Anthony Delbrun – February 25th

Art has been around for a very long time. Art comes in all forms from shapes and sizes. In the three readings each of the authors describes the different elements art can have in them. The reading “Gropius Bauhaus” it explains one of the elements in art which is color, can have some meaning that relate to us on the inside. Color in art usually represents emotions but can mean something else.

The second reading, “Typophoto” by Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, he makes talks about Typography and Photography. Typography deals with communication of words and Photography is communicating visually. He also makes a prediction on how Typography and Photography would evolve in the future and benefit society. Nagy sees Typography and Photography as another form of art and how during the Bauhaus those forms of art helped him to spread his point across.

The third reading, “On Typography” by Herbert Bayer, Bayer describes Typography as a “service art” and not “fine art”. I don’t know what “service” and “fine” has to do with art but my guess is “service” deals with commercial based while “fine” is doing it for fun. Every art has key elements and the main ones are Line, Color, Shape, Form, Value, Space and Texture. I’m guessing the key elements that are lacking in art of the past are definitely color and maybe space.

My name is Anthony Delbrun. I got my name from the biblical Saint of Padua Anthony. I was born on April 26th, 1999 at Kings County Hospital at approximately 5:27pm. I lived in Brooklyn, NY, USA for all my life but as for my parents they were born in Haiti. I come from a Haiti background but I barely speak the language. As a young boy growing in East Flatbush, I was a shy boy who didn't speak up for myself until the age of 7. What made me enroll in the Communication Design field is my passion for videogames and drawing. While growing I never really had a career decided for myself. The fact that there were so many jobs out there to my liking I couldn't choose. First I wanted to work at a pizzeria since I love to eat pizza. Second, I wanted to be a scientist because I wanted to make a time machine and take a blast from the past. Now we ALL know that's not possible. Lastly, I made up a fantasy career of becoming a “Bus-Driver-Crasher” meaning I'd drive a bus and crash into many objects and people. That had to be one of the dumbest ideas for a career ever! But since I was a little boy at that time I made it up, that's fine. It wasn't until my cousin from my dad's side who introduced me to videogames and drawing. From there on I experienced a passion for them, thus motivated me to become a Graphic Designer in videogames. Plus I wanted some excitement in my life. My skills are average but I’m still learning some techniques here and there so they will be useful in this field. A tagline to remember me is this: “Hard-work beats natural talent!” Also, I have an addiction to Japanese Anime! Look at my profile picture for example.
