NeoPopRealism is style of visual arts, created by Nadia Russ in 1989, and manifested online+ in 2003, after she on January 4, 2003, created a term 'NeoPopRealism'. NeoPopRealism Art combines the brightness and simplicity with deepness of psychology, it has high energy colors (if it is done with acrylic) and graphic nature. NeoPopRealism is a separate art style and cannot be labeled under 'Pop Art' because NeoPopRealism has sophisticated and philosophical nature, while the Pop Art is superficial. Only drawings for children are simple enough and less sophisticated to help the little students understand the NeoPopRealist art concept and technique. Nadia Russ suggests to librarians and other bibliographers to add a new category - 'NeoPopRealism' for the NeoPopRealism Instructional books and artwork. Categorazing NeoPopRealist art books under 'Pop Art' is very wrong and confusing for the readers.
NeoPopRealism 10 canons for happier life Nadia Russ created in 2004.
You are probably would like to know more about a SECRET of NEOPOPREALISM style and why almost everyone who try to work in this manner ends up with doodling or simple decoration of the realistic work with patterns. First of all, you have to learn NOT TO COPY and NOT TO CONTROL YOUR HAND with your brain. But it is not easy to open your mind to Space and to connect to the Space Mind. So you might never will be able to do it, and as a consequences to create a good NEOPOPREALIST work of art will be impossible. But its never too late to try.
Many realists-artists after while begin to hate their realist work because they feel like they stuck in a box without air and without abiliy to move on from copying the realist world to creating something unique. This is what happened to Nadia Russ before 1989. However, she was able to break through and even more, to create a new style of visual arts NEOPOPREALISM. In 1989, she learned how to open her mind to Space, to move on to the higher level, where she did not rely on the brain limited abilities when she worked. She intentionally cuts her brain's controlling function off to be free from memory, from reflects and unintentionally built restrictions, all kind habits that put limitations on our creativity through brain normal daily functions. This is the secret!
However, not many able to do that. And if you won't be able to do this too - it is not easy job to put yourself in subconscious state of mind - then you will end up with simple dividing space with lines into sections and then, filling these sections with different repetitive patterns. This is kind of even silly thing to do because you won't be able to create any significant peace of art. And after while, like those realists artists you will feel like you stuck in a box without air and without abiliy to move on. You will draw simple doodling because your conscious abilities are very limited - you normally use only up to 16 percent of your brain's gray matter potential and everyone will see it through your work! Yes, everyone will see that you are a doodler, not artist through your work! And you'll have to be honest with yourself.
Nadia Russ said that she feels shame to show people her bad work if there any because it is like to be a bad shoemaker, bad engineer, or bad doctor! However, these days, internet is booming with bad quality art and especially with those doodling of adults who try to immitate NEOPOPREALISM by dividing spaces into sections and filling those sections with patterns.
Nadia Russ would like to say to art critics and to the average viewers that those "art creators" have another teachers - doodlers who immitate NEOPOPREALISM without
any artistic abilities. However, the NEOPOPREALIST SCHOOL has different teaching method that can be found only in Nadia Russ' NEOPOPREALIST instructional books. Other resources will teach you how NOT TO DRAW NEOPOPREALISM.
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.
