Bruno Munari is an Italian contemporary artist from the 20st century. He was considered as an artist from the futurism movement, however, years by years he moved toward this art conception by including his humor and his lovely casualness in his creations. Painting, drawing, sculpting were his main activities, nevertheless, he was also a great designer, writer and illustrator. With Lucio Fontana, they lead the Italian artistic scene during the 50’s. This period was characterized by the economic boom that opened many new opportunities. Indeed, Munari and Fontana were the main figures of visual-operator that helped the industrial researches in Italy.
What do they have in common? This time, the link between these two personalities is not based on the culture, on the century or even on the nationality. They come from two different country with different values – even if we can consider Italy and Urkraine as Western countries. However, I found that Anna October collection is sincerely marked by Munari’s installations. In this example of Fashion & Art, we could take another artists, but he or she would have to be in the same artistic movement which is modernism. They both work on re-designing standards inspired by their own conception of fashion or art. Anna October’s collection is of course inspired by art from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, nevertheless, Munari’s work were quite ahead of its time. Thus, he influenced many artists from successive centuries.
