I have kept a little quiet, which does not mean that I have not kept busy.
First of all (this is like an award ceremony) I would like to thank London’s THE NEW WOLF and my UK agents at BLUE PERIOD PLC (headed by partners Matthew Bremner and Dawid Kotur) for their commitment. An article was published in this very good and up & coming underground art publication on their great work and they had the generous idea of featuring some of my paintings.
For those who have not read the article, I invite you to do so at

Now to some new art.
This is one of my new paintings from the second semester of 2011 and which have just been uploaded to my website at www.ignacioalperin.com.
It is called “Astor’s Tristezas de un doble A”, a humble and tiny, but powerful, painting inspired by Piazzolla’s work for bandoneon and the influence Jazz and New York City had in the early life of this tango genius, a man who composed some of the most exciting music of the second half of the XX Century and which I highly recommend to those who don’t know him.
Next, another new piece (also found at www.ignacioalperin.com) from the second half of this year. It is called “Mr. S’s Spring Rounds” and it is a cheerful homage to all those jazzy versions of Igor Stravinsky’s Spring Round Dances, from his great classical masterpiece “The rite of Spring”.
Well, this is all for now. Oh, one more thing before I forget! A big thank you to Franziska San Pedro from Flavor Designs who named me one of the 15 “hottest” male artists. Franziska does not clarify what she means by hot, but either way, I am very honored!!!!! 🙂
The other 14 hotties and Franziska’s website can be found at http://www.flavordesigns.com/2011/11/15-hottest-artists/.
Back soon with more paintings to show.
