Talented guys from Timelab Pro broke our heart again (previously) with a new drone scenery of the city we love and live in - Saint Petersburg. For sure, White Nights season 2018 (late June - mid July, yes, sun does not roll down literally) was the best with the enormous weather, millions of tourists and FIFA fans, festivals, open-airs, restaurant streets, Crimson Sails Proms and magnificent city that took a heart of each person being here, even living for ages like us.
UPDATE: Maldives authorities are destroying it now (Sep, 2018)
The Coralarium is a 200-ton tidal building filled with sculptures, creating a partially submerged gallery in the Maldives.
British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor has once again left his mark on the environment with a stunning new installation. Created for the Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi, Coralarium is a semi-submerged art gallery filled with nearly 30 sculptures that will act as a habitat for coral and other marine species (via MyModernMet)
The Sculpture Coralarium is situated in the centre of the largest developed coral lagoon in the Maldives, on the island resort of Fairmont Sirru Fen Fushi. The artwork by Jason deCaires Taylor is a semi-submerged tidal gallery space that exhibits a series of sculptural artworks on the skyline, inter-tidal waterline and seabed. As world's first semi submerged tidal Art Gallery it is cube shaped, six metres tall, with its front façade submerged up to median tide of three metres. The design of the walls is based on natural coral structures and is porous to allow the tides, current and marine life to pass through and the structure to “breathe” within its location
We are creating a New Visual Culture. We are the future.
We are the creators of a new visual culture. We are the future.
The mural «Д ¥ Ā Л И З М» (Dualism) has appeared on the inner wall of the WYNWOOD design hotel at the very heart of St. Petersburg. The artist’s lecture will take a place there on August 2, 2018.
Lampas’s work «Д ¥ Ā Л И З М» is a Manifesto, dedicated to the duality of the perception of contemporary art. Its text in two languages, helping the viewer to explore both differences between alphabets and cultural references in the forms of letters, and combining them into the context of calligraphy of the future. Dualism also reflects in the choice of color: the left part of the work is closer to the original range of the facade, while the right part is more contrast. Together they form the complete picture. The text itself is a Manifesto of Millennials with the values of past generations, made by borrowing the forms of letters from western and eastern, ancient and modern calligraphy. «Д ¥ Ā Л И З М» is the largest mural by Pokras Lampas in St.Petersburg — it covers an area of more than 250 square meters.
One of the most brightest representatives of contemporary calligraphy, the founder of a new artistic movement — Calligrafuturism – Pokras Lampas combines work on art projects around the world with exhibitions, street art performances and festivals. He creates large-scale compositions in the urban environment and interior, constantly experimenting with the forms and possibilities of fonts. In recent years Pokras Lampas was a member of the street art
projects, solo and group exhibitions in Russia, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, China, South Korea and UAE, and among his clients you can find brands such as: Lamborghini, FENDI, Dries van Noten, Nike, Pirelli, Yves Saint Laurent and AlfaBank
Saint-Petersburg-based designer Yaroslav Misonzhnikov shares his recent work - nixie-tube clocks on marble and wood platforms commissioned by Past Indicator brand.
All of their clocks have nixie tubes, that were popular in the USSR era. While working on the new design of the clock, Yaroslav was inspired by an architectural element — diamond-pointed rustication. The clock, that was named Saturn-5 is made of natural marble and is serially manufactured.

The Earth was designed as per the Theory of Pluralism: Pluriverse.
The end results of the design are controversial.
It may well be that humanity has never witnessed and starred in such rapid transformation, development and progress in all its history. The struggle against nature has evolved into a fight against oneself and with each other. The questions, the inquiries and the issues have transformed.
Now we talk about totally different things. Not just only about technology, industry 4.0, artificial intelligence, new professions or new planets... But about our extinguishing free will. And in fact, about whether we even ever had free will. About reality and new realities. In the end, everything is data. And it is possible to calculate the process of smart data.
Pluriverse is a story that observes innovations throughout the history of humans. The character of the story delivers this process in a cause and effect situation. And eventually, questions reality as a non-human entity.
Completed in 28 days, Pluriverse was displayed during the opening of Technology Summit and
the 6 minute story was told using real time motion capture technology.

BONET is a tribute made by "The 21 Night" studio (Santiago Restrepo Arias) to the Catalan architect Antonio Bonet. Author of a vast work, which tweaks with his genius the geography of Spain and Latin America, which remains a great unknown. Six fragments that project the kaleidoscope of Catalan rationalism, gather and modernise the legacy of architect. It is also a recovery of the dialogue between architecture and light. Between stone and soul. A colourful tribute to the splendour of his work

Matthew Stone is an artist and shaman. These two interconnected roles are defined by his activities as painter, photographer, sculptor, performance artist, writer, Optimist and cultural provocateur.
Stone’s most recent body of work demonstrates an innate enthusiasm for the development of painting within the framework of art history. The new works, use 3d modelling software and paint to break with the history of painting on a flat surface, lifting the strokes into a virtual and free space. The addition of shadows and foreshortening creates an illusionistic - trompe l’oeil sense of depth and perspective within the canvases. He organises and examines complex statements in regard to the relationship between painting, photography & computer generated imagery disrupting the holy status of painting as the ‘cosmic flesh’ of art history whilst simultaneously pushing the visceral experience of paint forward. The series offers a new technical approach to traditional painting, showing diverse bodies at play and in conflict.

Mikhail Batrak is a Ukrainian artist whose work examines the relationship between perception, Surrealism and empiricism. His creative process involves taking photographs with a digital camera and manipulating the results using computer software, combining disparate elements to create unexpected hybrid images. Drawing on techniques such as photomontage, digital drawing and collage, he updates the tropes of Surrealism for the digital age, utilising the visual language and style of the movement to pursue his own vision.
Lukas Bruhn is a 24 year old art director from Germany. His focus is in advertising, but he has created “Lorem de Loop” as a way to challenge himself with new design concepts by experimenting with different softwares, including Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Cinema 4D.
As an art director in advertising, Bruhn’s job is focused on strategic concepting, which often leaves him with little time for developing the actual craft related to the industry. So in early spring 2017, Lukas decided to continue honing his skills with this artistic venture, where he would create a poster every day for one year.
“‘Lorem de Loop’ helps me to expand my horizon in design. It keeps my mind fresh at working with intricate programs, while giving me the opportunity to try out new software.”
The 24 year old art director uses Instagram to publish his work. “This gives me a lot of pressure to actually complete a poster each day!” says Lukas Bruhn.
Next week, he wants to give away posters to three lucky followers. So follow him, cross your fingers and stay tuned!
Camille Walala (previously) has transformed Greenwich Peninsula’s Now Gallery into a colour labyrinth of wonder. Walala X Play opened through 24 September and her zigzag paths, winding walls of different heights, hanging shapes, and mirrored panels are all decorated with Camille’s signature geometric patterns and brash colours.
The installation is also a puzzle, taking the form of a 3D “spot the difference” in which visitors are encouraged to seek out anomalies in the pattern, with new differences being introduced once a month during the installation’s run until September.
The print designer and artist was selected as Now Gallery’s 2017 Design Collaborator and the piece forms part of the gallery’s summer programme.
