Alessandra Di Paola, illustrations and moods

Claudia Fuggetti · 7 months ago · Art

Alessandra Di Paola lives in Palermo, but studied at the illustration school “Officina B5” in Rome. Her works have the great ability to express moods and emotions in an effective and creative way.

Alessandra explains:

“I like to mix techniques and colours to tell small stories in every single illustration”.

Each illustration is different from the previous one, revealing a very versatile and eclectic artist, able to manage with mastery the various techniques. The scenes of everyday life are reinterpreted in an introspective, emotional way, within a timeless dimension.

Nature, love and a typically feminine delicacy are also very present. The symbol of the heart seems to be omnipresent and is expressed in all its various meanings and nuances.

Behind The Music, the latest Apple commercial that pays tribute to British music

Behind The Music, the latest Apple commercial that pays tribute to British music

Giulia Guido · 7 months ago · Art

English music has always been a landmark for musicians, producers, and singers. From the 1960s to the punk of the following decade, from the Beatles to the immortal Bowie, and even younger musicians like CharliXCX and FKA Twigs, England has always known what it means to make music. Great music. So, by updating the advertising campaign “Behind The Mac“, Apple released a new and nostalgic commercial entitled “Behind The Music“.

Apparently, if behind every great man there is a great woman, behind a great music success there is a Mac. In the one-minute spot we see our English musical idols in the production or recording stages that always work behind an Apple screen. 

It’s a journey through English music history, a journey through our history.

Elyse Dodge, multi-faceted acrylic paintings

Elyse Dodge, multi-faceted acrylic paintings

Claudia Fuggetti · 7 months ago · Art

With their bright colours and many facets, this is how the acrylic paintings of Elyse Dodge, an artist from Vancouver, look. The process is to decompose the landscape in an abstract way, in order to synthesize the emotions and the play of light through well-defined geometric compositions, alternating with soft brushstrokes.

In this regard, the artist explains that:

“The process of discovery, deconstruction and reconstruction of landscapes in minimal works of art has become my obsession. During this journey, I realized that even when nature is broken down into its most basic forms and colours, it remains beautiful“.


Elyse wants to bring the viewer to imagine new scenarios and to appreciate at best what nature offers us, that’s why each table tries to instill a sense of inner peace and serenity to those who need it.

Art becomes the main means to achieve a condition of inner and outer tranquility, accompanied by the rediscovery of nature. Follow Elyse on her Instagram profile, which you will find here.

Alvaro Naddeo: watercolours of a dystopian world

Alvaro Naddeo: watercolours of a dystopian world

Claudia Fuggetti · 7 months ago · Art

What will happen when the unbridled consumerism of capitalist societies has totally destroyed the Earth?

Brazilian artist Alvaro Naddeo has tried to represent him through his watercolours, which represent a strongly dystopian imaginary, reminiscent of the aesthetics of the favelas. The brands and logos of the past become part of a narrative that prefers pop language, characterized by a decadent mood.

The city becomes a sort of large open-air dump, where rusty goods, disused vans, become part of an immense slum: it is a world ruled by objects and not by the human being.

To create these illustrations, Alvaro composes his drawing by hand, and then digitizes everything with Photoshop. In addition, the artist declared that he was inspired by old magazines:

“I think of the stickers and posters I had in my room as a teenager or the group of brands I liked at some point in time. I also research old magazines and look at advertisements that share a specific era. It’s a very fun and nostalgic exercise”.

After gaining experience in the field of advertising graphics, Alvaro decided to represent the “duality” of these images. If you are interested in the work of this artist, please visit his Instagram profile here.

Sculptures by Jerzy Kedziora aka Jotka defy gravity

Sculptures by Jerzy Kedziora aka Jotka defy gravity

Giulia Guido · 7 months ago · Art

Jerzy Kedziora studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk and continued his studies in Poznań, experiencing the political and cultural climate of Poland in the 1990s. The artist, also known as Jotka, was inspired by the history of the country, from the transition from a situation of uncertainty to the creation of a balance. 

So he decided to convey this sense of instability to his public through his art, his works. They are sculptures that represent human figures, so far nothing new, but have a particularity that makes them unique and inimitable. 

His characters are suspended in mid-air, like tightrope walkers, in the middle of streets, parks, shopping malls. Any public space can become the stage for Jerzy Kedziora. 

The balance of his sculptures is precarious, looking at them he only waits for the moment in which they crumble to the ground, but never happens. Perennially poised between falling and flying.
