KaloolaJay Studio‘s illustrations capture for their simplicity and, at the same time, for their richness of colours and shapes. 

Behind the name of KaloolaJay Studio hides Kate, an English artist who has transformed her background in architecture into the starting point of her art. Today, in fact, she illustrates and creates beautiful posters and postcards representing buildings of all kinds. 

From the lifeguards’ houses typical of American beaches to the white Greek houses, from historic buildings to modern skyscrapers, Kate’s eye rests on the shapes of the balconies, the lines of the stairs, the colours of the bricks and plasters and returns them to us in illustrations made in flat design technique. 

Each element is therefore reduced to a minimum, depth and perspective are sacrificed to leave room for colours and textures. With its illustrations, KaloolaJay Studio opens the doors of a world where it is always summer, where the warm sun beats on the facades of buildings and where we can smell the scent of freedom and carefreeness. 

To discover all of the illustrations you went on KaloolaJay Studio’s Instagram profile and to buy one of the works you went on its Etsy profile

World in progress, Saype’s work for the United Nations

World in progress, Saype’s work for the United Nations

Giulia Guido · 3 days ago · Art

It was June 26, 1945 when the representatives of 50 countries gathered in San Francisco to sign the United Nations Charter. Today, the UN has 193 member states that work together to maintain world peace and security, to develop friendly relations between nations and to foster international cooperation. 

This year, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the birth of the United Nations, Saype was commissioned to carry out a huge land art project in front of the entrance to the United Nations Office in Geneva. 

On an area of 6,000 square meters, the French artist has drawn with biodegradable paint a boy and a girl intent on drawing what seems to be a better world, where everyone holds hands. 

Entitled “World in progress“, Saype’s work is meant to be a symbol of hope for a better future, but also to remind the world that although the future belongs to children, their quality of life depends on us and it is our responsibility to do whatever we can to make it better. 

World in progress” evokes the collective construction of our future.

Kinahan’s Whiskey launches KASC, a creative project for the community

Kinahan’s Whiskey launches KASC, a creative project for the community

Giulia Pacciardi · 3 days ago · Art

KASC is the new creative space created by Kinahan’s Whiskey to promote the values of cohesion and inclusiveness, the leitmotif of our era, and the mirror of our needs, where Whiskey meets art with the aim of inspiring evolution of collective thought and thus fostering social progress.

The mission of this new charity project is to create an innovative dimension where the art object is also invested with a social responsibility that allows it to be a driving force for change.

KASC is much more than a collector’s item, it is an intersection and overlapping of different cultural influences that create a new intermediate identity capable of revealing a hitherto hidden value. It is a contemporary totem, a tangible emotion that wants to provoke confrontation and inspire changesays Zak Oganian, Managing Director of Kinahan’s Whiskey. 

For the first release KASC has collaborated with the contemporary artist MARCANTONIO that counts among its collaborations realities such as Seletti, Giorgio Armani and the Rossana Orlandi art gallery.
For this occasion the Italian artist has created a work entitled “I’M OK”, whose characteristic is a portrait of the artist himself set inside a bottle of Kinahan’s Whiskey. 

The profits from the work, which will be produced in a limited edition of only 500 pieces, will be donated to Food for Soul, the non-profit association of Massimo Bottura and Lara Gilmore, which encourages a healthy and fair food system.

The online pre-order of the artwork is already available and you can find it here.

A wall of stained glass between Parisian boulevards

A wall of stained glass between Parisian boulevards

Giulia Guido · 2 days ago · Art, Design

Imagine walking through the Parisian streets of the Rive Gauche when you take Boulevard Raspail and instead of walking past the walls of the buildings you find yourself looking at the reflection of the streets on a very long wall of stained glass. This is the latest work by architect Aldric Beckmann for the Embellir Paris initiative. 

Embellir Paris is a project aimed at all artists, collectives, students, designers, architects and art schools in Paris that aims to give new life to specific points of the city through the creation of installations and works. After a first selection in 2018, the 20 selected artists have started to design and realize their works. 

Aldric Beckmann’s work, entitled Tangram sur Raspail, was officially inaugurated at the beginning of the year, but only now (after the lockdown and with the arrival of the summer season) does it show its full potential. The work consists of a wall, also known as a landscape fresco, made by assembling enamelled glass panels, each of a different colour. 

The production of the panels was commissioned to the French company Sto, specialized in glass processing, while the choice of colors was the result of a careful study of the surrounding landscape. Every shade present in Aldric Beckmann’s work is in fact present in the street and in the neighborhood, in this way the installation becomes a real reinterpretation of the environment. 

In addition to bringing a touch of color to the Boulevard Raspail, Tangram sur Raspail reflects everything around it, from buildings to cars on the street, offering citizens and tourists a new vision of Paris. 

Go to the Embellir Paris website to discover all the other projects and Aldric Beckmann’s website to learn about the architect’s past work.
