_We are MangoRed

WELCOME TO THE NEW mangoBLOG.

Our healthy crew is composed of photographers, illustrators, layout artists who are just as passionate about our work as the two of us. We are comfortably and chummily left-of-center. We have to confess that we’ve never been to art schools nor earned a major design degree…coz despite its pluses, we reckon this isn’t for everyone..let alone for us. In our case, the real world is the best course.

Our vision is based on principles of openness, directness, irreverence, democracy and a dislike of institutions and pretensions.

We’re always looking for the culturally relevant work and staying current with the hive mind. It’s intuitive, a lot of it. We think it’s just experiencing how far you can keep your mind open on a daily basis, and paying attention.

We’d like to describe our work as a tickle in your brain. It’s not just the quality of the idea, it’s the quality of the execution, the finish. the unique spin in colors, the lines, perspective..when these elements align, they create a visual perfume.

YOU WILL HEAR THUNDER
AND REMEMBER ME,AND THINK:
SHE WANTED STORMS
.
The rim of  sky will be the color of hard crimson,
& your heart, as it was then,
WILL BE ON FIRE.

“My friend walks soft as a weaving on the wind
He backlights my dreams
He has built altars beside my bed
I awake in the smell of his hair & cannot remember
HIS NAME . OR MY OWN
.”[2]

_ you are the only being before whom I am not distressed by my own silences. YOU HAVE A VEHEMENT SILENCE, one feels it is charged with essences,
CHRISTIAN & MELISSA-19c

_it is a strangely alive silence, like a trap open over a well, from which one can hear the secret murmur of the earth itself. “[3]

“Close your mouth, block off your senses
blunt your sharpness, untie your knots,
soften your glare, settle your dust
THIS IS THE PRIMAL IDENTITY.”[4]

WIPE OUT THE SKY TONIGHT, SMEAR DARKNESS ON THE STARS _
CHRISTIAN & MELISSA-32

_ BLOT OUT THE MOON in the slough of sleeplessness.
Cover your eyes & come through the web of the wind,
DROWN THE NOISE
of the strides of the night-veiled sea
_
CHRISTIAN & MELISSA-7c

_ TO TAKE MY BREATH AWAY
at each your soundless footfall.

In the quiet-quelled night – let us meet mouth to mouth
Upon the summit of sleeplessness_
.
SHATTER YOUR WORLD, SCATTER IT IN THE SKY,
AND COME TO ME IN THE DARK
