Sage Barnes is a self-taught artist who lives and works in the United States. His research is focused on contrasting combinations, both technical and visual, in order to arouse curiosity and displacement in the viewer.
His style is strongly eclectic and combines various languages such as neorealism, street, and pop art, making him a unique artist of its kind. Sage’s main goal is to use contradictory elements to actively involve the viewer and engage him emotionally.

Adam Friedman is a three hundred and sixty-degree artist who makes tattoos from the unmistakable sile. The feeling is that the drawings are doubled and become a sort of projection to watch with 3D cinema glasses.
Over time his artistic research has focused on how the various cultures, throughout history, have tried to relate to the natural world. Survival, language, and technology have always shaped the interpretation of “natural” and “wild” places that the artist seeks to assimilate within his artistic practice that ranges from painting, installation to tattooing.
We have spoken many times about Alberonero, an artist who ranges and devotes himself to various forms of art, from sculpture to painting, up to graffiti, always to investigate the possibilities and potential of color and matter.
After years of experimentation, Alberonero has found in the shape of the square, also declined in that of the cube, and in the combination of colors, the perfect means to express themselves. And it seems that this method can be applied to any surface, from the canvas, to the walls, to any type of architecture that appears before the eyes of the artist.
The center of his art is precisely the dialogue that is created between color, architecture, and nature, it is as if Alberonero managed to create a link between something purely logical and mathematical and his artistic poetics. It goes without saying that the result always manages to amaze.
If you have never come across one of his works, you can admire it up close at the Galleria Varsi, in via di Grotta Pinta, 38, in Rome, which, from March 2 to April 4, 2019, will host the solo exhibition entitled Supernaturale. In the exhibition, you can admire a series of “exercises” that concretely show this dialogue that is created between building materials such as wood, concrete, glass, metal, and colors, from acrylic to watercolor.

Any means is useful to protest that universal rights are protected and since Trump has occupied the oval office chair, it seems that Instagram has become the ideal means to communicate this protest. There are those who do it for a good cause and some only for a few more likes on content that follow this wave of trends. Becca Rea-Holloway certainly falls into the first category.
A young pastry chef from Washington, D.C., she opened a new Instagram profile in 2018 called The Sweet Feminist. Each of her desserts becomes a means by which to communicate. How? Using the decorations as a vehicle to affirm strong sentences of opinion on the hottest themes of feminism … and beyond. Becca appropriates an ancient activity such as confectionery, which has always been linked to women and their role in the society of the past – and metaphorically also to their sensitivity – to communicate themes of depth in a direct way, with sentences that remind us of what it is really important to fight for.
The sweetness of sponge cake and sugars slams into the crudeness of its overlapping claims creating a contrast that exalts and reminds us that it is time to make a difference to make others understand that being a woman does not mean wearing aprons and pearls in the kitchen.
Here we are! like every month we have chose some orignial Netflix contents that will be available during the month of March.
Triple Frontier: Given the cast formed almost exclusively by Star, the movie is perfect for adrenaline but not only lovers. A handful of special forces soldiers have the brilliant idea of robbing a local cartel drug lord. The five soldiers will, therefore, be subjected to the wrath of one of the most powerful criminals in South America. The film will be directed by J.C. Chandor, known to the general public for Margin Call or A Most Violent Year, with Mark Boal, flanked by the director himself taking care of the screenplay. As just anticipated, Triple Frontier has a cast of exception, that has been repeatedly amended despite the long years of preproduction, the final quintet will be formed by Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnman, Pedro Pascal, Oscar Isaac, and Garrett Hedlund. The film will be available on the platform from Wednesday, March 13th.
Love, Death and Robots: Perhaps, I repeat perhaps we are before one of the products among the most interesting of the year. Love, Death and Robots is an anthology series, created in mixed media, produced by no less than David Fincher. But why is this small Netflix product so interesting? Well, it is very clear from the trailer. From March 15, we will have 18 small pills animated with different styles and workings dealing with love, death, and robots wrapped in a sinister fog and horror sometimes leading to comedy. This thematic variety places the show, certainly in the dimension of animation for adults, of which Netflix has for years been a proud standard-bearer.
Osmosis: After Black Mirror’s global success release we have come to a point where humanity is increasingly hungry for movies or serial products dealing with possible and real technologicaldystopias. Maybe because this dystopia is not so dystopian, but it seems that contemporary men cannot do without it. Examples are works such as Her by Spike Jonze, the aforementioned Black Mirror or the more recent Maniac. This month the Netflix Osmosis catalog will be launched, a French series about a soul mate seeking sci-fi algorithm powered app. No need to say not all will flow smoothly. From the first scenes, the series appears, in fact, a thriller more than a love story. The first season of Osmosis will be released on Friday, March 29th.
Highwayman: is the never told true story of the rangers who killed the 1930s legendary couple, Bonny and Clyde. The movie is notable not only for its cast, the two agents are in fact played by Woody Harrelson (True Detective, Hunger Games, Natural Born Killers and more) and by Kevin Costner, it is also written and directed by an important name in American cinema: John Lee Hancock (known for films like The Founder, Saving Mr. Banks and Alamo, the latest heroes). Although dealing with a trite and backward story the movie manages to be an interesting novelty because of its radical change of perspective. This time the criminals are so fascinating and folkloristic that they are at the center of the directorial investigation. It will be released on the small screen on March 29th and we can not wait.
After life: Series conceived, written and interpreted by none other than the comedy genius Ricky Gervais, a character for his staged shows, for the creation of series like The Office and for his multiple appearances as a Golden Globe presenter. This time, however, his TV return will be slightly different from the previous ones. After Life is not a demented television series nor a frivolous time filling series. With his infamous cynical humor Gervais, will make us reflect on life and especially on death. The story indeed speaks of a journalist, played by the same director, who tries to react to life after the painful loss of his wife. After Life deals with life, love and pain but, in a way that only one of the biggest existing comedians can speak. The series will be available on the platform on Friday, March 8th.
