A photographer originally from France, but settled in Murcia, she just loves travelling. Thanks to that she has learnt and I go on learning - to realize what differentiates each culture, the details of every landscape, the way creativity opens up your mind. As she journeys she analyze all the different components of advertising, how images are used, how brands and values can be projected. And that’ s why photography is to advertising what the eye of the beholder is to the mirror: inseparable.

Da Vinci Leonardo’s life and work - the definitive edition

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) possessed one of the greatest minds of all time; his importance and influence are inestimable. This XXLformat comprehensive survey is the most complete book ever made on the subject of this Italian painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, scientist and all-around genius. With huge, full-bleed details of Leonardo’s masterworks, this highly original publication allows the reader to inspect the subtlest facets of his brushstrokes. * Part I explores Leonardo’s life and work in ten chapters, drawing upon his letters, contracts, diary entries, and writings. All of his paintings are presented and interpreted in depth, with The Annunciation and The Last Supper featured on large doublespreads. * Part II comprises a catalogue raisonné of Leonardo’s paintings, which covers all of his surviving and lost painted works and includes texts describing their states of preservation. Each and every painting that can be justifiably attributed to 0 1 2

|

Leonardo is included here; thanks to new findings and scientific research, this is the first time his definitive painting oeuvre is being published. * Part III contains an extensive catalogue of his drawings (numbering in the thousands, they cannot all be reproduced in one book); 663 are presented, arranged by category (architecture, technical, anatomical, figures, proportion, cartography, etc). Over half of the drawings included were provided by Windsor Castle, marking the first time that the Castle has allowed a publisher to reproduce so many of their drawings. This new edition discusses the most recent findings of Leonardo scholarship and debates controversial new attributions. It also contains new images showing the spectacular restoration of Leonardo’s Virgin of the Rocks in the National Gallery, London, his Virgin and Child with St Anne, in the Louvre, Paris, and the Mona Lisa in the Prado, Madrid. taschen.com

n his work, German artist, Carsten Nicolai, born 1965 in karlmarx-stadt, seeks to overcome a separation of art forms and genres for an integrated artistic approach. influenced by scientific reference systems, nicolai often engages mathematic and cybernetic patterns such as grids and codes, as well as error, random and self-organising structures. Nicolai has inaugurated his audiovisual installation titled Unidisplay at HangarBicocca in Milan. The 40-meter long piece has the ability to make sound perceptible on an optical level with minimal aesthetics translated into variations of black and white along with acoustics. There’s a propensity towards abstraction and the infinite in this installation, as well as play with the concepts of time and space. CarstenNicolai.de 0 1 8

Absolut Unique

bsolut Vodka introduces Absolut Unique – a limited edition of nearly four million uniquely designed and individually numbered bottles. To make every bottle become a one-of-a-kind work of art, Absolut had to re-engineer the entire production process. The colourful, vibrant bottles will be distributed worldwide. Everyone will find a design that catches their eye and becomes a truly personalised gift – or the perfect addition to a party or collection.

“Absolut Unique is a daring concept, even for a company as passionate about creativity as Absolut ” says Jonas Tåhlin, Vice President Global Marketing at The Absolut Company. “Anyone could do one or two unique products. We’re making close to four million.” For Absolut Unique, Absolut had to re-engineer its entire production line. It required a complex interaction of human and mechanical elements, and a carefully orchestrated randomness, to achieve the desired end result. Splash guns and colour-generating machines were set up and complex coating, pattern and placement algorithms were programmed in to ensure that no two 0 20 00 7|

bottles would be alike. Thirty-eight different colours were used, and fiftyone pattern types were applied to the bottles. A striking look was achieved by colour contrasts and a white, mat paper label that features each bottle’s unique number. The result was even better than anticipated. “Absolut Unique feels a bit ‘mad scientist,’ a bit street art,” says Jonas Tåhlin. “When the bottles first appeared on the conveyer belt, we cheered. By that point the production line looked more like an artist’s studio than a bottle factory. These are really striking bottles. Everyone will find a personal favourite.” “A lot of world-class creators have made their interpretations of our iconic bottle. But this time Absolut was the artist,” continues Tåhlin. “Our customers are all unique – so we wanted to give them each a one-of-a-kind bottle as individual as they are. We loved the concept. Making it happen was the hard part. Along the way we doubted whether this would be at all possible. Well, guess what? It is”. Absolut.com

awn Rozakis, friends call her D., is the president and chief designer here at Ghostlove. She began cultivating her crafting skills at a very young age, taking various painting, drawing and ceramics classes to amuse herself. She was always making something... or breaking something to create something new. In college, D. majored in graphic design and took several studio courses where her fine art skills flourished. She always found her greatest muse in the darker side of art and composition. Anything creepy or macabre was somehow beautiful, romantic and lovely. At that time, D. also began designing jewelry and clothing. This was mostly for fun or to give as gifts to friends, but it was still something that gave her a great sense of accomplishment. People would often stop her and ask, “Where did you buy that?” and she would proudly respond, “I made it!”

