Enya Honami illustrates sentōs, the characteristic Japanese public baths

Giulia Guido · 11 months ago · Art

The Japanese illustrator Enya Honami came to this art form almost by chance, in fact, we could say that it was fate. After graduation, Enya found a job in an architecture studio, but after a short time, smothered by the amount of work and stress she got sick and doctors advised her to take a rest. During this break, she discovered the sentōs, the characteristic Japanese public pay toilets. Unique places where the culture of personal hygiene and cleanliness of the body, seen from the Japanese tradition as an act of purification, has its highest expression.

It is precisely these places that become the main subjects of the illustrations of Enya, who with a style that pays particular attention to detail manages to restore the atmosphere of the sentō. Besides being beautiful, these illustrations are not only made to be looked at in this way, superficially but to be studied and experienced.

F is For Fendi, the campaign signed by Blake Kathryn

Claudia Fuggetti · 11 months ago · Art

Blake Kathryn is an artist from Los Angeles who creates drawings characterized by a vibrant palette of surreal nuances, enhanced by the 3D technique. For the F is For Fendi campaign, the artist has created a series of sensual three-dimensional illustrations in pastel tones that highlight Fendi’s Peekaboo bag collection.

Kathryn’s colourful images also enhance femininity through Roman sculptural architecture elements, paying homage to the deep historical roots of the Italian fashion brand. Looking at her images, you can perceive a sense of timeless hedonism, which sees the woman as a muse poised between past and future, a lover of beauty and elegance.

The Lift, the most beautiful spot you can watch this week

The Lift, the most beautiful spot you can watch this week

Giulia Guido · 11 months ago · Art

We can now say that advertising has become an art in all its aspects. Small and large brands increasingly rely on creative agencies able to find yet another brilliant idea to advertise their product. The commercial I want to talk about here is The Lift, for the footwear brand BIANCO, a brilliant video to say the least. 

Throughout the video we follow a boy and a girl who meet in the elevator. Based on their thoughts they seem made for each other, but it’s these that stop them from talking to each other. 

That told is a beautiful love story that, despite everything, we all experienced, why admit it, how many times did you fall in love with a person met by chance, for a minute on the subway or in a store? 

Don’t hope that I reveal the ending, because it is absolutely to be seen.

The fragility and shortness of life in Tenia’s illustrations

The fragility and shortness of life in Tenia’s illustrations

Giulia Guido · 11 months ago · Art

Symbols and images that recall the occult magic of the Middle Ages are at the center of Tenia‘s artistic research, the stage name of Gianluca Gambino. Born in 1986, Tenia has always been fascinated by art, but only at a mature age he began his career as an illustrator. His style manages to blend the realism of forms with the surrealism of the subjects.

Realized with ink or digitally, his works all have the lowest common denominator, they all try to investigate the meaning of Memento Mori, which from Latin means Remember you must die. This explains the gloomy settings and terrifying subjects that populate his illustrations that manage to fully represent the fragility of the human being, a fragility that has always been linked to his mortal being. 

But this reflection on the brevity of life should spur the viewer to transform this awareness into the drive needed to live their lives to the fullest. 

Abandon yourself to this surreal and macabre world and discover his works in our gallery and on his Instagram profile

The Suicide Squad will be a total reboot

The Suicide Squad will be a total reboot

Claudia Fuggetti · 11 months ago · Art

After the news that sees James Gunn busy for the realization of the third chapter of Guardians of the Galaxy, another important news is the one about the reboot of The Suicide Squad.

According to the film’s producer, Peter Safran, the next chapter will be a “total reboot” from David Ayer’s 2016 film.

“First of all, we don’t call it Suicide Squad 2 because it’s a total reboot, so it’s The Suicide Squad, and I think people should be extremely excited about it. That’s all you could hope for [to see] in a script by James Gunn, and I think that says a lot about [the project], and it promises a lot, and I know we’ll be up to it.

With the total reboot, consequently, there was also talk of a total recast, which would involve the allocation of roles to a new cast. This makes the project a real challenge, given the incredible success of Jared Leto as Jocker and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.
