Andreco "FROM CLOUDS TO ROCKS" @ Traffic Gallery, Bergamo, Italy

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 07, 2014
Italian artist Andreco was one of our absolute favorite aritsts from the Nuart program this year. With an emphasis on environmental and political themes, Andreco works in multiple genres, including street art, gallery work, and the occasional performance and installation piece. His new show, "From Clouds to Rocks," is up now at Traffic Gallery in Bergamo, Italy, and Andreco summarizes it as "inspired by the natural transformations and the phase transitions between solid, liquid and gaseous states of matter. In particular from gas to solid (deposition) and from solid to gas (sublimation). The show is part of the research work called 'Nature as Art'."

What a marble quarry in the Apuan Alps, North Italy, looks like

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 05, 2014
Simply put, this is a portrait about marble. This is an excerpt video of "Italian artist and filmmaker Yuri Ancarani capturing the otherworldly landscape of a marble quarry in the Apuan Alps, Northwest Italy, as Il Capo (The Chief) guides his men through the extraction process." Its spellbinding, beautiful, and really, the otherworldly label is just about right.

Update: The Anatomical Works of Bologna's Nunzio Paci

Illustration // Thursday, October 09, 2014
From the blog Archipel: "Nunzio Paci is an artist living and working in Italy. His whole work deals with the relationship between man and Nature, in particular with animals and plants. The focus of his observation is body with its mutations. The intention is to explore the infinite possibilities of life, in search of a balance between reality and imagination." We love this work, and love how it advances a genre in anatomical works that we have been seeing in recent years. And Bologna continues to be a hotspot for young creatives.

During Italian architect and designer Aldo Rossi's lifetime he accomplished the unusual feat of achieving international recognition in four distinct areas: theory, drawing, architecture and product design and winning the Pritzker Prize in 1990. 'His work combined unabashedly grand forms with the most reductive geometric shapes.' View a collection of his sketches and drawing after the jump...

Blending Into the Street: MP5 in Italy

Street Art // Thursday, September 11, 2014
Italian street artist MP5 added a little optical illusion with a street piece he completed in Abruzzo, Italy for the Visione Periferica Street Art Festival. The piece, titled Root of Evil, is quite eye-catching with the thick black and white composition. But it is the fact that it bleeds onto the sidewalk below that really creates an interesting illusion.
