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

QisDesign – Innovative and Beautiful Lighting Design

Taiwanese lighting company QisDesign makes fantastic innovative lamps. Two of their latest lamps are Flamenca and Coral.  Flamenca (pic below) is inspired by “the breathtaking movement of Flamenco dancer’s ruffled skirt twirling around in the air”

I also love their table lamp Coral, which is inspired by sparkling water.

Both lamps uses LED technology. More info on QisDesign and their products [here]

That’s the idea behind TNT Belgium’s brilliantly executed live-commerical. It’s absolutely genius. Check it out below. Thanks to my dear friend malinaldi who brought this to my attention.
 

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.
