Amazing performance…print some umbrellas, openning with a specific rhythm and ending with some extra sound, detail…This creative project is a collaboration between Anna Burns, creative director and Thomas Brown, Photographer. POP POP BANG BANG PROJECT.
Explosions, guns, and girls are the three themes that they chose for this project. Typical themes you always find in movies. They create their own conceptual, visually arresting settings in three different London locations.

Realism Painting. Digital Painting. Contemporany Painting. Blending history with current life.
This Russian Art Collective, AES + F, they create a new way of viewing the biblical moment of the reincarnation. The new Reincarnation. As one of the members says «this is the idea of some kind of new humanity, new man – maybe he will have a tail? We think humankind will have some kind of mutation in the future». In my opinion, they have achieved perfectly the combination between old insight with contemporany technologies, tools and cloths. I like the small and important details of movement of the hands, mouths and posture of the actors. They have developed a signature style of photography and high-end production, producing surrealistic art films rife with mythological and theological imagery.
Watch the artwork in this video.
AES+F comprises conceptual artists, Tatiana Arzamasova and Lev Evzovich, graphic designer Evgeny Svyatsky and fashion photographer Vladimir Fridkes. They define their artworks as the union between Calvin Klein and Caravaggio. They have made some other films like this, such as Feast of Trimalchio.

When I saw yesterday by chance some designs of Mary Katrantzou, Greek fashion designer, I fell in love with her surrealist patterns, over the top combination of colors and her work of art. Listen to her talking about Spring-Summer 2012 Collection.
Nature vs. Nature in blocks of yellow, then fucksia, then red… blue, green, black! Classic prints + Contemporany illustrations = floral cacophonies, sea bed corals and scallop shells. I love Mary Katrantzou’s combinations of classic style with industrial style. She introduces agressive jewellery in her designs.
