Wall Surfaces (27 stops – Bari), the public work of David Tremlett

Wall Surfaces (27 stops – Bari), the public work of David Tremlett

Giulia Guido · 6 months ago · Art

The British artist David Tremlett was called to redevelop the headquarters of the Soprintendenza Archeologia di Bari, the monumental complex of Santa Chiara and San Francesco della Scarpa. Wall Surfaces (27 stops – Bari), a wall drawing designed to give new life to the entire complex, consisting of two historic buildings and a more recent one that connects them, was created. David Tremlett focused on the latter, creating a work composed of 27 colored elements in soft tones representing 27 columns, the same number of times the artist has been to Bari.

In addition, Wall Surfaces (27 stops – Bari) stands out for its minimalism, a tribute that Tremlett wanted to make to Marilena Bonomo, cultural operator and gallery owner who has distinguished herself throughout her career and who died in 2014. 

For the mural, entirely made of permanent pastel, were involved some students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Bari who, in addition to having had the good fortune to work side by side with the artist, also had the opportunity to experiment with his technique.

Tiny Pricks: Trump’s most controversial phrases on show in New York

Tiny Pricks: Trump’s most controversial phrases on show in New York

Collater.al Contributors · 6 months ago · Art

The artist and activist Diana Weymar has created the project “Tiny Pricks” which consists of a series of hand-embroidered pieces that recite the most famous, outrageous and sometimes funny phrases of President Trump found on Twitter. It all started as a game, on January 8, 2018, when he sewed “I am a very stable genius” into an abandoned piece of his grandmother’s cloth from the ’60s, which immediately became an immediate success after being published on Instagram.

The artist opened his idea to a community of sewing enthusiasts, who have since contributed amazingly embroidered fabrics. The project is then open to the public and their participation. It has evolved into the biggest ever protest – textile – against Trump, with over 700 unique pieces, hand-stitched, and hundreds of participants from around the world.

The diffusion has become more and more difficult to follow but Weymar plans to continue the series until Donald Trump’s mandate expires. It aims to create 2020 “Tiny Pricks” by 2020.

We find all the pieces on display at Lingua Franca in New York City but only those created by Diana can be purchased.

Zaid Zawaidah transforms influencers into paintings by Picasso

Zaid Zawaidah transforms influencers into paintings by Picasso

Claudia Fuggetti · 6 months ago · Art

Inspired by Picasso and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Dubai-based artist Zaid Zawaidah has chosen to use simple brushstrokes using only primary colors to completely change the photographs of Instagram’s influencers.

Probably also taken by the boredom of having to “suffer” always the same type of images, Zaid creates works of art and surprises all those who look at them. The artist prefers a mixed media approach, which reminds us very much of the illustrations of Koketit, an Israeli artist who creates fashion works on every surface, of which we have previously spoken here.

Unlike Koketit, which mainly uses neutral shades, Zaid prefers bright, sometimes almost fluorescent tones. These shades of colour help to recreate a somewhat tribal mood.

Take a look at our gallery and visit Zaid’s Instagram profile here.

The world illustrated on a Moleskine by Fabio Consoli

The world illustrated on a Moleskine by Fabio Consoli

Collater.al Contributors · 6 months ago · Art

Illustrator, graphic designer, musician, traveler, Fabio Consoli is certainly a restless soul, but perhaps it will not be necessary to label him once we’ll discover his creations.

Starting from Catania riding his bike he started to travel the world; the first stop is London, where he cultivated a passion for drawing by studying at the University of the Arts. He crossed the ocean and then moved to New York where he attended the Manhattan School of Arts and met Milton Glaser who advises him: “If you want to be an illustrator you have to find your style”.

But he prefers not to be tagged , and for these reason he continues to cycling and live other adventures that slowly will build his personal way of seeing things.

In the meantime he also dedicated space to music, composing soundtracks for the video stories of his travels, whose protagonists are his own drawings.

During these years he kept an illustrated diary on his Moleskine: stories, drawings and photos of the places and emotions experienced, conveyed on the Idrawaround blog.

So many are the stops along the journey but we know that in the end, we always come back home. In his land on the slopes of Etna he founded his studio, he teaches graphic design at the Abadir Art Academy and continues to work for international companies. His works have appeared in Print Magazine, Picame mag; he has also published two books, as an illustrator and writers.

After all this he is still not tired and we can do nothing but follow him, not necessarily by bike, and wait for his next story.

Discover a selection of his colorful works here below, follow him on Instagram.

Summer Solstice, it’s Summertime for the artist Lizzie Gill

Summer Solstice, it’s Summertime for the artist Lizzie Gill

Claudia Fuggetti · 6 months ago · Art

Brooklyn mixed media artist Lizzie Gill has created a series of works inspired by the Summer season, Summer Solstice. Her artistic practice explores the themes of American retro in a contemporary context and is based on typical evocative scenes; very often the artist uses vintage photographs that she likes to rework at will.

“The works open up new perspectives that show not only where we are, but also where we will be”.

The images become fragments of the Ego, memories of the past that help us to understand the present and, perhaps, also the future. Summer is the main theme of the various plates, which appear fresh, carefree and poetic: the narration of these miniatures is all implied, in such a way as to allow the viewer to recreate personal memories.

Lizzie has also been defined as an artist with a conceptually post-feminist approach: she explores themes such as the modern approach to romanticism and how it evolved through technology, in the form of online courtship.

Discover Summer Solstice on Lizzie’s website and in our gallery.
