Nas fotos, os peixes de Ryusuke Fukahori são bonitos, mas se você puder ver um de seus aquários ao vivo poderá tomar um susto ou ficar de queixo caído. Perceberá que não são peixes de verdade, mas pinturas fascinantes que ganham vida pelas mãos deste extraordinário artista japonês. © Ryusuke Fukahori (foto de Dominic Alves). Três períodos foram de grande importância na vida de Fukahori: 1973, quando veio ao mundo, na província japonesa de Aichi; 1995, quando se graduou pela Aichi Prefectual University of Fine Arts and Music; e, finalmente, 2000, quando, ao passar por uma crise sobre sua visão artística, buscou inspiração no que seria a fonte de grande inspiração: o peixinho dourado que possuía há mais de 7 anos. Desde então, tornaram-se inseparáveis na vida e no trabalho.

02.07.13 — By Jill Singer To say Irving Harper once worked in the office of George Nelson is kind of like saying Hillary Clinton once worked in the office of Barack Obama — Harper’s contributions were almost too many to count. He worked under Nelson for 17 years and was responsible for some of the studio’s — and design history’s — most famous works, including the Marshmallow sofa and Herman Miller’s still-current logo. Rizzoli recently published a book on Harper, but it wasn’t to set the record straight about who did what (there’s long been controversy over Nelson receiving credit for things that were actually authored by Harper.) No, the book, Irving Harper: Works in Paper , reveals Harper’s even more secret life: the intricate paper sculptures he began constructing in his Westchester County home way back in 1963 and which he continued to make until about 10 years ago, when, he says, he ran out of room to display them.

When Moebius (aka French comic artist Jean Giraud) passed away in March, fans mourned the loss of his voice--er, pen--which had been so influential in sci-fi visual culture. Filmmaker Ridley Scott summed Giraud’s influence nicely last year: “You see it everywhere, it runs through so much you can’t get away from it.” But many more were completely unaware of Moebius, whose works remain largely in French, despite his work on films like The Fifth Element and Tron (to say nothing of his own prolific bibliography).

A obra invulgar de Rauschenberg criou novos rumos na percepção da arte e da vida. O seu percurso singular combinou aspectos pouco relacionáveis, à partida, mas que resultaram numa “criação humana” sem paralelo. As suas “combines paintings” ligaram materiais, suportes e tipos de arte.
