The marble sculptures of Jacopo Cardillo aka Jago

Buddy · 3 years ago · Art

Jacopo Cardillo aka Jago is a young Italian contemporary sculptor who thanks to an innovative approach and to surreal or pop culture-related subjects has re-emphasized his interest in a form of art tied in our imagination to classical tradition.

Jago seems to have the ability to mold marble and stone, to make them soft as plasticine and transform them into living materials, made of meat, muscle and blood. It reveals the hidden soul and at the same time reshapes them to contemporary languages.

His works are technical exercises and experiments on the perception of matter. He plays on mass and tactile sensation, on the physical properties of the material he uses, showing it soft or elastic, light or heavy, liquid and solid.

He digs it to show us what it hides, to discover its various organic layers.

In addition to work on matter, what is astonishing is the approach to an art form that plays with the concept of memory and its relationship with time, which allows to create works that are contemporary and eternal.

AZIMUT, the architecture of Venice fragmented with mirrors

AZIMUT, the architecture of Venice fragmented with mirrors

Emanuele D'Angelo · 2 days ago · Art

The French designer and artist Arnauld Lapierre has delivered his latest installation “AZIMUT” to the magical city of Venice. It consists of 16 batteries and motors recycled in steel and repainted in black, in which 16 mirrors have been mounted, which gently rotate in order to offer a fragmented view of the architecture of the city.

The Gothic of the city from another point of view, sitting on the shore of the slavers it will be possible to admire the architectural details that fragment and enlarge, offering a captivating new view.
Motorized and synchronized, the discs of the mirror slowly direct the viewer’s gaze towards the Doge’s Palace to the bell tower of San Marco, to the church of San Giorgio Maggiore which is facing the water.

The French architect is known for his work with mirrors, this project by Lapierre aims to offer the viewer a “dislocated immersion of reality and abstract contemplation“.
By abstracting and fragmenting the existing architecture, he recomposes it into a sort of network. A dynamic art installation that offers an alternative perspective of Venice.

AZIMUT offers a glimpse of the architectural elements and the sky above it, offering “the possibility of an escape both detailed and fractioned from our environment“.

Rob Wilson, the illustrator with the light lines

Rob Wilson, the illustrator with the light lines

Emanuele D'Angelo · 2 days ago · Art

Rob Wilson is an award-winning American illustrator and designer, capable of his thick, thin lines of capturing the attention of the beholder.
There has never been anything but art in his life, ever since he was a child while his other peers tried their hand at a thousand different sports, he drew constantly, non-stop.
All his dedication, passion and love have taken him where he is today, and he boasts numerous collaborations with the biggest American multinationals and newspapers.
Rob Wilson was born in Ralls, Texas, to creative parents who encouraged his natural drawing skills. “I used to draw windmills when I was 7,” he says. “It’s a little weird doing the same thing now.”

Although his images are still drawn by hand, his main means of communication is digital. His style is the flat, bold, raw representation of everyday scenes, he rarely uses two or three colors, but most of his sketches are black and white.
Many of his works come from personal experiences, from his dog, from drinking a cup of coffee, from having a dead plant, he has no precise influences, he simply gets inspired by what he has around him.

Now because of the current period we are living, he has started to draw a series of illustrations called “Corona days“, where day by day he tries to entertain his many fans.
Many illustrations of daily life trying to tell the life from home, between toasts on facetime and smart working he manages to tell the quarantine with great irony, trying to lighten these heavy days.

Art is Resistance – Massimo Gurnari

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 days ago · Art

Next Monday will start the second week of Art is Resistance, the charity project curated by Collater.al and supported by many contemporary artists and by you who, with your donations, are helping us to support Lombardy.

Today it was the turn of Gianluca Folì, the Roman illustrator with whom we had the pleasure to have a few chats while he was preparing the illustration that is now at auction on 32auctions, together with the works of all the other artists who have kept us company all in the past days.

Monday 30th will be the turn of the artist and tattoo artist Massimo Gurnari who will show us the making-of of one of his unpublished works, created ad hoc for this occasion.

MASSIMO GURNARI – on Collater.al Instagram profile and his profile from 3:00om of 30.03.2020

Massimo Gurnari was born in Milan in 1981, where he lives and works. He attended art institutes which he then abandoned for training in Street Art collectives and joining the historic VMD70’S crew in 1996.
After leaving the Academy of Fine Arts in Brera in 2002 he began to exhibit and in 2005 he began his professional career with his first solo exhibition at the historic Galleria OBRAZ in Milan, thus entering the panorama of the new Italian figure in the group called Italian Newbrow and led by the critic Ivan Quaroni.

During the following 10 years, he exhibited in private galleries and public exhibitions in Milan, Rome, New York, Madrid, Bejing.
In 2009 he began working as a tattoo artist at the same time as painting, and his research, in this case, becomes more meager in gesture, he prefers the use of black and draws inspiration from the engraving of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

On Monday 30th you will find on Collater.al and Massimo Gurnari’s channel the video of the making-of of the unpublished work that will be auctioned on 32actions where it will remain for one month.

Zosen, a mural for peace and freedom in Israel

Zosen, a mural for peace and freedom in Israel

Emanuele D'Angelo · 2 days ago · Art

Zosen, an Argentinean street artist, has decided to paint a wall for peace, for a future without borders, without prejudice, without paranoia, only with freedom and love.
The work was made in Jerusalem, in Israel, precisely in a public market in the industrial district of Talpiot.
Despite their colorful and playful aesthetics, Zosen’s works are known to speak out against social injustice in the world and beyond.
The multicolored, two-dimensional characters, though meaningless at first glance, criticize the corruption of today’s society.

Zosen | Collater.al

It was a great challenge for him and an enormous responsibility to paint his first mural in Jerusalem with all the ideas and prejudices existing in Israel.
Before he started talking to the locals, he discovered that the younger generation is tired of these problems.
For example, in Jerusalem they have their own stone to build their houses, by law they can only use this white/cream stone and it is not possible to paint on it, so he decided to paint only on concrete.
During the time he was there, the government was organizing the third election for prime minister in a year because nobody on the political scene seems to represent the interests of all the citizens living in Israel today.

Zosen | Collater.al 1

With a few lines on his social media, Zosen explained why he decided to take this very job.
“It’s time to think global, our home is the earth and we must share with others, not be selfish, remember history so as not to repeat the same mistakes. One world, one love!
