Graphic Contemporary Art  By Massimo Colonna

If you're a purest minimalist and love contemporary graphic art then Massimo Colonna’s new work will make your feet tingle with excitement. The stark simple compositions have a slight modernist 1940s and 50s aesthetic, using classic architectural references and an almost zen-like approach to the composition. This is then complimented with a quirky sense of suspended motion. The presence of the feather-light solitary balloon, the bouncing basketball or the paper planes flying in formation all create a mesmerising sense of tension, particularly when they are set against their static surrounds. It's beautiful, simple and contemplative.

If you're feeling indulgent you can even purchase them from The Cool Hunter.

This incredible home designed by Saota Architects is situated just above the shoreline of the Benguela Cove Wine Estate in the Overberg region in South Africa.
