Arrivals offers: “hot pink and attitude” and promises to farewell “empty walls, crazy price tags and mass-produced art.” The website is a bright pink celebration of a variety of artists and mediums, an online bazaar of up and coming talent, readily available with the click of a Paypal transaction.
Arrivals detracts from the monotony of bad Internet art, offering alternatives such as ‘Six Pack Special Edition’ and a Regina George tinted male torso by Emilie Mottet. The site is interactive, allowing the viewer to spin and move the artworks around, a tangible essence to an otherwise static experience.
The range of artworks on the site are as diverse as they are inspiring, mediums ranging from watercolour to collage to digital mixed media works. Arrivals encourages us to remove ourselves from the tedium of day to day life and explore the creativity within ourselves and our hidden talents. Photography by Philipp Gallon provides a glimpse into the misty cityscape of Cairo, and Alina Vergano tells secrets with her black and white illustrations.
No matter your taste, background, pleasure or secret desires, Arrivals has something for you.
