Paolo Pedroni is a promising young artist coming from the Italian Pop Surrealism scene. I really admire the soft and delicate touch of his style, which explores the bittersweet side of his imaginary world.
‘It needs a flight of fancy to make a good picture turn bad’. That was my thought when I saw my little nephew ripping out cartoon stickers from his album. Then I started to ruin some pop culture icons by reshaping them into a digital collage. That’s how the series How I Destroy A Mith come about.
A young talented director from Southern Italy, Roberto De Feo has got the makings of a promising and skillful horror film-maker. Have a look at his short film Ice Scream and get ready to be dread to death.
Jennifer Collier is an artist who gives new life to used paper by turning it into fashion. Her creations have been featured in top high-fashion magazines such as Elle and Marie Claire.
When the art of dance meets the illustration of Ryan Woodward, the rest is history. Or perhaps the most incredible animation you may ever see. There’s not much to say about this amazing piece, just watch and enjoy.
I recently discovered the work of Quentin Shih, a one-of-a-kind Chinese photographer and artist. I especially appreciate his natural propensity for minimal and the delicate touch that makes his works as soft as silk.
3D art is one of my biggest passion. I think one of its limits is the human figure (even in the best artworks, it always looks too fake, like a plastic dummy). I changed my mind, though, when I first saw the masterpieces of this Japanese artist Kazuhiko Nakamura. His phenomenal creatures seem to come to life.
Terry Rogers is one of my favourite photorealistic painters. He used to work with huge linen canvases which he filled with captivating people, bored by their spoiled life and focused on satisfaction of their vices. His art talks about the new society of the young, rich, and beautiful. I appreciate the under-handed criticism that is always a constant in his artwork.
Find your safe place, listen and relax, let yourself get carried away, follow the warm voice of Mr Waits. No! That’s not an autogenic training session. It’s just a good way to blend arts together: poetry, music and kinetic typography.
A few weeks ago, I was captured by this incredibly well made short movie and I’m still wondering how far can technology go? In this case, it has the power to bring old fashioned black and white back down to earth, updating it with the latest matrix-kinda-style visual effects.
