Metallic People

Exquisite Photos of Dancers Photographed in Metallic Body Paint will Inspire You

Italian photographer Guido Argentini takes the human form to a whole new level with his photos of painted dancers.

Back in 1995, photographer Guido Argentini was inspired to photograph a model coated in silver body paint . Nearly twenty years and countless shoots later, Argentini has prepared a collection of this work in a new book titled ARGENTUM.

“I always felt that photography was too close to reality. Painting and sculpture allow you to be more abstract when working with the human figure. My love for dance and for sculpture inspired this series of photographs,” says Argentini.

Architecture

Here's the thing, I LOVE architecture. I can't believe almost 2 years ago, I left a 19 year career in design & construction, to become an invitation expert & owner of an event venue in downtown Elgin. Though I have no regrets of following my new creative passions, I really miss my 1st love, architecture. I've come up with the perfect solution of how I can combine my 1st love with my new ones; blog about them.

This new year, look forward to more reads on what truly inspires and tantalizes my creative senses, view fantastic visuals on architecture, interior designs and of course IJORERE The Invitation. Welcome to 2015!

Painting Illustrations

GRAND Monday IJORERE fans & followers! 2015 is sure to be a favorable year, simply have faith and remain optimistic. About 6 years ago I professed my desires of taking my stationery business to the next level. 2 years ago my dream came true. I envisioned an interchangeable space for all sorts of events and I must say, I'm so proud that my dreams came to pass. Ola la! IJORERE is a multipurpose event space for weddings, parties, showers, photo shoots, dancing socials and our very popular BYOB painting events, Rhythms, Art & Wine Nights aka RAW Nights

Patrons come from at far and near just to have a good time with friends to paint, drink, socialize, and listen to live music. It's so fulfilling to see people come and go and return again to my events. This is how I've always hoped it to be. The warm & inviting ambience I've created was worth every dollar.

Speaking of paintings, I found some cool illustrations while snoping around on IG. These very pretty water color illustrations is sure to get you inspired to paint with us at Ola la! Make sure you sign up for one or more of our upcoming RAW Nights socials and tell all your friends about this exciting upscale space in downtown Elgin.
