Our need for solitude is the focus of Lossapardo’s work

Our need for solitude is the focus of Lossapardo’s work

Giulia Guido · 2 years ago · Art

Lossapardo is a young French artist. His art ranges from painting to music and animation. In his latest series, he manages to combine these three different forms to tell the story of loneliness.

The Parisian artist does not want to show loneliness in its negative meaning but wants to talk about the need to be with oneself, disconnected from everything and everyone. The representation is simple, an empty apartment in a cloudy night, TV off, phone abandoned somewhere. The representation is simple, an empty apartment in a gloomy night, TV off, phone abandoned somewhere. The dark colors and the play of light and shadow make the atmosphere even more intimate, more private.

But his work is not limited to paintings. To this series of works, he has combined two musical tracks, Home Alone (10.01 pm) and Sleep (3 am) that you can find on Spotify.

With his work Lossapardo try to give us the perfect excuse to enjoy a moment of loneliness looking at his paintings and listening to his music.

Astro Odv Cbs creates crazy geometric portals

Astro Odv Cbs creates crazy geometric portals

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 years ago · Art

Astro Odv Cbs is a street artist from Paris active since the early 2000s who has made his distinctive trait the combination of curves, calligraphy, and dynamic forms. His style has been influenced by artists such as Hartung, Vasarely, and Mucha and is based on optical illusion and geometric designs combined with three-dimensional effects. Huge walls and large facades of buildings become the perfect canvas on which to open real portals, which invite the viewer to enter another dimension, in this way Astro changes the entire perception of architecture structure, deceiving those who look at his works.

In 2006 the artist also devised a new technique called “CelloGraff” created with Kanos, which consists in a printing of a work on stretch film (cellophane), which makes him a real experimenter, always looking for new expressive solutions. Astro has participated in numerous international festivals and is part of CBS collective from Los Angeles.

Short video for Breakfast – The Chosen Generation, what do you choose, Wi-Fi or survive?

Short video for Breakfast – The Chosen Generation, what do you choose, Wi-Fi or survive?

Giulia Guido · 2 years ago · Art

Ariel Victor, a young Indonesian illustrator and animator, has a relatively negative opinion of the future.  In the animated short film The Chosen Generation, we follow the story of six young guys living in a post-apocalyptic world.

The city is no longer livable, it has been abandoned and has only one thing to offer, Wi-Fi. The protagonists, however, are too busy to stay always connected to the network and active on social networks to realize the desolation that surrounds them.

The great solution is to leave, leave the city and then the connection. To me the choice between wi-fi and survival doesn’t seem complicated, I’d know exactly what to do, but it’s not the same for the six teenagers.

After all, not everyone is willing to completely break away from the web. Perhaps the fear of realizing how much they are alone, how much time they have wasted is stronger than the desire to continue to live but live.

The Machine Stops by Casey McKee tell a story of loneliness

The Machine Stops by Casey McKee tell a story of loneliness

Giulia Guido · 2 years ago · Art

Casey McKee‘s art is a balance between painting and photography. After years and years of experimentation and trial and error, his technique has reached perfection, which we can see in his latest series of works The Machine Stops.

Casey was born in Phoenix, Arizona and then moved to Berlin, where he now lives and works. Over time he has managed to develop a unique creative process that combines painting and photography. Photography is the basis of his work. Thanks to the use of liquid photographic emulsions, Casey can print his photos on different materials. Starting with raw wood and handmade paper, he managed to print on canvas. From this came the brilliant idea of incorporating painting, which has gradually become more and more dominant.

The interaction between the two media is so perfect that it is no longer possible to distinguish where photography ends, and painting begins.

A good example is his latest series The Machine Stops. The protagonist of these works is a lonely astronaut who wanders through unknown lands. His state vaguely recalls Meursault, the protagonist of The Stranger by Camus. The title of the series is taken from the novel with the same name by E.M. Foster, in which people are no longer able to live on the surface of the Earth. Like the astronaut who, thanks to the best technology, manages to get to distant and unknown places, but then finds himself alone, we, thanks to the internet and social networks, follow and know everything, but remain forever isolated. To start again the only solution is to stop the machine in which we are perpetually immersed. This series is currently located at the Space K gallery in Seoul, where it will remain until October 26, 2018.

MacRo changes appearance thanks to Greg Jager’s Metamuseo artwork

MacRo changes appearance thanks to Greg Jager’s Metamuseo artwork

Giulia Guido · 2 years ago · Art

On the occasion of the new installation of MacRo, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome, curated by the Azienda Speciale Palaexpo and the direction of Giorgio de Finis, street artist Greg Jager has created Metamuseo.

The mural takes its inspiration from the idea of those responsible for the MacRo to renew and strengthen the relationship between the museum and citizens and covers an area of 100m² starting from the entrance. For this work, Jager confronted the place that hosts it, building a dialogue between his art and the architecture designed by Odile Decq.

The result is a graphic artwork, characterized by geometric figures and a rigorous chromatic scheme. Black and grey predominate in the lobby and the suspended paths, red is found in the auditorium and the space dedicated to the cafeteria and white is dedicated to the exhibition rooms.

Greg Jager thus manages to create an abstract dimension that the visitor experiences through the galleries and rooms of the museum.

From October 1st Metamuseo will include three permanent works by MacRo, which can be visited on the opening days of the museum.
