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.

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.

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

Thierry Mugler fashion sketches for Grand Show at Friedrichstadt-Palast Berlin

show-gallery-sketches13

The Grand Show “WYLD” at Friedrichstadt-Palast Berlin was directed by Manfred Thierry Mugler – the scriptwriter, stage director, photographer and perfumer. He is also responsible for the creation of all costumes, and co-wrote the script with Roland Welke. This larger-than-life show was a cosmic love story: he is a young BMX rider who has his feet firmly planted on the ground, she is a fierce woman living at the top of the Berlin TV tower with her head in the clouds. This is the story of how two souls separated by an infinite distance, finally meet.

 

Thierry Mugler:

THE WYLD includes all Berlin’s positive vibrations: energy, modernity, timelessness and culture. These are the feelings that I wanted to share through my show, and I wanted it to be spectacular. The Palast is the only place where such a concept could take place, the only venue that could host such a project. The largest stage in the world for an other-worldly show.”fsp_the_wyld_aliens

The most expressive Ukrainian constructivist

10kartinaConstructivism is the artistic movement based on principles of functionalism and favoring mostly simple geometric forms. In painting, constructivism uses abstract combinations of lines, objects, and colored planes.

Vasyl Yermilov has been dubbed the ’Ukrainian Picasso’. In 1910th he studied at the School for Applied Art in Kharkiv and was a member of several art-groups. Under Soviet rule Yermilov designed posters, ‘agit-trains,’ street decorations, billboards, the interiors of public buildings. Yermilov’s synthesis of formalist esthetics, folk designs, and traditional painting methods (including egg tempera) was an important contribution to the development of Ukrainian design of the 1920s. His distinctive style of constructivist collage and typographic design, called constructive-dynamism or spiralism.dekorativnaya_kompoziciya__1920-e_gg._bumaga._guashВасиль Єрмилов.

Because of his formalist interests Yermilov was forced out of the Soviet art arena from 1930s till 1950s.

In the last years of his life he taught at the Kharkiv Industrial Design Institute (1963–7).ermilov8Натюрморт із кактусом і цвяхами. 1963

Glory came to him after his death – to the Constructivist, the forerunner of pop art and conceptualism. In 1989 Yermylov’s constructivist composition a “Gorki. 21. I. 1924” was prised 120 000 pounds at Sotheby’s.
