Mad Art

Where: Mollbrinks Konst, Uppsala What: Man Men (TV show) inspired art collection
Swedish artist Mats Åkerman‘s latest art collection is featured at the Mollbrinks gallery Uppsala. Åkerman was inspired by critically acclaimed American TV series Mad Men and is a longtime fan of the show . Hence a more befitting title would have been Mad Art.

The detail in Åkerman’s work reminds one of Mad Style by Tom and Lorenzo, which is a unique take on TV reviews. In Mad Style the two famed fashion bloggers focus on the costuming and art direction of each episodes. They hypothesize why creator Matthew Weiner, the art direction team and costume designer Janie Bryant made those particular choices. And what does it all mean for the characters and the storyline. It is a fantastic collection of articles for TV/film fans and students who want to have a unique insight about the importance of consuming and art direction.
