Masks by Marco Réa and Chris Milo on Vogue Italia

The new project “Maks” by artist Marco Réa and fashion photographer Chris Milo was recently featured on Vogue Italia.

Marco is one of my favorite artists and I really love the delicate and elegant touch he added to the beautiful pictures by Chris. Considering the medium (spray cans) usually involved in Marco’s process, I bet it was not easy to contribute to these artworks without outshining the work of the photographer, and the achieved result, confirms once more the amazing skills and taste by Marco Réa.

From the release page on Sacredbones page:

“His ability to harness and reveal vulnerability, tension, anxiety and heaviness is unbounded as he confronts both what we repress and what we reveal.”—Vice  Magazine

Jesse Draxler has been exhibiting his black-scale canvases and moon-sick reality-collages both nationally and internationally since 2012. He is privately collected around the world and his most recent solo exhibition “Tire Fire” took place in September of 2017 at Booth Gallery in New York. As an illustrator his client list includes The New York Times, McQ Alexander McQueen, The Atlantic, and The New Yorker, among others. He is also an active member of his music community and has created work for musicians like Zola Jesus and Chelsea Wolf and designed an album cover for Prince.

Born to a family of mechanics, Draxler grew up in rural Wisconsin, and as a child dedicated hours to illustrative studies of cars, trucks and engine parts. Later in adolescence, an equally obsessive relationship with music and sound developed that would ultimately influence his extension-of-self craft. “Music has always played a major role in my life and thus it plays a major role in my work. Music can be a medium for setting the tone to work within, or to trigger the emotions to express through the work.”

Through uninhibited prolificity, Draxler speaks to shaded worlds of confusion – exploring the nameless grey areas that exist between uncertainty and absurdity, fear and surrender. Within this space, obscuring overlays and allusive markings source their strength from darkness, and offer both voids and questions – making the false real, and the real unbelievable with a subtle sense of violence and vulnerability. Although masked, Draxler’s presence runs through a body of work that lives and breathes – searching for what is hidden under sheets of repressed subconscious, and confronting the heaviness of what lies within.

All B1ack::.. | an only black products shop

All B1ack::.. is an online shop selling only black products made with natural, organic ingredients.

Actually, at the moment, there are only 4 products for sale. I hope to see a wider offer in the future, but I must admit I already noticed all b1ack::.. more that year ago and everything looks a little too still.

If you want to buy something, I suggest you to contact the shop before placing the order.

That said, the concept is lovely and I confess you that I also thought, several times, to open an all black stuff shop.

“Destroy with care” – Marco Réa solo show

Marco Réa - Destroy with care

I’m back with a full post just to talk you about an Event you do not want to miss.
Marco Réa’s solo exhibition “Destroy with care”.

If you follow my blog, you know I already expressed my unconditioned appreciation for
Marco and his art. Thus I am excited to promote here his solo show opening  Thursday, 8th June at 6.30 pm at Parione9 Art Gallery in Rome.
The show, curated by Marta Bandini and Elettra Bottazzi, collects more than 60 artworks dating from 2005 and will give you the opportunity to lose yourself in the world of ethereal dark figures created by Marco using spray cans on iconic fashion billboards and ads.

Please check the event page on Facebook for a more comprehensive presentation and feel free to see some of the latest works by Marco here.

New prices on prints by Angelo Roccagli

img_0377

 If you’ll visit Reflectedfaith Shop today, you’ll notice that the prices of the prints by Angelo Roccagli increased.

It was not an easy decision, but after an in depht discussion with the artist, we both concluded that the previus price was ridicusly low. The earnings of each print sale were barely covering the production and handling costs, that price was not giving value to my work and, most of all, to the artist’s work. 

Angelo puts a lot of efforts in creating each of his artworks, spending hours and hours curating every small detail. During the last few years he developed greatly his digital manipulation skills and he found his personal style, both technically and conceptually: If you see any of his works you recognise it and you understand, unquestionably, that you are looking at a gorgeous piece of art.

High quality print and papers add further value to Angelo’s images; a local printer (son of a the great Italian photographer Elio Ciol and artists himself) takes care of the fine art printing process, using the latest technologies in the field and the finest art papers in the market. 

If you buy a print by Angelo Roccagli, and treat it carefully, it will last a lifetime. 

Please check some examples of Angelo’s works below or head to RF Shop to buy a print.
