chaotic frenzy of social gathering limitations, greedy hoarders of emergency sanitation supplies, overcrowded health care facilities, increasing death tolls, and overwhelming grief was a daily international occurrence, and it was scary. In addition to the persistent pandemic problems, racist police brutality in America escalated beyond our understanding with the visibly devastating death of George Floyd in Minnesota. 

It was at this point my vision for a fun, colorful summer became blurred and perplexed by this worldwide pandemonium. I was also grieving the loss of my own personal friends, family members, and national leaders who were dying suddenly from the coronavirus and other chronic health conditions. The permanence of death and dying was starting to become a factual reality every day. This caused me to quietly pay attention to what was happening in the world around me on a deeper level.

I was not emotionally or mentally able to fully participate in all the wacky social media challenges and instant side-hustle activities without recognizing that the entire universe and all humanity was simultaneously changing extremely fast. The animals were also behaving differently, and there were many reports of sightings of animals outside of their natural habitats as a result of the world shutting down. 

Globally, we are not the same in the year 2022, and now that’s OK! Seasons change, and as a visionary artist, I’m learning how to adapt in a creative way to help me value the process of developing something new. I’ve also decided to continuously live with renewed optimism every day, because I have a purpose to fulfill on planet Earth.

While in midst of this creative metamorphosis, I’m definitely depending upon the power of faith in God to help me understand the challenges of living in this current semi-post-COVID-19 pandemic. Here is a list of things that have helped me to adjust to living as a Black African American Fine Arts Visionary Woman. Implementing these simple lifestyle routines are essential for surviving in the 21st century.

  • Prayer and Meditation
  • Music and Dancing
  • Quiet Time and Reading
  • Writing and Drawing
  • Exercise and Walking
  • Cooking and Eating
  • Social Media and YouTube
  • Safe Adventurous Activities
  • Shopping
  • Friends and Family

We must also remember who we are and why we are here. This is an affirmation that I wrote about the importance of being a creative Person of Color. 

“We as Black African American Visual Artists have many different types of obstacles to conquer while living our best life. We have to continuously rebuild our strength and stand firm in our faith every day in an effort to believe in our creative vision. Therefore, it is important for us to uplift and encourage each other as artists, because we BeDazzle the Whole Fine Arts World!!!!”

REFRESH YOUR SPIRIT, SOUL
BODY, HEART, AND MIND!
