Photographer Benoit Paillé was asked to participate in an art installation in Aomori, Japan on the topic of school bullying. Benoit created a large canvas of the children’s eyes looking across at their drawings about bullying on the other wall. All of the eyes in the full set featured on Behance are rich with emotion.
At a very early age Aelita Andre’s parents watched their daughter paint expressively and with passion. To help encourage her artistic abilities they setup a studio that where she can brush, splash, paint and create her expressive and colorful art. In this 13 minute short film you can see the four year old abstract painter at work in her studio.
Although I’m unsure if she truly is an art prodigy or that her parents are simply skilled marketers (an entirely different debate), it is amazing to see a young and uninhibited creative mind in action. Right now her art is on exhibition in New York City’s Agora Gallery in Chelsea through June 25th. If you want to pick up one of her pieces it’ll only set you back $25,000.
Hoxton Street Monster Supplies is the fantastical shopfront for the Ministry of Stories, a pioneering children’s writing workshop. We helped to set up the project, designed the identity for the shop, as well as the products sold there, and also worked on much of the copywriting.
Inspired by the 868 National stores (Greenwood Space Travel Supply Company, The Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. and others) We Made This Ltd. worked with the Ministry of Stories to come up with an inspiring environment where children can get 1-on-1 tutoring from professional writers and volunteers. All of the proceeds from the neck-bolt tighteners, thickest human snot, and tinned fear help fund the center.
