Mesmerizing images of Michele Durazzi coalesce architecture, minimalism of photography and surrealism of cityscapes. The Florence – based artist created this project “What is metaphysics” after the idea of a philosophical work by Martin Heidegger. The zoom-in geometry, 3D images, surreal minimalism and architecture are about to showcase blurring borders between the fantasy and reality. The concept of minimalism is cleverly captured the by base of white and blue colors. There are numerous elements that sustain the fairy-tale like cityscape merging with the nature : a vortex in the public square, clad elevation accompanied with the water reflection, a circular swimming pool seen from aerial view and many more. Just take a look!
There are numerous experimental andinnovative approaches in which fashion is presented through unconventional wayseither by recycled wood designs, traditional craftsmanship of the beadingskulls on the red sole heel, mesmerized jewellery with butterfly wings or evenby crafted Vogue covers as many more examples difficult to enumerate in one. Nevertheless,there is also an opposite direction of the fashion message with the use oftypical fabrics like denim for alternative purpose than jeans apparels. Ian Berry, known as Denimu is a Britishartist based in Sweden who uses denim fabrics for hisartistic work composing imaginative pictures of denim icons, portraits, cityscapesand many more.
Everything started from thechildhood memories accidentally reborn in one of the charity shops whileobserving a pile of cast off jeans. Ian completely amazed about the structure, fadedbeauty of the denim fabrics and their sea of shades decided to transform itinto the striking idea of denim images. That is how the concept of denimpictures was initialized. This is a captivating way of expression to evokeforgotten memories, the ability to materialize the thoughts and renewtraditional conventions. Denim always played an important role for Ian being fascinated by its richheritage and significance in the society. Becoming Denimu, he found his ownlanguage in which he could fluently present his artistic inspirations.
