YARD KOALA work in progress

In Milan, Italy, alongside Via Ripamonti area, in front of Fondazione Prada, King Koala has found a huge place to plant the eucalyptus and thus make its physical yard.
It is an abandoned former print shop that will be used for a creative space, artistic production and editorial experimentation. In the heart of Milan, away from the mess, the endangered koalas will have their kingdom.
We have a lot of printing material, paints, paper, dies, machinery still working and lots of merchandising at very low prices. All this serves to finance a good cause for koalas. If you want to give us an eye and to know the space write us

cinque anelli | cinque colori | cinque idee

Demoni e dee, amori e scopate,
poesia della violenza.

La sua lotta è una tempesta calma che si infrange sulle pagine dei suoi quaderni, tra pulsioni, passioni ricordi di un passato violento e di un presente che esplode nel suo istante, raccolto da una foto, incarnato nella colla e nella pagina di una memoria, legato insieme con punti di sutura. Demoni e dee, amori e scopate, poesia della violenza.

Luca Mata hangs on
Casa di Ringhiera

Preparing Composition Books

The paradox is the technique, as Sun Tsu said, and Luca Mata writes about his art of artistic war, in a pure and intimate way. He lives chasing a balance, has an Hagakure in himself who forced him past the mere photography, and pushed him to paste, impress, sew and print the chaotic world of his imagination, that blends in with reality as it if was a vivid dream. An artistic drift that develops in five colors, five concepts, five emotions that are clean but yet chaotic. A fight, a battle that smells of tobacco and debris of emotions, Luca Mata, like Miyamoto Musashi, writes his diary, takes notes, perfects them and binds together his “five rings”.
