BANK HOLIDAY – SPRINGTIME

In the Northern Hemisphere when Easter time comes around temperatures start getting warmer; the early sunlight wakes you up and you can go for nice run in the park after work while you see the sunset; streets look vibrant and beautiful and you spend at least 10 minutes in front of your wardrobe thinking what to wear as the weather keeps changing drastically. Easter is synonym of spring. Well, in other countries it’s in the middle of autumn, but it’s undeniable that spring is a really good time of the year. You start realizing that summer is closer than ever and the streets are full of colorful trees in full bloom. Here you go with some images to show how these trees lighten up every town, landscape and inspire us. Have a nice holiday!

PHOTOGRAPHER – LAYLA SAILOR

Minimalism is great, yes. It can be striking and very engaging but the excess and interminable vibrant details in a piece can be really surprising and attractive as well. It really helps us to focus on the work and stare at the little spots trying to discover new niceties.

 

When I looked at Layla Sailor‘s photographs and projects in which she has been involved as an Art Director, I really got hypnotized by the colors that she features and her unique aesthetic. All her works are iconic. It’s very easy to get lost between the shades and dreamy prints and figures that she features. Even if each piece is undoubtedly full of different features the result instead of being saturated, is playful and fun. She creates surreal and surprising situations with a very strong composition. But that strength is not just transmitted visually. Layla expresses her political concerns through her art. Taking into account that Sailor gets her source of inspiration from cinematography and religious iconography is understandable the great value that her hyper-realistic and whimsical artworks have; not only visually but culturally as well.

ARTIST – DAVID MARINOS

We never should judge people for the age they have. No matter if they are too old or too young for any type of job or hobby. The age that we have is just a number and it shouldn’t condition how other should see what we create or present. Greek David Marinos is a good example of how talent and creativity can’t be measured by the age.

 

With 16 years old, Marinos has developed a very energetic and vibrant style that matches perfectly with his aim of showing to the world his own work. Classical images are distorted and combined with digital procedures, using strong colors creating a very dynamic result that doesn’t look saturated at all. I really like to see how digital techniques can change completely our own point of view of the classical and old aesthetics; and David has succeeded in portraying the new young and fresh way of perceiving what surrounds us.

DESIGNER – NIXI KILLICK

Crazy. Crazy yet stunning. This is the first thing that came to my mind as soon as I discovered Australian Nixi Killick‘s designs. Every outfit is composed of innumerable details that gather all types of textures and materials but keeping her unique and revolutionary style alive. In both of her latest collections, Nixi explores the connection between innovative futuristic shapes and the present ones. Her creations are presented in the most imaginative and engaging way with vibrant colors and surreal aesthetic.

 

In her latest collection ‘Real Eyes’, Nixi shows the combination between bio-psychedelic street wear and hybrid-maverick design. Items printed with hypnotizing prints to show the collision between fashion and art with some slight inspiration from the Indian culture are featured.

 

On the other hand, her other collection ‘Future-tive Nature’, the progressive magnetism between the present and radically expansive possible futures are examined. The technology is used to create a brand new universe. Laser cutting, vacuum forming and 3D printing hi-tech techniques are featured with low-tech ones to investigate new structures and layers. It’s impossible to choose between Nixi’s creations.

 

Appart from being aesthetically striking, the idea behind their fabrication is unique and unprecedented, having as a result a beautiful and powerful universe.
