"Paintings are like children-- it's hard to say which one you love the most," so says artist Fatima Argun, as she shares her colorful and vibrant paintings and the inspirations behind them. She shows how she tries to balance colors, shapes, and textures, and explains the various sources of inspiration that give her works a special quality: the richness of the Turkish culture, Rumi's poetry, and the rhythms of music.

Evolution of an "Artist"

BY ANTHONY DIMAGGIO
@ VOL 16 ON MAR 28, 2019

Anthony "Scooter" DiMaggio was born and raised here in Michigan but has lived half his life in New York City. Naturally, he combines a homespun mid-western practicality with a more global and holistic sensibility. As a visual artist, he moved quickly from drawing, to painting, to sculpture, then on to wacky invention. After graduate school, he reluctantly moved into the real world and among other things; enjoyed life as a bartender, helped to start a custom made bobblehead business, and began to seriously confront the age-old existential ponderings that yearn for spiritual enlightenment. Today, he expands this evolution with fresh intention and personality to share his brand of humor and awareness through newer features and formats.
