This is what the art director Mohamed Halawany, based in Cairo, Egypt, imagined. In his “Real Toons” series, he gave Buzz Lightyear, Minnie, Mario Bros or Marge and Homer Simpson a body with human proportions. The artist has also decked out each of these iconic characters in casual clothing and accessories to imagine their everyday look in real life.

A « Shiver House » Adapting to the Forces of Nature http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/07/02/a-shiver-house-adapting-to-the-forces-of-nature-2/ http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/07/02/a-shiver-house-adapting-to-the-forces-of-nature-2/#respond Thu, 02 Jul 2020 16:08:40 +0000 http://www.fubiz.net/?p=938710 Five years ago, the NEON studio installed a reinvention of the common Finnish hut (mökki) at the Barfotastigen exhibition in Korppoo, Finland. The structure “shivers” to adapt to climate change.

Today, a new edition has been created to celebrate the anniversary of the project, built from the Finnish Ply plane.

“While the world is adjusting to the new reality of Covid-19 I feel that there needs to be a greater emphasis given to the way architecture, art, and design might be used as a means of reducing anxiety, connecting us with nature and bringing people together again in public spaces,” said Mark Nixon of NEON.

Beautiful Minimalistic Seascapes http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/06/29/beautiful-minimalistic-seascapes-2/ http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/06/29/beautiful-minimalistic-seascapes-2/#respond Mon, 29 Jun 2020 20:10:13 +0000 http://www.fubiz.net/?p=938585 In her series of abstract acrylic and watercolour paintings Blue Bay, Yulia Martinova depicts the beauty and serenity that the ocean brings. Based in London, the artist has represented  aerial views of marinas, in which a few sailboats and their shadows can be seen here and there. The pieces are immersive and with an almost mesmerizing colour.  Even if the paintings are minimalist, they are miningful  and topical. With the summer that has begun and the heat that is starting to be felt, Martinova’s work is a real freshness.

To learn more about Yulia Martinova and her work, visit her website or her Instagram.

Beautiful Modeling Photography by Laurent Castellani http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/06/29/beautiful-modeling-photography-by-laurent-castellani-2/ http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/06/29/beautiful-modeling-photography-by-laurent-castellani-2/#respond Mon, 29 Jun 2020 07:20:55 +0000 http://www.fubiz.net/?p=938480 Laurent Castellani is a photographer and videographer from Nantes and originally from La Rochelle, in France. After studying at law school and at graphic design school, this artist began his professional career in a studio as a web and graphic digital designer in the luxury sector, a profession he will practice as a freelance since 2003. It was not until 2016 that he invested in photo/video equipment with the personal objective of making 2 films per year. In 2017, thanks to his video projects, his Instagram account gained in popularity. Besides that, he takes photographs inspired by the world of fashion and femininity.

The public enthusiasm ? Laurent owes it thanks to his Mulholland photo series, created in August 2018. Many commercial brands then contact him to collaborate with him. Collaborations that he gives up for some of them because of his agoraphobia (fear of places where it would be difficult or embarrassing to escape or to be rescued).

Disgusted with the fashion industry, which he considers too stereotypical and « bad » for the planet, Laurent creates minimalist portraits of female models filled with simplicity, beauty and neutrality. « Fashion is ruining the planet, it is ridiculous from a moral and ethical point of view. It’s stereotypical, it’s not a legend. We only produce beautiful images to the detriment of many things… Femininity represents strength and beauty. Women are stronger than men, in my opinion. » he tells us. « I don’t like the image of handsome and narcissistic model guys. I’m more commuters who don’t pay attention to them. » he adds. The artist plays on natural light to bring softness to these shots, he sometimes likes to make them dreamlike by using small details and contradictions such as nudity, clothes from other eras, blur, primary color lights… He avoids the superfluous. To do this, he usually « crops » at 80% his shots to keep only the essentials.

His future projects ? He quotes them to us : « My project is to make a film inspired by Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs. Four guys who meet at home to prepare a robbery. 100% testosterone ! I also plan to release a 112-page book in late October-early November, normally, if the post covid-19 situation allows, presenting a series of photos of different strange places in Nantes in which I stage models. » he said. Can’t wait !

Dans ses tableaux, il dépeint la beauté de la nature et la retranscrit avec brio. Observer une de ses toiles, permet à l’esprit de s’évader dans des lieux très charmants, et durant différentes saisons comme dans “l’automne dans les montagnes blanches” ou “la côte du Massachusetts”, par exemple.

Les résultats très naturalistes de son travail sont créés sans l’utilisation de la photographie. Après avoir effectué des études approfondies dans les musées et dans la nature, Eric Koeppel est arrivé à la conclusion que «  les méthodes  des maîtres sont en fait une voix dont la culture contemporaine a un besoin urgent », comme on peut le lire sur son site web. Et en maîtrisant ces techniques, cette affirmation a été prouvée par le succès considérable que son travail a rencontré à l’échelle nationale sous la forme de prix, de publications, de reconnaissance académique, d’expositions et de collection.

Plus de son travail à retrouver sur son Instagram.
