Art Library by Ghigos Ideas

Ghigos Ideas designed this library in Maxxi, Rome, introducing some contemporary art.

Project description:

Is it possible to put contemporary art in alphabetical order? Can you file it?

How tell it to an exhibition audience?
Perhaps thinking of an exhibition that is also an archive, a special archive, like an artwork into artworks which allows to approach art in a different way.

It is an open and generous archive, where you can live a learning experience according to personal approach, and reinvent it each time with different materials.

In a timeless library are on stage the story of the DOCVA archive and the purposes of the MAXXI museum, in a dualism between tradition and contemporaneity that is also one of the interpretations of the space.

This encounter is embodied by a graphic: a big anamorphic sign fills part of the room. It is only possible to comprehend it entirely from the entrance, anywhere else it just looks like a wide collection of fragments and colored patterns scattered all over spaces and furnitures.

Swedish artist – Stina Persson

Swedish artist Stina Persson is coming to the states with a solo show at Gallery Hanahou in New York this September. As a commercial illustrator, she normally has to create more altered, defined, flawless sorts of pieces for clients. So, for this show she decided to offer her original work with flaws and all. To her, that means skewed perspectives, unorthodox color combinations and visible paint drips. And I think the results are absolutely gorgeous! Here’s a little sneak peek at some of her pieces for the upcoming show.

Life is art – overrated

“i think everything in life is art.
what you do. how you dress.
the way you love someone,
and how you talk. your smile
and your personality. what you
believe in, and all your dreams.
the way you drink your tea.
how you decorate your home.
or party. your grocery list. the
food you make. how your
writing looks. and the way you

life is art.”

Imperial by Bel Ragay

Imperial was one of the winning pieces in the 2010 Noise Singapore Arts and Design competition by Bel Ragay.

“Women of all ages have often described their hair as their crowning glory. I have always been fascinated over the fact that hair plays a great factor on women’s lives. We braid it, put flowers, tiara, crowns, colours on it – just some of the many creative ways we make ourselves more beautiful through our hair. This artwork celebrates the beauty and creativity of women with their hair and how important it is for women to have beautiful hair.”

Intricate Scenes Inside Toilet Rolls (5pics)

When most people see a bare toilet roll, instincts tell them to throw it away. But as they say, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. French artist Anastassia Elias saw the artistic potential in toilet rolls, and proceeded to create intricate scenes inside of them.
