Tío Pepe se va por una temporada

Tío Pepe | Miguel Pereira

La Puerta del Sol de Madrid se ha quedado este lunes sin uno de sus símbolos más internacionales, el cartel de Tío Pepe que desde 1935 preside este espacio desde lo alto del edificio del número 1, de donde ha sido retirado para preservarlo mientras se realizan obras en el inmueble.

Éste fue uno de los pocos carteles publicitarios que se salvó de la ‘criba’ realizada por el Ayuntamiento con la ordenanza de Publicidad Exterior, que desde febrero de 2009 prohíbe este tipo de anuncios en las azoteas y fachadas de la capital, permitiendo sin embargo algunas excepciones como ésta, el cartel de Schweppes o el famoso Toro de Osborne.

El cartel de Tío Pepe es uno de los iconos más famosos del país, y actualmente es el único neón que queda en el kilómetro 0 de la capital. Fue diseñado por Luis Pérez Solero para las González Byass en homenaje al tío del fundador de la compañía, y la clave de su éxito estuvo en lo simple del concepto: una botella de Jerez con una chaquetilla, sombrero cordobés y una guitarra.

Así, el famoso ‘Sol de Andalucía’ podrá continuar mirando pasar la vida desde su privilegiada ubicación, donde fue instalado para conmemorar el primer centenario de la bodega. Sin embargo, durante este paréntesis siempre seguiremos teniendo la oportunidad de visitar la galería de nuzart.com para seguir disfrutando de su originalidad y belleza.

Last Monday, one of Madrid’s most international symbols, Tio Pepe’s billboard  which presides the Puerta del Sol from the top of the building at number 1 -since 1935-, has been removed to preserve it while rehabilitation work is being done in the building.

This was one of the few billboards that “escaped” from the Outdoor Advertising Ordinance held by the City Council in February 2009 that prohibits advertisements on the roofs and façades of the capital, allowing only some exceptions for iconic billboards and neons such as Tio Pepe, Schweppes or Toro de Osborne.

Tio Pepe´s billboard is one of the most famous icons of Spain, and is currently the only neon that remains at Madrid’s Puerta del Sol, known as the “km 0″ of the capital. It was designed by Luis Perez Solero for Gonzalez Byass  in tribute to the uncle of the founder of the company, whose key to success was simple in concept: a bottle of sherry wearing a jacket, a typical cordovan hat and a guitar.

After completing the renovation of the building, the famous Tio Pepewill be able to continue watching life pass from its privileged location, where it was installed to commemorate the first anniversary of the winery. Meanwhile, during this period, we will always have the opportunity to visit nuzart.com’s gallery to continue to enjoy its uniqueness and beauty.

Radiante Basquiat

Posted in Artistas, Events, creatividad, exposiciones, pintura on Septiembre 29th, 2010 by admin – Be the first to comment

La Fundación Beyeler en Riehen (Basilea, Suiza), acaba de albergar la primera gran retrospectiva en Europa sobre la obra de este pintor que pasó de pintar en las calles como un pobre por decisión propia, a exponer en prestigiosos certámenes artísticos. Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) es una de las personalidades más fascinantes de la reciente historia del arte. Este neoyorkino produjo en ocho años más de 1000 pinturas y 2000 dibujos, con una urgencia que parece que estuviera motivada por la exigencia de una corta vida; murió con tan sólo 27 años de una sobredosis. Lejos de tener un carácter oscuro y difícil, Basquiat estaba lleno de vitalidad, y así lo reflejan sus obras, caracterizadas por una gran fuerza expresiva y una sinceridad casi infantil.

The Beyeler Foundation in Riehen (Basle, Switzerland), has hosted the first full-scale retrospective in Europe on the work of this painter who went from painting in the street as a voluntary pauper to exhibiting at prestigious art fairs. Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) is one of the most fascinating personalities in the recent art history. Born in New York, he produced over 1000 paintings and 2000 drawings in eight years. Such urgency almost seems motivated by the demands of a short life, for he died of an overdose at the age of just 27. Far from having the abrasive and moody character that might be expected of a heroin addict, Basquiat was full of vitality, at least when he was painting, and his work reflects this in its expressive strength and its almost childish sincerity.

