Return to the Real, Doug Aitken’s exhibition

Return to the Real, Doug Aitken’s exhibition

Giulia Guido · 2 months ago · Art

Not long ago we talked about Doug Aitken on the occasion of the installation Don’t Forget to Breathe realized in California with the collaboration of RYOT. Today we return to talk about him because the artist, always following the style of the previous work is on display at the Victoria Miro Gallery in London with Return to the Real

Within the exhibition, open until December 20, 2019, the public will interface with two installations, All Doors Open and Inside Out, with which Doug Aitken tries to explore the relationships between men, but also between man and the world around him, in perpetual change. 

In the first one, a human figure in opaque resin returns, illuminated with blue LED lights – as we had already seen in Don’t Forget to Breathe – piled up on a table. The only elements that surround her are everyday objects, such as the inevitable smartphone, a bowl full of fruit or a shopping bag. 

The second installation consists of a female figure made of Zebrino marble that comes to life thanks to a series of mirrors, pink and blue lights. In both works, the sound aspect plays a fundamental role and manages to give life to the sculptures. 

Return to the Real by Doug Aitken is a portrait of contemporaneity, of a world in which the boundary between virtual and real is increasingly subtle and imperceptible.

Cities and architecture in Peter Greenwood’s illustrations

Cities and architecture in Peter Greenwood’s illustrations

Giulia Guido · 2 months ago · Art

A native of Brighton, Peter Greenwood is a freelance illustrator who often makes illustrations in collaboration with magazines and newspapers. To present his work we have chosen illustrations that have in common the element of architecture: we see existing or invented buildings that come to life through careful use of shapes and colors. 

No more lines, no decorative elements exist, all the work revolves around the main subject that, thanks to this minimalist stylistic choice, stands out on everything. 

Peter Greenwood’s technique comes from paper but finds its full expression in digital. 

Discover a selection of his illustrations in our gallery and find out more about his work on his website

Motion Tattoo by Rémy.B

Motion Tattoo by Rémy.B

Giulia Guido · 2 months ago · Art

Do you know the holographic effect that some book covers or postcards have? Those that have an image that changes according to how it is placed. Here, Rémy.B manages to recreate them on the skin of his customers.

Rémy.B’s professional career began with seven years of work as a graphic designer in Paris, then moved to Marseille where he came into contact with the world of tattoos and where today he has a studio, the Prisme Tattoo, opened with his colleague Blum. 

Over the years his clean and precise technique is combined with subjects of geometric and ornamental style. Lately, however, he has been delighted to create what he calls Motion Tattoo, or tattoos with which to create optical illusions. Just slide a special perforated card on the drawing to create a game that deceives the viewer.

Grounded, Onur’s mural that comes to life at night

Grounded, Onur’s mural that comes to life at night

Giulia Guido · 2 months ago · Art

A woman from behind looks at the landscape, her eyes at a lighthouse on the horizon. By day it is a window on an idyllic and relaxing scenery, by night it lights up in blue, revealing all its mysterious side. It’s called Grounder and it’s the mural that Onur made in Chicago. 

The artwork covers an area of 350 square meters, which is the entire outer wall of the 24th floor of the Hyatt Center in Chicago. 

Grounded, realized in collaboration with the curatorial team, Beauty & Brawn, producers of some of the most famous and emblematic murals of the city. The technique used by Onur is the one that distinguishes him from his other colleagues, that is, the one that involves the use of a roller and acrylic color. 

In a big city like Chicago, where nightlife is almost the same as daytime, thinking of a mural visible at any time of day opens up new artistic possibilities for the future.

The intimacy of the bedrooms in Fabio Sciarrillo’s illustrations

The intimacy of the bedrooms in Fabio Sciarrillo’s illustrations

Giulia Guido · 2 months ago · Art

Every place in the house has its role and the role of the bedrooms is to keep secrets, the most intimate and passionate moments, our true self, but also to protect ourselves from feelings that hurt too much. These are places that attract and intrigue everyone, including the illustrator Fabio Sciarrillo

On Instagram, where you can find him as @effenemea, Fabio publishes his works that take us inside the houses and while outside the world burns, or simply continues its daily course, between four walls cigarettes smoke, love is consumed and reality makes room for imagination and thoughts. 

Using a marked and safe line, the illustrator plays on the contrast, not only that of black and white but also that between outside and inside the house. 

In our gallery you can find a selection of his works, to discover more follow him on Instagram.
