The Advertising Agency Talent from São Paulo (Brazil) hired Jackson Alves to create two handmade posters for the Mexican beer SOL. One with chalk lettering and the other with sign painting, which was a great challenge because Ihe didn’t have sign painting experience. He sent the original pieces to the agency and their team added the beer bottle and finished the ad pieces and the great TV AD.
Sam Jinksis an Visual artist from Australia who is known for creating highly realistic sculptures. These sculptures made from resin, fiber glass and silicone are so detailed that its hard to tell them from the real thing. The artist gives great attention to detail and uses real hair for his sculptures. I especially liked the idea behind the man with blurred mouth, blurring thats typical to electronic media or digital imagery is mixed with something that very touchable and real.
The sculptures by Sam Jinks creates uneasiness due to sudden exposure to realities around us which we often tend to ignore. Sam began his career as a puppet maker on television before taking to fine art.
Anne-Karin Furunes(1961, lives and works in Trondheim, Norway), studied art in Oslo and Trondheim, as well as architecture in London and Copenhagen. After graduating in art and architecture, she decided to devote herself fully to art. She exhibits regularly in Europe, USA , Australia and Canada, participating with her works in the main international fairs.
In her paintings Anne-Karin Furunes uses archival photos of anonymous faces to investigate the personality and identity of the person, seeking in the faded photographs traces of forgotten lives and personalities, escaped from the register of the story. At the first fleeting glance what we see is a canvas covered with hundreds of perfect holes of different sizes. Only when taking distance from the surface of the canvas does a face appear, first only an allusion of the portrayed image, then gradually the more you move away from the canvas, the more the features and facial expressions are defined more clearly. At the end, the viewer recomposes the image for the brief duration of the meeting he has with it, the moment when that image becomes his face, his memory, his version of the reality.
