The world and its flaws in Daniel Garcia’s illustrations

Giulia Guido · 9 months ago · Art

Current events in all their forms inspire the works of Daniel Garcia. Born in Lisbon, Daniel Garcia has stood out thanks to his illustrations that manage to give a precise and straightforward point of view on issues related to politics, the world of social media, the environment. Daniel is not the first artist to use his art to convey his critical thinking, for example, a while ago we talked about Pawel Kuczynski.

With a simple and colorful style, Daniel Garcia’s message manages to reach everyone without distinction. This ability has allowed him to work for some of the most important European newspapers and not only, including L’Espresso, Le Monde Libertaire, Periodico Diagonal, and GQ UK.

Gross Domestic Product, Banksy’s store in London

Gross Domestic Product, Banksy’s store in London

Claudia Fuggetti · 9 months ago · Art

You can’t enter inside the Gross Domestic Product store, but the windows on the street are full of Banksy‘s works of art and objects that recall his work through drawings and decorations.

In the same vein as Dismaland, the store is the artist’s latest invention to criticize the main problems of the global society: forced human migration, the exploitation of animals and the state of surveillance. Tony the Tiger (Kellogg’s cereal mascot) sacrificed as a living room carpet, wooden dolls delivering their children to smugglers in freight truck trailers, and welcome carpets sewn by lifejackets: the window in South London represents a capitalist dystopia.

In a statement on the project, Banksy explained that the main input that gave him the impetus to make the store is a legal battle between the artist and a greeting card company that disputes the brand that Banksy cares about his art.

It will be possible to buy the items in the physical store on a special online platform, which will be activated in the coming days, while the physical store will remain open for the next two weeks in the neighborhood of Croydon.

In perfect Banksy style, the items sold will be used to buy a new ship for the Ong Open Arms, which has long operated in the Mediterranean to help migrants.

Spenser Little, wire sculptures for the city

Spenser Little, wire sculptures for the city

Claudia Fuggetti · 9 months ago · Art

Californian artist Spenser Little has spent the last 15 years creating sculptures modeled with wire, resulting in beautiful portraits. His sculptures have been installed on street lamps and other existing structures around the world and have been exhibited at numerous exhibitions.

Most of his works have been made by the artist using a single continuous wire, others have required the intervention of several parts.

Spenser Little bends the rigid material using a pair of pliers until the figure fits the image he has in mind. The creations have a double personality and alternate irony and playfulness with a reflection on our society, so obsessed with technology.

Many of the artist’s works have been placed in galleries, such as the Thinkspace Gallery, while others have been left in the street, revealing their street soul.

Mythology and alchemy in MonkeyBird’s murals

Mythology and alchemy in MonkeyBird’s murals

Claudia Fuggetti · 9 months ago · Art

The duo of anonymous artists MonkeyBird creates large murales that take up the visual stylistic tradition associated with the world of mythology and alchemy.

The two Bordeaux-based artists live traveling around the world and working both externally and internally; they will soon be in Moscow until October 11 for a new project. Members of MonkeyBird have stated that their training in graphic design and industrial design has played a decisive role in shaping their imagery.

MonkeyBird’s style is made up of recurring elements such as the articulated black and white drawings of mythological animal-creatures, enriched with gold chloride, a hue that immediately makes one think of the graphics of ancient sacred texts. Most of the duo’s works of art depict a humanoid monkey and a bird representing “the two faces of mankind: the monkey is realistic, and the bird is a dreamer,” as the 5Art Gallery in Paris reaffirmed.

Essential elements linked to a consolidated visual tradition such as classical architecture, timing devices, and scales add to the couple’s timeless appearance.

The body of the woman in Sasha Podgurska’s paintings

The body of the woman in Sasha Podgurska’s paintings

Claudia Fuggetti · 9 months ago · Art

Sasha Podgurska is a Ukrainian painter who portrays the woman’s body in its complex harmony of forms. Relaxing, dancing and sunbathing by the sea: her subjects, mostly naked, are full of joie de vivre.

“I try to represent the carefree way of living in harmony with nature, as well as women who enjoy the gifts and beauty of the Mediterranean environment”.

After studying drawing, art history, ancient Greek mythology and psychology at school, Sasha spontaneously turned to the artistic nude, inspired by the hyper-realistic details of Renaissance works.

The artist also loves to experiment and does so using watercolors and other types of techniques. Each scene represents moments of everyday life in a voluptuous and sensual key, whether it is a trip to the beach or a moment of return with friends.

Find out more about Sasha’s work on her website.
