Gifts for Art Lovers : The Art of Clifford Faust

Fancy contemporary art? Do you also fancy the BBC Masterpiece Contemporary movies or television series? Well then! We have something in common. Bare with me as we take this circuitous route to introduce you to a wonderful contemporary artist who captures famous African-Americans entertainers, mostly jazz (or soul and R&B) musicians, with his own unique style and flair. In other words, he makes them look even jazzier.

The BBC political thriller is titled “Page Eight”. It is about a British intelligence analyst who refuses to compromise his integrity.

What happens to him is what usually happens when civil servants will not budge on their ideals of Right versus Wrong, and their ideals do not line up with their boss, i.e., the chief executive leader who says I know what is best for our country and I am the one in charge with the authority!

In his case, Mr. Worricker (the character masterfully played by Bill Nighy) butts heads with the British Prime Minister. He found some real information on page 8 of an intelligence report that points a finger in the direction of the Prime Minister and …

He has to leave his job? No. Rather he chooses that it is time for him to resign from the MI-5 service and move on. To spice up this not “atypical” political thriller plot, he meets a young woman that he has the power to help. The specific scene in the program that struck my fancy was when he invited the lady into his apartment and showed her his art collection. Do not remember the exact quote but it was something to effect: Started collecting a while back and there’s really no pattern or rhyme or reason. I just buy what I like. Fancy contemporary art?

Not an exact quote however that describes my concept of the perfect art collection method. Would be nice if all of the pieces admired could also be purchased. Maybe one day. Art is an excellent financial investment. Via Pinterest, my blogs, and sites where my articles are contributed, the work of Artists I Fancy is shared with others. This is the lead-in to introduce you to the artwork of Clifford Faust (pictured).

What is O-O-CA-NYC? No those aren’t credentials. That is the route Mr. Faust took to end up where he is right now. He was born in Oklahoma, grew up in Oregon, attended art school in California, also worked in California for a while – but currently he lives and works in New York City.

He has an impressive series of African-American musicians which includes Louis Armstrong, Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald and two artists who are part of the soundtrack of my life: James Brown and Stevie Wonder.
