Short video for Breakfast – Soar, the incredible power of imagination

Short video for Breakfast – Soar, the incredible power of imagination

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Art

But do you remember the boundless imagination you had when you were children? The one that could transform a small plastic character into our hero, a stuffed animal or a Barbie into our best friend, a sheet of paper in an airplane directed towards unknown destinations? Sometimes we forget how beautiful, relaxing and sometimes rewarding it is to imagine what we want. 

The young artist and director Alyce Tzue shared her most original fantasies and dreams making it an animated short film, Soar, and the public and critics have, perhaps, recognized in her desire to escape that the short film has won international awards. 

Mara is a teenager with a passion for aircraft construction, but discouraged by the first failures she thinks to give up, until an unexpected encounter will test her and make her rediscover the lost passion. The person she runs into is a small (very small) character, Lucas, to whom flying ship has broken. We don’t know where he’s going and what he’s carrying in his heavy suitcase and when we find out we’re left speechless, because this is the effect that makes when we rediscover us children for a moment, carried away in our childhood made up of impossible stories and extraordinary feats that we forget with time, but of which we continue to have a desperate need.

Seb Agresti’s colorful minimal surrealism

Seb Agresti’s colorful minimal surrealism

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Art

Seb Agresti is a designer and illustrator based in Rotterdam, Holland, who works with a simple, minimal and colourful style. Each table is rigorously built on geometries with strong lines, which act as frames for a type of surrealist imaginary, able to amaze and excite.

His works are scenes in scenes that tell stories that are sometimes real, sometimes interior, with an exotic and original touch.

What makes his creations interesting is the fact that the artist represents his “disconnection from the world”, as he himself states:

“I guess it’s my own feeling of disconnect with the world at times that gets translated into the drawings”.

Feeling detachment from his surroundings, Seb reconnects to the world and manages to synthesize it within his art. You can find other works by the artist on his personal website that you find here.

All This Useless Beauty, Serena Cole’s project about identity

All This Useless Beauty, Serena Cole’s project about identity

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Art

Artist Serena Cole is a mixed media painter and artist who creates interesting works: her project All This Useless Beauty investigates the visual culture and the power of images in our society. In her series, Serena enjoys playing with identity of haracters that she portrays: each face is the result of an image she found at various sources (web, magazine, etc.) which is then elaborated on a pictorial level.

Each table is made with the mixed watercolour-pencil technique, for impeccable stylistic performance. It almost seems like a game of roles in which the artist likes to assign new identities to her female subjects, to explore the complexities of being a woman in today’s world.

If your research intrigues you, take a look at her site, which you find here.

Adele Renault, hyper-realistic street art in Delhi

Adele Renault, hyper-realistic street art in Delhi

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Art

Adele Renault, a Belgian artist born in 1988, is famous for her large-scale street artworks that mainly portray pigeons and people with a hyper-realistic style.

On the occasion of the Lodhi Art Festival in Delhi, promoted by  St+art India, the artist has painted two pigeons intent on building a shelter: what strikes the eye of the spectator is surely the great realism given by the play of shades, contrasts and details made scrupulously and obsessively.

Besides the technique, the expressiveness of the two subjects is also very accentuated, studied with compositional precision. It will be possible to view the festival until the end of March.

You can see other large-scale paintings by Adele on her website and on Instagram.

Ridley Scott’s The Seven Worlds campaign for Hennessy deserves an Oscar

Ridley Scott’s The Seven Worlds campaign for Hennessy deserves an Oscar

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Art

Each drop is an Odyssey, the slogan of the Hennessy campaign was the spark that ignited the imagination of the famous and award-winning director Ridley Scott, who starting from this phrase has created a commercial that deserves an Oscar.

The campaign is called The Seven Worlds and the video, just over 4 minutes long (but a short version has also been released), is a journey to discover what is hidden in every single drop of one of the world’s most prized cognacs. We are taken to a universe with seven different planets that represent the seven notes of flavor of the liquor: Sweet notes, Rising heat, Spicy Edge, Flowing Flame, Chocolate lull, Wood crunches, Infinite Echo. 

The director was able to perfectly recreate seven places that would fit and give back the best taste, a task that was not easy, in practice he had to transform something so abstract as a flavor in something visible. To do this, he relied on all possible film techniques, creating mood boards beforehand, shooting in the studio and making impeccable use of special effects. 

The Seven Worlds is proof that sometimes great cinema and advertising are not only close worlds, but when they are united by a great professional the result is sensational.
