Discover “Asantassi Creations” : Illustrations and Handcrafted Jewelry

Just Color is pleased to welcome a new partner artist: Isabelle, creator of Asantassi Creations.

At the same time illustrator and creator of artisan jewelry, she tells us about her two passions :

Hooked to my pencils since my childhood, I always loved artistic activities. It was for me a means of expression. A way to share my world, inspired by video games, heroic fantasy and science fiction movies and books.

During my engineering studies, I took every moment of freedom to draw. Motivated by drawing, painting, and other creative activities, I always learned as a self-taught person to devote myself to my passions. It’s quite naturally that I decided to change my career path, into creating my handmade jewellery and illustrations business.

Michael Jackson – On the Wall : a Royal & Pop exhibition in Paris

Grand Palais, Paris, France

We had the honor to visit of the exhibition Michael Jackson – On the Wall held at the Grand Palais in Paris, France, from November 2018 to February 2019.

This exhibition, originally installed at the National Portrait Gallery in London, aimed to show the influence of the King of Pop on Contemporary Art through works by around 40 famous artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Michael Jackson was above all an outstanding musician / singer / dancer, with a considerable career and international fame, but because of the unique image he has shaped over the years, he has created a myth which has necessarily been a source of inspiration for some artists, starting with the greatest representatives of Pop Art: Andy Warhol, Keith Haring or Jean Michel Basquiat.

The new Mona Lisa ?

These creations explore the complexity of
this artist, both in terms of personality and his artistic musical and choreographic choices and how he
dialogue with social and cultural issues
and policies of his time.

Vanessa Desclaux, Associate Curator of the exhibition

The works presented in this exhibition date, for the older ones, from the 70s, when Michael was still performing with his brothers in the group of Jackson 5 (later renamed The Jacksons). The most recent have been created several years after his tragic death (June 25, 2009) which shows that the myth is alive and well beyond the scope of music …

“Keep Calm and …” : 20 New exclusive Coloring pages

Do you know this famous poster saying Keep Calm and Carry on, in big white letters on a red background, with a pretty crown ?

Here is the explanation of its origin, according to Wikipedia :

The original 1939 Keep Calm and Carry On poster
Keep Calm and Carry On is a motivational poster produced by the British government in 1939 in preparation for World War II. The poster was intended to raise the morale of the British public, threatened with widely predicted mass air attacks on major cities.[1][2] Although 2.45 million copies were printed, and although the Blitz did in fact take place, the poster was hardly ever publicly displayed and was little known until a copy was rediscovered in 2000 at Barter Books, a bookshop in Alnwick. It has since been re-issued by a number of private companies, and has been used as the decorative theme for a range of products.

We often find this poster with the message and the design totally transformed … It goes from philosophical messages related to Personal Development (Be unique, Believe in your dreams, Go forward, etc …), to messages including references to popular culture and Internet “memes” (Star Wars, Unicorns, Cats …).

We decided to create our own “Keep Calm and …” posters, with some messages that seemed to be inspiring, accompanied by original and simple visuals. Of course, all these designs can be … coloured !

Here are some examples of messages you can now color :

  • Keep Calm and Believe in your Dreams
  • Keep Calm and Be unique
  • Keep Calm and Eat Sweets
  • Keep Calm and Always Smile

You will find these new colorings in this gallery.
