INSPIRATIONS

who are you before the eyes of the world?

who are we before your eyes?

i dare to say we are this absurd mix

of inspirations and passions

for the unknown, for the journey,

for fate.

and if we stop to think, life is,

actually,

a great transformation movement

and our essence is to be

this constant change

that moves us, that makes us,

and propels us out

of context

away from the comfort zone

And into the confrontation lines

of an imminent battle

between our ideas and our ideals.

and it leads us to explore ways

that break away, that disconnect,

that reinterpret

and that reflect:

freedom is our vision of the world.

 

what are the mirrors printed

with your face and your experiences

other than you being part

of our identity, our dream

of our art.

 

what are the different cultures and stories

If not the sum of fragments that

molds us

unites us

completes us.

and proclaims:

we are the unexpected around the world

with each particle determined

to challenge the paradigms.

expand frontiers and

pioneer the real connection

between our essence

and our parallel universes.

we are, after all,

a collective of unique people.

we are ABSURDA.

creators, welcome to our odyssey.

 


 

quem é você aos olhos do mundo?

quem somos nós aos seus olhos?

ouso dizer que somos essa mistura absurda

de inspirações e paixões

pelo desconhecido, pela jornada,

pelo destino.

e se pararmos para ver, a vida é,

na verdade,

um grande movimento de transformação

e a nossa essência é ser

essa mudança constante

que nos move, nos faz,

nos joga para fora

do contexto

para longe da zona de conforto

para frente da linha de confronto

de uma batalha iminente

entre nossas ideias e nossos ideais.

e nos leva a explorar caminhos

que rompem, desconectam,

reinterpretam

e refletem:

a liberdade é a nossa visão de mundo.

 

o que são os espelhos estampados

com seu rosto e suas experiências

senão você sendo parte

da nossa identidade, do nosso sonho

da nossa arte

 

o que são as diferentes culturas e histórias

senão a soma de fragmentos que

nos molda.

nos une.

nos completa.

e diz:

somos o inesperado ao redor do mundo

com cada partícula determinada

a desafiar paradigmas.

avançar fronteiras e

desbravar a real conexão

entre nossa essência

e nossos universos paralelos.

somos, afinal,

um coletivo de pessoas únicas.

somos ABSURDA.

Creators, welcome to our odyssey.

 


 

¿Quién sos ante los ojos del mundo?
¿quiénes somos nosotros ante tus ojos?
me atrevo a decir que somos esta mezcla absurda
de inspiraciones y pasiones
por lo desconocido, por el viaje,
por el destino.
Y si nos detenemos a pensar, la vida es, realmente,
un gran movimiento de transformación
y nuestra esencia es ser
este cambio constante
que nos mueve, que nos hace,
y nos impulsa fuera del contexto,
lejos de la zona de confort
y en las líneas de confrontación
de una batalla inminente
entre nuestras ideas y nuestros ideales.
Y nos lleva a explorar maneras
que rompen, desconectan, reinterpretan y reflejan.

La libertad es nuestra visión del mundo.
Qué son los espejos con la impresión
de tu cara y tus experiencias
si no una parte de nuestra identidad,
de nuestro sueño, de nuestro arte.
Cuáles son las diferentes culturas e historias
si no la suma de fragmentos que
nos moldean
nos unen
nos completan.
y proclaman:
somos lo inesperado en todo el mundo
con cada partícula destinada
a desafiar los paradigmas.
ampliar las fronteras y
ser pioneros de la conexión real
entre nuestra esencia
y nuestros universos paralelos.
somos, al final,
un colectivo de personas únicas.
somos ABSURDA.
Creadores: bienvenidos a nuestra odisea.

Miami arrived on the art scene in 2002 when Art Basel, the world’s premier contemporary art fair decided to expand its venue. Miami was then selected as a location that would attract North and Latin American participants. By then, contemporary art found a home, and soon after, so did street art: Wynwood Art District

Once a neighborhood of empty warehouses, Wynwood is now known for its colorful murals. Every weekend, thousands of people flock to the area to enjoy the gallery exhibits, street musicians, and Miami’s famous food trucks.

A bridge can be a simple bridge or a source of colors and shapes. Everything will depend on the eyes of the beholder. Photographer Mon Zamora chose the second option when making those unique clicks from the Williamsburg Bridge in New York. It binds in that composition.

Direct from our beloved tierra, a street artist (and architect) who embellishes the walls of the world with flowers: Francisco Diaz, but can call it Pastel.

Diaz has painted murals in Mexico, Portugal, Italy, Australia, Spain and the USA.

Far from conventional architecture, I understand working on the street as an urban acupuncture. Modern cities are filled with “non-places” because of irregular and non-inclusive planning. So these paintings work to rescue the local identity (…)
I try to base my work on experiences. (…) I try to understand the conditions that the environment imposes and not arrive with an already ready concept about that space. Work with symbolism, with arrowheads and flowers. My plays start a dialogue about the nature of the man and his surroundings.

