In our first project of Va 301, we’re gonna create a corporate identity for one of the 3 things we chose in the class which are; a Chinese restaurant, a second hand boutique and a search engine. I began my project with searching some Chinese restaurants to have an idea about what my Chinese restaurant will look like. I decided to create a restaurant which will have a very modern line that can also represent the concept of Far East, so the main color in the restaurant will be red and there will be some Chinese motifs but in a very minimal way. It will be not so luxurious but also not so down at the heels. It will adress mainly the young people. These pictures are the ones which i liked their concepts.
Secondly i searched some boutiques which might give me some opinion about vintage stores. Since i am very interested in vintage clothes, it’s very important for me to create my ideal vintage store. It must be exciting, colorful, energetic, visually well designed and organized. One of the most important thing is looking clean because the main problem in the second hand stores is that they look dirty and smell like they became mouldy. I want to use decorative wallpapers, different types of vitrine models and old fashioned furniteres. Here are the stores that inspires me.
Finally, i looked up for some search engines. I wanna have a search engine that is visually well designed and directly adresses the things people are looking for. The background must have a very plain picture or grapichs according to the concept that doesn’t bother eyes. There might be soft colors and the typography of the site must have non-serifed font. My search engine will adress art activities like it finds concerts, festivals and museums which people might consider to go.
Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was an Austrian painter who was interested in Symbolism and also a member of the Vienna Art Nouveau movement. He was painting mostly women bodies and his works were involving eroticism. His was also making sketches, murals and other art based objects. Many of the works he did were displayed in Vienna Secession gallery.
When i first saw these pictures from Mueck’s exhibition, i just couldn’t believe it. I thought nobody can do such realistic sculptures. But obviously Australian sculptor Ron Mueck can do it. He is making human sculptures from wax and they are generally in huge sizes to be more impressive.They have all the details that a human being has that’s why they look as if they’re real. Here are some of the photos of this amazing exhibition:
This is the mask of his face.
George De Chirico is an Italian painter who was born in 1888 and raised in Greece. He had studied in Munich, and in his early twenties, he was affected from the Symbolist painter Arnold Böcklin and he began to paint strange and oneiric cityscapes. Also he was one of the most important Surrealist painters and he painted a series of faceless portraits.
Berkhemer is a sculptor whose work can be defined by the heterogeneity of its materials and styles. She develops her own form of sculpture, no matter if she is drawing, posing or working with soft or hard materials. She is interested in boundaries like a formal sense in terms of the body and space, the sense of content, the connection with zones of taboo and critical analyses of the market and society. She is trying to cross these boundaries.
Pavel Nikolayevich Filonov was a Russian avant-garde painter who was born in Moscow, 19th century. He was also a poet and an art theorist. His works are certainly impressive because his style is kinda unique.He generally drew surreal shapes for the human body. When you look at his paintigns, you’ll see many details hidden behind the dramatic colors and geometric shapes and the feeling of pain clearly reflected.
