Description by Federico Babina:
ARCHIST is a playful interpretation of the expressive language and aesthetic of some of the most popular artists. I enjoyed creating 27 “paintingsprojects” which represented 27 different artists.
There is a Symbiotic Relationship an implicit partnership between Architecture and Art, different art branches meet in many fields. Art and architecture are disciplines that speak and lightly touch each other, the definition and function of the architecture are changing constantly with the development of contemporary art. In this exercise of style I took pleasure imagining architecture steeped of art, designed and constructed through the interpretation of an artist’s language. Art, architecture and sculpture are historically linked by an unbreakable thread, we find examples of paintings and sculptures having a direct influence on architectural design.
It is easy to find the art hidden behind an architectural shape or see reflected a geometry of a building painted on a canvas. It is impossible to conceive of the history of art in exclusion from that of architecture. Painting sculpture and architecture have always been complementary disciplines that influence each other and feed to grow and develop along common paths. A sculpture is like a micro-architecture, a facade can become like a painted canvas and a building can be shaped as in the hands of a skilled sculptor. I like finding the hidden architecture in parallel universes, in this sense, the illustration helps me to explore alternative languages. I tried to imagine how it would have been a house designed by Dalí or a museum designed by Miró. These images represent an imaginary and imagined world of shapes that uses the brush to paint architecture.
