Salvatore Benintende aka TVBOY and his provocative street art

Giulia Guido · 4 years ago · Art

After the mural Amor Populi, with the famous kiss between Salvini and Di Maio, the street artist Tvboy has also become known among those who do not yet know how to define Urban Art as an act of vandalism or real art.

Born in Palermo in 1980 as Salvatore Benintende, he grew up in Milan where he began painting in the streets at only sixteen, where he attended the Polytechnic studying graphic design and where Tvboy was born. Now he lives in Barcelona, where, with the technique of an engineer, he designs and creates his works.

His style is influenced by American Pop Art, in particular by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Keith Haring, but at the same time is inspired by the work of the great artists of the past, such as Leonardo, Botticelli, Michelangelo.

By choosing the street as exhibition space, Tvboy submits to the critics of the public, welcoming over the years more and more consents and approvals, but also going against institutions and politics. It is not surprising that many of his works, including Amor Populi, have been immediately removed.

However, in some cases, it is not the work that matters, but what triggers, the message that transmits.

There are two different Hong Kongs in Cody Ellingham’s shots

There are two different Hong Kongs in Cody Ellingham’s shots

Tommaso Berra · 2 weeks ago · Photography

New Zealand photographer Cody Ellingham believes that there are two versions of Hong Kong: a real one that exists with its monumental skyscrapers and one that we remember fondly in our memories. 
The series “Fantasy city by the harbour” – from which a book of photographs was also born – stems precisely from an attempt to try to understand how we can return to the “other” Hong Kong, of which only the dreams and atmospheres dense with neon and people frantically roaming the streets of the Asian city remain.

The shots mainly show the architecture of the city, studied through the calm moments of the metropolis. In fact, people never appear, a challenge considering that Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated areas on the planet with its 7 million inhabitants.
In the streets, therefore, only silence remains, interrupted by the buzzing of neon lights, which Cody Ellingham uses to accentuate the aesthetic effect of the views, as if they were sets for a futuristic film set in a hyper-technological city of androids and flying machines.
The photographer had the opportunity to study the city during his frequent travels, choosing moments of calm to make even more vivid and real the Hong Kong that persisted in his memories but was difficult to find in everyday life. The fog favours the general suspended atmosphere of the scenes, the large billboards look like TVs left on after falling asleep on the sofa while the lights of the skyscrapers belie the whole thing: the city is not sleeping.

Daniele Frediani’s journey among the nomadic peoples of Kyrgyzstan

Daniele Frediani’s journey among the nomadic peoples of Kyrgyzstan

Tommaso Berra · 3 weeks ago · Photography

Is it possible for urban man to abandon all stimulus and service of the city to reconnect with an idea of brutal pragmatism dictated by nature? Photographer Daniele Frediani has embarked on a journey to Asia, to some of the territories in which the truth of time and space overpower appearances, consumption and weaknesses of our society.

Frediani in Kyrgyzstan perhaps saw what would happen if we were forced to go back to living as we did centuries and centuries ago, dependent on the cycle of nature and the animal cycle. The shots in his photo series show Kyrgyz nomads as they live by eliminating everything superfluous, decreasing the margin of error, of doubt about what is right or wrong. What the protagonists of these photos have at their disposal is only what their animals have to offer, while all around them are only large grasslands still cold in the Song Kol Lake area.
Living with them is an experience that takes you to another world, a world without time and space: before the Internet and social media, before technology and electricity,” said Daniele Frediani.
