Criticism of current events in Marco Melgrati’s illustrations

Giulia Guido · 9 months ago · Art

His name is Marco Melgrati, he is a young Italian illustrator and I am sure that at least once you have come across one of his illustrations, which certainly do not go unnoticed. 

Marco attended the art school, the academy of fine arts and, later, followed a course in digital illustration, and then began working as an illustrator working with several newspapers, both Italian and international.

Working for them has allowed him to create illustrations always closely related to current events and the world around us, so his drawings tell in a critical and satirical what happens today, right under our eyes.

His works are wonderful both from a technical point of view with a balanced and studied use of colors and from the point of view of content. The Marco’s are real illustrated metaphors, discover them in our gallery and on his Instagram profile.

Alex Chinneck and his zips arrive in Milan

Alex Chinneck and his zips arrive in Milan

Giulia Guido · 9 months ago · Art

During Design Week, Milan was filled with installations and design works, the historic buildings opened their doors to international designers and the city has completely changed its appearance. One of the most surprising installations is signed by Alex Chinneck, an English artist that we already know very well and that we talked about here, who brought to the city of Milan his famous giant hinges with which stripped the facades of the buildings.

So, walking down Via Tortona, at some point you will come across an old building with half of the facade bent over itself, revealing a blue light. Alex’s work does not end with the outside, because even inside the walls and floors open with huge hinges, revealing colorful lights. 

The installation was created in collaboration with Iqos and plays with the perception of the spectators, overcoming the limits of what is possible.

Nike continues to touch us with the new commercial with Tiger Woods

Nike continues to touch us with the new commercial with Tiger Woods

Giulia Guido · 9 months ago · Art

Tiger Woods hadn’t won a tournament since 2008, but yesterday, after eleven years, one divorce, scandals and sex rehabilitation, the American golfer returned to the first step of the podium, winning the Masters in Augsburg for the fifth time and reaching 15 Majors.

With a personal story and a sporting career of this caliber, Tiger could not help but become a face for Nike who, for a year now, has been using his campaigns to tell stories of life, sacrifice, commitment and rebirth.

Also this time the swoosh brand has made its mark and Woods becomes a forty-three-year-old man with the same dream as when he was only three, that of beating Jack Nicklaus’ eighteen majors and with yesterday’s victory this goal seems ever closer.

Big Little Lies is ready to return on June 9. Watch the trailer!

Big Little Lies is ready to return on June 9. Watch the trailer!

Giulia Guido · 9 months ago · Art

HBO or Netflix? Does it seem that this summer we will have to make a choice, Stranger Things and Money Heist of the streaming platform or Big Little Lies of the award-winning distribution company? 

Yes, HBO has released the first official trailer of the second season of Big Little Lies, a little gem that shines in the immense program schedule of the U.S. television station. 

Exactly two years ago we left the five protagonists known as the Monterey Five, Reese Witherspoon (Madeline MacKenzie), Nicole Kidman (Celeste Wright), Shailene Woodley (Jane Chapman), Laura Dern (Renata Klein), Zoe Kravitz (Bonnie Carlson) in a really messy situation and it seems that next June things will not improve. 

In the town of Monterey everything looks the same, everything looks perfect, but it’s just appearance and, given the events of the first season, it will be impossible to understand what will await us in the second. 

We have only one certainty, already announced a few months ago but confirmed by the trailer, the arrival of Meryl Streep as Celeste’s mother-in-law. 

If you haven’t seen her yet and don’t know how to kill the wait between episodes of Game of Thrones, Big Little Lies could be the solution to your problems!

Mirror Mirror, the installation signed by SOFTlab

Mirror Mirror, the installation signed by SOFTlab

Claudia Fuggetti · 9 months ago · Art

Commissioned by the Office of the Arts of Virginia, Mirror Mirror is a semi-circular reflecting structure, located in the city of Alexandria, composed of a prismatic series of mirrors. The installation was created by SOFTlab, a studio based in New York, which was inspired by the historic lighthouse of the ancient city of Alexandria.

It’s the Fresnel lens, an advanced technology that took hold during the nineteenth century: it used a series of prisms to create a source of direct light and light and was used as an aid during navigation. The LED fixtures give a strong character to the entire work, which not only reflects the Alexandria’s seafront , but is also able to produce light after sunset.

In the video below you can take a look at how the installation looks alive:
