Seven Samurai : How these picture can match the famous Akira Kurosawa omonimous movie? Watching them after a few years, I barely understand myself.
Seven Samurai (七人の侍 Shichinin no Samurai?) is a 1954 Japanese period adventure drama film co-written, edited, and directed by Akira Kurosawa. The film takes place in 1587 during the Warring States Period of Japan. It follows the story of a village of farmers that hire seven masterless samurai (ronin) to combat bandits who will return after the harvest to steal their crops. ===>Seven Samurai on wikipedia
Here there is the poster commissioned by a festival , In Korea. It was composed creating several 3d models, and combining them together . I believe it given an innovative image to the festival... At least, I think so, but it was very funny to make it! I Also included the first version of the poster.. for sure more "messy", in terms of graphic design, but much more expressive and close to the complexity of futurist art..
I'm from a country where people are indeed quite superstitious. Most of the time it is funny. Sometimes less. But whatever, I just found this old picture I made, so I'm happy to publish and share with the world. I think that it will bring me luck.
Growing older, I realized that sometimes the beliefs, legends, superstitions have some element of truth, and should be regarded with respect.
Are certainly arising from people ignorance, or rather they constitute what humans they are trying to explain, with the knowledge of their time, what they do not understand or do not know.
Some people are inquiring me on how to setup an immersive video installation in their gallery or their church, to fit my works, asking about magic 3d technology, or if I'm using olograms. Right now, at the end of 2012, 3d movies in movie theatre are quite popular, but people are forced to wear special glasses to fully appreciate the effect. To me, this solution doesn't fit for an artistic installation or a live event.
Please don't take me wrong. I love the look of Italian historical Cities. Is what foreign mostly love about my Country. It's just that as an artist, and designer, sometimes is a bit frustrating having to deal with historical building, historical venues, thinking about "harmony" with the surrounding environment. That's why, on this piece, I'm inviting my friend Godzilla to visit me in Florence. Unfortunately, in real life, I don't have his telephone number, so, I Guess, I will have to keep this as a fantasy.
A digital painting about a popular art exhibition in Grosseto (Tuscany, Italy, my city, or big town) Called "Primavera Maremmana), held by mostly "Sunday painters": artists that are not necessarily earning their living by their "Art", and they're not even trying to. What moves them, is mostly the passion for art, and for the beautiful landscapes that surround them.
A "grotesque" but debonaire "fresco" of an italian tradition (developed specially in small citys) : "LO STRUSCIO" (ispired by GROTZ artworks). It means that nearly everybody , young and old people goes taking a walk IN THE SAME ancien main street, everybody around the same time (late saturday afternoon, around 5-6 o' clock) , Usually hoping to meet someone... That means that is gonna be hard walking in that street for tourists! Since the paint is pretty large (135x170 cm) I published also a few pictures with details.
