Plantando o Futuro em Wynwood!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Quando tenho amigos visitando Miami, o programa imperdível é leva-los a Wynwood, uma área urbana revitalizada, repleta de galerias de arte, grafite, restaurantes e lojas independentes.  Entre as lojas, a que ousa  sonhar mais alto é a da designer industrial argentina Paloma Teppa, e se chama, poeticamente, “Plant the Future.”

O mundo de Paloma é magico, verde e tem muitas estórias para contar. A artista, ex-estilista da MTV, utiliza plantas e esculturas de gesso como sustentável mídia de expressão. Com  plantas suculentas e orquídeas de todos os tipos, ela produz inusitados terrários, micro-jardins e até mesmo colares e pulseiras.  Muitos de suas  criações  são embriagadas  em lúdico misticismo e vivem em um universo paralelo onde cavalos brancos, paralisados meio ao trote, possuem cristas verdes e coelhos brincam com panteras meio a micro-selvas de cactus.

Paloma colabora com vários artistas, fotógrafos e cinematógrafos locais e o resultado é sempre surpreende…. asssita este curta:

[Get Lost in Translation at Your Own: Plant the Future in Wynwood]

When I have friends visiting Miami, one must-do outing is a visit to Wynwood, a revitalized urban area, full of art galleries, graffiti, restaurants and independent shops. Among the stores, one that  dares to dream higher is the slick plant shop that belongs to argentine industrial designer Paloma Teppa. The store is called, poetically, “Plant the Future.”

Paloma’s world is magic, green and has many stories to tell. The artist, a former stylist for MTV, uses plants and plaster sculptures as a sustainable medium for artistic arrangements. The artist produces unusual terrariums, micro-gardens and even necklaces and bracelets with succulents and orchids of all kinds. Many of her pieces are soaked in a playful mix of mysticism and fairy tale. It is a world where white horses, paralyzed in the middle of a stride, have green crests and tiny fawns and rabbits play along panthers in micro cactus jungles.

Paloma collaborates with various artists, photographers and cinematographers and the result is always surprising …. check out the short movie!
