Fun with Paintings by Javier Mayoral

Fun with Paintings by Javier Mayoral

The paintings (acrylics on wood) by Javier Mayoral are based on random texts, with just the right imagery added to them. Some are sexy, some are not: but all illustrations a little bit absurd.. So much fun and pretty at the same time. Available from pulpbrother.com. Price ranges from from $150 to $200.

As we speak (January 2018) the ‘Mustache’ painting on the left is still for sale. Javier Mayoral’s production seems high, so it’s maybe nice for you to follow him on instagram: @pulpbrother

Invisible Personage Armchair

Invisible Personage Armchair

Obviously it’s winter time. It’s cold, nee, it’s Freezing. This awful weather makes us remember the furry designer chair we saw at the BD Barcelona showroom in Spain last summer. The armchair is named ‘Invisible Personage’, it’s created (or: extracted from the “Singularities” painting, by Salvador Dali in 1935. During those years Dalí completed a series with absent figures, which he called invisible personages.) by Oscar Tusquets, inspired by Dali and from the Dali series of designs by Oscar Tusquets. Mr Tusquets is a multi-talented person: an architect, painter and designer of furniture and other products. In his younger years he and Salavador Dali were friends. Tusquets, being one of the founders of the brand BD, produced the plastic Dalilips couch chair in 1975 together with the surrealist painter. This is the Invisible Personage armchair, the latest design from Dalí-inspired design series (2016) at BD Barcelona, made in a limited edition of 20 pieces. It will keep you warm but, unfortunately; this chair is an artpiece, can it really be used as a seater? We wonder how, whomever bought the chair (with the bowl on top of it) uses and cleans it?

Carpet interiors by Farid Rasulov

Carpet interiors by Farid Rasulov

The Carpet interiors by Farid Rasulov are installations and digital prints of entirely upholstered rooms in which he stages animals in white. We, at Mimi Berlin, think they are wonderful. We would transform our house into Rasulov’s Carpet Interiors but we dont own a vacuum cleaner: so that’s a no go, period. Farid “Rasulov is active across a wide range of artistic media – large scale paintings, installations, 3D graphics, animation and sculpture.” (read more faridrasulov.com)

Dogs in the Livingroom is an installation from the solo show at the Raboan Moussoin Gallery, Paris in 2014.

Jump into the Future: Opening Night

Jump into the Future: Opening Night

Mimi Berlin Blogger Team visited the opening night of the exhibition Jump into the Future –  Art from the 90’s and 2000’s. The Borgmann Donation. Thomas Borgmann is an art-collector who donated (the largest donation yet) his art to the Stedelijk museum in Amsterdam. Among the featured artists are Cosima von Bonin (see images below)

The opening night wasn’t just drinks-n-nibbles-like, no; it was a true large-scaled party! An ‘Artsy-Party’ to be precise. The Stedelijk museum co-hosted, with Ultrasexy and Amsterdam Art Weekend, this party for everyone for free. the gigantic entrance hall of the Stedelijk Museum transforms into an intimate artistic rave club where nothing is what it seems (readmore artsy party) We are not sure it was an intimate affair; the place was packed, but the museum sure was turned into a rave club! Fun! For a moment we truly felt like we lived in ‘the big-city’. Thanks for donating this party Amsterdam!
