    ‘Universe of Words’: Art Installation with 140,000 Pieces of Paper

    I always believe that art in all its forms, painting, writing, sculpture, cinema, photography or an installation, is a vehicle for an artist to express everything he could not express in words. Emmanuelle Moureaux turns this idea around and turns everything that can be expressed into art with thousands of letters and paper concepts that, in an explosion of color, give rise to a fantastic installation, to a whole universe of words. “Universe of Words” is the fantasy in the form of an installation created by the French architect based in Tokyo, Emmanuelle Moureaux. Within the framework of the Tanabata Festival and inspired by the tradition of writing wishes on…

    Peeta transforms ordinary buildings in Giant Optical Illusions

    The Italian urban artist Peeta (web) combines elements of graffiti and abstract art to paint murals that seem to transform and dissolve large architectural structures. The abstract shapes swirl and cut the walls creating optical illusions that defy common sense and logic. The most recent location in which Peeta has painted his amazing murals is a building in Mannheim, Germany, which is part of the Stadt.Wand.Kunst 2019 street-art project. For such a project, Peeta painted a great geometric design on a Mannheim building. Using sharp lines, curved shapes and different shades of blue, white and gray, he visually altered the edge of the structure, creating a new impossible facade. “I…

    Whales with Ocean Plastics Agonize in Budapest

    We know not only whales but also the Mediterranean Sea is drowning. The impact of its ecosystem is a cause for alarm and urgent measures to ensure its survival. But Greenpeace has something to say. The Mediterranean Sea is one of the most visited tourist destinations by Hungarians every summer, but unfortunately, tourists who come to their favorite sea have to meet another guest: water pollution. According to WWF, almost 570 thousand tons of garbage flood the sea each year, equivalent to 33,800 plastic bottles per minute. Activists from Greenpeace put a couple of life-size sculptures of two whales that emerge from a sea of ​​plastic debris in front of…

Its vibrant night landscapes portray the fascinating metropolis of cement and neon, its buildings and inhabitants. Hosokawa Ryohei often plays with perspective, light and reflections, using puddles and streets that are slippery with rain as part of his compositions.

    “Sea Walls: Artists for the Ocean” mix Art and Awareness

    Art is capable of everything and even more on the street, when it is within reach of all those minds and hearts willing to be removed, moved and aware of certain problems that we can not continue to ignore. There is an initiative that has materialized in art and activism and is moved by a maxim: “A drop of paint can create an ocean of change“. The situation of the world’s oceans is alarming; the data thrown on pollution and number of species dying in the ocean being invaded by huge amounts of plastic are devastating. That’s why you have to activate the alarms to create awareness and, you have…

    After being rejected, My Dog Sighs leaves art to be found

    My Dog Sighs is a talented urban artist from England who created his first drawing when he was seven years old. Since then, everyone knew him as a child who drew well, and that was enough to set him on the path to becoming an artist. My Dog Sighs left his job in elementary school where he worked as a teacher, decided to become a professional and began painting everything he thought the galleries would like. However, the reality was not that easy: after visiting all the galleries within a radius of 200 miles and receiving a “no” from each of them, he lost hope for some time. Until one…

    Daku fills the streets of India with poems

    It could be a metaphor, but no, the Indian artist Daku used sunlight to fill the streets of India with poems. Panjim, capital of Goa, southwest India, has been the place chosen for this intervention that is becoming visible as the abundant light of the region makes its appearance every day. A hanging fishing net with the inverted letters incorporated makes it possible for the sun to filter through it and project the texts on the ground. “Time works wonders“, “Time moves“, “Time flies over us, but leaves behind its shadow“, “Time fades“, “Time is an illusion” are some of the phrases that pedestrians they are on their way down…

    Philip Barlow shows us what is to be miope

    If we have never needed glasses in our lives, we probably are not even aware of how little or how many people see the world, due to myopia, astigmatism, and others. I have myopia, but not much, really. The South African painter Philip Barlow has created a series of hyperrealistic paintings that show how short-sighted people see without glasses everything that surrounds them. We can barely make out the shapes in the paintings at first glance, everything looks blurry. But every short-sighted person will agree that this is the world when you take off your glasses. That uncomfortable feeling of being on the beach, getting out of the water, and…

    Tatsuya Tanaka reinvents everyday objects in miniature scenes

    It is amazing the gift the Japanese Tatsuya Tanaka has: potato chips that become dunes, a ring binder in which a game of tennis is played, a comb turned into the bridge of a Japanese folklore scene or glasses of pasta that make a bicycle. For Tanaka, any object is a fantastic miniature scene and gives them a new dimension and a new concept, as incredible is the level of detail that gives their small protagonist figures. I find it really incredible, an authentic genius, to work and create on that scale; the result of Tanaka’s compositions is spectacular and the advertising treatment of his captures is really stimulating. The…

    The sensual world of Elena Vizerskaya

    Today, I had the opportunity to see the fantastic work of the digital artist Elena Vizerskaya, better known as KaSSandrA, who contemplates reality from metaphysics, intertwining them in a perfect cohesion. Kassandra studied at the Institute of Art and Design in Kiev, specializing in Environmental Design, in which she has never worked. She started creating his works in 2004, without any commercial intention. In 2009, considered the possibility of selling his photos, and does it in istockphoto, with an unconventional work, but one that gets great acceptance. Her passion for photography and the creation of collages began spontaneously in childhood and became a possibility of self-expression and a way of…
