Merging the boundaries between music and art, Lobster and Pearls reimagines this century's hit songs through illustration. Fascinated by Wim Wenders's collection of polaroids L&P was inspired to explore how the two most nostalgic artefacts of the 90s era - mix tape and polaroid - can sit together.

About

Merging the boundaries between music and art, Lobster and Pearls reimagines this century's hit songs through illustration. Fascinated by Wim Wenders's collection of polaroids L&P was inspired to explore how the two most nostalgic artefacts of the 90s era - mix tape and polaroid - can sit together. Through her work, the artist explores what makes them the perfect mementos. 

A cassette filled with carefully selected songs that one created for themselves, a BFF or a high school crush, if played today without doubt would bring the memories of the day it was first listened to. A polaroid in the age where, thanks to social media and a generation of over sharers, photography has become over saturated. To have and to hold a polaroid picture that cannot be 're-posted' is something quite unique. It is all about capturing a moment in time.

Lobster and Pearls, aka Giorgia Carlini, is an up-and-coming Italian visual artist, based in London. Her work primarily covers illustration, but also extends into design  as well as, most recently, bespoke tattoos. L&P is inspired by a vast array of influences - from her studies in art to her everyday interest in all that is contemporary, in particular fashion.
