Showcase: Alberto Giacometti

Alberto Giacometti, one of the most important sculptors of the 20th century, was influenced by artistic styles such as Cubism and Surrealism. Philosophical questions about the human condition, as well as existential and phenomenological debates played a significant role in his work. Around 1935 he gave up on his Surrealistic influences in order to pursue a more deepened analysis of figurative compositions.

First Post

irevuo motto

Hi everyone,

This is irevuo’s first post. I know that for a lot of bloggers, the first post is something to be afraid of. Maybe because first impressions matter, maybe because starting with the right foot matters. Who knows.

The thing is, we’re not afraid. Excited, yes. But we’re not afraid. Not about this first post, not about all the others that will follow.

So, yeah, the website is in a sort of beta stage. We still got work to do, but we also need people to test the different functions of the website, to see what works and what doesn’t. We also want to make sure that the current setup can handle a bit of traffic.

For now, you can setup an account, either by using one of your social media accounts or registering here. You can add a profile picture, tells us a bit about yourself, upload pictures, or get to meet other users on the forum.

We’ll post mostly art related news for a couple of days, after which we’ll start adding interviews, reviews, articles, and other cool stuff.

Have a nice day,

team irevuo
