The bodies intertwine in the murals by Giacomo Bufarini aka RUN

The bodies intertwine in the murals by Giacomo Bufarini aka RUN

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Art

Born in 1979, Giacomo Bufarini was born in Ancona where he graduated from the art institute, discovering first writing and then the whole world of street art. It was at this point, when he began to create his works on old wagons and train carriages, that he became RUN

The first great work he signed was a wall in an old building in Italy built-in 2003, then a few years later he decided to move to London, where his art and style, in contact with different stimuli, changes and transforms. 

What does not change is the intent, for RUN street art is always a way to communicate, to get to the heart of people. 

Today, in the world of street art, Giacomo Bufarini is one of the greatest exponents and his style stands out and differs from everything that came before. We can see recurring elements: the use of a large number of colors in the same wall, the shapes of the subjects are soft and formed by sinuous lines, the subjects are mostly human figures that fit together so well and so many times to form patterns that cover entire facades. 

Starting from Florence and Bologna, RUN’s art has exceeded limits and boundaries, you can find his works in England, but also in Poland, China, Gambia or Senegal. 

Discover a selection of his works in our gallery.

VIGIL, Jenny Holzer’s installation

VIGIL, Jenny Holzer’s installation

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Art

Jenny Holzer is an American neo-conceptual artist who uses any means at her disposal, a t-shirt, a plaque or the entire facade of a building to convey her messages and her ideals. The leitmotif of her art is words, phrases that become huge light installations so that as many people as possible can see them.

For her latest work, entitled VIGIL, Jenny Holzer has collected poems, short texts, thoughts, testimonies all related to the theme of shootings in the United States and the sale of firearms.

The nights from 10 to 12 October, on the facades of the buildings of the Rockefeller Center in New York were projected all the phrases collected, creating an incredible light show.

My right hand exploded in front of my eyes“, “I have spent over twelve years living with fear, panic, anxiety“, “I consider myself lucky compared with the people who have lost their loved ones in gun violence“, “My son, Benjamin, became the 17thhomicide victim of 2012 in Trenton, New Jersey” are just some of the words that caught the attention of the public gathered in the street for the occasion.

VIGIL wants to be a starting point, a starting point, but also a starting point for reflection on one of the great problems that plagues the United States and against which thousands of people demonstrate every day and because of which thousands of people fight against the fear of greeting their children before going to school, go to see a movie at the movies or just walk in the street.

Archiwords: a new project by Federico Babina

Claudia Fuggetti · 4 months ago · Art

The Italian architect and illustrator Federico Babina, of whom we had the pleasure to speak on the occasion of the project Archidirector, has returned with a new interesting work that in his new series Archiwords.

The artist fuses the world of typography and illustration in a creative and original way, presenting each letter as an independent structure.

Through a minimal style, characterized by clean lines and the use of the colors of black and red, Federico Babina manages to capture the attention of the public on the true essence of the images, much more than just words.

Take a look at our gallery below.

Halo, Kimchi and Chips’ sunflower mirrors installation

Halo, Kimchi and Chips’ sunflower mirrors installation

Claudia Fuggetti · 4 months ago · Art

Halo is the name of the installation by the art studio Kimchi and Chips in Seoul, composed of 99 robotic mirrors that move continuously during the day, following the sun just like the sunflowers.
The mirrors are positioned on a 15-meter long track and two five-meter high towers and project sunlight into a cloud of water mist, creating a golden circle.

The installation is co-signed by the Arts Council England and the Arts Council Korea and explores the relationship between nature and technology in an urban space.

“Halo offers a theater of meditation within the city. The wind makes the halo of light appear and disappear without control, reflecting the way thoughts act in the mind”.

The 99 mirrors and the Sun make up the number 100. Even if:

“Ninety-nine is a number full of three-dimensional symmetries, but it also has a tension due to its incompleteness.

Halo shows how solar energy can be used sustainably in urban areas, where air pollution is a major problem.

Marinel Sheu captures sunsets in his illustrations

Marinel Sheu captures sunsets in his illustrations

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Art

Who watching a sunset would not want to stop it, freeze it forever, stop time and postpone the end of the day countless times. Seen from the street, on the beach, in the mountains, from the office window or from the train window, the sun setting and the sky constantly changing color remains one of those shows that never get bored, to which you can not get used. For this reason, Marinel Sheu, a young artist of Albanian origin who lives and works in Dublin, has made it the absolute protagonist of his work. 

Marinel started drawing as a self-taught artist when he was given his first computer for 14 years. After a long time, constancy and millions and millions of tests, today Marinel Sheu has found his own technique: first he makes sketches, then he refines and refines everything with Photoshop and Illustrator, but above all he has found his own style, characterized by the use of warm colors and realistic representations of spaces and moments of life. Bedrooms, bathrooms, subway stations, every scenario represented by the artist is part of the everyday life of many, but in his illustrations are always illuminated by the warm and enveloping lights of the setting sun. 

In our gallery you will find a selection of the works of Marinel Sheu, to find out more follow him on Instagram
