ARE YOU TIGER?

Who’s better, who’s bigger and who is part of the tone?
Are you tiger?
A certain background demands adequate surroundings.
A castle for a king, a Ferrari for an achiever, a bottle of champagne and expensive goods for those who can afford it.
The baroque concept of absolutism (without limits) values more than creating masterpieces in the fine arts, It frames an idealistic concept of living in the most beautiful wold of the big, bigger, the biggest houses, cars, boats and exotic animals.
Are you tiger?
What does paradise look like?
The rich kids of Instagram show us, give us the chance to be jealous or to hate them. Whatever it takes to be fancy, we can admire from our platform.
Visual creatures as we are, easily attracted.
Golden cages, diamond homes, million dollar accounts equalise the characteristics of status symbolism.
Semiotic baroque codes and the absolutistic apotheosis of display indicate the bizarre snobbism celebrated by the rich kids of Instagram.
The selection of fabrics, size, richness and colour shows the extravagance of an elite which likes to share glimpses into their lifestyles.
