Artists Reimagine Sailor Moon With Their Own Flair

2020-05-20T23:55:01+08:00

Artists Reimagine Sailor Moon With Their Own Flair words by claudia 22.05.2020 The screenshot of Sailor Moon’s concerned gaze—seemingly mid-battle, kickstarted the “Sailor Moon Redraw” which has taken over social media over the past couple of days. Draw-it-in-your-style challenges primarily call out to illustrators to recreate a character invented by another artist and often concludes being remixed in a completely different style or headed towards the route of humour. This challenge is believed to have been started by Korean artist, @O_NL44 last year with a screenshot that appears to be from Episode 125 of Sailor Moon S, titled “A Bright Shooting Star! Saturn, and the Messiah.”. Being one of the greatest anime heroines of all time, it’s no surprise that artists from all over the world would participate in the challenge. With each iteration of [...]

Fall Asleep With New Museum’s ‘Bedtime Stories’ Series

2020-05-18T17:50:04+08:00

 Fall Asleep With New Museum’s ‘Bedtime Stories’ Series words by angelyn 19.05.2020 Being under quarantine has led to us having sleepless nights and hopefully, the New Museum’s latest initiative to share bedtime stories with artists such as Takashi Murakami and Jeff Koons help ease trying times. New York’s New Museum and Maurizio Cattelan have asked some of the world’s biggest artists to share parts of their favourite books or even their own creation. Iggy Pop kicked off the series by sharing about a beloved stray dog from Mexico which was the ‘best part of his life’ but is ultimately run over by a car while eating some trash. While David Bryne will read from “The Three Christs of Ypsilanti,” a case study by the social psychologist Milton Rokeach about an experiment he conducted on three [...]

G-SHOCK Teams Up With One Piece For A Coveted Collab words by iqmall 18.05.2020 G-SHOCK and collaborations go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. And the latest crossover has got fanbases shook. Recently teased on their Japanese and Asian social media accounts, a collaboration with the hit manga series One Piece has been hinted at.

The design will celebrate the motley crew of pirates in differing insignia, silhouettes and text. One Piece is arguably the most successful anime franchises not only in its [...]

Gucci Propels Exhibition To Explore A Different Future

2020-05-11T17:40:21+08:00

Gucci Propels Exhibition To Explore A Different Future words by claudia 13.05.2020 “No Space, Just a Place. Eterotopia” is a project powered by Gucci and curated by Myriam Ben Salah to support the cultural landscape and contemporary art scene in Seoul. Making up this multi-layered exhibit are works from a diverse range of local and international art practitioners. Through immersive pieces and artefacts, the artists explore their own dominant discourse by, for example, portraying observations of the human body in relation to art and questioning conventional attitudes such as that of painting to what people can own or dream of owning. Underlying this project is Gucci’s Creative Director, Alessandro Michele’s reflections on what an “other space” might be: a place to build a different, desirable future with new ways for humans to relate to each [...]

Play As A Drug Lord In The Breaking Bad Monopoly Game

2020-05-11T17:04:05+08:00

Play As A Drug Lord In The Breaking Bad Monopoly Game words by iqmall 11.05.2020 Monopoly can be an intense game at times. We’ve seen long-standing friendships strained through tongue-in-cheek property takeovers or your mom absolutely decimating your little sister through fines as you sit and watch behind bars. So to up the ante just a little more, Hasbro has released a Breaking Bad edition of the famous tabletop game. The cult hit TV series ran on AMC from 2008 to 2013, and infamously revolved around a high school chemistry teacher (Bryan Cranston) who turns to manufacturing and selling methamphetamine to secure his family’s future after he’s diagnosed with lung chancer. Instead of the little dog and the boot, players will have a choice of Heisenberg's hat, Tio's bell, a money barrel, a gas mask, [...]
