These beautiful and simplistic watercolour art prints by Silke Bonde, a Copenhagen based designer and artist, are so stunning with the perfect Scandinavian feel. They are all a part of their ‘Looking Closer’ collection.
“‘Looking closer’ is a collection that encourage you to take a closer look at the nature and it’s elements. Take a break and notice the creations, patterns and changing life in the nature. The use of blue and green tones characterizes the Northern nature and it’s color palette. The collection is made with watercolors to match the organic shapes which you will find in the nature. A minimalistic collection with a mix of straight lines and organic shapes.” – Silke Bonde
A giant green apple has appeared in the piazza del Duomo in Milan! It is eight meter high and completely covered in natural grass. The installation is ‘Terzo Paradiso La Mela Reintegrata‘ (Third Paradise – The Reinstated Apple) and will be on display from the 3rd to 18th of May. It was created by artist Michelangelo Pistoletto using the apple as a symbol of creation and life.
“The symbol of the apple is the whole history we have behind us, starting from the bite, which is the separation of mankind from nature and origin of the artificial world as it grew to the size of today’s all-encompassing. The apple is reinstated with entry into a new era in which the artificial world and the natural world are reunited producing a new planetary balance. The Third Paradise aims to reconcile different polarities as nature and artifice and can only be realized through the assumption of collective social responsibility.” – Michelangelo Pistoletto
