Artfucker cigarettes are the symbol of a society dominated by marketing

Artfucker cigarettes are the symbol of a society dominated by marketing

Giulia Guido · 9 months ago · Art

Probably, wandering in the meanders of Instagram some work of the New York artist known by the name of Artfucker you have surely seen it. His latest project consists of a series of images of cigarette packs on which – instead of the brand name or warnings – have been placed logos of recognizable brands such as Coca-Cola or Evian or characters like Jesus, Barbie or Mickey Mouse. 

Artfucker plays with us, with society as a whole, turning an inappropriate and negative product like cigarettes, or more generally smoking, into something that attracts us and that we consider beautiful. 

At the heart of Artfucker’s artistic research is the idea that we now live in a society dominated by marketing strategies and have been accustomed to trusting what we see written about the products we buy. But what happens when these warnings change? 

The works in this series will be part of The Smoke Show, Artfucker’s third solo show that will open to the public on September 21 in Brooklyn.

Spotify spot celebrates who stays in the car to listen to a song until the end

Spotify spot celebrates who stays in the car to listen to a song until the end

Giulia Guido · 9 months ago · Art

It’s a strange feeling, a personal satisfaction, a moment we carve out for ourselves. I’m talking about when we arrive at our destination with the car already parked, we decide to wait for the end of a song before getting off. It’s a habit that we all have in common, a legacy of those years when there were no aux or Bluetooth cables and when they gave the radio your favorite song everything went into the background. We were willing to keep our boyfriends, friends, and doctors waiting to hear it until the last chord. 

The last spot by Spotify shows how, although times have changed, waiting for the end of a song with the engine switched off and comfortably seated behind the wheel is still a widespread habit. 

In the 80-second video entitled “Let the Song Play” we see several people who, in order to sing all of Sia’s Elastic Heart, make their soccer buddies, grandparents or the valet wait. 

The commercial is part of the For The Ride campaign and was created to promote new playlists designed specifically to be listened to in the car, such as “Your Daily Drive” which includes a mix of songs, podcasts, and news. 

If after all, this is not understandable the message of Spotify the message will take care of the claim to clarify things definitively: 

“The best thing to happen in cars since the stereo.”

“1, 2, 3, Soleil,” Seth’s exhibition mixes classic and contemporary

“1, 2, 3, Soleil,” Seth’s exhibition mixes classic and contemporary

Giulia Guido · 9 months ago · Art

Apparently, an 18th-century neoclassical building and a street artist have little in common, but Seth‘s latest exhibition, with its original titles 1, 2, 3, Soleil is proof of how true masterpieces are born from the most daring and strange combinations. 

Until October 7, the Institut Culturel Bernard Magrez in Bordeaux will host a selection of works and installations by the artist who aims to be a bridge, between old and new, between tradition and innovation, between classic and contemporary. 

The rooms of the historic building will be filled with a thousand bright colors that have made the art of Seth recognizable and unique within the vast contemporary art scene. Each space will deal with a theme related to the different trips that Seth has made and the places he has visited. Each work, then, will tell about countries, cultures, and realities far and different, stimulating the reflection of the viewer.

The original imperfection of Gleb Pesoc’s tattoos

The original imperfection of Gleb Pesoc’s tattoos

Giulia Guido · 9 months ago · Art

His name is Gleb Pesoc and you can find him on Instagram, where he is enjoying increasing success, with the nickname @g.pesoc. Tattoo artist of Russian origin, today Gleb travels the world thanks to his profession, branding his customers’ skin with works with an original style. 

Forget for a moment the hyper-realistic and super detailed tattoos with nuances created with precise and careful skill. Gleb Pesoc’s tattoos are perfect in their imperfection. They seem almost sketchy, as if they had been designed on a napkin or by a child, but no less beautiful than all the others. 

In fact, thanks to colors and a few lines, the meaning of his works is always immediately comprehensible. 

In our gallery you can find a selection of them.
