Sho Shibuya, in this particular moment where we are overwhelmed by bulletins and news flashes, offered us an escape route by painting the panorama of her window in the front pages of the New York Times.
The graphic designer born in Japan but raised in New York, during this quarantine created his particular series: “Sunrises from a small window”.
What started out as a way of documenting the days spent at home during isolation has grown into a captivating series that tells the colors of the sky per day.
From graduated shades of blue to explosions of bright pink and warm orange, Sho Shibuya with its tones and colors from its window provided a relaxing contrast to the strictly covered titles of the day.

KaloolaJay Studio‘s illustrations capture for their simplicity and, at the same time, for their richness of colours and shapes.
Behind the name of KaloolaJay Studio hides Kate, an English artist who has transformed her background in architecture into the starting point of her art. Today, in fact, she illustrates and creates beautiful posters and postcards representing buildings of all kinds.
From the lifeguards’ houses typical of American beaches to the white Greek houses, from historic buildings to modern skyscrapers, Kate’s eye rests on the shapes of the balconies, the lines of the stairs, the colours of the bricks and plasters and returns them to us in illustrations made in flat design technique.
Each element is therefore reduced to a minimum, depth and perspective are sacrificed to leave room for colours and textures. With its illustrations, KaloolaJay Studio opens the doors of a world where it is always summer, where the warm sun beats on the facades of buildings and where we can smell the scent of freedom and carefreeness.
It was June 26, 1945 when the representatives of 50 countries gathered in San Francisco to sign the United Nations Charter. Today, the UN has 193 member states that work together to maintain world peace and security, to develop friendly relations between nations and to foster international cooperation.
This year, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the birth of the United Nations, Saype was commissioned to carry out a huge land art project in front of the entrance to the United Nations Office in Geneva.
On an area of 6,000 square meters, the French artist has drawn with biodegradable paint a boy and a girl intent on drawing what seems to be a better world, where everyone holds hands.
Entitled “World in progress“, Saype’s work is meant to be a symbol of hope for a better future, but also to remind the world that although the future belongs to children, their quality of life depends on us and it is our responsibility to do whatever we can to make it better.
World in progress” evokes the collective construction of our future.
KASC is the new creative space created by Kinahan’s Whiskey to promote the values of cohesion and inclusiveness, the leitmotif of ourera, and the mirror of our needs, where Whiskey meets art with the aim of inspiring evolution of collective thought and thus fostering social progress.
The mission of this new charity project is to create an innovative dimension where the art object is also invested with a social responsibility that allows it to be a driving force for change.
“KASC is much more than a collector’s item, it is an intersection and overlapping of different cultural influences that create a new intermediate identity capable of revealing a hitherto hidden value. It is a contemporary totem, a tangible emotion that wants to provoke confrontation and inspire change” says Zak Oganian, Managing Director of Kinahan’s Whiskey.
For the first release KASC has collaborated with the contemporary artist MARCANTONIO that counts among its collaborations realities such as Seletti, Giorgio Armani and the Rossana Orlandi art gallery. For this occasion the Italian artist has created a work entitled “I’M OK”, whose characteristic is a portrait of the artist himself set inside a bottle of Kinahan’s Whiskey.
The profits from the work, which will be produced in a limited edition of only 500 pieces, will be donated to Food for Soul, the non-profit association of Massimo Bottura and Lara Gilmore, which encourages a healthy and fair food system.
The online pre-order of the artwork is already available and you can find it here.
