MKTG Presents: Pairings // An Art x Music Experience

with one comment

pairings1

Last week, MKTG New York held our first Pairings // An Art x Music Experience, an exclusive series promoting creative artists and cultural inspiration. Our launch event featured art by Ralph Miller and music by DJ Zev, who spun beats among our office’s chic, pop art-infused space- a fitting backdrop as MKTGers and Dentsu Aegis Network partners sipped Diageo brand cocktails.

Growing up in Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, Ralph Miller was influenced by Central American and Caribbean Art. For the past 30 years, Ralph has created cutting-edge experiential media and attractions. DJ Zev, a native of Brooklyn, New York, has spun at some of the most recognized clubs and events around the world; and for celebrities and brands such as Nick Cannon, Fergie, Eva Mendes, Red Bull, MTV, Porsche, Macy’s and Disney.

There’s a Great Mural to This Story

The Jose Cuervo Tradicional Mural Project is all about honoring Hispanic art and culture here in the US. But last month the biggest honor of them all went to our winning muralist — Adriana Garcia of San Antonio, Texas.

Launched in August 2012, the Mural Project culled 10 artists representing 10 US states from a vast canvas of applicants. The 10 finalists were then asked to create a 5x10ft mural that brought to life their particular vision of a better world for their city. The winner was to be selected by vote, so since October MKTG INC has hosted gallery events in each artist’s city, allowing them to showcase previous works and gain support for the voting phase of the program. Fans voted for their favorite piece on the Jose Cuervo Tradicional Facebook page.

On April 17, the writing was on the wall for winner Adriana, who was awarded $15,000 for herself and $15,000 for her selected nonprofit, the San Antonio arts organization Centro Cultural Aztlan. More than 200 guests came out to support Adriana’s work in a fun and inspiring rewards ceremony. “Felicitaciones” to Adriana!

A Picture is Worth 23 Chromosomes…

Is it possible to make your art anymore personal? DNA11 thinks so.
The company launched in 2005 and is making it easy for anyone to take a little of themselves and make a truly customized piece of art. Maybe you aren’t interested in your genome being displayed, but what about your pets? DNA11, like many other brands, has discovered that consumers are moving to more individual, customized experiences.
This isn’t your $25 stock image from Ikea though. A personalized DNA11 print might cost cost anywhere from $100-$1000. A custom DNA waterfall went for $25,000.
So what do you think? Will you let them prick your finger?

Don’t expect IKEA prices as this isn’t stock imagery.  A personalized DNA11 print might cost cost anywhere from $100-$1000. A custom DNA waterfall went for $25,000.

So what do you think? Will you let them prick your finger?

Words of Encouragement Before the Weekend

without comments

I apologize I haven’t gotten this blog post out earlier. You see, I’m an Art Director and have quite a bit of projects on my plate. And I’m looking for motivation any place I can get it.

With the witty work from copywriters Will Benham and Chris Baker, I can do just that – find superlative encouragement to push through my work and have it on the client’s desk before lunchtime…. As soon as I stop playing around on their site.

Have an encouraging weekend!

Surf’s Up

While most eyes will be on Yankee Stadium in October, earlier this fall Nike’s Bowery Stadium played host to Dark Sun, an exhibition by photographer Ari Marcopoulos. For two weeks, the MKTG-designed space was adorned with black and white pictures of New York’s burgeoning surf scene and wave-shaped sculptures that doubled as skate ramps.

Check out this Cool Hunting post for more details on Marcopoulos and a full write-up on the installation.

Calling all gamers of the last 40 years. Yes, even those of you who are still playing Pong.

Good news…video game art is finally being recognized as a legitimate art form. How legit? There’s going to be an exhibit at the Smithsonian.

The best part?  You get to vote for which games make it into the exhibit. So as Cee Lo would say, are you more Xbox, or more Atari? We’re more Nintendo. Check our client list.

Think your commute is bad? Have a look at the poor sods on this Tokyo commuter rail. Noted photographer Michael Wolf’s new series, Tokyo Compression, captures Tokyo commuters on their way to work — pressed flush against the windows of their packed subway cars. Even the glass sweats.

Vans is the man when it comes to brand. To promote their new Yo Gabba Gabba shoe collection, Vans has partnered with the hip kids’ show to produce a series of videos exploring the totally logical link between action sports and giant-sized bright-red alien animals with one eye.

The videos showcase the Gabba Land characters’ mad motocross, skateboard, surf and BMX skills as they bring it alongside pro athletes like Alex Knost and Alistair Whitton. Music by everyone from Devo to the Dragons. First up is Muno exploring LA on a skateboard, in homage to the iconic Bones Brigade Video Show. Want more? Get it here on the Vans microsite.
