My Friend Michelle
SACHA, a self taught New York Artist, 1965. SACHA has been active as an artist since he was 15, having shown his work in South America, Europe and in the United States. In his work, SACHA was always fascinated with movement and to SACHA, movement is Circulism.
SACHA has created a different way to paint, a technique which he calls Circulism. Circulism is a old drawing technique done with the use of pencils and color pencils, but SACHA has taken it a step further.
Since 2003, SACHA mixes the colors by making circles with use of toothpicks and nails. This Technique can be used with most types of paints and on most surfaces, like wood and glass. He scratches the surface always making circles and brings out the whiteness of the canvas or what ever the color or colors of the surface maybe. Up-close you can see and feel the texture of the tiny and large circles. You can also see how SACHA, with just one color can create shades by just applying more or less circles. This is why there is Movement through out his Art.

A review written by Gary Peterson states: "SACHA’s still-life’s are poetic and his figurative art, anecdotal. They are self-aware delineations with a unique formal aesthetic owing to his meticulous method of tinting and shading the painted surfaces by etching circles with a toothpick or nail: Circulism. These orbital reverberations impart a harmonious molecular frisson in the eye of the beholder.
His images are like idealized specimens in a natural history museum, vignettes of life displayed in comfortable picture-planes. There are no loose ends in these well-balanced compositions. Both emblematic and decorative, they are each a tightly choreographed narrative, an existential play in which the viewer becomes viewed.

Hello Sacha,

As a Brooklyn artist, I write you today to share Brooklyn’s greatest public artwork.

Why it is unknown is a mystery.  Nobody knows it exists.

The Tower of the Empire State Building bisects the Arch in Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza.

Landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted and architect Calvert Vaux created the framework for this continuing work-in-progress as the Civil War ended, 25 years before the Arch, 65 years before the Tower, 105 years before the Mirador, and 145 years before I stumbled across it.

In starting the “Grand Army Plaza” group here at Brooklyn Arts Project, I hope to share ideas on how to raise public awareness to protect and promote this View as an “historic visual corridor.”  Building Six of Atlantic Yards threatens to eclipse the view. 

Please forward the links to friends, artists, architects, bloggers, politicos, media and civilians. 

Your friend, Richard
