Some news about our artists.
We love the talents we publish and we’re proud to have been there at one moment to help their career, but even more, we like to share about how they are doing now to keep the link between the artists and their supporters.
Our last book, [PROOF] by the Chinese artist 9mouth has reached in less than one month the box office of our sales. It was so fast that we are still amazed by the popularity of the artist. We organized an official presentation in October.
We (tardily, regarding to the success of early sales) organized an official presentation of the new book with the collaboration of YAN BOOKS, the bookstore where we launched our first book back in years. At this event, the artist introduced the story of the PROOF project which he started in 2015, accompanying his lecture with memorable pictures of the various thermal printers, several exhibitions archives in China and abroad, and personal notebooks documenting the evolution of the PROOF project until now. A quick question/answer session followed the presentation.
The delighted audience seized the opportunity to take selfies with the artist, to chat directly in a colloquial way and to get their copies receiving a special dedication and signature. Then, it was time for the visitors to be rewarded with an Italian assortment of pastries and selected drinks, including fine -awarded- red and white wines from France, Spain and Germany.
One of his last body of collaborative work “THE SHADE PROMISES” has already capture the attention of various media from the photography community. A project about Ethiopia’s modern coffee identity struggling with deforestation and collaborating with insetting companies.
