COMBO x Moleskine Installation by Paolo ‘Zero-T’ Capezzuoli


Il team di COMBO esce con il video della recente collaborazione con Moleskine. Si tratta del making of dell’istallazione dal titolo “Ink Smoke Over Stapled Notes”, realizzata dall’artista Paolo “Zero-T” Capezzuoli. In pratica sono state inchiodate 56 Moleskine customizzate Combo su una serie di tavole in legno riciclato. Quindi, dopo una bella mano di gesso acrilico, l’artista ha realizzato l’artwork utilizzando marker, spray ed inchiostro da calligrafico giapponese. Sicuramente particolare l’utilizzo delle Moleskine come supporto artistico, spiegato dallo stesso Zero-T con queste parole:

“Any given surface can be reenvisioned and adapted from its original and primary form, creating fresh canvas possibilities, those that expand both in dimension and impact. I think the Moleskine notebooks I used in this piece, multiplied beyond its daily function in the personal sense, show a great example of this concept at work”

Italian brand COMBO comes out with the follow-up of its collaboration with Moleskine. The video is a presentation of the work entitled “INK SMOKE OVER NOTES STAPLED” by artist and art director Paolo “Zero-T” Capezzuoli. An installation made of 54 notebooks COMBO X Moleskine applied on a series of recycled wooden planks trough an air pistol. Paolo’s project proposes a new way to read the classic concept of white canvas. This becomes part of the message itself ceasing to merely be an empty and meaningless space. The artist describes his interpretation stating:

“Any given surface can be reenvisioned and adapted from its original and primary form, creating fresh canvas possibilities, those that expand both in dimension and impact. I think the Moleskine notebooks I used in this piece, multiplied beyond its daily function in the personal sense, show a great example of this concept at work”.

Surface of the piece of art was firstly covered up with acrylic plaster and then painted in “tecnica mista” using “shodō” ink, markers and spray. Check out the video below.
