In an article written by Anthony Waichulis titled, “No Strings Attached,” the author discusses the use of the color string palette configuration, a premixed gradation or evolution along a particular axis of hue, value, or chroma.  Although Waichulis does not argue that any one particular device is superior, he does shed some light into his own perspective, including his choice to not employ the color string.  The artist further discusses the difference between an analog and digital dynamic in relation to application, and why he instead utilizes a limited range of foundation paints.To read the article in its entirety, please visit

Commentary by Prudence Williams:The St. Maarten Local Art Exhibition 2016, an impressive event showcasing the work of various Caribbean artists and including apprentices of the Ani Art Academies Anguilla, brought art lovers from a wide array of St. Maarten locations, including both the French and Dutch sides of the island. The artists of Ani Art Academies Anguilla were honored to join such an exclusive exhibition, which displays various types of work including paintings, drawings, and mixed media. Ani artists Romero Richardson and Prudence Williams were on hand to experience the break-taking array of fine work. Richardson commented, " I couldn't believe that the St.Maarten people were so fascinated with art,” while Williams added, " I am so satisfied to know that my birth island took so much interest in art."  Onlookers were sometimes moved to tears by the beauty of the display, with many simply not able to believe that the works were not photographs.Ani Art Academies Anguilla apprentices showcased in the event include Elizardo Mojica, Prudence Williams, Akeem Laing, Canita Ruan, Gineece Gumbs, Romero Richardson, and Shanicia Richardson. The St. Maarten Local Art Exhibition 2016 was truly a huge success, with many pieces of art going home with happy collectors that were thoroughly impressed by the painstaking detail and coordination that was put into the work.  Ani Art Academies were thrilled to take part in this unique event and are looking forward to their own upcoming Anguilla Local Exhibition!

In an interesting article written by Anthony Waichulis, the artist discusses the idea that using a simplified abstraction to understand the mechanics of a phenomenon may be more beneficial in various circumstances.  While Mr. Waichulis was listening to a neuroscience lecture, the professor discussed two very different types of neuron models, one quite complex, and the other being a quite simplified version.  Waichulis realized that, “while the opportunity to incorporate many details into our models may exist, we may only need a simplified abstraction to comprehend the mechanics of a phenomenon.”  The article further discusses this concept in relation to the use of various color systems used by artists today.   To read the article in its entirety, please visit
