The latest IKEA commercial says that the 2020 catalog will change our lives

The latest IKEA commercial says that the 2020 catalog will change our lives

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Art

Some have already found it, others are still looking. The book that changes life exists, just wait for it. But if patience is not your strong point, IKEA will be happy to help you by offering you one with an original and brilliant spot. 

The video entitled “The book that will change your life” features a slightly abandoned, dirty and unkempt man who runs into the new IKEA catalog for 2020. As soon as he opens it his life changes. The protagonist becomes a kind of Oprah, invited to speak during talk shows and television programs to dispense life advice. 

 It seems that for every problem, family quarrels, political crises, adolescent dramas, the answer is enclosed in the catalog. 

The commercial was made by the advertising agency Ogilvy for the United Arab Emirates.

All the must-see September Netflix films and tv series

All the must-see September Netflix films and tv series

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Art

Returning home from the holidays is never easy. Even once you start the routine again, renew your gym membership, have reviewed friends and have chosen some new course to attend we always have the feeling that we are missing something. Well, to heal this void Netflix runs to our aid with a roundup of news. Let’s discover the most interesting together: 

Elite 2: Netflix also returns to the desks in September, more precisely to Las Encinas, the school attended by rich children of rich families. Like every new school year, the students of Elite, a Spanish series that was a success following in the footsteps of Money Heist, will have to deal both with the events of the first season – the death of Marina, the arrest of Nano and all the relationships that began – and with news, such as new students. 
Elite 2 will be available from Friday 6 September.   

Disenchantment pt.2: Matt Groening, the father of Futurama and The Simpsons, will return with the second part of Disenchantment, the animated comedy series created for Netflix that will count 30 new episodes. The series, set in a past time and in a place called Beanlandia, will continue to follow the adventures of Princess Bean, Elfo and Luci.  
All the episodes of the second part of Disenchantment will be available from Friday, September 20

The Politician: After creating TV shows such as Glee, American Horror Story and American Crime Story, producer and director Ryan Murphy comes to Netflix for the first time with a new series. We are in Santa Barbara and, since ever, the young high school student Payton Hobart knows that he will become a Present of the United States. The goal isn’t the simplest, but Payton doesn’t seem to be taking any other avenues into consideration. So, the student elections turn into a real election campaign. The main character will be Ben Platt, who will always be joined by Gwyneth Paltrow as his mother. 
This crackling musical comedy will be available from Friday, September 27

In the Shadow of the Moon: Let’s leave the series for a moment to report an original film Netflix, In the Shadow of the Moon. The official plot released from the platform says: In this elegant sci-fi thriller, a Philadelphia police officer leads the hunt for an elusive serial killer whose crimes follow the phases of the moon. The film’s protagonist is Locke, who is searching for a serial killer who will soon turn into a real obsession that will affect him, his family and his entire life. 
In the Shadow of the Moon will be available from Friday, September 27

Alvaro Castro illustrates the emotions of the heart

Alvaro Castro illustrates the emotions of the heart

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Art

Originally from the south of Spain, Alvaro Castro started drawing as a hobby and self-taught, first approaching digital illustration with Photoshop and Illustrator and then discovering a thousand other possibilities and programs. Only later did he dedicate himself to in-depth studies in Graphic Advertising. 

His Instagram profile has become his portfolio, where you will find yourself immersed in a colorful world of feelings, bonds, and hearts destroyed by emotions. 

The heart is the main subject of his art, the organ that pulsing gives us life comes out of the chest to be cut in two, wounded, locked in an old shoebox and forgotten forever. 

On colored backgrounds, Alvaro Castro presents love in its truest form, sometimes idyllic and dreamy, sometimes painful and heartbreaking.

Passion and sex in the technicolor world by Helen Beard

Passion and sex in the technicolor world by Helen Beard

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Art

Born in 1971, Helen Beard was born in Birmingham and studied art at the Bournemouth and Poole college of Art and Design. Her creativity does not end with a single artistic form, but Helen has experimented with collage, embroidery, sculpture and finally with painting. 

After years and years of practice, she has developed a technique and a pictorial style recognizable among a thousand others. At the center of his art, we find the themes of passion and sex captured from a female point of view. The representation of these subjects takes shape through a personal interpretation of the bodies taken in moments of intimacy that break up. Every part, every limb, almost every muscle are seen as a single form with its own color. 

You will find yourself in front of images overflowing with colors, each element as well as being exasperated and exaggerated brings with it the strength of passion, which strikes the viewer without too many frills. 

In our gallery you can find a selection of Helen Beard’s works, to find out more visit her website and her Instagram profile

KAWS returns with its latest work, GONE

KAWS returns with its latest work, GONE

Collater.al Contributors · 3 months ago · Art

We had already had some previews of the new KAWS vinyl Companion. Now the confirmation. The official details of the waiting sculpture which this time is called “GONE“.

The collector’s statue takes its inspiration from the homonymous one in large dimensions. It represents the classic and inevitable character who carries in his arms his hairy mascot “BFF“, made in a single black color with white details for the boot.

The figure will make its debut at the exhibition entitled “Companionship in the age of loneliness” at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne on 20 September.
