Brazil’s 1920s Art Deco Magazine “Para Todos”

Para todos 17De.1927Art Deco we associate with a particular period in history— jazz-age of the 20s—but also with particular locales: Paris, London, Vienna, New York. We probably do not think of Rio de Janeiro. Europeans know very little about art from “the colonies.” But Brazil had its own modern art movement, one that strove for a distinctly Brazilian sensibility. The movement announced itself in 1922, the centennial of the South American nation’s independence from Portugal.0998d9ff2c999129cb3cae164897a70b

1922 happened to be the year that a Rio de Janeiro-born artist, illustrator, and graphic designer who went by the name J. Carlos (José Carlos de Brito e Cunha) took over the direction of the magazine Para Todos. Founded in 1918, the magazine began as a film rag, and its covers faithfully featured photo spreads of movie stars. But in 1926, Carlos began drawing his own cover illustrations, and he continued to do so for the next four years, as well as drawing thousands of cartoons and writing vaudeville plays and samba lyrics.

J. Carlos was a prolific artist who “collaborated in design and illustration in all the major publications of Brazil from the 1920s until the 1950s.” In all, it’s estimated that he left behind over 100,000 illustrations.87dadfc58d606ba8a77a67a86f51248d

Guda Koster

Guda Koster

Guda Koster is a Dutch artist who creates living sculptures and performances, which the photographs are the results of. Koster’s works are created in parallels of time, space and textile.In her works Koster uses fabrics, colours and patterns that underline the codes and meanings our clothing conveys.

Гуда Костер
Guda Koster

The identity of the models with covered faces encrypts their relation to the environment — their costumes have either matched or contrasted with the surrounding with the interior in a series of colorful works. Pictures of Guda Koster are full of irony and mild criticism of the mystery that makes the viewer want to know more.

Discovery: Quinten Mestdagh

Quinten Mestdagh is the graduate of the Antwerp Academy. For his 2017 Graduating collection designer  was inspired by ripped up publicity panels in the Parisian subway and his “love and passion for fashion photography and imagery translated through a strong graphic identity.” The result was a playful and colourful collection.Quinten-Mestdagh

In his interview Quinten Mestdagh says, that the starting point for the collection was the concept that showed the power and strength of fashion photography and fashion imagery. The designer have been attracted to highly stylized and iconic fashion images in magazines and advertisements and they were the main inspiration for starting the collection.

At the Paris metro stations the advertisement posters was ripped off and seeing these ripped advertisements, Quinten create the idea of an act of aggression on a beautiful picture, a kind of disruption of an image.8-384x500

Quinten Mestdagh make collages and 3D paper compositions. Glossy pictures of women’s faces are disrupted by paper rips and shreds resembling the damaged advertisements, creating a tension and roughness in contrast to the beauty showcased in fashion photography.

The shapes of the Quinten Mestdagh clothing are clean and architectural. They had an elegance of mid-century couture gowns, but also a kind of static and strong feeling that worked really well with the impact of the prints.18881841_1390078014404910_7923432956211559860_n

The designer used trompe l’oeil effects by printing the paper collages on different fabrics. This way, it has the effect and lightness of paper but the fabrics have enough stiffness and structure to hold the shapes. He also worked with pleating in full skirts where the two pictures are fused together to recreate the feeling of rotating billboards.17BA_third-bachelors_atmosphere-013.jpg

Most of the women in the prints are fashion icons of the 50’s and 60’s like Penelope Tree. Quinten placed them next to contemporary models like Karen Elson to get the contrast between beauty ideals and tendencies from then and now. 1granary_antwerp_academy_quinten_mestdagh005-1273x1380
