@veryrealfantasy’s collages, ironic and captivating

@veryrealfantasy’s collages, ironic and captivating

Claudia Fuggetti · 7 months ago · Art

The collages that populate the Instagram profile of @veryrealfantasy look like classic middle-class women of the ’50s, but they could very well have as background a song by The Cramps or La Femme.

The page, followed by more than one hundred thousand followers, is of great visual impact both in terms of the graphics and the written content that accompany them. The great pungent irony and irreverence that distinguish the creations, are elements that help to establish an empathy with the public, especially the female one, which is identified in the various judgments.

So we find: a practical pocket guide on how to sabotage your happiness by comparing yourself to others, pills of feminism and the dilemmas that characterize our generation, social-dependent and paranoid.

The success of @veryrealfantasy lies not only in the quality of the images, but above all in the honesty of the words that accompany them… and to think that the women of the 50s used only the landline phone!

Take a look at the page here.

Mr. Flower Fantastic recreates sneakers with flowers

Mr. Flower Fantastic recreates sneakers with flowers

Giulia Pacciardi · 7 months ago · Art

Born and raised in Queens, New York, Mr. Flower Fantastic is one of those artists who became famous for giving sneakers a new look.
Completely made with flowers, his sculptures reproduce some of the most desired models of recent years with petals of tulips, roses, lilies, carnations, orchids and others flowers from Turkey, the Caribbean, Holland, North America, and South America.

The artist, who has preferred to remain anonymous to focus attention on his work, has chosen this medium, although he is allergic to it and is obliged to use a mask and gloves while working, for the meaning of gift and peace that they have had in history.

From time to time, Mr. Flower Fantastic leaves his works around the streets of New York sowing clues on his Instagram profile and unleashing his admirers in their search.

Unfortunately, for obvious reasons, his works can not be purchased but if you want to have some of his pieces you can always have their reproductions that you find here.

Megaliths in the Bath House Ruins, the teamLab installation

Megaliths in the Bath House Ruins, the teamLab installation

Giulia Guido · 7 months ago · Art

On the Japanese island of Kyushu, inside Mifuneyama Rakuen Park, in conjunction with their exhibition “A Forest where Gods Live, Ruins and Heritage“, teamLab creatives transformed an abandoned bathroom into an unprecedented immersive installation. The work entitled Megaliths in the Bath House Ruins features huge megalith-like blocks coming out of the floor and occupying most of the room’s space. 

This abandoned place is a sort of time machine, a space in which nothing has changed for years, and it is with time the protagonist of the installation. 

Whole life cycles of flowers are projected on each megalith, from when they bloom to when they lose their petals and die, but thanks to a computer program the images are neither pre-recorded nor in loops, but they change according to the quantity and movements of the spectators, so as to offer a unique and unrepeatable experience. For example, if a person moves between the megaliths the flowering process will be slower, while if a spectator stops in front of one of them the process will be much faster. 

But flowers are not the only subject, another type of projection involves an infinite cascade of drops of water that, again, according to the movements of people slows down or accelerates its flow. 

“Every moment is unique and can never be seen again.”

What makes the installation Megaliths in the Bath House Ruins even more evocative is the soundtrack that can be heard in the background, signed by Hideaki Takahashi. 

Megaliths in the Bath House Ruins will be open to the public until November 4

Art on geometric grids by Thomas Lateur

Art on geometric grids by Thomas Lateur

Collater.al Contributors · 7 months ago · Art

Thomas Lateur is a young French artist who has chosen to put together all his passions and skills to produce something new and surprising that is also his job.

Thanks to the artistic practice of graffiti he falls in love with geometric shapes and lettering, passions that he also develops studying typography and working as a graphic designer.

He loves painting and many of his creations are influenced by an architectural aesthetic that turns into geometric abstractions that let the viewer free to find his own point of view in the space.

Thomas also cultivates a visceral passion for the skateboard’s culture and music which are the real mantra for his work. In the last period, his art finds its own expression in murals, an opportunity to test compositions and overlapping shapes, in which lightness and fun prevail over a rigid geometric grid.

Discover below a selection of his works, and visit his website to find out more.
