NeoPopRealism is style of visual arts, created by Nadia Russ in 1989, and manifested online+ in 2003, after she January 4, 2003 created a term 'NeoPopRealism'. NeoPopRealism combines the brightness and simplicity of Pop Art with deep and psychological realism, high energy color (if it is done with acrylic) and graphic nature. NeoPopRealism 10 canons for happier life Nadia Russ created in 2004.
NeoPopRealism philosophy for happier life:
1. Be beautiful; 2. Be creative and productive; never stop studying and learning; 3. Be peace-loving, positive-minded; 4. Do not acceptcommunist philosophy; 5. Be free-minded, do the best you can to move the world to peace and harmony; 6. Be family oriented, self-disciplined; 7. Be free spirited. Follow your dreams, if they are not destructive, but constructive; 8. Believe in god. God is one, it is harmony and striving for perfection; 9. Be supportive to those who need you, be generous; 10. Create your life as a great adventurous story.
In 1989, Nadia Russ (aka Nadejda Maloletneva) invented a new art style. She drew with ink pen a line that turned into the different shapes, figures, faces. Some sections, that appeared, she filled with different repetitive patterns. Nadia never uses eraser. If she makes a "mistake", it disappears because the following patterns balance the whole composition. Like all abstract art, this drawing is meditative. Later, she was using the same concept when she created her oil and acrylic canvases. This style called NeoPopRealism. NeoPopRealism is a term that she created January 4, 2003. The artworks of Nadia Russ are in the different collections, including museums' worldwide, private and corporate. To draw the pure NeoPopRealism artworks one needs to involve more than 16% of the regularly used gray matter of brain. Other way, you will land into a dull drawing process with the poor result (you can see it all over on the web, but better don't). How to open your mind and start using more that 16% of your gray matter without any dope, read "Inspirational Chapter" in any of the NeoPopRealism instructional book and view only the good art of established artists. Not each one who draw the lines and patterns can be the artist, but if you are able to involve more than 16% of your gray matter and and as result to create something unique, then maybe you will be considered as ONE.
