Short video for Breakfast – The fearless are here, the BBC spot for the Winter Olympics

Athletes are fearless.
What seems difficult to us, if not impossible, is for them the normality.
What frightens us is something that they have learned to know since they didn’t know would become their work.
Speed, height and obstacles are their bread and butter.

The fearless are here is the spot illustrated by the Smith & Foulkes duo for the BBC sport and PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics.
A concentration of rush, strength and courage that characterizes the champions.

Nancy Fouts surreal sculpture

Nancy Fouts surreal sculpture

Giulia Ficicchia · 2 years ago · Art

Sometimes reality misses creativity. It’s a nostalgia that you can feel on the same routine, the same journeys from home to work, buying the same stuff at the supermarket and so on.

It’s in the art that we confide in order to escape from unwritten rules that we have to follow every day and Nancy Fouts, an American London-based artist, is the best guide to this exploration.

Through her sculptures, apparently common objects become details and characters from fantasy series, sometimes historical and religious provocations, in a meeting between reality and creativity that makes the viewers smile.

It’s nice to know that there’s a completely different world from the one we live and that we can always explore it thanks to Nancy Fouts.

Short video for Breakfast – Negative Space, a short film that explores the father-son relationship

Short video for Breakfast – Negative Space, a short film that explores the father-son relationship

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

There are thousands of details about a relationship.
Every place, object or gesture binds us to someone who has been or is part of our life.

Negative Space, the short film by Baltimore’s two animators Max Porter and Ru Kuwahata, inspired by Ron Koertge’s homonymous poem, tells of the father-son relationship through the art of packing.
Both co-directors, for different personal experiences, immediately identified themselves in the story and realized how much of their childhood memories are linked to textures, objects and places that were part of their routine.

The short film, entirely in stop-motion, was just nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film

For now only they only released the trailer and an interesting behind-the-scenes.
For now we must content ourselves.

At the border between fine art and urban art with Robert Proch’s canvas

At the border between fine art and urban art with Robert Proch’s canvas

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

Robert Proch‘s works, considered the prodigy of the Polish contemporary art scene, hang in the balance between abstract and figurative art and are deeply inspired by the human experience, ordinary events and all those encounters that shape our personality determining the road of our life.
The paths, within his paintings, are chaotic and characterized by a precarious balance, thanks also to the wide palette of colors that stimulates imagination and desire to understand his complex compositions.

His entire work is driven by emotions, by a direct observation and sentimentally dear to the artist.
He says that every time he found himself working on something he didn’t feel tied to, he lost the impact and feeling of being able to communicate his ideas.
After many years of realistic painting, in fact, he began to reduce the number of objects that take part in each scene, this makes his works open to exploration, although symbolism and illustration are elements that he appreciates and that, in the past, have been part of his artistic career.

For the same reason, when he begins a new painting, he does not use an already existing material, he allows himself to be drawn by the composition, with mental rules but not peremptory.

The entire process, from its inception to the complete work, bought him the title of one of the first artists to have contributed to the creation of that creative field located between fine art and urban art.
