BANKSY, there´s very limited information about this incredible and surprising artist, so lets stick up on what is proved and of course on his amazing art and way of calling our attention in different topics of life and the world we live in.

We don´t know his real name, we don`t know really were hi was born, we barely no how he looks like. We believe thanks to Tristan Manco that he was born in Yate, near to Bristol, didn´t start getting involved with the graffiti until the end of 1980´s. Even though we don´t know much about his life, his works of art speak for themselves, we can see politic, cultural pop, moral, different ethnics... He is very influenced by Blek le Rat, Parisian artist who started working with stincils in the early 1980´s. Banksy has dedicate his life to spread his art in cities around the world always being a free soul that even doesn´t profit form sales, he works to help organizations like Greenpeace. Sadly his art doesn´t please everyone, people have labeled him as vandal, hypocrite (for working for big companies like MTV and PUMA)

When his anonymity is the fact this artist can be very clever and incredibly original, he has sneak undercover into famous museums around the world (Tate Modern, MOMA, Brooklin Museum...) to hang his work.

I leave you some of his work so you can amaze yourself!!

Through 300 years of Western clothing, examining the changing perceptions and meanings of color through various eras we can see a hole history about it, from the eighteenth-century court gowns to couture creations by twentieth-century masters have been surrounded by colorful fabrics, prints and complements.

Due to its meaning black and white has also been strongly present through the time and we could say they had been the “safe choices” in the design world, representing luxury, elegance and tenuous. Although bright color is often associated with being a sort of primitive, wild, folk-art aesthetic, we have seen through the time how all different colors can be elegant and luxurious.

Throughout history, color has represent religion, status, origins, and its use has depend on resources. The absence of mass production in the past made some color and textiles unaffordable to many people. To be able to afford clothing in certain colors meant you were wealthier than most other people as some ingredients to produce specific colors were not available for everyone.

In our time we are seeing a huge increase in the use of colors in the design environment. Fantastic mix of colors in architecture, arts, events, interior design, everyday products, fashion and of course, marketing and communication are not staying behind, advertising and publicity strategies are the perfect example of “exploiting” the advantages and physiologic influence of colors. With just a glance we´ll get a sense of how color is gaining ground.

We all come across color on our daily life without paying any attention to the subtle messages we send or receive based on the colors we wear. We respond to colors influenced by a mixture of biological, phycological, social and cultural factors. Different colors have different meaning in various cultures and perceptions usually change depending on the origins, for example, apparently, people from warm climates respond favorably to warm colors while northerners like cooler colors.

Talking about colors is actually talking about mood, colors have the power of transmitting us feelings and sensations, creating an “external” mood on the place we are, the add we are watching or the event we are attending to. Imagine being at Cirque du Soleil, the environment created by colors will make us feel happy, exited and uplifted, on the opposite side, imagine being at the doctors consult, you will feel calm and appeased. Think about any brand, automatically you may visualize an specific color to it due to the feeling it gives you or the mood it transmit you.

Colors don't just plays a very important role in our day life, its a vital representation of our personality, mood and culture.


At least 50% of the textiles we throw away are recyclable, however, the proportion of textile wastes reused or recycled annually is only around 25%.Many fashion businesses are choosing to incorporate recycled fibres, fabrics or clothes in their collections, because of the important environmental benefits:

Reduces the need for landfill space. Textiles as synthetics (man-made fibres) will not decompose, while woollen garments do decompose and produce methane, which contributes to global warming.

Reduces pressure on virgin resources. Results in less pollution and energy savings, as fibres do not have to be manufactured or transported from abroad.

After a research i found out that ARMANI started incorporating eco fabrics since the 90´s,in 1995 they developed new materials using 60% recycled wool! Their jeans were so revolutionary for the time that they were shown at the Science & Technology Museum of Milan.

But there´s also a very creative part on fashion and recycling, take a look on this incredible garments i´ve found made from evey-day materials.

This stuning dress was made by Susie Macmurray from 1400 rubber gloves, it was exhibit at the "New York City Museum of Arts and Design"

Dress made by Jolis Paons, she only used phonebook paper! FANTASTIC!!

Dresses made by Designer Gary Harvey 1- from recycled military jackets 2- only newspaper!

(shown at London Fashion week 2007)

I guess the most exciting fashion aspect of recyclinf is the link it has with art. It takes an special talentent to make stylish clothes from recycling material. Being creative is escential, we can find garments made out of every day use material, incredible!!


“Viajes por el híper espacio” The exhibition hosts a series of installations and sculptures of great size, setting a course that asks the viewer their active participation, challenging our perception of space around us and our own presence.

We can go on a “trip” with
Carsten Höller´s creation, Corridors formed by arcs of slightly elevated ground lights, where you can read “Exit Only”. Corridor through which you can only go as far we see our reflection in a mirror.

Boundaries between fiction and reality are becoming more complex, contemporary art can be the best reflection of the new realities. This journey through hundreds of bulbs puts us well on this idea, a trip through “hyperspace”

Los Carpinteros (Cuban) - “Frío estudio del desastre” Another of the most striking works in the exhibition. A concrete wall fragments releasing bursts forward, forming a path of desolation in which we seem to be in the disaster at the same time that has occurred.

Ai Wei Wei creates facilities that appeal to the body and the senses and reflect on the relationship between body, space and architecture. He recently carpeted the Tate Modern in London, covering it with pipes of porcelain, in this work he also takes the best of the past and the traditions of his country.

If we keep delving on this fantastic exhibition we will also find Olafur Eliasson with “Your uncertain shadow” that encourages the viewer to interact with his silhouette and his uncertain shadow.

The viewer projects multiple shadows onto the wall that change in intensity, color and size depending on their position. Incredible trip of color silhouettes, fantasy shadows and creativity.

Definitely a “must-go” exhibition full of creativity and artfulness that can make you go onto a magical world of art, technology and senses.
