Apartment in São Paulo by Felipe Hess

Citing Yatzer: "Paying respect to the original design of a beautiful construction and adding contemporary touches through the use of metal and concrete, 30 year old Brazilian architect Felipe Hess, together with Pia Quagliato, a collaborator in his firm, breathed new life to this 400 m² apartment in São Tomás in São Paulo, Brazil, designed by Bauhaus architect Franz Heep."

Body Manipulations by Monica Piloni

While reviewing the sculptural works of Monica Piloni first thing to spark in my visual mind was the old digital works of Dmitry Daniloff made for Sony PSP. But let's not concentrate on the things I found similar. The sculptures of Monica is something to think about for the fragile nature of our bodies.

The artwork also carries certain morbidity, mixed with slight clichs from the erotic iconography, including many symbols and a miscellany of styles carried by our subconsciousness. These styles and symbols are what we ultimately give back to the environment either in a concrete existence or abstract essence.

Floral Portraits by Marcelo Monreal

Faces [UN]bonded - A surreal and impressive series, signed by the talented Brazilian artist Marcelo Monreal (Instagram, Facebook).

”Faces I always drew attention. And if i stressing? If the let loose from the rest of the body, which would be within? Well, to me, still I think that people have a little bit of beauty within them by more that this is saved and only revealed in rare moments. The result of this reflection gave rise to this series called: Faces [UN]bonded.” – Marcelo Monreal

Giants by Os Gemeos

Brazilian graffiti artists Os Gemeos turns six multi-story silos on Granville Island into their trademark ‘Giants.’ The murals on the 70-foot towers are now the largest paintings ever attempted by the pair, an astounding feat considering Os Gemeos completely donated a month of their time to create the non-profit art project. An Indiegogo fundraising campaign to recoup costs associated with painting the silos has been extremely successful.
