ROSALÍA – F*cking Money Man (Milionària + Dio$ No$ Libre Del Dinero)

Maybe ROSALÍA started counting all the money she earned in the last period and wanted to say that being a Milionaria is a problem: “One day you want to be a millionaire and the next day burn everything, in reality, how much does money matter? It seems so pure to look for it as to deny it, and I think we’ve all felt love-hate for money once.”
The first part of the video stars ROSALÍA as a contestant on a game show where she rakes in large sums of cash. In the second part we find the Spanish singer performing under a cash shower.

Post Malone – Goodbyes ft. Young Thug

At first it looks like Grease, then it becomes Zombie IV.

Snoop Dogg – I Wanna Thank Me

“I wanna thank me for believing in me. I wanna thank me for doing all this hard work. I wanna thank me for having no days off. I wanna thank me for never quitting”. The video is a bit self-referential, but Snoop Dogg can do anything.

Oscar Lang – Hey ft. Alfie Templeman

The perfect tune to whistle this summer walking with the arms behind your back. Oscar Lang’s new track Hey is accompanied by one of the most psychedelic and stupid videos ever.

Dreamville – Revenge (Documentary)

J. Cole’s new Dreamville compilation Revenge of the Dreamers III is out today and here is the documentary called Revenge which captures the sessions behind the album.

Yuna, Little Simz – Pink Youth

Written and directed by Esteban Valdez, the animated video for Yuna’s new track Pink Youth (ft. Little Simz) stars the former saving the world from forces trying to capture all colour and hope from humanity. “When I was younger, I remember a lot of people didn’t believe in me just because I was a girl trying to do something amazing … this song is for all the girls out there who never got the encouragement and support they deserve“.

Divino Niño – Flamingo

Love everything in this video.

Bat For Lashes – Kids In The Dark

We don’t fully understand the dark side of this romantic new video for Kids In The Dark. So, if you have an epiphany, let us know.

Mae Muller – Anticlimax

The spell of the week.

Stand By Me (dal film La mia vita con John F. Donovan di Xavier Dolan)

Even if it’s not a music video, seeing it will do you good.
– for all the times that you didn’t give a hug, that you didn’t said anything, that you haven’t told the truth.

Keith Haring: Street Art Boy, the new BBC film

Keith Haring: Street Art Boy, the new BBC film

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Art

It was February 16, 1990, when one of the most influential and emblematic contemporary artists died prematurely, ripped from life by AIDS. This year, on the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of Keith Haring‘s death, the BBC has produced a film that retraces the artist’s story. 

Titled Keith Haring: Street Art Boy, the film recounts in just under an hour and a half some of the most emblematic episodes and encounters in Haring’s life. The works are interwoven with images, interviews with Keith himself and unpublished footage from the archives of the Haring Foundation and made available to the BBC. 

Through the artist’s life is also told the New York of the 80s and 90s, the art and creativity that exploded at every corner, but also AIDS and fear. 

Keith Haring: Street Art Boy is directed by Ben Anthony and was broadcast for the first time on the BBC Two channel on July 4th, but you can watch it again on the BBC streaming site, iPlayer

This fascinating and compelling film – told using previously unheard interviews with Haring, which form the narrative of the documentary – is the definitive story of the artist in his own words.

“Safe House”, Keer’s work inspired by Christo and Jeanne-Claude

“Safe House”, Keer’s work inspired by Christo and Jeanne-Claude

Emanuele D'Angelo · 1 month ago · Art

Inspired by the great couple Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Leon Keer, one of the most important artists in the world of anamorphic street art, has recently created “Safe House”.

His latest work presents a gift box in trompe l’oeil on the tympanum of a building.
“It is not obvious for everyone to have a roof over their head, your home is precious and gives you comfort and protection, a gift for the necessary needs of life.”

“Safe House” is a packaged house, artfully crafted with a great optical illusion is a tribute to Christo and Jeanne-Claude, it was made for MX29 Graffiti Tour 2020 organized by Ateliers du Graff.
The Dutch artist wants us to reflect on the importance of having a roof over our heads, something that we very often take for granted, but which, as he says, is fundamental.

Harry Greb’s mural dedicated to Ennio Morricone

Harry Greb’s mural dedicated to Ennio Morricone

Giulia Pacciardi · 1 month ago · Art

In the heart of Trastevere, more precisely in Via delle Fratte di Trastevere, on the corner of Via dei Fienaroli, the Roman neighborhood where Ennio Morricone was born and grew up, a new mural dedicated to him stands out since yesterday.
It is the work of the prolific street artist Harry Greb, who is no stranger to this type of tribute. Over the years, in fact, he has titled walls to leading Italian figures of our times such as Alberto Sordi, Anna Magnani and Rino Gaetano.

In Greb’s vision, Morricone looks fixedly at us through his glasses, with a luminous crown resting on his head, the Academy Honorary Award in his left hand and his right hand busy mimicking the gesture of silence.

The opera dedicated to the Roman composer appeared yesterday afternoon, just a few hours after his death which shook the hearts of most.

Glen Martin Taylor and his reconstructed ceramics

Glen Martin Taylor and his reconstructed ceramics

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Art

Among the most famous and fascinating artistic techniques, the ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi undoubtedly stands out. It is a practice born from the idea of transforming an imperfection, a damage or a wound into something even more beautiful and perfect. Basically, this technique consists in repairing ceramic objects, even those of daily use such as cups and plates, using gold or cast silver to weld the shards. The final result gives the object a unique look and, what is no small thing, a much higher value than the original. It is precisely from the art of Kintsugi that the artist Glen Martin Taylor was inspired for his works. 

Like the Japanese, Glen Martin Taylor repairs ceramics of all kinds, some made by him and others bought but replacing precious metal with everyday objects, from twine threads to metal elements. 

If in Kintsugi’s art the only important part is that of repair, for the artist the act of reassembling objects is as important as that of destroying them. Through these two phases, the artist frees his emotions and confronts them by creating objects that will eventually have lost their primary purpose, but not their importance.
