The Turning Point, a new vision of climate change

The Turning Point, a new vision of climate change

Giulia Guido · 1 week ago · Art

‘The Turning Point’ explores climate change, the destruction of the environment and species extinction from different perspective.

So quotes the official description of The Turning Point the video, released last month, made by British illustrator and artist Steve Cutts for the Wantaways song of the same name. 

Steve Cutts has always managed to deal with current affairs issues, as he did two years ago with the video clip Are you lost in the world like me? by Moby. This time, his work is completely focused on climate change, but as already announced his vision is completely revolutionary. 

Basically, what Steve imagined is a world where the roles between animals and humans are reversed, so the former go around in cars, eat in restaurants and order online, while the latter live on beaches made of plastic, die choked by bottles and swept away by liters and liters of oil. 

What does not change from reality is the future of the Earth, destined in any case to die, destroyed by the actions of its inhabitants.

Valentine’s Day: Top three best commercials of this year

Valentine’s Day: Top three best commercials of this year

Giulia Guido · 1 week ago · Art

For many people, February 14th means candlelight dinner, chocolates and red roses, but for many others it means advertising. Valentine’s Day, with Christmas and the Super Bowl weekend, is one of those dates that brands around the world are circling in red on the calendar because what better occasion than these to launch a new and winning advertisement. 

Dozens of them have come out for the lovers’ party, but this time we decided to propose only three of them, our favorites. 

Lacta – See The Love 

The first place goes to “See The Love”, the commercial for Lacta, a Greek company that produces chocolate. In the background, they play the notes of Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometime and on-screen several scenes in which love, in all its forms, seems to meet all possible obstacles imaginable. But sometimes it is enough to simply go beyond stereotypes. 

Burger King India – #LonelyNoMore 

Once again Burger King is targeting McDonald’s to make a commercial or rather a whole brilliant campaign. For this Valentine’s Day, Burger King India decided to do something special for the loneliest person they know, Ronald McDonald

Play Station – Feel the power 

Forget about romance, tear-jerking stories, and blatant gestures. Play Station is all about more, just like the video slogan “Feel more than love this Valentine’s“. In the commercial, we see a special team go into underground tunnels and then find themselves in a huge stand full of real beating hearts, each of which is attached to a console.

Emanuele D'Angelo · 7 days ago · Art, Art

London’s Tate Modern, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its opening, has announced a series of new and important exhibitions from May 20th for about a year, including without doubt that of Yayoi Kusama and two of her famous Infinity Room.

The museum located in the Bankside area, until 30 years before it was a power plant, today it is one of the most visited modern art complexes in the world and is estimated to have about 4 and a half million visitors every year.

The two Infinity Rooms by Yayoi Kusama on display are “Infinity Mirrored Room” and “Filled With the Brilliance of Life“, one of the artist’s biggest and most famous installations.
A work of art designed to look like an infinite universe of rotating crystal chandeliers. In addition to the two Infinity Room, the exhibition will also include photographs and films from Kusama’s studio of his early works.

But the anniversary celebrations do not stop there, there will also be a series of 20 new images, showing the links between artists from different places and eras.
Among the many novelties, there will also be a sculpture by Louise Bourgeois’ Maman, which was the first work seen by visitors when they arrived at the opening of the Tate Modern in 2000.

The colorful and surreal illustrations by Jorsh Peña

The colorful and surreal illustrations by Jorsh Peña

Emanuele D'Angelo · 6 days ago · Art, Art

Jorsh Peña is an illustrator who grew up in Mexicali and currently lives in Tijuana, both in northern Mexico.
In his artwork he exposes the dark and mysterious side of seemingly simple objects, his style is a warm mixture of geometry, Mexican culture and fascination for the occult.

Jorsh Peña’s artistic journey began 15 years ago, initially studying marketing and with some friends he had created a clothing brand when one afternoon, a bit by chance, he came across an old illustration magazine, that’s when his passion began.
From that moment on, after spending hours going through every single image, he felt the need to create something that belonged to him personally.

Jorsh Peña’s colourful and surreal illustrations have been defined as capable of reaching straight to one’s subconscious through a single glance.
As if it were a party in continuous development, the subjects are always drawn as playful and ambiguous and strange shapes, but also a little disturbing, in full Mexican style.

The artist, as he says himself, always tries to share and draw something that has a deep meaning, it must not be reduced to a strange doodle.
Although most of the time, he tries to make people not notice the mystical and twisted messages hidden in his illustrations.

His technique is mixed, the last of his artwork in Adobe Illustrator, but Jorsh Peña strongly believes in the importance of starting his project and drawing first on paper.
“It’s the root of any solid work”, he explains, drawing on paper conveys a unique emotion to him, a sort of magic, from a sheet of paper he manages to transform something ethereal into something real.
