FAME festival è morto
Come siete eravamo. come film porno siamo sarete, sempre peggio e tardi

FAME festival is dead
How you are we were. how we are you will be. always too late though

what you’ll read below is the old text

FAME(eng)
the state or quality video sesso of being widely honored and acclaimed,favorable public reputation (ita = fama successo)

FAME(ita)
bisogno molesto di mangiare, carestia, grande miseria, grande desiderio (eng = starvation, hunger)

Fifth edition for Studiocromie’s summer festival !

here’s the text, it’s the same from the first year, if you have it says it all and still, you stupid journalists cant write a decent article!

In order to avoid rhetorical somersaults of the case, Studiocromie is pleased to announce FAME festival for what it is: the meeting of a dozen international artists in a small italian centre, Grottaglie.

The city is famous for its ancient ceramics tradition and there’s a whole area exclusively dealing with ceramics production.

FAME wants to be a new point of view on the original structure of this quarter and the city. While politicians and institutions only care about their personal interests, we’d like to give back to the town and its original asset the light they deserves.

The name of the event, FAME, refers to the ironic difference of meaning of the word itself between Italian and English. If in Italian FAME means hunger, in English is FAME, understood as honour and success status, things that Italy can only have exactly a great hunger.

The idea is to host the artists for variable length of time (from 1 to 4 weeks) and to offer them the cooperation of the local artisans for the production of pottery works and limited edition prints.

Furthermore the artists will have at their disposal several walls to paint around the city, in order to upgrade a few areas which are aesthetically depressed.

At the end of their stay, everything created, including new original artworks, screenprints and ceramic pieces made with the collaboration of local artisians will be showcased in a final group show.
it will take place in one of the most ancient ceramics workshop of the area, the opening is set to be on the 25th of september.

More importantly, it has to be said, the festival is entirely financed and curated by Studiocromie, wich is a one-man (+ his parents) screenprinting studio, without any kind of sponsorship from external sources.

bombocloth!

intervista

leaving Jamaica was as bad as expected, especially considering that we had to split up and we’re both in cold places now.. anyway, i also wanted to show you guys what MOMO has been painting in the last week on the island

a beautiful piece on the beach between montego bay and falmouth

for those of you that dont know anything about it, DARMON is a new project, it will culminate in the first solo show by MOMO in europe. ill post more news soon!

we loved kingston! they all say that it’s a dangerous place, a lot of shooting and crazy shit, that’s pretty much all you hear about the city when you travel trough jamaica but all we’ve seen there was great people and nice places.

it has to be said tough, we’ve been very lucky to meet melinda and her lovely friends at Roktowa, this might be the reason we felt so much at home as they were extremely helpful to us.
we got to paint this massive wall right outside the main market downtown

big news is that we’re in Cuba now, and as you probably know (and i didnt) it’s very hard to find internet connections down here, i’ll try to keep you all posted anyway!

Swoon!