After many years of working stressful and physically exhausting retail jobs, she found herself wanting a more rewarding career. She dreamt of starting her own company where she could be creative every day and get paid doing it. In 2008, D. partnered with her longtime friend and beau, Ghost, to help make this dream a reality. Ghostlove, Inc. was officially established in April of 2008. D’s vision for the company was to use her talent and fine art aesthetic to create affordable wares for the modern Gothic wardrobe, infusing elements of Classic Lolita, Steampunk, Couture Noir, and Victoriana... all with artful taste and stunning presentation. Today, D. has sold over 1,800 pieces of jewelry in her initial etsy shop, launched the official Ghostlove website and continues to grow a loyal customer following all over the world. Ghostlove.com

tailoring makes a “Manish Bansal ensemble” a valued addition to a man’s wardrobe that exudes style and elegance. “It’s inspired by the GameKeeper’s duty as a protector/nurturer to the killer/destructor. It draws parallels from this role with the way the British Raj ruled the Indian subcontinent.” Felting is the main technique used in this collection, which works on the philosophy of protection and destruction. The base fabric, which has been sourced from the British Isle, poses as the protective layer and the destruction of Indian Silks and velvets complete the felting process. Felting is a technique that gives you everything except a perfect outcome, which contrasts with the fine Tailoring, which again reinforces the symbolism and concept behind the collection.

CATHERINE PARR

SATELLITE ~ Please give us a brief bio, where you are from and how you started in this field? CATHERINE PARR - I am originally from the UK. If we are talking about my watercolours, then I started not too long ago, because initially I thought it would be fun.

When did you first discover your creative talents? I started painting when I was about 6 - I was first taught by my grandfather. Could you tell us about some of your work?

Watercolours are often described as traditional and quite difficult, which at first inspired me to experiment with them. For now, a huge part of my work has been icons from different eras and strong, inspirational faces. Ultimately I aspire to paint in a unique way, what at first glance appears pretty and attractive, I hope will be viewed differently over time.... What inspires you to keep going and how do you keep yourself motivated? There is an excitement and a certain euphoria when you unexpectedly end up somewhere else in a painting something you haven’t planned and

ony Music has unveiled a graphic installation documenting the company’s 125 year musical history. Designed by Alex Fowkes, winner of Creative Review’s “One to Watch” in 2011, the Sony Music Timeline runs throughout the central atrium of Sony’s open plan Derry Street offices. The Installation features nearly 1000 names of artists signed to Sony Music and its affiliated labels from the foundation of Columbia Records in 1887 to the present day, including musical icons Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Janis Joplin, The Clash, Michael Jackson and many many more. Interspersed among the artist names are certain key developments in technology, musical formats and corporate history - from the invention of early recording cylinders to vinyl, cassette, CD, radio, MTV, the Sony Walkman, the iPod and the introduction of digital streaming services. The work is organised by decade into 54 columns measuring over 2 meters tall and covering almost 150 square meters of wall space. It uses CNC cut vinyl as the sole medium for the whole installation. Emma Pike, VP Industry Relations, who commissioned the piece said, “The brief was to bring the inspiration of our music into the heart of our building and make our office space live and breathe our incredible musical legacy. Alex’s beautiful graphics and illustrations do exactly that.” Sony’s partnership with Fowkes is set to continue as the Sony Music Timeline will grow each year with the addition of new artist names signed by the major.

SATELLITE ~ Please give us a brief bio, where you are from and how you started in this field? FRANCESCO LOCASTRO - I was born in Catania, Italy in 1976, grew up near Stuttgart, Germany and then moved to Florida in 1993. As long as I can remember, I’ve found much solace in the aesthetic dimension and could sit and scribble for hours on end. The proactive arrangement of color and shape has been my ever-increasing concern ever since. Growing up, life’s opportunities tended to always gear in the direction of an artful life; from early recognition of skill to studies and apprenticeships, followed by business ventures and the ability to stay creative and unbound through it all. When did you first discover your creative talents? When I was 4 or 5, my uncle, Londonbased artist Francesco Jacobello, first noticed my sketches and pointed them out to my parents. It seems to have been the moment of discovery for me. Could you tell us about some of your work? 0 3 6

In the realm of intersecting ideas, lies the opportunity of transformative change. Constant grappling with the concept of individual identity, in frequently stark contrast with a vastly influential and unstoppable societal flux, has always been at the core of my artistic quest. Within the creative, exploratory process, I am a painter at heart. Though I make use of a variety of media and techniques, the painter’s perception is always at the root of my visual sensibility, use of color, compositional and technical decisions. I strive to create a common visual language that embraces the diversity of the human experience while celebrating its unshakable foundation within a transcendent core that forms the equalizing moral truth of civilization. By exploring the potential flash points where differing social and cultural identities intersect, create ideological friction, then shift and are able to splinter into myriads of new possibilities, I invite the viewer to open up to discourse, to make a conscious effort, free of prior conditioning, and to elevate appreciation of diversity from

mere tolerance to identification and understanding of self and others.

people together, regardless of race, culture and creed.

