in MiniHollywood, actors and passions are reduced to a sufficient accessible and anonymous. The blocks of solid colors are juxtaposed, like pieces of a puzzle. No nuances, no lighting effects, only the expression of the protagonists. The shape becomes more visual efficiency, is used to separate the image of the meanings, preserving only the pure image. The expression of the protagonists and plasma using a reduced color palette that gives unity to the whole of this contemporary creation committed to good humor.

Extracts of MiniHollywood

Irene Gras Cruz, art criticism
"*The pop art and graffiti are called essential post in designing BigNOW compositions, along with the design could not conceive of one without the other. Aesthetics that occurs in your creations is unique, when combined three elements such as art, film and advertising, so familiar and recognized by most of us. An accessible and unmistakable language, typical of globalization and consumption, where the world of advertising and media, promotes the style so characteristic of this artist. served the paradox, antithesis, metaphor, anaphora or similarity, is not just to produce beautiful images, but producing images that transcend the immediate and the record of film heritage of Almería* ".

María del mar Domínguez, curator
"*In these snapshots almost woodcut that BigNOW proposes, the seemingly festive mixed with the dark, and each character becomes a resounding slogan immortal always facing his destiny alone. MiniHollywood has music that smells bullet, and is obviate useless violent and sensual claim imposing the false kindness of pop. everything is in BigNOW iconic film in this city where each sequence lasts more than an instant, his works remind us that life is a film with epic pretensions , and we were so happy with the short monologues of the protagonists, perhaps because the really important things could be summed up in as little* ".

José Luis López Bretones, Art Center director Almería Museum
"*BigNOW, architect and multidisciplinary artist, has turned his sights on MiniHollywood series-the most recent one that has done-the last film in the province of Almeria, and has done so from a perspective consistent with their previous productions: that that mixes with a certain dose of irony complaint. Their language blatantly pop, playful and humorous efervescentemente not fail to note, however, contradictions and illusions who lived in the dark backgrounds of a golden age that left himself who came up become a shadow of what we were* ".

Juan Gabriel Garcia, Journalist and writer
"*The theoretical basis lies in BigNOW MiniHollywood of intertextuality. This is a concept applied to literary theory that can be adapted equally to film and studying the different relationships established between different movies.'s Famous quotes or winks using directors like Quentin Tarantino would be defined as intertextual relations, as in Mini-Hollywood have a bunch of them, all splashed with acid humor. icons is a sign of decontextualized, universal referents who have walked the same scenario: the landscape Almeria. decomposition of a film to its simplest expression and while its maximum essence generates an image full of symbolism* ".

Charles Bignon prepara la muestra 'MiniHollywood' con carteles de cine

Este proyecto se podrá ver desde agosto en la Casa del Cine de Almería durante seis meses

El artista Charles Bignon, afincado en Almería, lleva ya tiempo trabajando en nuevos proyectos. El proyecto artístico MiniHollywood se expondrá durante seis meses en la Casa del Cine a partir de agosto hasta febrero 2014. Luego se pretende llevar esta muestra a la Filmoteca de Andalucía con sede en Córdoba, París e incluso Nueva York. Se podrán ver 35 carteles de películas.

El proyecto consiste en exposiciones e intervenciones in situ en la distintas sedes internacionales que albergaran la muestra. Bignon ya cuenta con el apoyo de instituciones públicas y privadas, para abordar y realizar la primera muestra de la serie en la Casa del Cine de Almería. Se editarán carteles, catálogos-libros, postales, camisetas, serigrafías, obras en papel en edición limitada de los trabajos.

"En MiniHollywood, los actores y las pasiones se reducen a un elemento suficientemente accesible y anónimo. Los bloques de colores sólidos se yuxtaponen como piezas de un rompecabezas. No hay matices, no hay efectos de iluminación, sólo la expresión de los protagonistas. La forma adquiere una mayor eficiencia visual, se utiliza para separar la imagen de los significados, sólo para preservar la imagen pura. La expresión de los protagonistas se plasma usando una paleta cromática reducida que da unidad al conjunto de esta creación contemporánea comprometida con el buen humor", explica Bignon.

Luego hay que destacar la financiación de la muestra. "Se trata del primer proyecto almeriense de crowdfunding, micro-mecenazgo artístico. Se podrán realizar aportaciones de 5 a 350 euros, y se recompensara mediante obras. Es una innovadora manera de financiar dicho proyecto", dice Bignon.

José Luis López Bretones, director del Centro de Arte Museo de Almería, sostiene que "Bignon, arquitecto y artista multidisciplinar, ha vuelto su mirada en la serie Minihollywood -la más reciente de las que ha realizado- al pasado cinematográfico de la provincia de Almería; y lo ha hecho desde una perspectiva coherente con sus anteriores producciones: aquella que mezcla la ironía con ciertas dosis de denuncia. Su lenguaje descaradamente pop, efervescentemente lúdico y humorístico no deja de señalar, sin embargo, las contradicciones y los espejismos que habitaban en los oscuros fondos de una época dorada que lo mismo que llegó se marchó hasta convertirnos en sombra de lo que fuimos".

Bignon ya mostró la serie I don't love NY, desarrollada de 2008 a 2012 y expuesta en Almería, Cádiz, Alicante, Castellón, París. En esta serie se conjugan respiros de libertad creativa absorbidos por un continuo "savoir faire". Para el artista, MiniHollywood es una extensión del inicio de experimentación pictórica basada en la realidad-ficción desarrollado en I don't love NY.

#03 / Charles Bignon gana el concurso de diseño de la imagen corporativa del Festival "ALmería en Corto"

ALMERÍA, 1 Jul. (EUROPA PRESS) -

El presidente de la Diputación Provincial de Almería, Gabriel Amat, ha presentado este lunes la imagen del cartel con la que contará la XII edición del Festival Internacional de Cortometrajes 'Almería en Corto' y que se basa en una imagen de Elisabeth Taylor en su papel protagonista en 'Cleopatra' diseñada a través del estilo de arte pop mediante colores sólidos y cuyo "impacto" ha sido clave para la elección del jurado.

Según ha explicado el presidente en rueda de prensa, el cartel ganador diseñado por el francés afincado en Almería Charles Bignon se ha debatido con otros 59 competidores, si bien éste se ha caracterizado por escoger una temática singular frente al resto --la mayoría inspirados en el western-- que además coincide con el 50 aniversario del rodaje de 'Cleopatra', un film que recoge algunas localizaciones almerienses.
