The film tells the story of Mauricio, wo presents himself as a polemical Mayor that takes justice by his own hand in the wealthiest and safest municipality in Latin America. “The Mayor” analyzes the complex plot that is weaved between the exercise of power and modern politics immersed in a stage plagued with violence, strong economic interests and a blunt discredit of the political class.

SOUNDTRACK OF THE DAY - "TANGLED UP" BY CAR EMERALD

Here’s the song that’s constantly playing on my iPhone right now. Dutch jazz singer Caro Emerald’s “Tangled Up”. “Tangled Up” is the first realised song from her second album called “The Shocking Miss Emerald” that was released in Europe this February. Caro Emerald’s first album “Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor” was the biggest selling album in Netherlands in 2010. “The Other Women” and “A Night Like This” were my favourite songs for that album.

FASHION ILLUSTRATION - ANIME GIVENCHY SPRING- SUMMER 2013

One of my favourite anime TV series is “Darker than Black”. I think it’s one of the best written sci-fi action TV series ever. Thank goodness to Netflix I’m able to watch it over and over again. Also since I think that Givenchy spring/summer 2013 collection is one of the best this season. I imagined what would look like if the characters from the show were the collection. So this is just fun fashion illustration. They are not a collaboration or affiliation. It is just fun homage to both.


Givenchy spring/summer 2013 collection were inspired by religion and punk culture.


 "DARKER THAN BLACK"
 Ten years ago, an inscrutable anomaly known as "Hell's Gate" appeared in Tokyo, altering the sky and wreaking havoc on the landscape. The real stars disappeared, replaced by false stars. During this time, people possessing various special abilities emerged, each capable of different supernatural feats - these are known as Contractors. Each Contractor has a corresponding fake star, which reacts to their activities. Their incredible abilities, however, cost them of their humanity. They can commit murder in cold blood. They have no unnecessary emotions, logic and rationale. The Contractors were kept secret from the masses by the government. Different nations and organizations around the world train and utilize Contractors as spies and assassins. Following the disastrous Heaven's War, the United States lost its dominant position as a superpower to a mysterious organization named the Syndicate. The story revolves around a Chinese contractor codenamed "Hei" as he undertakes various espionage and assassination missions in Tokyo under the direction of the aforementioned Syndicate.



  



 
 


ARTS - GWON OSANG

Korean rising star artist Osang Gwon (Kwon O-sang) is known for his work on eliminating the difference between the two medium; photography and sculpture by creating a hybrid between the two. He started garnering international fame with his amazing photo-collage sculptures series called “Deodorant Type”. It was a series of life-size sculptures made up of hundreds of photographs plastered on to Styrofoam bodies.

Popular culture plays a big part on his works. Gwon derives his theme mostly in glossy advertising and consumer culture. Gwon’s re-interprets the classical sculptural themes and techniques. His work can be found in numerous local and international exhibitions, as well as in publications that present and feature contemporary Korean art.

Just recently he collaborated with fashion label Wooyoungmi for their spring/summer 2013 campaign. Osang Gwon has created two impressive photo-collaged sculptures entitled “Aztec Pattern” and “Nuages Pattern”. The pieces depict two male models who sport vibrant suited pieces from the WOOYOUNGMI Spring/Summer 2013 menswear line.
