All things Art & Design

Seems like IKEA are really shaking things up this year. In addition to the previously announced TV set, they’re also going to release a digital camera made of cardboard called Knäppa (“Snap”). It’ll hold 40 photographs at a time and plugs directly into your USB port. While it’s not the prettiest camera the world has ever seen, I do love the idea of a screen-less digital camera that brings people back to the wait-and-see days of film.

This is great.

Just when we thought IKEA couldn’t get any better!

Artist Submission: Alina Vergnano


Artist, illustrator, animator and sometimes printmaker born 25 years ago in Torino, Italy and currently living in Copenhagen, Denmark, our latest Artist Submission features the stellar work of Alina Vergnano


When did you first get into illustration?

I have always been a kinda shy person, I din’t like to talk too much… when I was a teen I was writing poems, but then I discovered that I was better in expressing my thoughts with drawings more then with words. 

Then, after high school, I got this scholarship to study illustration and there I found the perfect balance between words and images. I still like to title my artwork and sometimes to include some words in my artworks. 


How you would you describe your style and aesthetic?

My drawings are normally very clean, a lot of black and white and empty spaces. My characters float into a silent and suspended atmosphere,  poetic and mysterious at the same time.



What are some of your major influences?

A lot of things influences my work, starting from the works of other artists I admire, their stories or their personality. But for the content of my drawing the main inspiration comes from observing other people, I like to dig into emotions and stories and try to translate them in drawings. 


If you could work or collaborate with any artist, who would it be?

Too many! I really hope one day to get good enough to have the actual chance to collaborate with at least one that is on my long list of art-heroes.


My favourite book is… Tons of books have crossed my night table and more then a few got really stuck into my heart. I’ve just finish to read “Just Kids” by Patti Smith, and I found it really moving, poetic and inspiring. I also have shelves full of art books and also there I have my favourite ones. Among all “In the sweet bye bye”, a beautiful hard-covered book about Margaret Kilgallen, who is a great inspiration for my work. 

Right now I’m listening to… People talking in finnish while I am writing this interview sitting at the Sarjakuvafestivaalit Comic Festival in Helsinki behind the table of Thaumatropical the small editorial project I am running with my boyfriend. 

The most delicious thing is… Gelato ! 

Jay-Z or Kanye? I’m not really into multi millionaire hip hop guys…

At the end of a long day, I like to unwind by…  A beer with friends or a night on the couch with a good movie (or a crappy tv-series episode) and a bowl of chips depending on how cold it is outside…weather in Sweden can make you really lazy sometimes!
