Italian artist Mauro Perucchetti is responsible for some of the most amazing, striking and provacative sculpture and object art that I have seen in some time. It’s a little bit of sex with a touch of violence mixed up with whole lotta pop. I think I like it.
Jonathan Calugi has updated with a new site and a lot of new work at Happy Lovers Town. His work is definitely progressing.
The members of design collective/studio Happycentro include Federico Galvani, Giuliano Garonzi, Roberto Solieri, Giulio Grigollo, Andrea Manzati, and Federico Padovani. Their Behance-folio has an impressive scroll of inspirational examples of typography. Great work.

inPRNT now has some nice prints from Designer/Illustrator Nazario Graziano. There are some nice prints there coming in several sizes. Nazario also has updated his site with some nice work since the last I checked in on him.
Dave Kinsey has put some photos up at Fecal Face of a show he did this summer in Italy and the paintings are just beautiful. His work has come so face and it is really stellar. I love his color palette and rendering style. His work just keeps getting better and it is a testament to the hard work he puts in. It makes me anxious to finally get into a house (which I am shopping for right now) so I have some space to start painting again.
There are some interesting things happening in the portfolio of 27 year old Italian graphic designer Riccardo Tagliabue.
The work from the Italian design studio Temp has been making the blog rounds today, and for good reason, there is some great stuff in their book.
“FullScream is the work of Ced Pakusevskij, Motion Artist based in Milan, Italy.
He is a winner of 3 Promax BDA World Gold Awards, and various others.
“I believe that design is, above all, a tool to communicate a concept. The style should be the appropriate grammar to deliver the message. That’s why I like to be involved in every part of a project, from concept and direction to illustration, compositing, and 3d.
Motion design is the most exciting way to do all my art at once.”
Besides being a Motion Artist he draws, does photography and composes music under the alias “SkengChan”.”
Striking, colorful, bold, frenetic and exiting work.