LONELY HOUSES

From a very young age the photographer Manuel Pitta, better known as Sejkko, lives flying around the world.

In an eternal air bridge between Venezuela and Portugal, Sejkko began, as a teenager, to search the houses he found along the way. The ones chosen are always those with the vibration of the place where he grew up.

These records have profoundly influenced his work, in which there is a mixture of nostalgia, magical realism, minimalism, and an obsession with geometry and patterns.

Jumping from one continent to another, the Australian Guido Van Helten was at the end of October in Eastern Europe, where he painted a giant mural on the walls of Kiev, Ukraine.

Faced with the intense cold, the street artist took a few days to create this realistic portrait of a young woman wearing a print jacket typical of that region of the world.

We have one word to define this work: Awesome!

We know that the web was taken by these images, but we had no way to leave that beautiful moment out of our records.

The desert is dry, hot, inhospitable. Atacama, then, is the most arid in the world. However, however, however, there is a special moment of the earth in which it rains in the sands of the desert. This year, due to El Niño, this desert received an unexpected amount of rain, which covered the desolate landscape with flowers.

The event is not uncommon, but the great amount of rain this year surprised and brought a scenario that was not seen for more than 40 years. A show in shades of pink and purple that will be remembered for a long time.

Happiness is only real when it is shared

If I can give advice to anyone who wants to start “falling into the world”, I would say two things: get to know Latin America (yes, break our continent) and get to know Portugal.

Portugal is a welcoming place. Not only for the language – which is unique in the European continent, but also for the warmth and receptivity with which we are received. I spent 15 wonderful days in the country and I can say that I came back in love. With that will to come back soon, you know? Algarve, Lisbon, Azores, Alentejo … the options are diverse and cater for all tastes. The certainty is unique, the nature, the architecture, the people and the history of that country are remarkable.

And it was this set of attractions that led the photographer and instagramer German André Josselin to the Lusitanian terrinhas. The young man made a roadtrip across the country. He started in Faro, went through Lisbon and finished in Porto.

The 12 days of travel were recorded in real time by Instagram and also yielded a movie that exudes wanderlust. And you can feel some of it both in the images and in André’s own words:

Everyone needs a break sometimes. The best way to do this is to stay away from all the problems. Without any concern for the past, present or future. Just hit the road with amazing people, see new things, learn more about me, find peace and do what I love. These records are about that.
Be free and evade the rules and limits that make you feel trapped. Just live. These 12 days that we spent in Portugal were surprisingly peaceful and invigorating. I slept in a tent in the middle of nowhere, I crossed the most beautiful scenery I’ve seen in a long time, I set up a tuktuk (which was a lot of fun, although I thought I’d die at any moment) and watched the most amazing sunset Life … And had beer, lots of beer!

VJSUAVE

Vjsuave was created in 2010 by the new media art duo Ygor Marotta and Ceci Soloaga. Based in São Paulo, they work with a single goal: to communicate love through light.

 

The double cat’s leap is the audiovisual performances (live) that they make with the “softcycles”, which are these tricycles adapted with computer, projector and battery, that allow to take the projections to the street and to transmit the message people through Drawings, animations and poetry. As specialists in animation, projection and digital graffiti on the move that are, in addition to working on the streets, Vjsuave has already released 4 short films: Trip (2013), La cena (2012), Homeless (2011) and Run (2011). The duo have already been invited to film and music festivals around the world, but they occasionally return to their roots and make projections on their friends’ windows.

The tag La Piel does not exist for nothing. We definitely love tattoos. Oh really! Exactly why when we come across these 9 gifs, we think: “This is the vibe ABSURD This is the Vibe La Piel, this has to go to the blog!” And yes, we stayed here in the madness to call the favorite tattoo artist and schedule a session to mark the skin. Was that just this way?

Ah, Latin America … absurdly beautiful place and scenery of that charming timelapse.

The documentary Patagonia 8K is a production of the German company Time Storm Films and explores the beautiful and wild landscapes of Argentina and southern Chile. The recordings took place over 6 weeks and recorded frames from more than 7,500 kilometers from Santiago to Punta Arenas. Filmed in 8K resolution – hence its name, the producers capture about 100,000 frames that make up this video.

Anything we say will not be enough to express the beauty contained in Patagonia 8K. We only have one word: WATCH!

When we find material like this we stay like this: with wide smiles, sighs and pride to be from here.

Watching the second episode of the series SENSE8 (if you did not see it, watch it), a scene caught the eye. The characters Nomi and Amanita walked through a place impregnated with street art.

As curiosity has accompanied us from the cradle, we went behind that place and discovered an alley, in the city of San Francisco (California), called the Clarion Alley.

Originally called “Cedar Lane,” the name of the alley was changed, in the turn of the 2000s, to Clarion Alley. The street is notable for the frequent artistic activities – carried out by the community – and for the collective that bears the same name of the place. This collective makes a kind of “management” of what will roll through the walls of the street. That is why, from time to time, you can see new works there.

Check it out!
