works by Romanian duo SWARTE: Corina Olaru and Manuela Vulpescu - "Swarte is an open source of imagination which transforms contemporary topics into fine art. While generating feelings, we are trying to connect the world to a large amount of ideas and visions, which are supposed to make people reconsider themselves – this time in a colorful, provocative and intriguing manner. As we are creating stories about the day of tomorrow we believe that one can indulge himself to recognize his own core in one of our works and see it as an eclectic prolongation of his inner thoughts."
Throughout history and popular culture, we have come to associate specific looks and styles with certain people. One example of such trademarks is eyewear.
In a personal project entitled Famous Eyeglasses, freelance web designer Federico Mauro put together a series of posters featuring solely the glasses on a plain background. The minimalist artwork features basic pairs of glasses and sunglasses worn by many stars across the decades, including Elton John, Elvis Presley, The Blues Brothers, Sofia Loren, and Malcolm X.
From colorful heart-shaped shades to pointy horn-rimmed spectacles, the notable objects illustrate a wide variety of dispositions and personal preferences. As fashion trends come and go, it’s incredible to see how the eclectic choices of famous people across the globe have come to define personalities as well as certain generations.
