This Week’s Art Inspiration: Travel


Here’s this week’s Art Inspiration Hit List–a few links to wonderful artwork from around the interweb to get you thinking, dreaming, and creating.

This week’s focus is art that explores travel–-from sepia toned vintage images embedded in old suitcases to carefully consructed bronze sculptures to a giant travel celebration machine in the center of Paris.

I hope they inspire you to carry your own ideas forward into your own unique new territory.

Do this artwork speak to you?

Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments!

“Old Suitcases are Canvases for Memories of a Past Life”

These sepia-toned images on the suitcases feel so homey and deeply personal, they really evoke a feeling of stories and domestic histories. I love them.

 “Bronze Sculpture: Traveling With Bruno Catalano”

These bronze half empty figures carrying their luggage seem to speak about the past and the future at the same time. The solidity of the bronze and the fragility of the open spaces somehow speak to the human condition in a way that’s both traditional and very fresh.

Is it art?Is it really about travel? I’m not sure, but it’s certainly joyful, unexpected, and over the top! Watch the video and see.

  1. Bruno Catalano’s work is amazing – what talent – how does he do it?

  2. Sarah says:

    Hi Pauline, I know, it seems to be somewhat of a mystery how he manages to keep his bronzes connected to each other with just the skinniest sections. Amazing is right!

  3. Hi Sarah, I agree-Bruno’s sculptures are wonderful. I also get a kick out of the suitcase with the image on it. I could do something with that!
    Keep on inspiring us!
