A variety of art thread, not necessarily little known

Whatever comes your way!

I really like this twitter account

https://twitter.com/womensart1 which has a number of pics of stuff added each day,

And when googling what happened to Tanita Tikaram, of another twist in her sobriety fame, I found she has a rather nice twitter account too

@ScarredForLife2 - the dark side of 70s-80s popular culture

@GrimArtGroup - art, of the kitchen sink variety

@modernistestate - 20th century architecture

@ahistoryinart - bit mainstream, but some great discoveries

@HenryRothwell - as above, occasional gems

@osaumarezsmith - architecture

@VintageBarCart - interiors from 70s Habitat adverts and that kind of thing

@richard_littler - creator of Scarfolk. Random quirky stuff

@CyberSaffron - contemporary female photographer. Quirky and interesting.

Heh. Not bad.

#7 Yes, I can see you preferring the gloomy and more geometrical scene.

Shadrack22 - 06 May 2022 20:11:47 (#10 of 96)

Guilty as charged.

I like @LBFlyawayhome, which is someone posting images from old Ladybird books. Some of them are familiar from childhood, so it is partly nostalgia. They can be overly soft-edged (an idealised and often pastoral vision of England, too much CF Tunicliife), but occasionally they are stranger, particularly when picturing the new world of technology - computers, plastics, modem architecture, nuclear power. A very optimistic, almost utopian view of modernity which fifty years later is ‘the future that was.’

BH Robinson used to do a lot of the illustrations of modern life:

#11 where is that large Keir Starmer statue?

I’d seen the ladybird book account before but generally find the illustration style too wishy washy. They are of social historical interest though (some of them) - that aspect is partly why I like tptv.

Going *much* further back in time, how about a medieval bat?

Did Tanita Tikaram ever cheer up at all?

breakfast - 07 May 2022 15:07:11 (#17 of 96)

I don’t know.

Here are some cheery clothing designs though -
