Eddie Putera – memories with realistic dioramas

leave a comment »

Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better, and 51-year-old Malaysian artist Eddie Putera proves it with his stunning miniature dioramas. Putera combines his talents of miniature modeling and photography to create scenes so detailed that it’s hard to believe they are all hand-made mini versions of objects, and not real life still photography. Some of them take as little as a week to complete, and Eddie says that sometimes he manages to complete 5-6 of them in a month.

The artist’s work is characterized by urban scenes and rustic finish

 

 

 

 

Putera says that he started creating dioramas to tell a story

 

Many people buy them as gifts, or request customized sets

 

Though sometimes his miniatures look like straight from a post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie

 

 

 

 

And he perfectly recreates all textures, like sea waves crashing

 

 

Although people are not a frequent motif in his miniatures, Putera sometimes features them in living spaces

Traduz-te em Força

Portugal tem, incontornavelmente, uma enorme comunidade de imigrantes. De acordo com dados do PORDATA, em 2016, as comunidades com mais presença em Portugal são naturais do Brasil (79.569 mil), Cabo-Verde (36.193 mil), Ucrânia (34.428 mil), Roménia (30.429 mil) e China (21.953).

As mulheres imigrantes são comumente consideradas “as minorias das minorias”, no sentido em que, ao serem mulheres e ao viverem num país que não o seu, se encontram numa situação mais irregular e inconstante. Como agravante a este cenário, estas mulheres são ainda, não raras as vezes, confrontadas com preconceitos ou obstáculos, seja em termos legais, culturais, económicos, hospitalares, escolares, sociais entre outros.

A nível social, por exemplo, no livro Imigração e Etnicidade – Vivências e Trajectórias de Mulheres em Portugal (2015) Clara Almeida Santos analisa 210 peças de impressa portuguesa em oito jornais nacionais e percebe que prostituição (124 peças), clandestinidade (50 peças) e crime (26) são os temas associado à comunidade de mulheres imigrantes.

Longe destes estereótipos, pretendemos que as mulheres imigrantes surjam associadas a uma imagem de enaltecimento feminino. Assim, nasce a campanha de sensibilização Traduz-te Em Força. O principal objectivo é transmitir uma mensagem de força às mulheres imigrantes, de levantamento espiritual, que lhes cause um sentimento de conforto e identificação. Acima de tudo – e tendo em consideração a visão estereotipada que estas mulheres enfrentam – queremos que esta campanha sirva como um impulso para uma atitude emancipada que as faça enfrentar todas as dificuldades inerentes ao facto de serem mulheres e imigrantes. Ao mesmo tempo, pretendemos que esta campanha sensibilize todas e todos os portugueses para esta temática, a fim de estimular uma sociedade com menos clivagens sociais e mais harmoniosa a nível multicultural.

The Forbidden Love Story By Gabriel Picolo

leave a comment »

“Inspired by Icarus, who dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. If he was in love with the sun, then this might as well be a story of forbidden love.” This is how the author himself explains the illustrated story of Icarus and the Sun.

Gabriel Picolo from Brazil is the artist behind this beautiful yet heartbreaking story about love, fire, and loss. He is a traditional and digital illustrator who started gaining traction in 2014 when his 365 days project of drawing every day gained some loyal fans.

“For my drawings, I take inspiration from Studio Ghibli, Disney, video games among other stuff,” the artist wrote on his Patreon. “I love to draw something that is relatable to me and other people as well.”

The illustrated story of Icarus and the Sun is inspired by a famous myth of a man who died by flying too close to the burning sun with his wings, made from feathers and wax. Gabriel’s interpretation is beautiful, unique and heartbreaking all at the same time.
