It might seam small, when you walk in, but it actually extends way back, so go for it and explore!

NYC Snow Monsters Intervention By Peter Regli

Culture Music Peter Regli Snow Monsters by ceos_downbeat

In front of one of our most famous buildings in the Flatiron Plaza, Peter Regli exhibited a beautiful installment. The Snow Monsters intervention showed 12 amazing marble snowmen experiencing the several stages of melting.

Culture Music Peter Regli Snow Monsters by ceos_downbeat

The Snow Monsters intervention presented by Dominique Lévy Gallery showcased during the month of March.
 
It’s was a fantastic and creative work! It amused not only visitors, but all New Yorkers that passed by the Plaza area. They became part of the beautiful scene in front of our famous Flatiron building, on 23rd Street.
 
This installment was part of a series called “Reality Hacking“, created by the Swiss-born artist Peter Regli. This series already add up to over 300 interventions around the globe. A remarkable number, for sure!
This one marks “his first large-scale sculptural intervention in New York City”.
 
These marbles sculptures were fabricated by the Hánhs – a Vietnamese family. Some of the most renowned Buddhist sculptures seen in temples are their art works.
 
Peter Regli is well-known for his public interventions around the world – a work that started back in 1996. We adore his disruptive, uncommon art works and how they interact with by-passers and the urban settings.
 
He explains:
I chose the snowman because of its Buddha-like nature. They appear briefly in the world, bring joy and evoke memories of childhood. Then, disappear again, melting away without complaint.
Lastly, we all know that New York City is one of the art capitals on this planet. So, if you’re all about culture and art experiences, let our experts cater the best places and events for you!
 
We have done projects with companies that bring clients to New York City and urge to impress. Let our Corporate Services experts organize the most memorable experiences for you! You’ll will impress!

If you’ve never heard of Giorgio Morandi, it’s ok, but you most likely have seen his work. We are going to tell you a little about the Modern Art by Giorgio Morandi.

He was born in Bologia, Italy. Morandi focused his entire career painting still life objects like vases, pots, bowls, extending into flowers and landscape. You might also see a hand full of self portraits too.

His art work is very simplistic, the earthy tones. This surely made him a visionary of the Minimalism that started post World War II, around the 1960’s and 70’s. He paints (and repaints), several times these objects, paying close attention to the light aspects.

“The exhibition focuses on the artist’s rarely seen works from the 1930s—the decade when Morandi reached full artistic maturity and developed his distinctive pictorial language.”

There are over 50 paintings, etchings and drawings being featured at the Center for Italian Modern Art, a nonprofit organization located on Broome Street.

During his life, he drew over 130 etchings and painted over 1,300 oil paintings. Surely a remarkable number.

These fascinating art works have not been seen in the U.S. for over half a century and are definitely a must-see!

Tickets can be bought online, through their website – they cost a symbolic $10.

If you love are and want to explore New York’s art world, our art experts are able to talk you on the best tours around the city, and upstate too. Let us know what you like, and we’ll be happy to arrange it all for you!

On the other hand, if you are a company and would like to arrange a cultural-art experience for your clients, or your team, let us know what you’re looking for.

Hours: Friday’s and Saturday’s at 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm

Location: 421 Broome Street, 4th Floor

The Creative Young Brazilian Community In NYC

Culture & Music Alessio Romano Michel Nasrallah

We contributed during 1 year for Glamour Brazil. This post was about the creative young Brazilian community in NYC.

See the original Portuguese version and below, the English version:

New York is known for many things. The food, the corporate madness, the great Broadway and Off Broadway shows, the incredible fashion world and uncontrollable consumption of tourists and New Yorkers.

The beauty of Central Park and the fantastic art world are unquestionable. Lastly, it’s also know an “incubator” for new, upcoming talents.

We share with you the story of some young folks that are making a difference here. Others are just starting out their promising career and they sure have an incredible work worth following.

Culture & Music Max Poglia Working

Max Poglia

The Brazilian with clear Italian descent (beginning by his name), Maximiliano Poglia, also known as Max, is a designer and lives in New York since 2009. Max has worked with the renowned and always crowded restaurant Buvette, that we love.

He has created a line of exclusive products for the Bedford Post – a charming hotel in Bedford – part of the Relais & Chateaux group. And, has collaborated with various New York brands like TheBKCircus, a man’s fashion brand.

Today he has launched his own product collection with stylish leather handbags. His handmade knives that are not made of stainless steel purposely to allow the product to age. Plus, the soft unique fleece blankets have no artificial coloring and beautiful leather details.

You can find his products at stores like 3×1 in Soho, Modern Anthology in Dumbo, the Gentry in Williamsburg, the Warm in Nolita, The Space NYC, in Bushwick and a few other places around town!

Culture & Music The Brazilian Johnsons Sitting

The Brazilian Johnsons

Berklee College of Music College, in Boston, is known for having huge music alumni stars like Diana Krall, Quincy Jones, John Mayer, Esperanza Spalding, Joey Kramer and Brad Whitford (both from Aerosmith), among many others!

A band named The Brazilian Johnsons was created by five Brazilians who studied together at Berklee and now live in Brooklyn, obviously. Michel Nasrallah, the vocalist and guitarist, André Vasconcelos rocks on the guitar, Bruno Esrubilsky hits the drums, Apoena Frota plays the bass and João Nogueira on the keyboard. All fantastic musicians!

Michel tells us that their – classic rock’n’roll – was inspired by bands like Rolling Stones, Beatles, Queen, Led Zepplin, Cold Chisel, Lynyrd Skynryd, AC / DC, just to list a few.

In December 2013 they released their first CD called “Howdy Duty” and made its debut with an exclusive show at Piano’s, located in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

The songs are amazing, with a very particular style, exclusive copyrights lyrics that speak of obstacles. It talks about difficulties encountered at the beginning of their careers. Also, they describe the challenges of being new in New York, numerous teachings, the experience of broken hearts and simply how life may be surprising.

The songs are for sale on iTunes! Here is the music video of one of their most successful songs:


Culture & Music Alessio Romano Band

Alessio Romano

This an Italian artist has several “gifts”. He’s a drummer, musical producer, audio engineer and also photographer. With all these different talents, Alessio Romano decided to open his own studio in Brooklyn in the beginning of 2014, called Studio42. There he can work with music, video and photography.

I’m personally a huge fan of his photography work. With spontaneous images and a perfect light, his pictures definitely surprise viewers with all the captured details and his critical eye!

Culture & Music Tali Ratzon and the Grind

Tali Ratzon

Last, but definitely not least, with an Israeli and American descent, the singer Tali Ratzon! She arrived in New York in 2009 chasing a dream!

A common story to hear in New York…

Tali says she’s “just a girl with a guitar,” but her music certainly does make everyone want to dance! She sings pop music, mixed with funk and bringing influences from Latin rhythms and reggae music, i.e. World Pop.

One of the songs I enjoy the most and sing by heart is “About to Pop”.

Take a look at her the music video:

So, you all have to agree, this guys are really going some awesome work around here, right!?
