Hense is an Atlanta-based street artist with a particular gift at transforming urban spaces into colourful installations.  A great example is this church in Washington DC that Hense has transformed into a huge graffiti. It seems a new life has come to this iconic building, giving it a different meaning, and becoming somehow less a praying space but a social space.

Modern art in Versailles

art

Versailles-ArtXavier-Veilhan-

Le Chateau de Versailles is a well-known palace of the french aristocracy. This is where Marie Antoinette ate cakes, and where she lost her head. Thus, it is an iconic place of the classic architecture and the visible explanation that, in the old times, aristochrats were rich and had nice houses.

This is why is quite surprising that modern art can be found across its doors. Therefore, a giant Jeff Koons balloon sculpture it’s visible in a courtyard or a Joana Vasconcelos crotched installation has been installed in the stairs.

I do think that this is jutxtaposition is quite interesting, what about you?

Hi there ! Look at this picture above. Doesn’t it remaind you of something you’ve already seen? I am telling you, it should tell you something, specially if you are art lovers. Not yet? Ok, then, look at the picture below:

Now you get it, right? Famous painting by Casper David Friedrich “Wanderer above the Sea of Fog″ . The similarities are evident, and this is what Remake project is looking for.

Students in the United Kingdom (but also overseas) had sent their own interpretations of famous paintings. It was only allowed to present photographies, not drawings nor collages or any other piece of art. It was also a condition to re-interpret famous classical paintings, and the truth is that people made it REALLY good.

Are you able to identify every piece ?

Happy New Year with Street Art

art, design, ilustration, photography

I would like to start this 2012 with something fun. What is better than street art? At least to me, this is a perfect way to freshly begin a new year. Street art always keeps my attention, it is so creative and can be expressed in so many different ways !

It’s difficult to choose a favourite, but I guess my choice would be all the pieces where an already built thing is used (traffic sign, tree) and with the new design it is converted into something completely different. And yours ?

Anyway, happy new year to everybody !
