Graphic Art Between Renaissance And Modernity

The French artist Benedicte Piccolillo, graphic designer and street artist, is the talent hidden behind Voglio Bene. Based in Mauguio, South of France, she creates from “coups de Coeur” that she may have had on old paintings from masters. Initially a photographer, the artist is self-taught in digital graphic creation. “I can fall in love with a piece from the Middle Ages as well as a Mannerist painting. My favorite period remains the Renaissance, especially Italian, but also Spanish. It is full of religious paintings, each one more beautiful than the next, which maintains and delights my spiritual side” she explains. Depuis quelques années, Bénédicte s’intéresse de plus en plus à l’histoire de l’art et veut donner une dimension plus culturelle à son travail. « French castles and museums are beginning to be seduced and to approach me in order to launch collaborations », she explains.closevolume_off

French Artist Creates Humorous Art In The Streets Of Paris (80 New Pics)

It’s definitely not the first time that the French street art artist OakOak has been mentioned on Bored Panda, as we have previously featured the said artist’s work here, and here.

Tired Of Women Being Portrayed As Fragile And Delicate, Artist Helena Hauss Created A Series Of “Porcelain” Weapons

Helena Hauss is a French artist known for her incredible ballpoint pen drawings. However, a little while ago the artist decided to try out something different by creating a series of delft-style “porcelain” weapons in a project she calls Hell Hath no Fury.

In a previous interview with Bored Panda, the artist said that in the project she wanted to express some things inside her that she just couldn’t do with drawings. Helena wanted to go beyond that and felt the need to create an object that would say it all the instance you saw it, something allegoric, a visual metaphor.

French artist Helena Hauss created a series of “porcelain” weapons in a project she calls Hell Hath no Fury

Helena says the “porcelain” weapons are an “approach to represent the inner strength and fury that comes with being a woman” in contrast to the appearance of delicacy they’re often branded with. “Women have repeatedly been construed as the “weaker sex” and are regularly being preyed on or diminished in some way or another,” explained the artist.

According to Helena, women are too often portrayed as fragile and delicate and that this project is “an expression of the contrasting subtleties that come with femininity”, as well as “an attempt at vindication from a feeling of constant vulnerability that’s been forced upon [women].”

The artist revealed that the weapons aren’t actually made of porcelain but were instead created using polyurethane. Helena explains that not using porcelain was an artistic choice: “I wanted something strong that wouldn’t break easily, as a metaphor for its subject. Something that would look like Porcelain but actually isn’t.”

Helena says she doesn’t want her works to become political and believes that art works best when it’s done with sincerity, not with an agenta. “It’s the difference between a song written for the masses and one written from the heart: where the lyrics hit you as something you can really relate to,” further explained the artist. “That’s the human experience and in the end, it’s much more powerful than any political agenda: because that’s when we’ll all do better, when we actually truly understand each other”.

The artist explained that the “porcelain” weapons are an expression of herself and added that people are often perceived as something they’re not, and the best way to change that is to “actually show ourselves, make ourselves be seen, be heard”.

Helena plans on creating similar art in the future and is currently working on a special piece of embroidery that tackles the same kind of idea by using “both decorum and cynicism”. She added that most of her work explores the theme of irreverence and that it’s all about “challenging imposed labels and reveling in one’s own identity rather than having to apologize for it.”
