Fuorisalone 2019: the car signed by Guillermo Santomá

Fuorisalone 2019: the car signed by Guillermo Santomá

Claudia Fuggetti · 10 months ago · Art

It’s made of Rimowa‘s suitcases, the aluminum machine exhibited inside the Spazio Maiocchi on the occasion of Design Week in Milan. Both the creative studio Kaleidoscope and the famous Spanish designer Guillermo Santomá took part in the project.

The car has been named Gas in honor of Ed Ruscha’s famous “Twentysix Gasoline Stations” series, but the installation is also capable of animating with light and sound. To complete the project we find a photo book and a short film, made for the occasion by Thibaut Grevet, set between the landscape of the desert of Los Monegros and the artist’s studio in Barcelona.

Check out our gallery below and take a look at the best of Design Week here.

On the occasion of Esposiziometro, Eppol Milano hosts the works of Federico Ricotti

On the occasion of Esposiziometro, Eppol Milano hosts the works of Federico Ricotti

Giulia Guido · 10 months ago · Art

It’s called Esposiziometro and it’s the latest project by Alessio Pomioli e Collater.al that comes from the desire to give voice and visibility to painters, photographers, poets, sculptors, and street artists and put them in touch with a public aware and proactive. To welcome Esposiziometro and all the artists will be the Eppol Milano that, for three weeks from Sunday, April 14, will host the works of different artists.

To act as a forerunner, just on the day of the inauguration, from 16:30 to 21:30 there will be the works of Federico Ricotti. Born in 1992, Federico studied illustration and is dedicated to the creation of paintings characterized by a colorful and dry style, minimal and direct, which does not allow personal interpretations.

On the occasion of the launch, we had a chat with Federico who told us about his art.

Tell us a bit about yourself, your history, your background and what led you to dedicate yourself to the world of art.

Initially, I attended the art school for graphic design, but in this course, there were scientific subjects for which I was never brought, so I decided to change school to devote myself exclusively to artistic subjects. Afterward, I was an assistant photographer for a long time, but this experience immediately bored me and gave me the impetus to enroll at the IED, where I graduated in Illustration. I don’t think that what I do is exclusively related to what I’ve studied, it’s more a need that manifests itself spontaneously: I don’t use particular techniques, so I may well not have any academic training to do what I do. Through art I express my emotions and outside of what I feel, using a canvas and a brush.

Your works are characterized by bright colors and pop, what lies behind this choice?

I think that colors are often much more important than the drawing itself, in fact, the part that takes me the longest is precisely the choice of the right shade. With this, I don’t want to diminish everything else, but the color of the background is fundamental and I, personally, prefer pink.

In your artworks, there seems to be a naive and childish stylistic research. How did you get to this simplification?

I find it useless to make intricate or hyper-realistic drawings, if you want to convey something or make the viewer feel emotions, you need simplicity. You don’t need a thousand squiggles, but you really don’t need much: in the end, the way I paint reflects the way I see life.

On Sunday 14th April you will be the forerunner of the Esposiziometro, what will the spectators who will pass through Eppol Milano find?

Those who look at my works will find a part of me and of what I have experienced in my life.

It’s here! Watch the official trailer for The Lion King!

Giulia Guido · 10 months ago · Art

You have to take your place in the circle of life.

That of The Lion King is not just a remake, but it is the king of remakes, perhaps, since it was announced the most anticipated and no matter if we know the story better than our pockets, we already know that the film will make us cry as when we first saw the 1994 animated film.

For this reason, for us big fans, the trailer is a small masterpiece. It’s a two-minute video that manages, more than anything else, to make us become children again, to move us and to make us shed more than one tear. 

The opening notes of the soundtrack are enough to make us goosebumps, not to mention when we see the little Simba and Nala, the perfidious Scar and hyenas and then the two of them, yes, Timon and Pumba. They’re all there! 

The release in theaters is scheduled for July 19 meanwhile look at and watch the official trailer!

Watch now the trailer for Weathering With You

Claudia Fuggetti · 10 months ago · Art

After the success of Your Name on Netflix, Makoto Shinkai will present a preview of its new animated feature, Weathering With You.

Waiting for the release of the film scheduled for July 19, has been published the trailer which sees as soundtrack a cot of the band of J-rock Radwimps. The incredible animation accurately represents the landmarks of Tokyo, such as the Torre Mori of Roppongi Hills and the Rainbow Bridge that connects Tokyo to Odaiba.

The story of Weathering With You is about Hodaka Morishima, a sixteen-year-old high school student who runs away from her country house to go to Tokyo. The influence of the Japanese Shinto religion and the rituals and folklore of the indigenous religion based on nature throughout the film will serve to express to the world an interesting cultural point of the nation.

Lucy Bohr’s fresh and contemporary style

Lucy Bohr’s fresh and contemporary style

Claudia Fuggetti · 10 months ago · Art

From the illustrations by German artist Lucy Bohr can be immediately seen, at first glance, what the stylistic approach of her work is: minimal and contemporary.

The faces are never visible because what counts in Lucy’s works is the color, the silhouettes are highlighted by a type of skillful composition, able to surprise the public with their freshness. But the real secret of the artist lies in observing the world around her:

“I’m interested in how the urban environment shapes people’s experiences – the little things we do every day”.

Lucy gives us the feeling that her stories can almost be touched, superimposing layers of hues in contrast to each other to create a 3D effect. If you want to know more, you can visit the artist’s website here.
