“ARCHIST is a playful interpretation of the expressive language and aesthetic of some of the most popular artists. I enjoyed creating 27 “paintingsprojects” which represented 27 different artists.” – Federico Babina
Italian architect and illustrator Federico Babina’s new collection Archist reinterprets iconic works from artists such as Piet Mondrian, Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Marcel Duchamp and more, transforming them into cross-sectional drawing of buildings. Babina’s work aims to explore the ‘interaction’ between architecture and art.
“Art and architecture are disciplines that speak and lightly touch each other,” says Babina. “The definition and function of architecture is changing constantly with the development of contemporary art.”
“A sculpture is like a micro-architecture, a facade can become like a painted canvas and a building can be shaped as in the hands of a skilled sculptor“
“Painting, sculpture and architecture have always been complementary disciplines that influence each other and grow and develop among common paths“
