Some weeks ago, if not months, we featured one of our favourite creative studios in the whole wide world; from Copenhagen, PutPut motivates us every day, they make us want to work and they surprise us every night when we go on Instagram, Facebook or MySpace. Just joking about MySpace. Today we feature them and show their work again, also filling this website with some of the best made and most beautiful still life examples you can find on the Internet; the “shoes” they’ve made for Bianco. All visual jewels here in PutPut Vol. II.
Australia again? No! We might be slightly obsessed with the antipodes and their creativity and, at the same time, distance may surround them in a sort of dreamy allure, but we’re also aware that, to begin with, Aussieland is the country with more horrendous animals in the world (spiders that could be dogs and stuff) and that, on the other side, we don’t need to travel that far to witness examples of visual talent.
Realmente Bravo (“Really bravo”) is Spanish product; a creative studio formed by Vik Autofocus and Paula Schmerz that shows how mixing daily objects, a lot of culture, a taste for colours, textures and composition, they can be at the same level as the big names in the Graphic Design industry. There’s Art in every corner and they know how to take advantage of that. Really, bravo!
A lot has been said since the organisation of the most important music festival in Spain (alongside with Sónar) revealed their new edition line-up last Wednesday. In La Monda, we could make a deep research of the names that this Primavera Sound 2015 is bringing; about what we think of them including bands sleepier than Diazepam or about highlight the sudden fear we feel when thinking about the fanatic phenomenon that the presence of Julian Casablancas can trigger, but music magazines are already doing that.
We’re going to focus on celebrating that tUnE-yArDs
is coming back to Spain with one of the best albums of 2014. In this last release (Nikki Nack, 2014), American Merrill Garbus ventures with all genres, from funk to folk, going through afro-pop and jazz; amazing display of colourful, poliritmic party. We can assure you that if this girl is already a blast in recording, just wait and watch her live; she’s an energy, good vibe and surprising hurricane. Who would say that Garbus, whose first album was self-recorded in recycled cassette tape, would end up in festivals like Primavera Sound and being a total reference name.
It might be the country with more super mortiferous animals on Earth, the whole centre part might be like the Moon. Yes, there are snakes with more poison than every teenager called Tiffany in every North-American high school and it’s not really a handy place to get to from, let’s say, humanity. But I’ve really thought about moving to Australia. Like, tomorrow. A country as efficient as Switzerland but full of surfers? Where do I need to sign?
The thing is that, apart from sporty guys designed by Michelangelo, they’ve got plenty of creative talent in Australia. Anna Pogossova, photographer and illustrator, could be a perfect example for this. She’s been already doing what years later became so fashionable; those plastic, pastel, surrealistic and nearly edible still lifes. Living in Sydney, her work is linked to the world of Fashion and she’s worked with magazines like Vogue, ELLE, Catalogue and Grazia amongst others. Her amazing eye for creation it’s enough to make us look at the antipodes.
