On 1st June we published a blog post dedicated to the Aurea Mediocritas series of Juan Manuel Molleví, an astonishing gallery of small invertebrates transformed into vulgar utensils with a baroque-Steampunk feeling.
This blog post included a micro-interview with Juan Manuel, who mentioned a new project: Bestiario de Aves.
– You have recently presented a new line of work influenced by this retrofuturism too, combining a modern look with rococo and Steampunk aesthetics. What should we expect from it?
– This new line, which I have named Bestiario de Aves, I think it has much to offer yet, I just fell in love when I saw the rapid acceptance it had as a result of working with my model Javier Gomez, so I plan to continue exploiting it. Following this “story” of the birds, which for the moment it is formed by a self portrait and Javier, I want to make it grow with a new addition, this time a girl, possibly trapped in a cage playing with some birds. Everything will follow a very trendy and elegant style mixed with classic Rococo voluptuousness.
We could not help but think that Decimononic’s jewelry would suit like a glove this new line of work… and you can judge by yourself today: this new image of the Bestiario de Aves gallery features our jewelry. We hope you like it as much as we do!
