Utopian Dwelling

We have gone from mud brick houses to homes built out of wood and stone to concrete and steel. Limited space has become an increasingly critical issue. With affordability, convenience, practicality coming into play, we often forget about the kind of homes we desire.

Jing Zhang has taken ideas from childhood and developed types of homes that could only exist in utopia, and has conveyed them using simple, beautiful and brightly coloured illustrations.

G-Shock vs State Tretyakov Gallery

G-Shock’s lookbook for its Spring/Summer 2016 collection features skaters in the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.

The photographs portray a distinct contrast of what one would expect to see in an art gallery, but that’s what makes the shots so appealing. They come across as rebellious and youthful with the streetwear-adorned men posing in front of Russian art pieces with their tattoos, skateboards and bikes; some images even feature the boys break dancing and skating through the gallery. Aside from product close ups, almost every shot unassumingly displays G-Shock watches on the skater’s wrists.

Newspaper Animal Sculpture

Japanese paper artist Chie Hitotsuyama skilfully creates textured sculptures of animals using a technique involving rolled strips of wet newspaper. The unique application of each newspaper segment proves to be an eeffective method of forming the wild fur of snow monkeys or the density of scales found on the back of an iguana. For Hitotsuyama, these details are critical as she seeks to create the most lifelike sculptures possible.

Las Etnias

‘We are all connected,’ says street artist creating record-breaking mural for Rio 2016 Games

Graffiti isn’t an Olympic sport, but if it were then Eduardo Kobra would win gold for his 2787 square meter mural that he painted for this year’s Rio Olympics.

The mural, titled Las Etnias (The Ethnicities) stands a astonishing 15 meters tall and can be found in Rio’s port district. It features five faces from five different continents that represent both the five Olympic rings as well as the cultural diversity of the games.

Kobra worked on the piece for two months, and during that time he used 100 gallons of white paint, 400 gallons of coloured paint and 3,500 cans of spray paint. If confirmed by the Guinness Book of Records, Kobra’s mural will be the world’s largest mural completed by a single man.

“These are the indigenous people of the world,” says Kobra on the Rio 2016 official website. “The idea behind it is that we are all one. We’re living through a very confusing time with a lot of conflict. I wanted to show that everyone is united, we are all connected.”