“The lights, the freeway traffic and the industrial look made this an image just waiting to happen”.- Bob Mead

Born and raised in Cleveland (Ohio), Bob Mead moved to Los Angeles (California) at the age of 18. He bought his first camera at age 9 - a Kodak Brownie. Then, a “love affair” started. He was raised on and studied black & white film. He shoot 35mm B&W, 35mm transparency and large format film. He moved into digital shooting 8 months ago. He likes nature’s architecture and man’s architecture. Things he is attracted to in an image are lines, colors and shapes. With flowers he likes to move in close and sometimes just go for details. Other times it’s the shape and or color. There is nothing more simple than a line - be it straight, curved or bent. It can be just one line or many - bold or subtle - a part or the whole as long as it says something to me. Architecture has the same appeal - lines and shapes and to some extent the location. If the location adds to the architecture or the general feeling then fantastic. His preference is film for black and white and for color I’m split between Fuji velvia transparency film and digital. He is now beginning to move into large format black & white film with the purchase of a Zone VI 4×5 field camera. Next year he will do photography 100 per cent of the time and make his living from his passion. His image of “Callas in Sepia” was selected for this year’s Carmel Art & Film Festival. Carmel California is one of the greatest artist colonies in the world so to have been chosen was a real honor. The image will hang in a gallery until October 30th and then 10 artists will be picked to go on to New York… Good luck Bob!!

Gideon | Simon Currell

Simon Currell’s artwork (1976, Harrow - Middlesex. 33 yr old digital artist), has been motivated by over twelve years experience in employment as a telephone sales representative and is inspired by a perception of how corporate space has become commoditized within call centre workplaces. The artworks investigates how employees react to this perceived objectification through assimilating or appropriating objects within their work environment.

The artworks are created by manipulating and appropriating imagery, objects and general processes commonly associated with office-based work. The objects used for my artwork includes office partitioning, appliances, stationery and gadgets, whilst the photographic images he has generated also frequently refer to the general modular design plan of the call centre itself. The works establish and develops practicable artistic modes of inquiry, ones compatible with his own working terms of employment as a call center agent. Thus the artworks are frequently conceived in, experimented with and in some cases resolved from this workplace setting. The intention behind working in this way was to shift aspects of his artistic practice outside the conventional realm of a studio setting and relocate it firmly within the codes, conventions, expectations and environment of the companies facilitating my employment as a telesales representative.

The premise for such an investigation starts from the idea that company time and resources can become misused, reenergized and translated as an expressive means for communicating human emotion and creating art. It is his assertion that this act may be viewed as a humanizing impulse or form of resistance against what is arguably described as a dehumanizing and alienating workplace.

His artworks investigate spatial, material, digital and conceptual methods of interpreting call center workplaces. His research has used repetition, automation and homogeneity as an expressive means for creating art. As his artworks attest, these creative methods articulate a degree of dehumanization and methodical order that he perceives to be integral to the call center environment. The research develops a highly formal range of visual material that is approached with a deliberately fetishistic attention to detail. It is a body of work that investigates the culture of the contemporary call centre and navigates the processes of workplace assimilation and appropriation.

Moderno Cubismo

Posted in Artistas, Decoración, arte digital, color, creatividad on Julio 1st, 2010 by admin – Be the first to comment

En el arte como en la moda, se reinventan los estilos, se crean reediciones de los diseños más conocidos y se reinterpretan a artistas del pasado. Todo se va para volver con aires nuevos, unos aires que que soplan a criterio de los nuevos artistas con una marcada influencia que se inspira mirando hacia atrás. Pedro Susial, artista digital y publicista retirado, reinterpreta el cubismo que tantas veces hemos visto en los cuadros de Picasso. Su obra Joven con sombrero, recupera las formas cubistas creando un mosaico de colores vivos y planos, para encerrar el rostro de una mujer marcado por líneas rectas a excepción de los labios, los ojos y el sombrero. Es aquí donde Susial propone su seña de identidad con un nuevo cubismo digital propio del siglo XXI.

Joven con sombrero | Pedro Susial

In art, as it is in fashion, the styles are reinvented creating new editions of the most popular designs and reinterpreting artists of the past. Everything goes and comes back with new airs; airs that blow at the discretion of new artists with a strong influence that is inspired by looking back. Pedro Susial is a digital artist and a retired publicist who reinterprets the Cubism that many times we have seen in the paintings of Picasso. His “Joven con sombrero“, retrieves the cubist forms creating a mosaic of vibrant and “flat”colors, to enclose the face of a woman marked by straight lines with the exception of the lips, the eyes and the hat. It is here where Pedro Susial proposes his trademark with a new digital cubism which is very appropriate for the XXI century: today.
