Awesome Artwork at United Loneliness by multi-talented Andras Bartos

One of my favourite pop-art artists is the talented and creative Berlin-based Andras Bartos. He also works as an art and set director for  theatre, TV and Movies in Germany, Hungary and France. And he creates fantasticly and oddly cute sculptures too! In 2006 he opened a shop United Loneliness in Scheunenviertel in Berlin,  where you can buy canvas prints, cards and originals of his work.

Check out his work at his [official website] or the [webshop] for United Loneliness store where you can buy some of his canvas prints. In the real shop i Berlin they carry a much bigger assortment. The shop is located on Oranienburger Strasse 27 in the Scheunenviertel in Berlin Mitte. S-bahn stop S-Bahn Oranienburger Str. It’s definitely worth checking out if you’re in Berlin.

Black Swan Goes Retro

Fantastic   illustrated posters for the 2010 movie Blackswan. The artwork is by British Design studio LaBoca. I very much prefer those to the original poster.

 

Retro Japanese Graphic Design Art

I saw those two japanese retro poster graphic art a while ago over at Pink Tentacle and fell in love. The first one is a Reijiin sheet music cover from 1930 and the second one is a poster by Shujiro Shimomura from 1928. Click on the link above for more example of Japanese poster art from the 1920s and 1930s

Alexander McQueen Exhibition in Hamburg

The incredible talented Alexander McQueen (who tracigally decided to end his own life in 2010 at age 40), was and still is one of the most influential british fashion designers in history. Now you can see many of his creations that he made for  his own label as well as for Givenchy, at the Museum für Kunst and Gewerbe in Hamburg, Germany.

Tomorrow I’ll go to Hamburg for an 8 day vacation, and this will be one of my first stops! Alexander McQueen is one of my favourite designers. I love the rebellious streak he often showcased in his designs.

The exhibition ends September 2.
