Petrovsky & Ramone for the Dutch National Opera & Ballet

By on Apr 11, 2014

The renowned photographer’s duo Petrovsky & Ramon have created the new campaign image for the Dutch National Opera & Ballet – the new name of the cultural institution for Opera and ballet, created through the merger of ‘De Nederlandse Opera’, ‘Dutch National Ballet’ and the ‘Amsterdam Music Theatre’. As the two love to tell stories through still images, they captured the romantic feeling of ballet so well, that the images help you imagine what the music must sound like. For the remaining part of this season, and for the next (2014-2015), they will continue to produce the campaign images. Besides photographs, Petrovsky and Ramone will also make video trailers. Petrovsky & Ramone state: “Collaborating with the Dutch National Opera & Ballet is the ‘ultimate’ experience for us. We think it’s wonderful that we can act as the filter for these...

Jack Purcell X Denham Collusion

By on Apr 9, 2014

Thursday, 10th of April sees the official launch of the 1st Edition Converse Jack Purcell X Denham sneaker. This collaboration brings to life the mutual appreciation that Converse and Denham have for each other. Converse’s Jack Purcell represents the single most iconic sneaker when it comes to projecting a particular blend of spring-in-your-step optimism, laid-back cool and unpretentious modernism, a style concept that dates back to the 1930′s. When the design team at Jack Purcell approached Denham to create a special double-label “Collusion” edition, it was no surprise that the most outspoken graphic feature on the Denham x Jack Purcell Collusion would be the “scissor-face” design placed at the heel. The artwork was cut in half allowing the lower blades to be rotated 90 degrees creating a smile of its own. “I have hundreds of Jack Purcells at home, so it has...

Milou Maass & Herschel Supply // An Artistic View On Fashion

By on Mar 18, 2014

In this art series, AJANAKU invites upcoming artists to share their view on fashion. Not in words, but through their artistry. By incorporating a fashion item in their work, each item is approached as a piece of art. This time we asked young designer and illustrator Milou Maass to share her opinion on the “2014 Studio Collection”, by Herschel Supply, from a female point of view. Designed to challenge the elements with finesse, and inspired by the perseverance to race against the wind, the twelve piece series is made to prepare all men for any voyage. What did Maass find of the bag? ‘When I saw the Herschel backpack I immediately thought of mountain climbing and hiking, which is obviously a pretty masculine pastime. I still wanted to incorporate the mountain climbing as an inspiration but I made it more feminine by creating a sort of bondage construction with mountain...

ARCHIST // What Would A House Designed By Mondrian Or Anish Kapoor Look Like?

By on Mar 16, 2014

What Would A House Designed By Mondrian Or Anish Kapoor Look Like? This is a question Italian architect and illustrator Federico Babina asked himself in a recently unveiled project, titled ‘Archist.’ It is all about looking at the connection between architecture and the visual arts, a project that comprises a series of illustrations of imaginary buildings inspired by famous works of art. The resulting images demonstrate what Federico Babina believes is the ”implicit partnership between Architecture and Art.” The facade is sometimes treated as a canvas decorated with a well-known piece of art, while in other cases, inspiration is drawn from the artist’s overall output to create an inventive architectural composition. List of artists: Keith Haring, Sol LeWitt, Anish Kapoor, Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Pablo Picasso, Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Donald Judd,...

Miles Aldridge // One Black&White And Twenty Four Colour Photographs

By on Mar 16, 2014

On March 8, Reflex Gallery in Amsterdam opened a new exhibition by Miles Aldridge, called “VAnitas” One Black&White and Twenty Four Color Photographs by . Aldridge, who studied at Central St Martins, was first a music video director before he became a fashion photographer in the 1990s. His former career seemed to have inspired his current one, as all his photographs tend to transmit a certain cinematic feeling; his images are clear and perfect, and most of the time beautiful women are depicted, who look like they live in a perfect world. But when you look closer, their worlds aren’t that awesome; their blank expressions and empty stares betray their unhappiness. It’s Aldridge’s aim to depict the female in a state of contemplation, so the viewer is left wondering what is going on in her head. He explains: ‘A slightly uncomfortable quality is what I’m after. I...
