I would like to introduce you to yet another FABULOUS artist! His name is Phil Hansen and his website is http://philinthecircle.com/index.html and on his Youtube.com page.
He is one of these artists that not only has incredible skill (and i mean INCREDIBLE!) but he also really thinks about the content and its context. I would not go so far to say he is political, but he does make comments on society by his choice of subject.
He also has such an amazing ability to create by thinking outside the box. I spent a whole day a while back just watching all of his videos. It is great that there is something like youtube because otherwise, we would never get a chance to see a lot of the works because they are not made to last, just like this one that i am going to show you. However, the ending is so fitting to Amy Winehouse‘s life. It is a really beautiful yet sad ending just like with her life.
Phil did this piece BEFORE Amy Winehouse died, but after, he thought he should upload the video as a tribute. He can do anything with anything and i urge you to check out some of his other works on Youtube because you can truly not appreciate how talented this guy is until you see that he can karate chop a picture of Bruce Lee to peeing in the snow a picture of Lassie.
I highly encourage you to take a minute and enjoy the creative stylings of Mr. Phil Hansen or “Phil in the circle”.
