Real Life Series, IKEA turns your home into a TV series home

Real Life Series, IKEA turns your home into a TV series home

Giulia Guido · 8 months ago · Art

No matter how many of them we watch, we all have a favorite TV series, which we love everything about, from the story to the protagonists, from the ending to the set and sometimes it’s sad to find that those cozy houses where our favorite characters live don’t really exist. But what if I told you that now all of you can turn your living room into that of Rachel and Monica, the Simpsons or the terrifying one of Stranger Things?

The Spanish advertising agency Publicis has created for IKEA, Real Life Series, a brilliant advertising campaign in which the furniture and furnishings of the Swedish multinational have been used to recreate the sets of the TV series and the result is a disarming realism.

The icing on the cake of this campaign is the motto, For Real Families. Didn’t you already feel like buying something?

Ella & Pitr, when giants unexpectedly invade cities

Ella & Pitr, when giants unexpectedly invade cities

Claudia Fuggetti · 8 months ago · Art

The combination of comic actress Ella and street artist Pitr is really bizarre and takes its name from Ella & Pitr. In 2007, the couple from Saint-Etienne decided to start an artistic collaboration focused on urban art projects.

The distinctive feature of Ella & Pitr is its ability to create huge, colossal murals with a strong visual impact; these works are so large and extensive that they can only be seen in their entirety from above. But how is this possible?

The duo uses the roofs of the houses, which they transform into three-dimensional canvases. Drones, helicopter pilots and all those who are beyond the barrier of infrastructure, will be able to see clearly their creations. The irony of Ella is poured into the style of representation of the characters, who are not just any subjects, but real giants.

The aim of this artistic operation is to re-evaluate underestimated and unusual spaces such as roofs and other infrastructures.

Pointillism and Surrealism merges into Ilya Brezinski’s tattoos

Pointillism and Surrealism merges into Ilya Brezinski’s tattoos

Giulia Guido · 8 months ago · Art

The birth of Pointillism is roughly dated to 1886, when the two French painters Seurat and Signac developed the technique whereby colors were applied to the canvas with small dots close together, which the eye would then join together, optically creating colors. Instead, only 35 years later appeared first Surrealist artists, a current that invaded Europe in the 20s of the twentieth century. Now, although these two artistic movements are distant both for intent and for years, there is someone who has managed to unite them and not, it is not a painter or an illustrator, but a tattoo artist and his name is Ilya Brezinski

Ilya has Belarusian origins, but now lives and works in St. Petersburg where, every day, he creates works of art categorically using black ink. Over time his works have begun to be appreciated by his Instagram followers, reaching over 100,000 followers. 

What fascinates him about his works, and also what differentiates him from his colleagues is, as we said, the aesthetic choice to use only the color black, but also his subjects and his technique. 

As for the former, at a quick glance they seem to be trivial everyday objects or animals, but looking closer they all have something macabre and surreal as if it had come out of Alice in Wonderland

While, as far as technique is concerned, Ilya Brezinski creates his tattoos following that of Pointillism. This choice allows him to be much more precise and to create very light shades as if the tattoo were revealed by the skin itself.

Malaga – Paracosmic Houses, the solitary collages of Katharina Fitz

Malaga – Paracosmic Houses, the solitary collages of Katharina Fitz

Giulia Guido · 8 months ago · Art

Until a few years ago, the Spanish city of Malaga was inhabited all year round by a small fishing community. Then, with time, it became one of the first tourist destinations in the country, populating disproportionately in the summer period. Slowly, however, precisely because of this unexpected flow of people, it had to abandon its true nature, almost totally losing its fishing community. 

Fascinated by all this, Austrian artist Katharina Fitz gave life to her project “Malaga – Paracosmic Houses“. It is a collection of digital collages that unite the small houses of the villages of Pedregalejo and El Palo and the landscape with the sea stretching as far as the eye can see. 

What characterizes each photo is the solitude of the houses, which reflects the disappearance of the fishing community, once very numerous and alive and now completely lost.

LEGO celebrates 50 years of moon landing with NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander

LEGO celebrates 50 years of moon landing with NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander

Giulia Guido · 8 months ago · Art

It was July 20, 1969, when the Apollo 11 tailgate opened and Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the lunar surface. This year, exactly fifty years after that, LEGO decided to celebrate one of the historical events that influenced the contemporaneity with NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander, a set of just over 1000 pieces of the spacecraft.

With a size of 20x22x20, this new release will be perfect to display at home on shelves and furniture and will certainly make all your guests jealous. 

Thanks to the collaboration of the LEGO team with NAS technicians, this piece copies in all respects the original, from the landing panels and platforms to the staircase to the lunar surface, to two small astronauts at the flag.

If you weren’t convinced by the set of Stranger Things because you’re not a fan of the TV series or even of the Volkswagen Camper, maybe this would be for you. 

NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander will be available in stores and online from June 1, 2019
