Venice, Italy-based artist/illustrator Jacopo Rosati does these felt collage illustrations that are really cool. Rosati, whose clients include -among others- Wired Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and Geico, has a nice sense of color. Each piece really pops and the felt adds a unique texture to his work. The images are so subtle, but they communicate everything they need to through the artist’s clever, economical character design. The superhero piece (above) is especially great. (via)
I have so many photos from my Italy trip that I’m having a hard time categorizing them into different posts. Hence, here is a post with a mix of a lil bit of everything from me tossing up the devil horns in the house of God to Venice flooding at high tide. It’s a tourist photo album but on crack!
If you noticed that I haven’t been blogging much it’s because I spent the last 2 weeks on vacation in Italy. Wifi was not always available so instead of blogging I spent my days snapping photos of various things of interest in a country that has some of the most amazing art and historical sites on earth. I’m still going through all the photos but in the meantime here’s a small collection of textures, surfaces, and dilapidated walls, doors and buildings from Rome, Florence, Tuscany, and Venice.
I’m really excited about the The Flux Super 8 show (first annual showcase that celebrates eight of the most exciting and emerging filmmakers, video artists, and design collectives from around the world) launching at the Scion Installation Gallery in Culver City this Saturday August 14th- tomorrow! Unfortunately I’ll be in SF for the weekend, but youuu can still check out these 8 artists who will develop site-specific installations created exclusively for or premiering for the first time in Los Angeles for the exhibition. You can also see interviews about artists involved with Flux at their Flux Journal.
The Flux Super 8 are: The Blackheart Gang (Cape Town, South Africa); Max Erdenberger (Portland, USA); Saam Farahmand (London, UK); Sophie Gateau (Paris, France); Miwa Matreyek (Los Angeles, USA); Terri Timely (San Francisco, USA); United Visual Artists (UVA) (London, UK); YesYesNo (Amsterdam, NL + New York, NY + London, UK). More info about Flux and the installation after the jump!
