Photography: Breath of the Dolomites Series

The Italian Dolomites are a range of mountains located in the Northeaster of Italy. Part of the UNESCO World Heritage, it's a beautiful series of mountains to capture. We are following the work of San Francisco-based photographer Michael Shainblum and his photographic voyage to the Dolomites. You gotta love how sharp are his pictures and the whole atmosphere it creates almost makes you feel the tone of the colours. Michael Shainblum is a filmmaker, photographer and timelapse artist based in San Francisco, California. You should definitely check out his Behance, lots of stunning projects. We'll do another feature about his insane timelapses! A collection of landscape photography taken in the Italian Dolomites.

Beautiful Italy Black and White Photography

Beautiful Italy Black and White Photography

There are some awesome scenes in Italy in the latest season of 'Master of None'. Here in Brazil, there are tons of Italian immigrants and we get to see a lot of their culture, so Italy has always been a country Brazilians really enjoy. Most definitely it is one of those countries I will definitely visit when I get the chance. I'll probably visit vineyards, eat pasta and ride a scooter. Yeah, yeah, all the clichê stuff, but that's awesome nonetheless. Check out some awesome black and white pictures of beautiful Italia! Don't forget to click the pictures to visit more of each photographers' portfolios! Cheers. ;)

Expressive Paintings of Raffaele Catania

Raffaele Catania is a craftsman and designer living in Chiaramonte Gulfi, Sicily. He likes to create, drawings, sketches and paintings, literally getting his hands dirty. He as done work for a variety of products, from small illustration of a book to an extensive mural painting, a detailed wine label to the preparation of a large stand. We were really impressed with Raffaele work, especially the paintings, very expressive, so nothing better than share that with you too. For more information about Raffaele's work visit his Web site at http://www.raffaelecatania.it/ I work very carefully to the different phases of the project, the initial study to completion, through production. I have great attention to detail, I prefer the simplicity, clean lines and a palette full of colors ... many colors. I love the art of cinema and I enjoy writing and directing short films and documentaries, are an unusual filmmaker and jovial, but that's another story ... Ah ... I really love pizza and some spare time I play tennis, losing almost always :)

Unreal Work of Nicola Verlato

Nicola Verlato is an artist from Verona Italy who now lives in New York. His work is full of movement and contrast sometimes it reminds me classic paintings. However what really facinates me is that he uses the new media for his work, getting visual inspiration and references from video games and using 3D software as well. He has exhibited in galleries and museums around the world with exhibitions at Byblos Art Gallery, Verona, Italy, 2nd Prague Biennal, Prague, Czech Republic, White Columns, New York, Hof & Huyser Gallery, Amsterdam, Netherlands, British Institute, Rome, Italy, Contemporary Art Museum, Monfalcone, Italy, Tirana Biennal,Tirana, Albania, Contemporary Art Pavillion, Milan, Italy. Nicola Verlato attempts to realize the “unreal” in his use of mythical references. Utilizing witches to explore the depths of sexuality, mysticism and power, the paintings are composed as conceptual cinematic storyboards and tell a story from multiple points of view. Invoking, at times, sexually explicit subject matter, the artist, who looks to a wide range of popular culture sources for visual inspiration including high-tech “first-person shooter” video gaming, renders a seemingly post-apocalyptic view of American society. - Saatchi Gallery For more information and works visit Nicola's website, there are a lot of images of his paintings, simply fantastic. The Death of James Dean ( from a drawing by Andy Wahrol) Beauty of Failure Beauty of Failure II Gator Mud, -Yes, absolutely! I don’t care about reality itself; I’m interested in the way we perceive it and manipulate it through models and representations - Nicola Verlato Interview for ArtPulse Still The Gift Cinderella Fiftycent The Deep Religiosity of Capitalism Young composers today, especially in America, are trying to combine the language of pop music in the complex structures of high music. This is what I’m trying to do in my paintings, as well as what other painters are doing in this country. - Nicola Verlato Interview for ArtPulse The Best For You Is Absolutely Unattainable: Not Being Born, Not Being, Not Being Anything Still Fighting The Stairway To Heaven The End of the Illusions The Garden Thanks to 3D software and the entertainment market, we are getting back to an aesthetic-cognitive path of representations and models. When a video game is successful, it’s able to spread a specific vision of the world. For example, the way a leaf is designed is determined by the software used: that software can set an aesthetic standard, changing the way I paint a leaf. In the same way, when Piero della Francesca painted a leaf or, let’s say, a mountain, he was sharing a vision of the world supported by the cultural system in which he was living and working. In short, video games are producing new aesthetic standards and models, and I’m interested in these standards. - Nicola Verlato Interview for ArtPulse Hey Joe Not for Everyone Stadium Arcadium Check out the full interview with Nicola Verlato for ArtPlus Magazine: A Vision of the World - Interview with Nicola Verlato
