Duda’s tattoos look like patches sewn on the skin

Duda’s tattoos look like patches sewn on the skin

Claudia Fuggetti · 9 months ago · Art

Tattooist Eduardo Lozano, aka Duda, is considered the pioneer of patch tattooing, a technique that is really depopulating. Only three months have passed since the Brazilian artist started tattooing with this unique style: the embroidered patch is composed of lines that imitate the satin stitch, as well as the binding that prevents the edges from fraying.

The fraying and Duda’s ability to fade every detail makes these tattoos three-dimensional works of art with a unique personality. His creations focus on originality and it is no coincidence that before dedicating himself to the world of tattoos, the artist worked with logos and embroidered shirts.

Eduardo has been invited to tattoo conventions around the world and his work continues to conquer the web.

Watchmen, the highly anticipated HBO TV series, has finally got a trailer!

Watchmen, the highly anticipated HBO TV series, has finally got a trailer!

Giulia Guido · 9 months ago · Art

Forget the 2009 film, because Watchmen, the next HBO product to arrive in the fall, is true that it is based on the famous comic book by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbson, but the story differs from the original. 

The television version signed by Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftlovers, Star Trek) will always be set in the world invented by Moore and Gibbson, but not in the period of the Cold War but in our days, when superheroes have survived but treated as outlaws. In the trailer, we see, in fact, Rorschach at the head of what may seem like a modern secret organization.

The story will probably see the clash between the superheroes-outlaws disciples of Rorschach clashing against the police wearing yellow masks. Will this version be able to live up to the previous ones? 

The cast has exceptional names: Jeremy Irons will play Ozymandias and will be joined by Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, and Louis Gossett Jr.

Watchmen has not yet had an official release date, while I suggest you watch the trailer.

Jan Kaláb’s hypnotic and colourful murals

Jan Kaláb’s hypnotic and colourful murals

Claudia Fuggetti · 9 months ago · Art

Jan Kaláb, is a street artist also known as POINT or CAKES who works mainly outdoors. The Czech artist grew up in Eastern Europe during the Cold War, where graffiti and the street art scene was non-existent.

That’s why in the 1990s, Kaláb paved the way for the street community that would soon be formed. His works are abstract works characterized by hypnotic and colorful concentric circles that the artist has repeatedly defined as:

“An obsessive vocabulary for endless variations around depth, time and movement.”

The play between structure and perception in his vibrant murals has also conquered the galleries, in fact his first solo exhibition “SHAPE & TONE” has just ended at the Fabien Castanier Gallery in Miami.

Lupanar, the infinity in the installation by Nicolas Tourte

Lupanar, the infinity in the installation by Nicolas Tourte

Claudia Fuggetti · 9 months ago · Art

The interactive installation Lupanar was presented for the first time at Interstice #10 in Caen, and has been around the world ever since. We are talking about the work of the French digital artist Nicolas Tourte, who ironically deals with what is the role of man within the entire universe.

His research focuses mainly on cycles, repetition and the virtual world: Nicolas tries to represent the invisible mechanisms that govern our lives. Part of these representations are both impulsive and ready-made, ideas that the artist wants to share immediately with his audience.

The monumental video installation Lupanar has been conceived as a stream, which invades the surrounding space infinitely and envelops the viewer in its immersive reality.

Take a look at the video of Lunapar below:

The dynamism in Jee-ook Choi’s illustrations

The dynamism in Jee-ook Choi’s illustrations

Claudia Fuggetti · 9 months ago · Art

What can I say, the illustrations by South Korean artist Jee-ook Choi, are really hypnotic! Its colourful, lively and cryptic style makes it one of the most particular illustrator around. Playing with what characterizes everyday life, bright colours and exaggerated details merge, resulting in unusual at first glance.

If we were to look for an artistic reference, we would most likely immediately think of Escher: impossible perspective tangles subvert the natural order, to create a completely new one.

The dynamism and freshness of each scene earned her the cover of Peggy Gou’s album Once, released on March 2, 2018. Jee-ook has explained several times that she loves to recreate surreal moments within reality, as if they were epiphanies from the subconscious.
