1. Ricardo Rousselot is a designer and calligrapher born in 1936, at "El Chaco", Argentina. After several years living and working in Chicago and a few more at Buenos Aires, he was seduced by Barcelona, the modernism, the sea, the mountains… And that was 38 years ago. This documentary talks about how ink as the path, never ends if it's full of passion and love. This is the story of a restless pen that travels between the purity of art and it's industrial application ... as bluesmen sing, "I've got calligraphy".

  2. Posiblemente sea cierto. Las definiciones clausuran y suspenden el desarrollo de una disciplina, un período histórico o una corriente artística. Pero al mismo tiempo, cumplen una función imprescindible en el recorrido del conocimiento, en las formas en que éste se manifiesta y se resignifica.

    Asimismo, las definiciones son muy generosas, inclusive nos dan herramientas para cuestionarlas, contradecirlas y someterlas a la potencia autorreflexiva de la crítica. Construir un futuro distinto sería prácticamente imposible sin dar cuenta de esta tensión al momento de formular una hipótesis.

    Sobre el desafío de profundizar el conocimiento partiendo de una definición trata este documental.

    This the official trailer for SIGN PAINTERS a documentary by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon. For information regarding screenings, and other news please visit signpaintersfilm.com

    About the project...

    There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our landscape. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade.

    In 2010 Directors Faythe Levine and Sam Macon, with Cinematographer Travis Auclair, began documenting these dedicated practitioners, their time-honored methods, and their appreciation for quality and craftsmanship. Sign Painters, the first anecdotal history of the craft, features the stories of more than two dozen sign painters working in cities throughout the United States. The documentary and book profiles sign painters young and old, from the new vanguard working solo to collaborative shops such as San Francisco’s New Bohemia Signs and New York’s Colossal Media’s Sky High Murals.

    The book published by Princeton Architectural Press in November 2012 features a foreword by legendary artist (and former sign painter) Ed Ruscha. We encourage you to pick up a copy at your local book shop, or directly from Princeton Architectural Press - http://goo.gl/aTZLq
