World Underwater, the high tide seen by Hayden Williams

World Underwater, the high tide seen by Hayden Williams

Anna Cardaci · 1 week ago · Art

For some time now, thanks to all the eco-friendly movements promoted by Greta Thunberg, a process of awareness raising about our planet has begun. Many people have taken action by sending alarm bells, including Hayden Williams, who wanted to show how rising sea levels can affect our daily lives. The project is called World Underwater and is a digital representation of high tides. What inspired Hayden Williams was a trip to Venice where he came to discover that the lagoon city is often attached and he was surprised by the ability to cope with this problem. From this he imagined the rest of the world in this kind of condition.

His 3D renderings show everyday scenes such as New York subway stations, restaurants and cinemas, all partially flooded. These images of a dystopian future are also given a dream quality, with a beautiful blue sky and a unique shade of pink, in contrast to the gravity of the situation. A colour that is very present in his work is precisely the pink that the artist considers to be personally very exciting and because, according to him, it has a positive effect on the brain. After focusing more on photography over the last five years, Hayden, who has a distant background in areas such as biochemistry and computer science, has shifted his focus to 3D graphics. World Underwater was born out of frustration at the lack of recognition of environmental problems, which is very evident in the United States under the leadership of a president who is known to be skeptical about the issue of climate change.

Nike’s Chinese New Year campaign

Nike’s Chinese New Year campaign

Giulia Pacciardi · 1 week ago · Art

The new campaign designed by Nike to celebrate the imminent arrival of Chinese New Year is a hymn to the family, its values and traditions.

Great protagonist, in addition to the different models of sneakers that we see on the screen, is the red envelope, or Hóngbāo, a red packet containing money that in China is donated on special occasions, including New Year’s Eve.

The packet, which has always been a symbol of this holiday, is a reason for “chases” between an aunt and a niece, who, out of kindness, begins not to accept it from a young age.
The campaign, in fact, tells the long runs of the little girl, who over time becomes a young adult and then a mother, to escape from her aunt who finds a thousand different ways to make her receive her gift, including technology.
Each race is characterized by a different sneaker, including the one launched a few days ago by the brand just for the occasion.

Nike and Jordan Brand have in fact recently launched a themed collection, which includes both sneakers and apparel, using both the rat, which according to the Chinese calendar is the zodiac sign of the year and symbols inherent to other and different Chinese traditions.

The Royal Family breaks down and brands reply

The Royal Family breaks down and brands reply

Giulia Guido · 6 days ago · Art

Despite last week’s critical situation, which saw, on the one hand, the imminent conflict between the United States and Iran and on the other the devastating fires in Australia, the official farewell of the Dukes of Sussex, better known as Harry and Meghan, to the Royal Family has certainly not gone unnoticed.

Obviously, news of such a sensation could not fail to attract brands from all over the world to create ad hoc advertising campaigns.
We selected the most hilarious ones.

The first place went to Ceres, who has undoubtedly gone to the trouble of her direct competitor, Corona.

Harry e Meghan, we can be your family.

Corona’s response, however, was not long in coming.

Ceres Harry and Meghan would certainly not have given up on this Crown.

Couldn’t miss Burger King, which in terms of instant marketing has only to teach.

IKEA and Fiat both played on the move that Harry and Meghan will have to devote themselves to.

Finally, Sky Atlantic couldn’t miss this opportunity to talk about TV series, bringing up The Crown and Game of Throne.

“BREAKING NEWS: Unveiled the real reason Harry and Meghan gave up The Crown: They wanted Game of Throne”

Reskate Studio, the dialogue between people and art

Reskate Studio, the dialogue between people and art

Anna Cardaci · 6 days ago · Art

The Spanish art collective Reskate Studio, based in Barcelona, has recently completed three large-scale public art projects entitled: “Connectivity” in China, “Domestication” in Austria and finally “The Peace of Belmonte” in Portugal. The murals are a continuation of the studio’s “Harreman” series and aim to illuminate the dark corners of cities and stimulate conversation between the public and the artwork on local issues. Through the use of lights, the viewer becomes an active participant by interacting with the work and creating his own response to these actions.

At night, each of the murals illuminates a hidden illustration, painted with a photo-luminescent medium, which provides a new perspective on the neighborhood. With the help of the community art centers, Reskate Studio was able to get an idea of the different cultures and create appropriate messages behind the artwork.

Connectivity“, the first mural, is located in a public parking lot in Shenzhen, China, and highlights the exponential growth of the community that was once a small fishing village of about 30,000 residents. Within a decade, the Chinese city has become the hub of the mobile phone industry and home to 12 million residents. Reskate Studio questions the role of social networking – a tool that connects civilians but also puts individual privacy at risk. The hidden koi carp invites locals to look back and reflect on when social networks were not so widespread.

Painted on the Wien Museum in Vienna, Austria, “Domestication” represents an indigenous dog breed, the Bracke Tiroler. Known for its natural predatory instinct to hunt wild foxes, the mastiff has always been exploited by humans throughout history. At night, the dog’s silhouette reveals two foxes fighting each other.

Reskate Studio’s latest mural, “The Peace of Belmonte“, is dedicated to Jews living in the town of Belmonte, Portugal and celebrates the integrity of the community during the Portuguese Inquisition. For five centuries, the Jewish community had to live with their habits of clandestinity. At night, the illustration of the tree root turns into a handshake to symbolize the respect and tolerance that the inhabitants of the town have shown the Jewish community.

The dynamic and colorful works by Caroline Dowsett

The dynamic and colorful works by Caroline Dowsett

Giulia Guido · 5 days ago · Art

Geometric shapes, full-color backgrounds, thick black lines overlap in the works of Caroline Dowsett, an artist born in Manchester. 

Caroline’s passion for drawing began at a young age and then, over the years and with the study and above all with hours and hours of experimentation and practice, it became her work. Today the English artist creates her works in her studio, where she uses acrylic, black ink and flat, wide edged brushes to give vent to all her creativity, creating works in which the playful aspect is combined with the aesthetic one.
