Spenser Little, wire sculptures for the city

Spenser Little, wire sculptures for the city

Claudia Fuggetti · 4 months ago · Art

Californian artist Spenser Little has spent the last 15 years creating sculptures modeled with wire, resulting in beautiful portraits. His sculptures have been installed on street lamps and other existing structures around the world and have been exhibited at numerous exhibitions.

Most of his works have been made by the artist using a single continuous wire, others have required the intervention of several parts.

Spenser Little bends the rigid material using a pair of pliers until the figure fits the image he has in mind. The creations have a double personality and alternate irony and playfulness with a reflection on our society, so obsessed with technology.

Many of the artist’s works have been placed in galleries, such as the Thinkspace Gallery, while others have been left in the street, revealing their street soul.

Follow the artist on Instagram now to see in which parts of the world he has placed his sculptures!

Mythology and alchemy in MonkeyBird’s murals

Mythology and alchemy in MonkeyBird’s murals

Claudia Fuggetti · 4 months ago · Art

The duo of anonymous artists MonkeyBird creates large murales that take up the visual stylistic tradition associated with the world of mythology and alchemy.

The two Bordeaux-based artists live traveling around the world and working both externally and internally; they will soon be in Moscow until October 11 for a new project. Members of MonkeyBird have stated that their training in graphic design and industrial design has played a decisive role in shaping their imagery.

MonkeyBird’s style is made up of recurring elements such as the articulated black and white drawings of mythological animal-creatures, enriched with gold chloride, a hue that immediately makes one think of the graphics of ancient sacred texts. Most of the duo’s works of art depict a humanoid monkey and a bird representing “the two faces of mankind: the monkey is realistic, and the bird is a dreamer,” as the 5Art Gallery in Paris reaffirmed.

Essential elements linked to a consolidated visual tradition such as classical architecture, timing devices, and scales add to the couple’s timeless appearance.

The body of the woman in Sasha Podgurska’s paintings

The body of the woman in Sasha Podgurska’s paintings

Claudia Fuggetti · 4 months ago · Art

Sasha Podgurska is a Ukrainian painter who portrays the woman’s body in its complex harmony of forms. Relaxing, dancing and sunbathing by the sea: her subjects, mostly naked, are full of joie de vivre.

“I try to represent the carefree way of living in harmony with nature, as well as women who enjoy the gifts and beauty of the Mediterranean environment”.

After studying drawing, art history, ancient Greek mythology and psychology at school, Sasha spontaneously turned to the artistic nude, inspired by the hyper-realistic details of Renaissance works.

The artist also loves to experiment and does so using watercolors and other types of techniques. Each scene represents moments of everyday life in a voluptuous and sensual key, whether it is a trip to the beach or a moment of return with friends.

Find out more about Sasha’s work on her website.

Waiting Windows, an installation by Note Design Studio

Waiting Windows, an installation by Note Design Studio

Claudia Fuggetti · 4 months ago · Art

Note Design Studio in Stockholm recently completed Waiting Windows, an outdoor art installation consisting of stainless steel structures of various sizes located on a hill; the work represents a meditation on the time we spend waiting for during the course of our lives.

“Waiting is a poetic state of mind, but it is often considered a void in our daily lives; if you allow yourself to actively occupy that moment rather than be passive, then it becomes something else….”

Part of a group commission to create public art in the municipality of Nacka, the site-specific installation is “a sculptural study of the ‘dead time’ between waiting and the event”.

As part of the “The Art of Urban Creation” initiative, the studio was asked to create a public work close to what will be the new Sickla station. Reflecting on the concept of waiting, the team designed the installation by visually translating the multi-faceted sense that this word can take.

In the end, the winning idea was to mirror the landscape through almost metaphysical temporal door-windows. During the daytime hours, the light hits the Windows Waiting, bouncing the forest scenery through its reflection, while at night each window is illuminated on top of the frame, creating a work of art of great effect.