My recent work explores the reinterpretation of human identity within the increasingly overlapping fields of biology and technology and the countless scenarios outlined in writings on Technological Singularity and The Accelerated Change Thesis, predicting a near future period of rapid technological change, bringing about an era that could transform the concepts that we rely on to give meaning to our lives, from our models of industry to the cycle of human life, including Death itself.

Any influences or anyone you look up to when it comes to painting?

My geometric paintings are a glimpse into the future. They inhabit that blurring, rapidly evolving realm between biology and technology affirming the further development of an ultimately natural destiny. Hopefully, they’re also really fun to look at and get lost in. What inspires you to keep going and how do you keep yourself motivated? I generally get up with a strong intent to be productive. Creative thought and ideas are opportunities; challenging me to add another facet to my visual catalogue. The nagging thought of letting certain opportunities go unchallenged by far outweighs any further need for motivation.

I’ll avoid listing names here as there are too many to mention and don’t necessarily include celebrities. Having lived in different parts of the world, my influences have always been diverse and ever changing. I enjoy delving into new experiences and finding inspiration in unexpected moments and among people who intrigue me. I despise routines and, even though they sometimes can’t be avoided, I try to keep them at a minimum. My life and art certainly share the constant need to explore uncharted territory. How do you bridge the gap of the business side of art? I try not to think of there being a gap in the first place and in the spirit of creative growth and community, Art and business can form a miraculous symbiosis. If your work attracts interest, chances are that business will find you. It can’t be avoided.

What is your approach to design?

Creativity thrives when it is given a chance to make an impact in the public forum. It needs to be consumed and digested, chopped up and regurgitated by society, the fertile ground from which all ideas are validated and are given a chance to soar. Nonetheless, money should not be the sole motivation or else it will corrupt any project. Though a necessary arbiter, offered as the lonely carrot, it rarely yields the best results.

My definition of design is a very broad one. Some people draw clear distinctions between art and design; but to me, both evoke similar feelings and can inhabit the same realm of sublimity. Design is ubiquitous and all pervasive. It is a sacred door to the language of the heart of man; a language that speaks to and is perceived by all of us in some way. In the creative process, I do my part to help decode that language and access a common ground that can bring

I gravitate towards highly specialized people who share the same values when it comes to passion for an idea and work ethic. I especially enjoy working with folks from different disciplines and fields of industry. When you put your heads together you quickly find overlap. That’s generally a good starting point. We find common ground, identify our goals and help each other in creating something that we all have a stake in, yet couldn’t have accomplished on our

artist’s work represents the ultimate catalyst for the evolution of civilization. It is a mysteriously winding and hard road traveled, but its confines stretch out through the entirety of the Universe. Its treasures, unearthed and distilled by the artist, have the potential to manifest our wildest dreams and brightest futures.

Olympic horses

Richard Sweeney was born in Huddersfield, England in 1984. He discovered a natural talent for sculpture at Batley School of Art and Design in 2002, which led him to the study of Three Dimensional Design at the Manchester Metropolitan University, where he concentrated on the hands-on manipulation of paper to create design models, which ultimately developed into sculptural pieces in their own right. The Olympic Horses were created using scored and folded paper over a wooden armature. They were commissioned for display in the nave of Lincoln Cathedral during the 2012 Lincoln flower festival: Dreams of Gold. RichardSweeney.co.uk

PUSH

P

ush who heralds from Los Angeles has been doing his art across all-terrain, for the past seventeen years. He has traveled to Japan, Italy, Australia, Spain, Taiwan, Korea and across the United States to make and show work. Push’s designbased practice has enabled him to slip into such roles as a designer for The Seventh Letter, as well as enabling him to branch into ceramic sculpture. For the past year, Push has been meticulously creating this body of work on canvas, wood panel and paper, the latter being a new medium for the artist. Triangular grids filled with bold and vibrant colors are chaotically aligned with muted and monochromatic splashes, creating stunning contrasts. The artist’s disciplined handwork gradually builds a geometric patchwork. The process is incredibly painstaking and requires patience, not only on 1 0 8

|

the artist’s part, but also for his fans that have been anticipating this solo exhibition since his last show at Known Gallery in 2010. The result is a body of complex paintings, bustling with energy while simultaneously offering serenity. PUSH explains “The focus is on progression. It’s what keeps me going.” With roots in the Los Angeles graffiti scene, PUSH is a highly sought after muralist and designer. His outdoor work has evolved into large-scale murals, painting on buildings, creative workspaces and the famous wall he collaborated on with the legendary Lee Quinones for the Art in the Streets exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.
