Arto on the Walk – Day 5 to 6

October 15, 2016

Promo –

Day 5

The day was fine and slightly windy, my drawing was bombed with bird dropping at least 6 times, much cleaning and adjustment was needed to fix those wounds. I mainly focused on tonal rendering and added a small frog(kek) to the drawing, many small areas of focus to clarify the multi-level story that was unfolding.

I was asked many things by the audience, one thing I did say more than once, “If Rembrandt was working on a drawing in his studio for a number of weeks before he started to paint, this would be the equivalent drawing. The difference would be, I am in the middle of Sydney, drawing on the ground, in a plaza with thousands of passers by, chatting and taking photos, working for only 5 days, I am sure Rembrandt would find the 21st century an undesirable place, noisy, full of distractions and not a place to contemplate deep and meaningful ideas on a drawing board, let alone a master work. ”

I talked to many while I defined the artistic vision, getting ever closer to the end. A few more small things and all was done.

Day 6

I arrived at 9.20, I had missed an earlier train. I just added 4 leaves on the main tree and cleaned someones absent minded foot prints from 2 parts of the drawing. Minor adjustments to some needed areas, signed it and all was done. In those 5 and a bit days I spent at least 7 hours a day standing with my legs apart drawing with the end of the pencil, enjoying every painful lunge, with a great desire to render my deep ideas , I never felt tired or listless, only pure CHI, as I had only honor and love to drive all my inspirations, not monetary gain.

The photo is not quite the best, I had a problem with the lighting, I will re-post a better picture in the future.

I hope you enjoyed my creative journey, I will write a 20 page essay on the meaning and my considerations that took place while I dug deep into what has occurred in the history of the 20th century and what we have forgotten about from our ancient past, something I contemplated in those 5 days, where many others I know would take years for same outcome, as a masterwork does not fall out of an empty shelf.

Many decades of drawing have taught me to simplify the subject, harmonize the composition and let the viewer become involved in the process of piecing the story together, without too many complex thematic images or jarring abstracted ideas, each which can take away the underlying beauty and truth of artistic expression.

Modern art (or Post Modern Art) has no longer a place in the life of man in the 21st century, it has completely failed in communicating a balance of the deep emotional needs, spiritual and intellectual wants of a complex world that has incoherent images thrust into every aspect of our daily life. As a working Artist I have passed though the fire and brimstone of every modern art genre and found that our survival as intelligent, self reliant humans have been sorely compromised by the fake “isms” that has its only goal of supplying a never ending stream of “junk art” to fill the Modern/Post Modern Art Industry, enriching the Galleries and destroying the Artists. I have made it my goal to restore the faith in the ability of our Artists to present beauty, truth and a deep dialog with those who want to become enlightened in our population. My art has a tradition that is thousands of years old and it will survive many more, the deconstruction of art in the 20th century was but an aberration doomed to destroy itself and finally become something to be scorned.

Thanks for following my work, Regards Arto.

Arto on the Walk – Day 1 to 4

October 13, 2016

Promo –

Art On The Walk, at the Henry Deane Plaza Monday 10th – Friday 14th October between 8.00am-7.00pm. Over the week follow each work of art on facebook.com/henrydeaneplaza and get a chance to vote for your favourite artist at henrydeaneplaza.com.

The passers by can watch the compositions grow from a few sketchy lines to the completed artwork, I am very excited to be drawing at the very hub of the Sydney commuters. I am looking forward to putting many hours of creativity for the public to enjoy, please come and visit, if not then follow our progress on Facebook. If you do not know me, do not be afraid to have a small chat while I work, I do enjoy entertaining a large crowd while dancing on the end of a pencil, LOL, Arto.

My running commentary:

Day 1

A nice warm day, perfect to attack the paper with some quick pencil sketches. The other Artists are a terrific bunch of hard working crafters, good enough to scare the pants out of the average sketcher.

They day went well and I completed the initial sketch in record time, I worked like lightening, without hardley a break, I hope my crowd pleasing pencil dance inspired all in attendance, LOL.

Day 2

It was failing light near 6.30pm, I was struggling to get a clear photo of drawing. My leg muscles ached all day but I still carried on, just too much fun for this old dude LOL. I have 3 more days and all I will be doing is increasing detail and I will not add any colour, as the overwhelming response from the public was keep it as a pencil drawing. I agree, the paper that we are using is not suitable for my classical approach to pastel/watercolour/gouache, yet I could just smudge my way through and ruin a very comprehensive pencil drawing, which this paper is an excellent choice.

The cotton paper of choice would have cost over $100 a sheet, not economical for a live venue, where problems can occur with wind and weather. My only choice is to use this as a drawing in its own right rather than sully it with an unsuitable medium. The crowds have been fantastic and very responsive to our live drawing, all the Artists involved are absolutely the nicest folks around, not to forget the quality organizers.

Day 3

I forgot to take photos on day 3, my legs muscles were wrecked LOL, try lunges for 9 hours and you’ll understand ouch !! I did a lot of detailed work that day, arriving home at 9.15, a very tired Art soldier.

Day 4

My legs muscles improved overnight but the weather didn’t. The day was filled with strong gusts and threats of rain, to offset that, the drawing went smoothly and crowds were fantastic!!! 🙂 Some extremely interesting visits from members of the public, I am definitely a fan of those that pass through Henry Dean Plaza LOL. The sprinkling of rain come late in the afternoon, while all the Artists acted as a highly co-ordinates team of well trained professionals picking up all the artwork in less than a minute!! You just got to love all the Artists in the group.

