According to the press release issued by the Cannes Film Festival :
“Fifty years after her death, Marilyn Monroe remains on of the major figures of the cinema world and an eternal reference of grace, mystery and seduction”
The choice of this photo over another, whereas there are so many pictures of the famous blond hair girl, comes from the fact that this photo was taken in a moment of privacy. Here, mythology meets reality : Marylin celebrated a birthday, tha could be Canne Film Festival’s one. It entrances uswith a gesture that is promise of a kiss-shaped blow.
This meeting between the perfect essence of glamour and the temple, which is the Festival, is an idea of simplicity and elegance.
The poster’s realization has been entrusted to Bronx Agency in Paris, which worked from of the actress made by Otto L. Bettman.
I can’t afford to love NY (pictured below) is a great piece of art work by the artist Mariano of Argentinean descent. When shopping at the Bryant Park holiday shops a couple of months I was so impressed with this piece of art. Everything else in the shops looked so generic it was like walking through a mall, which was very disheartening for me. I loved going to the holiday shops looking for unique and special things, and I almost walked out thinking there were no special shops left thankfully my eye caught Mariano’s work right before I walked out of the shops and he proved me wrong. His work is sort of pop art meets NY meets graffiti (NY isn’t graffiti anymore). Pictured are some of my favorite pieces. Mariano also does custom pieces. I really want one like the Marilyn Monroe one but with Dame Elizabeth Taylor emphasizing of course her eyes! And as conceited as it may sound I want one of myself also like Marilyn Monroe’s emphasizing my red lips. It was such a wonderful find and I plan on purchasing some pieces real soon. Mariano lives in Brooklyn you can get in contact with him and or purchase his works either through his Etsy or Facebook pages.
