“The Alphabet for Kids & Adults”, Elsa Majimbo x Valentino

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Art

Maison Valentino has always had a strong connection with the world of art and culture and in recent years this relationship has intensified through various collaborations with international talents. The latest initiative has led the fashion house to collaborate side by side with Elsa Majimbo.

Elsa Majimbo is a Kenyan-born writer, comedian and actress who has already achieved worldwide success at only 19 years of age. Her fame has grown especially in the last year, during which she has used quarantine periods to create content that is both funny and addresses a variety of issues. 

These qualities led her to be the perfect person for a collaboration with Maison Valentino, with whom she created the book ‘The Alphabet for Kids & Adults’

The book – officially launched on 20 March and intended for friends and people selected by Valentino and the young writer – can be considered a 2.0 primer for children and adults. 

For each letter, illustrated by Pepijn Temming with bold, funny and colourful graphics, Elsa Majimbo, together with author and comedian Mo Kheir, has written two sentences, one for the youngest and one for the oldest, both characterised by the comedy that has made her famous all over the world.

With “The Alphabet for Kids & Adults”, Maison Valentino and Elsa Majimbo propose a new reading and interpretation of the world around us. 

A book by Elsa Majimbo, Presented by Valentino, with Words by Elsa Majimbo & Mo Kheir and Illustrations by Pepijn Temming

AdeY’s shots challenges the perception of the human body

AdeY’s shots challenges the perception of the human body

Federica Cimorelli · 2 weeks ago · Photography

AdeY is a Swedish-British experimental artist who, through photography, highlights the vulnerability, loneliness and strength of his subjects, capturing those small moments of social oppression, isolation, anxiety and depression that seem to play a central role in the human condition. Each of his images portrays the body in its purest form and creates a non-sexualised representation of humankind, based on acceptance.

With a background in performance, choreography and contemporary dance, AdeY focuses on differences in physics, gender, race and sexuality, but not only. The artist challenges the perception of the body in many ways, through an inner and outer analysis of the world.
Her art recognises that not only do people change in relation to their environment, but that the environment adapts to them accordingly. In her photographs the human body with its shapes, aspects and three-dimensionality moves through space and studies the balance and physics of the world around it.

See a selection of his shots here and follow him on Instagram. AdeY is represented by The Little Black Gallery London. Many of his artworks are available online from www.girlsgirlsgirls.org and www.boysboysboys.org

Peter Kaaden’s explicit NSFW photographs

Peter Kaaden’s explicit NSFW photographs

Giulia Pacciardi · 1 week ago · Photography

In Peter Kaaden‘s photographs, not much space is left to the imagination.
His images, strongly and deliberately explicit, portray different parts of the body with clear and erotic close-ups, sometimes, a little bit disgusting.

Nipples, lips, butts, legs, bellies, hands, eyes, breasts and arms are the only protagonists of shots that represent the most real nudity, without any censorship.
Censorship that, although it may seem the opposite, is something that he appreciates and conceives, but not in modern means of artistic communication where a nipple cannot be shown while any other kind of violence is allowed.

His art, as he himself tells, shows something with which each of us coexists, more or less in the same way, in a brazen way.
His imaginary has earned him, among others, several publications in magazines such as Dazed, Schön, Rolling Stones and GQ but also many collaborations with fashion brands.

Here you will find a selection of his photographs, here, instead, all the others.

Humans and Landscapes, Ekayyne’s project blends nature and the human body.

Humans and Landscapes, Ekayyne’s project blends nature and the human body.

Giulia Guido · 1 week ago · Photography

Brussels-based artist and graphic designer Ekayyne uses his Instagram profile as a stage to show the works that make up the Humans and Landscapes project. As you can imagine from the title, the artist’s graphics blend in an original way landscape, from white and endless beaches to flowering meadows, and body parts. 

The process of creation begins with the phase of searching for images that take place on the Internet, especially on Tumbler. Only once this first part has been completed does one move on to assembling the images, looking for common elements such as lines or textures. 

The peculiarity of Ekayyne’s graphics is that the union of the two images is not hidden, on the contrary, it is often made even more evident by the contrast between shapes and colors. 

In any case, the result is always surprising, in which the lines of the sand dunes become those of a woman’s body, the skin turns into sand and a nightdress turns into frothy waves of the sea. 

Discover some of Ekayyne’s works in our gallery.