Some of us worked in the storage room from sometime, until the rain abated, then another burst of rain came, then back out again. It was a fun day for all with many laughs while birds bombed our artwork with their droppings LOL We are looking forward to the last day for everybody to put their finishing touches on each work.

See you Tomorrow with the picture file when its completed, Regards Arto.

 

Chalk Day at Five Dock – Day 3

May 30, 2015

I arrived at the Five Dock lane-way with great enthusiasm, laid down my chalking gear and began adding to the previous days work, only bits were worn from the very busy foot traffic. I was greeted by many return visitors who have watched my progress over the last days, again they were enamored with the art as it transformed the dull pavement into my daily diary of chalk. I knew the time was limited so I concentrated on improving the form and the design I had begun with.

I was engaged in numerous conversations with many that passed by, asking about today’s event, all while enjoying the band and singer “Lolo” that Canada Bay Council also hired for the days event. Angela Pasqua also had an art installation near the Post Office where the band played, while across the road were the council members busily engaging the public about the beautification exhibit for Five Dock. I would say a very exciting day for the residence of Five Dock, with a free sausage sizzle and coffee for all.

Such a great vibe from all the residence, I felt I was welcomed with great enthusiasm, I definitely would be happy to come any time to create any artworks at five Dock in the future. Many more wonderful stories about these last few days than I could ever hope to fit in this blog, Regards Arto.

Chalk Day at Five Dock – Day 2

May 29, 2015

The morning was damp and foreboding, anticipating a wash out from yesterdays efforts. Arriving to wet streets didn’t deter me, as I approached the lane-way, I could not see anything from the day before. Rather than worry about having to draw it all over again, I surveyed the pavement and I could see that there were still stains from my previous work, this gave me encouragement, so I tentatively started drawing on any dry section I could find.

The concrete was finally dry by about midday. This fired me up to complete as much as I could, even though the clouds were lingering at the days end. I was so hoping to get many more flowers and birds into the scene, but, who knows what sort of miracle comes from your work when the residence are cheering you along. I must say, I have been very much appreciated by the locals at Five Dock, they have made me very welcome.

I was greeted by one gentleman who was 89, he gave me much praise, he has been a residence for most of his life, I thank him for his kind words. The many words of encouragement, kept the chalk scratching hard and progress was swift, I am looking forward to tomorrow to finalize to what has become a very great experience from a very positive community. Regards Arto.

This picture was just before packing up.

Live Interview

December 14, 2013

Hi Fellow researchers ,

Adam Bull has released a 4 Hr interview on Youtube, it is informal and free flowing, about my book “Talking to the Birds”.

Here is the Link-

Here is the Press Release:

After many years of research, personal discovery and seeing the world through the perception of an Artist, one who by his very nature must understand something very deeply before he renders its likeness, Arto Heino has released his first volume “Talking to the Birds”. The subjects covered in his book are as varied as his pallet, he shows a different perspective about each subject he studies.  Volume I, A compilation of his best works, you will see the many different hats he wears as he sifts through a broad spectrum of knowledge with a profound insight into several pieces of hidden information ignored by most other researchers.

To understand the author of this work is to peer into layers of understanding that have not been lifted in most researchers lifetime. In the chapter on Archeo-Astronomy Arto looks at some of the basic assumptions about the nature of man’s history and came to some simple conclusions, the evidence he uses is not a rehash of another theory but new and startling revelations about the cyclic nature of our consciousness. The artist and writer Arto Heino shines the light where few others have on past ancient artifacts and current sciences that should give you a new way to see the past.

As a young child, Arto found meaning in natures chaos and his deep connection to some of its hidden attributes long before he articulated his understanding to others. Books gave him one of the tools to peer into history and find those who could help him guide his vision, great artists like Leonardo Da Vinci took him to a simpler way of personal scientific and artistic discovery. To show some of what he has learned from the master he gives a brief insight into one of Da Vinci’s more famous artworks.

The lure of electricity is never far from his thoughts, he has several chapters that deal with Electronics, Invention and Machines they cover some of the most important works of Nikola Tesla. Arto shows his own artistic method of understanding the circuits of Tesla and removes a lot of the mystery that surround his work. The circuit models by Arto are more like artworks that have a landscape of parameters and clues to other possibilities. He pries into some of the mystery that surrounds the work of Lester Hendershot, Don Smith and Henry Moray, giving  new insights that could help to guide other researchers to new conclusions.

The nature of the geometric abstraction is not just pretty patterns like most modern conveyors, to Arto this is where you can find a deeper connection to the sciences. He sees a simple form such as a triangle as a new beginning to a new and non-complex form of mathematics, Quantum Arithmetic. As he implies he is only expanding on something that the geometers have tried to bury, Arto shows some of his studies in Quantum Arithmetic and the expansion of a new type of geometric discovery, where he applies it to the Giza pyramid, the Kings chamber and an Egyptian artifact that has alluded many archaeologists and geometers for the past 80 years.

The surprise in the book is not just his varied perspective of technology but in one chapter Arto lifts the surface off our modern paradigm, he includes some of his more popular cartoon images to highlight the high paced and disturbing reductions of our elite. Arto as an artist and a musician gives those inclined an interesting group of studies.
