Lorenzo Belenguer Interview

Lorenzo Belenguer Interview

Lorenzo Belenguer was born in Valencia, studied economics then spent time travelling before finally settling on London as a home and the place that would nurture his creativity.  Lorenzo is an artist who creates art from found objects, he finds beauty in items that are often overlooked and normally so far removed from art or attractivity.  Lorenzo also produces minimalistic portraits, depicting his models with as few lines as possible focusing on the gaze and emotion in an uncontrolled manner.  Fresh and timeless art that incorporates ideas with passion.  Not afraid to tackle society issues but in a non judgemental way Lorenzo produced the Cocaine Series which started as a concern for a situation that he believed to be  damaging to societies in all parts of the globe.  Lorenzo’s preoccupation is about the children and families that are unable to carry on normal lives because they live in areas where the drug is being trafficked.  His motivation is to change the way issues are dealt with as the total ban of drugs is not working he wants an alternative way of dealing with it. The Cocaine Series is a way to raise awareness and to open up the debate that no one wants to talk about.  Lorenzo is an interesting man, an art writer, a curator and an experimental artist, he has produced prints of masterpieces by Constable, Whistler, Murillo and other painters of Pastoral scenes that exploit rural nostalgia where he deconstructs and reconstructs images by interrupting the tricks that the artist uses with the imposition of bits of metal and oils on key figures of the painting. Unique and thought-provoking Lorenzo is an artist that refuses normality and demands attention. He has exhibited in a group show at the Tate London, widely across the UK and worldwide.  He is an artist to follow, an artist that is constantly discovering and depicting his love of life, of culture and society into work that is timeless.  (more…)

Sebastian Boesmi Interview

Gateway to the inner Universe by Javier Melian (@jmelianuk)

When you talk to someone, often you do not remember everything they said, you don’t remember all the words, but rather how that person made you feel. Same happens with an image, when it doesn´t matter which material or how it is made, it makes you feel something, when there is a breath of truth in it, when there is something unique, essential and beautiful, it is when you remember it; This also goes for people, gardens, dogs, everyday objects, with all that complements us and the range of objects that we choose to live with.” – Sebastian Boesmi

I experienced the meaning of this beautiful statement the first time I saw an image from Sebastian Boesmi, which was in fact, in a coffee machine.  Boesmi’s trademark patterns and colour schemes adorned the image of a top of the range, coveted espresso machine; a prototype design he was invited to create by a very prestigious global brand.
