Just boys…

311451fa96dedd51f6f4d3a11c99b2edSuch an interesting art piece. This image of photographer/artist Thomas Rousset,
from his series Prabérians.
The first instant moment you see it,
it’s just two boys photographed in their bathroom/home.

But then the story will be told…. Well your imagination is starting the engine…
You will end up watching this for a long time and figuring out the story.
It’s very contemporary, but also very normal as in the subject.
A village with inhabitants.
Boys at home.

But there is something strange, something different.
Something very tasteful and stylish! Amazing colors.
You can’t count on your relaxed brain, it needs to work…
Enjoy your imagination around this very cool
contemporary piece of art. It’s a mirror. Beautiful!

Thomas said this about it (and yes he can do best as he’s the artist):
‘Prabérians takes roots in a dialogue between my rural origins
and my creative process as a photographer.
These images came out of a fantasy; that of a fictive rural community,
lost in space and time, evolving in a dream-like French countryside.
My photographs are not following a defined narration;
every mise-en-scène rather tries to rebuild my memories of a rural world
where the farmers’ routine is confronted
with the most exotic archetypes of the peasant life.
The real world is my inspiration.
I make photographs with the inhabitants of my village and their animals
and re-locate them in a floating reality that is timeless, unlikely and intriguing;
a reality that is a blend of a raw normality and absurd exuberance’.

Rop van Mierlo Rules!

The Dutch Artist making impressive artworks
in a very special technique with waterpaint.
Incredibly beautiful!!!

His new book SOME LOGIC
was launched in Amsterdam a few weeks ago…
(how could we missed that? …)
It’s a follow up from his first book Wild Animals.
This book contains artworks of beautiful animals like
a giraffe, a bumblebee, a panda, a crocodile, a mandrill.

It maintains the same level of perfection.
Incredibly brilliant in colors and forms…
so very subtle… amazing!

Don’t miss this:
the making of SOME LOGIC

Olympic coolness!

All we see right now (well on a screen!)
is snow, ice and incredibly jealousmaking
trained pro’s.
It’s all about the Olympics and we love it.

A while ago we’ve bumped into this great artwork
of  Dutch SEBASTIAAN BREMER.
Totally contemporary  Olympic coolness!

Curated by THE JEALOUS CURATOR.
We love the name and concept.
‘Damn, I wish I though of that…’
So funny and brilliant!

Enjoy more of cool art here
and of all the great pro-dudes and dudettes

Big bear, little bear

Romania

This amazing picture of Hungarian photographer Tamas Dezso
caught our eye this morning
(Thanks GUP Magazine).
First we thought it was a costume… in a way it is.., but this seems to be real.

It is Ciprian, the Bear Dancer.
Tamas photographed this beautiful image, FOR US POETRY, this year.
Amazing light and a strange scenery. You have to look twice,
before you even understand the image.

This is one of the amazing photographs he took for his ongoing project
NOTES FOR AN EPILOQUE
It portrays the transformation from the region’s hardest dictatorship,
Romania, into a more modern world.

From citizens in tiny little villages, with all their traditions,
who struggle with this fast ‘modern’ change…
All urged on by modernisation.

To all the gigantic concrete buildings, as a left over from their history…
who need to be pulled down step by step, piece by piece.
In the manner of termites…

The whole series of these photographs
is absolutely stunning.
Which feels strange because the subject is
pretty sad so how can we be so excited about an image.
He hit the right chord so very well.

We love the little bear forever!

 

Laughing out loud!

For a rainy boring, Amsterdam, Monday morning, we really need this…
It’s so funny… we had to laugh out loud!

These portraits of Barcelona-based photographer Yago Partal.
A combination of portraits of animals, photographed from the front…,
mixed with cool dressed human bodies.

Check all of them here! It will make you laugh anyway!

Happy Monday!

Wild and Sweet!

A true ‘must-have’… This book is one of our favorites ever… It’s really art!
The artist, Rop van Mierlo, used a very special technique with waterpaint…  which makes it looks so incredibly soft…  Like it’s puppy hair.
Really brilliant! You want the animals to become real.

So a ‘must-have’ for all contemporary families. And a great gift too! It’s 325 x 230 mm, hardcover, so you can display it easily.
You really want to… And Rop is also selling big (poster size) prints of each animal.
The kids will be wild about it!
Check his ‘planet’ for all the products.

ENJOY ART!

Layered coolness by mr. Haroshi

Made of old skateboards, this is ultimate recycling! These are really impressive artworks!

If you know how many layers a skateboard-deck has and realise that it’s not just a flat piece of wood and see these incredibly detailed sculptures… then you know how many hours/days/weeks/months he must work on  this.

Mr. Haroshi ‘s work is so pure and dedicated. His experience and almost crazy knowledge is necessary to make this kind of art. He’s able to differentiate from thousands of used decks… by lines, shapes, colors and every other detail… before being able to make a real piece of art, like the one we love most because we wear them, the Nike High Dunk.

We’re happily flabberguested! Thanks for this inspiring work mister Cool Haroshi!
