Collection – Fly me to the moon
I don’t deserve WSJ by Dot Pigeon. Sitting on a Joe Colombo Elda chair while reading the WSJ. I know I don’t deserve to be featured by it and in fact I am not.
As I always say, art must speak the language of the times we are living in. The goal of this drop is just that, to crystallize a moment, to speak the language of our community, to highlight the idioms, attitudes and behaviors of those who are part of it.
It is from here that “Fly me to the moon” was born.
The themes explored by each artwork are, in my way, the ones we discuss every day on Discord, Twitter and Reddit. There is the “bubble”, there are the $ 1 global bids, there are blue chip artists and so on. There are also some Easter eggs that only some communities aficionados will find. Other artworks instead are focused purely on me, on my emotions and on what I want to scream at the world.
The visually recurring theme is that of space, the houses in which the riot guy acts have furnitures and design pieces inside them ranging from the 60s and 70s: the years in which space navigation was predominant.
Among the many objects and furnishings, you will find the ‘Ufo’ dining table designed by Luigi Saccardo, ‘Le Témoin’ by Man Ray, the coffee table ‘Shilling’ by Giovanni Ausenda & Guido Baldi Grossi, the lamp ‘Pillola’ by Cesare Casati and Emanuele Ponzio, the ‘Boomerang desk’ by Maurice Calka, the ‘Atollo’ lamp by Vico Magistretti, the armchair ‘Elda’ by Joe Colombo and so on.
DotPigeon was born and raised in Milan and is an advertising art director and self taught artist. DotPigeon started their art path in 2017 opening the Instagram page DotPigeon. DotPigeon is represented by Plan X Art Gallery.
As usual, a incommensurable thank you, to all the amazing artists that gave me the permission to include their artworks into mine: Fvckrender, Kidmograph, Marc Tudisco, Megs.io, Monstercat, Nois7, Smeccea, Space Yacht, Ted Chin, Tom Yoo, Vantage and Victor Mosquera.
But also a big thank you to those who didn’t, you were a source of inspiration too.
