The new LEGO set dedicated to Nintendo

The new LEGO set dedicated to Nintendo

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Art

Are you a big fan of vintage video games? Do you remember the old Nintendo systems and the very first Super Mario games with nostalgia? LEGO comes to your aid with a brand new set dedicated to Nintendo and the Nintendo Entertainment System.

From August 1st, with 2,646 coloured bricks, you can build a very detailed reproduction of the NES system. In fact, in addition to the console, the set will include an opening slot for the Game Pak, a controller, a retro-style TV with a sliding screen that plays a level of the classic Super Mario Bros. and a multifunctional brick that can be connected to the TV and interact with enemies and obstacles.

With its vintage style and small size – the TV measures 22.5×23.5x16cm – the LEGO NES turns into a true collector’s item that can be displayed anywhere in the house. 

With the Nintendo Entertainment System, LEGO continues to produce sets designed primarily for adults, in this case helping them to take a step back in time, reminiscent of the video games they played when they were kids. 

Find out all the details of the set here and visit the site to find out about all the upcoming LEGO releases.

“Although we still can’t travel that freely because of the pandemic, maybe traveling through pixels is the best thing right now.”

Mateusz Napieralski, Polish illustrator, art director and animator is helping us to imagine some of his favorite destinations in his Airport Postcards. The lively illustrations are inspired by previous trips and he reflects on them as he sits in the airports, waiting for his return flight.

At a time when flights are still limited, Mateusz Napieralski with his pencil and his playful, bold and colorful shapes transports us to the cities he loves most.

From Oslo to Vancouver to Barcelona, the illustrator’s postcards will make you travel with your imagination.

A new playground dedicated to Kobe Bryant is born in Matera

A new playground dedicated to Kobe Bryant is born in Matera

Emanuele D'Angelo · 3 months ago · Art

In Basilicata, precisely in Matera, a new and colorful playground dedicated to the famous basketball player Kobe Bryant has just been realized.
Part of the larger project to restore the gardens and areas near the school, the new basketball court features the stylized figure of the American champion, who tragically died on January 26th due to a plane crash.

An immense void, that left by the sportsman, that the students have tried to fill with this work created thanks to Marica Montemurro, Gianni Papapietro and Luca Bia – members of #TeamArt, called to evoke on the surface of the field the drawings and ideas of the youngest.

An initiative born after the lockdown, the Istituto Comprensivo G. Pascoli of Matera, has totally redeveloped the Olimpia Playground Kobe Bryant basketball court: an open-air sports facility abandoned for years, taken away from degradation and finally returned to the community thanks to the collaboration between teachers, students, and artists of the area.

Floating MAiZE, the suspended plastic by Jean Shin

Floating MAiZE, the suspended plastic by Jean Shin

Giulia Pacciardi · 3 months ago · Art

It is called Floating MAiZE and is the latest installation by the American artist Jean Shin, inside the Winter Garden of Brookfield Place in New York.
The installation, which has more than 7,000 plastic bottles of Mountain Dew soda, is suspended in the atrium, and thanks to the lights coming in through the large windows create a particular play of colors.
Some of the bottles used in the installation come from Sure We Can, a non-profit recycling organization located in Brooklyn, a neighborhood where the artist lives.

The work, of immediate understanding, is a criticism of waste, of the immoderate use of plastic that ends up in our oceans, but also of the wrong eating habits of the American people who, according to the artist, are creating “the slow pandemic that afflicts the United States, heart disease and diabetes”.

FloFloating MAiZE, part of this year’s River to River Festival, called Four Voices, will be visible until August 30, 2020.

Emanuele D'Angelo · 3 months ago · Art

On the highest point of the Belgian nature reserve of Hoge Mouw, the Gijs Van Vaerenbergh collective formed by Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh has completed its latest work entitled “GIANT SCULPTURE”.

Located near Kasterlee in the north of Belgium, this varied landscape with coniferous forests on sandy soil, with moors, peat bogs, open sand currents, hollow roads and streams is also rich in mystical stories dating back to pre-Christian cultures.

The sculpture is conceived as a domed faceted shell, its face has the classical features typical of Greek sculpture, composed of 2115 welded metal triangles 6 mm thick.

The site-specific artwork “GIANT SCULPTURE” by artists of Belgian origin has been installed in an intimate forest clearing on top of a 30-meter-high earth dune. The head that looks as if it has just been discovered, while the rest of the body remains hidden beneath the surface, rises from the sand like a vestige of ancient times.
