Mr Preston and his tattoos for people in existential crisis

Mr Preston and his tattoos for people in existential crisis

Giulia Guido · 12 months ago · Art

After talking about tattoo artists who play and experiment with thousands of different colors and shades, we return to talk about tattoos made using only black ink. Mr Preston, the stage name of Neil Preston, is a tattoo artist who lives and works in Manchester and creates tattoos with a unique style, in which he manages to blend art, music, a pinch of black humor and a lot of philosophy. 

Yes, in fact, the artist himself claims to create Tattoos for people in existential crisis. 

We see different representations of death, from tarot cards to skulls, but also disturbing situations of loneliness, to get to stylized reproductions of some of the masterpieces of art history. But if the subjects change, the style never does so, simple, minimal and linear, which manages to make each Mr Preston’s tattoo a work of art.

Robert Montgomery, short poems made of neon

Robert Montgomery, short poems made of neon

Claudia Fuggetti · 12 months ago · Art

Robert Montgomery is one of those artists who use the power of speech to produce conceptual art, writing short poems on huge neon signboards. Through his artistic-conceptual practice, the artist comes to develop his work on various levels: that of the message, that of language and that of harmony with the surrounding context.

Through the artist’s installations and work-landscape relationship, the viewer feels himself to be both emotional and sensorial participating, becoming part of a “total” artistic project.

We also remember that Robert was selected for the 2012 Biennale of Kochi-Muziris and exhibited his works all over the world. Follow him on Instagram and on his website here.

Jenny Liz Rome and her fashion illustrations

Jenny Liz Rome and her fashion illustrations

Claudia Fuggetti · 12 months ago · Art

Jenny Liz Rome is a Canadian illustrator known for her elegant and sophisticated works whose main theme is fashion. The artist has developed her unique style starting from fantasy-inspired designs and, after graduating in OCAD U in 2009, she began to direct her research in fashion.

Jenny mainly explores themes such as femininity and nature, with the task of highlighting, even more, the sensuality that distinguishes her female subjects, sometimes fragile, sometimes confident of their charm. From watercolor to mixed media, the artist uses the most disparate techniques, depending on the final effect she wants to achieve to highlight fabrics, patterns, and colors that make up the clothes of the protagonists.

Take a look at Jenny’s website, in the meantime don’t miss our gallery below.

Lines (57° 59′ N, 7° 16’W), the global warming effects

Lines (57° 59′ N, 7° 16’W), the global warming effects

Claudia Fuggetti · 12 months ago · Art

Lines (57° 59′ N, 7° 16’W) is the installation by Finnish artists Pekka Niittyvirta and Timo Aho which through luminous lines, shows the global warming effects.

Both focused on a kind of research that put the man in relationship to political-social and environmental changes, these two artists have placed three synchronized installations of light in the Hebrides, off the west coast of Scotland: one day, the areas highlighted by the lines will be completely submerged by water as a result of the rise of the oceans.

Archipelagos like this are particularly vulnerable, beautiful to look at, but destined to disappear. The work is intended to remind us that every planet around us is in danger and that humanity does not have much time to remedy the environmental problem.

Hülya Özdemir portrays women in her watercolors

Hülya Özdemir portrays women in her watercolors

Claudia Fuggetti · 12 months ago · Art

Hülya Özdemir is a Turkish artist born in Istanbul who creates colorful watercolors with an exotic flavor. Her subjects are beautiful women all very different from each other, authentic and unique, that stands out against the backdrop of abstract backgrounds.

The pivotal point of Hülya’s artistic research is to highlight the various struggles that women undertake every day towards the society that today, like yesterday, are still dominated by men. As she herself states:

“[They] are imprisoned in a role based on the maintenance of all its norms: tradition, morality and family”.

Through artist’s paintings, women finally find their place, gain confidence, becoming protagonists of her imaginary worlds effervescent.
