Update: JR – “The Wrinkles of the City” (Shanghai Biennale)

It looks like JR’s latest project (through Galerie Magda Danysz) is underway in China as he starts his installs for “The Wrinkles of the City”. The street pieces are set to coincide with the Shanghai Biennale and will feature the French photographer’s captured images of the elderly who represent the memory of the city. These photos will be pasted up at locations that he feels speak to the heritage of a city that has definitely has its share of ups and downs – “from the […]

Showing: Irina Davis – “Nice Girls” @ Sputnik Gallery

Sometimes it’s good to take a second look. That’s what happened when we did a double-take at Sputnik Gallery and discovered Irina Davis. When we first passed by her alluring works, we thought they were simply painted pin-up model pieces. But then upon closer inspection, we noticed that they were real models in pin-up poses. The twist that got us is that Irina actually paints the faces and certain details with watercolor to give the realistic photos a touch of fantasy and character. Davis’ show […]

Fame Fest ’10: Slinkachu

Probably one of the last artists (see other artists here) to stop by Grottaglie before the Fame Festival opening next weekend is street miniature photographer Slinkachu. The London-based artist worked his magic with his street installations in the Italian town that would probably go unnoticed if you didn’t know where to look. Fortunately, he documents and photographs his clever works for all to enjoy. More pics after the jump…

Streets: JR – “Unframed” Project

As we first told you in our article about JR’s participation in this year’s Fame Festival, he is starting a new series of work in for his “Unframed” project. The idea is to take works of other famous photographers and install them somewhere different and unexpected, allowing them to take new meaning when discovered by passerby’s. The project is co-produced by the Musée de l’Elysée and the Festival Images, with photographs taken from the collection of the museum and pasted up in the city of […]

Fame Fest ’10: JR

With the opening of this year’s Fame Festival just around the corner, another artist arrived to make his unique mark on the city of Grottaglie – JR! After getting past some initial obstacles, the French street photographer pasted up an image from his new series of works – “Unframed” and is the first piece pasted up by him that was not his photography.

Murakami x Britney Spears for POP Magazine

When Britney Spears posted up a photo on twitter of her and Takashi Murakami posing, fans could only wonder what they were up to. It turns out what they were working on was a photoshoot for POP magazine, quite an appropriate pairing for the princess of pop music and the king of pop art. Take a look at what they were working on under Murakami’s art direction (a look that is a cross between retro beauty pageant queen and manga inspired otaku fantasy) after the […]
