Andrea Mastrovito

Dividing his time between Italy and New York, his artistic path snakes through a kind of re-invention of painting where painting is no longer seen as the chromatic covering of a surface or as the simple act of painting but it becomes the constructive part of the artwork itself, disappearing behind the simple gesture like paper cutting (which replaces the brushstroke) which then re-emerge in his installations.

Frozen Peas Ice Cube Mould

 photo 1_zpsf347bc66.jpg  photo 2_zps96955136.jpg Make Giant Ice Balls in your home freezer. Mother nature provided the perfect design to capture water in spheres: Peas in a pod (Edamame in Japan). Spherical ice cubes look extra-cool and keep your drink extra-cold, for longer. Spherical ice melts 80% slower than cube shaped ice, so they won't water down your drink as quick. The ice tray stays upright when filled to prevent spilling. Once frozen squeeze ice out of the mould into your drink. Buy here.  photo 4_zps0b5946e1.jpg  photo 3_zps62c98e71.jpg
