Jillian Evelyn’s crumpled women

Jillian Evelyn’s crumpled women

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

Jillian Evelyn is an artist based in Los Angeles whose paintings are a mix of sensations, feelings and stories of the past.

Everything in her paintings belongs to her memories and experiences, particularly a bad break-up and the way she uses colors.
Her most recurrent protagonists are the female bodies naked, tangled, bent, pushed down by an invisible force that represents the pressures of society and the oppressive expectations that control us.
In her paintings there is a strong sensation of claustrophobia that forces the bodies not to use space, to remain injured in a small corner, a sensation that is slightly mitigated only by the strong and bright tones that create the contrast.

Jillian’s work often fights against censorship which, more interested in nude than in the meaning, often blocks the contents of her page considered Not Safe For Work.

Loro is the new film directed by Paolo Sorrentino

Loro is the new film directed by Paolo Sorrentino

Andrea Jean Varraud · 2 years ago · Art

Loro’s teaser trailer has recently come out. I’m talking about the last film directed by Paolo Sorrentino, one of the most famous Italian directors.

This new movie will narrate the life of another famous Italian character: Silvio Berlusconi. It is not a very original idea, in fact in the past years, Berlusconi has been the subject of lots of movie and TV shows (Il Caimano by Nanni Moretti for example).We don’t know much about this new Sorrentino movie, but what we can tell you is that Toni Servillo will perform as the ex Italian premier, Bigazzi will be at the camera and Contarello will do the screenplay.

With luck, the Film will be presented at Cannes Festival in May. Here you can find the trailer.

Short video for Breakfast – The first trailer of La nostra storia is out

Short video for Breakfast – The first trailer of La nostra storia is out

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

“Leave our country seemed the only way to survive”, tells the narrating voice of La nostra storia, an animated short film written and directed by Lorenzo Latrofa on the delicate theme of migration.

A story like many others.

“Emigration is a common territory that has involved many people all over the world.
The stories of today’s emigrants are the stories of our past.”

La nostra storia, of which design and artistic direction are by Massimiliano di Lauro, and the animation by Giovanni Braggio, retraces the stories of two different journeys.

Two identical stories, set in two different periods, where the protagonists are exactly the same.

Rainbow Roads, Daniel Mercadante and his trails of rainbow

Rainbow Roads, Daniel Mercadante and his trails of rainbow

Giulia Ficicchia · 2 years ago · Art

Daniel and Katina are The Mercadantes, a creative and really special couple of which we tell their wonders here and here.

Recently the male part of the duo has decided to realize a little and on-going photographic project, Rainbow Roads: in Daniel’s photographs, luminous trails made of rainbow colors become roads impossible to not notice in the middle of natural places merged in the obscurity of night.

Hard to say where they can take us, easier to admit that there’s a great temptation to discover it.

Free Zehra, Banksy’s new mural against Turkish censorship

Free Zehra, Banksy’s new mural against Turkish censorship

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

After expressing his opinion on topics such as Brexit or the Israeli-Palestinian question, Banksy returns to New York with Free Zehra, at the corner between Houston Street and Bowery, a street famous for having already been a destination for artists such as JR and Keith Haring.

The new work, born from the collaboration with street artist Borf, is 21 meters long and faces, once again, a very hot topic, Turkish censorship.

The two artists, in fact, dedicate the murals to the artist and journalist Zehra Dogan, in prison from March 2016, where she will have to stay for two years, for having portrayed the Turkish flag on the ruins of the destroyed city of Nusaybin.

Un post condiviso da zehra doğan (@jinhazehradogan) in data:

A mural of immediate comprehension that represents the days that the artist has already spent in prison and that, despite imprisoned behind bars, holds her pencil in hand.

“I really feel for her. I’ve painted things much more worthy of a custodial sentence,”
said Banksy to New York Times.
