BOOMER MAGAZINE I SECOND EDITION I SELF FULFILLING PROPHECY

BoomerMagazine

On many occasions, artists have prophesied the path of their career, the course
of their life and many other things surrounding them including life and death. A very specific one is Jean Michel Basquiat, the artist that we have chosen for the cover of the second edition of our magazine.

From the kid living in a cardboard box on the streets of New York at 17, to a superstar millionaire artist at 21, to his tragic death at the age of 28 to a legend that inspires millions of artists, Jean Michel Basquiat has captured the imagination of the world.

The purpose of this publication is to see how contemporary artists present themselves
and their works to the viewers and to connect them with a wider audience.

My name is Catherine Fleming, I am a 25 year

Ranjit Singh Sagoo from Sutton Coldfield,

Into White, Oil on Canvas Paper, 50,8 x 40,7cm

old self taught artist from Galway on the west

coast of Ireland. My artistic practice involves

exploring the idea of pure physical expression,

how the body alone can portray emotion and

the individuals self image. I tend to exclude or

distort the face in my paintings as I believe facial

expressions can be more easily fabricated than

the rest of the body. I believe that all humans,

with practice, can master the ability to control

what their facial expressions tell the outside world

yet the body language is less easily manipulated.

I am currently working on my art in my studio,

overlooking Galway Bay.

@ranjsagoo_artist

England, is a self-taught artist. Working as a

Doctor in the NHS, he balances his medical

career with pursuing his passion for art.

The amalgamation of the experiences of his life

as a doctor and artist, Ranjit’s art is an exploration

of human nature in a natural, visceral form.

Fascinated by human nature through his daily

experiences and interactions with his patients,

Ranjit expresses these emotions through his

art. Ranjit challenges his art has to speak the

emotions and feelings it portrays.

He draws the connection between human

behaviour and emotion and that seen

throughout the animal world to the effect that

@catherineflemingart

his art is perfect blend of these. He challenges

himself to bring to life these fascinating animals

in realistic, detailed pastel drawings so that

the viewer can connect not only visually but

emotionally experience a very human emotion

in its natural, animalistic form.
