FRUITARIAN SHOES

Ache-Rodriguez-fruit-sneakers

Whoever said that you shouldn’t play with food, certainly hadn’t seen Ache Rodriguez‘s art project.
The Gel Lyte V Volcano of Dashape and Asics had a major makeover,
since Rodriguez launched its edible version for #dashapexasicsart.
Using just watermelon, grapefruits, melon, orange, lemon and orange straws for laces,
the fruit Volcano came to life, being a (almost) walking piece of art.

ARTIST OF THE WEEK #10 _ CHRISTOPHE GUINET (“Mr. Plant”)

justgrowit_art_01

Nature is the key component for Paris-born artist Christophe Guinet,
also known as “Mr. Plant”.
As a teenager he was always very much in touch with nature, a fascination
that he later combined with the urban street art inspired by skate and fashion.

Always eager to discover nature in a new composition, traveling has made him
develop new perspectives for plants in different types of media via collage,
photography, graphic design and sculpture.

The Plant Monsieur used Nike sneakers as a canvas to create handcrafted flower
and tree bark sculptures.
Through the sneakers his artistic aim is to express a critique of our consumer culture,
an important perspective of going back to the source; nature and its purity.

ARTIST OF THE WEEK #8 _ SANDRO GIORDANO

Screen Shot 2014-12-12 at 10.49.15

Sandro Giordano is an Italian photographer who builds elaborate setups involving people
falling down and their stuff flying everywhere. That’s it. That’s his thing. And why not?
Humans are programmed to find faceplants funny.
“My photographs are short stories about a falling-down world,” he says.
“Each shot tells of worn-out characters who, as if a sudden black-out of mind and body took over,
let themselves crash with no attempt to save themselves because of fatigue.
They reach their limit beyond which their false self cannot go.”
Sandro is gaining a huge following for his colorful schadenfreude. Are you listening,
designers and models? Don’t forget to get your rest and take your vitamins.
And when someone says ‘break a leg, ‘please don’t actually break a leg or other limb like
Sandro’s poor souls (who, by the way, are live models asked to hold those poses for hours).
Safety first!

ARTIST OF THE WEEK #6 _ Kevin Bourgeois

kevin_bourgeois_art

Kevin Bourgeois, New York based artist, combines photorealism, illustration, and Pop symbolism that results in a
fragmentation of surface and reality, creating very visual sociopolitical art.
His work is versed from past cultural movements and current themes of ideology, mass media, and identity.

Kevin Bourgeois takes the challenging medium of graphite and expands its boundaries in ways that invite inspection,
contemplation, and interrogation. Through an almost painterly application of pencil on paper, Bourgeois experiments with both form
and content, linking the complicated visual field with the equally complex subject matter.
The combination of socio-political messages with a formal technique and aesthetically appealing product to transgress the
association of socially explorative art with messiness and lack of pleasure.

ARTIST OF THE WEEK #2 _ Lucy Sparrow

lucy sparrow

Working at the intersection of contemporary art and craft, Lucy Sparrow’s work sets the agenda
for textiles within the urban art scene. She works mainly with felt and wool,
creating over-sized soft versions of existing objects and major art works The aim of this ‘feltism’ is to question,
playfully, the politics of artistic production and to tackle (often collaboratively) some of realities of contemporary living,
dealing with issues concerning the politics of consumerism, social exclusion and mental wellbeing.

Digestive biscuits, Bisto, Red Stripe, KY Jelly and Men’s Health magazine … Lucy Sparrow has stuffed and
stitched them all for her installation The Cornershop. Funded by Kickstarter, the shop contains nearly
2,000 classic groceries; and they’re all for sale.

ARTIST OF THE WEEK #1 _ OLEG OPRISCO

oleg oprisco1

Oleg Oprisco is an inspired photographer who brings that ethereal,
fairytale quality to his photos that make them iconic. The photographer
who lives and works in Kiev, continues to wow us with his vivid style
of conceptual photography that places subjects in the middle of surreal
and fantastic tableaus. Oprisco spends large amounts of time scouring
flea markets and resale shops to collect props, costumes, and other items
for each shot which he often sketches beforehand in a sketchbook,
with the final shoot requiring 2-3 days of preparation.
His photos have inspired so many photographers to try and capture the
same magical effect, which we truly admire.
As Oprisco says, “Create + Desire”.
