Atelier Olschinsky

Atelier Olschinsky  —> following list

Actually it was really hard for me to pick my favorites from this outstanding artwork of  the creative studio Atelier Olschinsky and after I saw the following list I was complety blown away. The studio is based in Vienna founded 2002 by Peter Olschinsky and Verena Weiss. To put ther work in just some adjectives ios quite impossible, but let me try: the art work is vivid, inspiring and futuristic with a huge story telling and because of the visual complexity the graphics seems fragile but at the same time the elements are balanced and gives our visual senses a strong impact.
That is what they say about themselves:
“It is just so important to work as much as you can, to learn and to be open to new things.
The journey is the award.” (Atelier Olschinsky)

Examples of the following list

Shepard Fairey – Obey to the better

February 14th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

“Introducing the American artist Shepard Fairey is a bit like explaining whose portrait he famously altered for the “Hope” campaign that was widely used by Barack Obama’s supporters in 2008. Since the mid 1980s he has created outstanding (then: street) art that is strong, iconic and expressive. Shepard Fairey is also a thoughtful, committed, and outspoken activist who revives the artistic virtues of standing up for the freedom of speech and fighting for rational and non-corporate ways of dealing with the issue of copyright. Obey the interview we did with him in Los Angeles in late 2010!” (

Simón Prades is studying graphic design at the university of applied sciences in Trier. I really like his illustrations and drawings. A call to awareness of what is happening in the world is visible throughout his work. And we all need some more of that..

See more on his website or his blog. (The top drawing is a large-format related to Mexico).

Judith Supine

November 22nd, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

Judith Supine is a 29-year-old artist living in Brooklyn, NY. Supine could not speak until a month after his seventeenth birthday. He could not physically articulate words, he could only squeak and grunt. Supine often drew pictures to communicate with his family. His mom saved all of his pictures, just one of many reasons why his mom is great.

Judith Supine  sources images from fashion magazines, art history books and any other publicatios he manages to lay his hands on. He gets his magazines out of people’s trash, from the public library, from the dentist’s offices, from his little sister’s magazine collection, from bankrupt porn shops. You can find his work on the streets as well, but he is doing a lot of stuff for sell.

Aaron Rose / Beautiful Loser Movement

October 18th, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

Circleculture Gallery, Berlin presents “Trouble”, new works by Aaron Rose, which give very personal and direct insights into the artist’s mind. Aaron Rose is perhaps best known as a curator. With his touring show Beautiful Losers and the documentary of the same name, he brought underground artists to public attention, championing a DIY aesthetic informed by their various backgrounds as skaters, punk rock fans and graffiti writers.

Aaron Rose is a lot more of an influence than you probably ever thought. He’s responsible for the large-scale, traveling museum exhibition titled “Beautiful Losers” (there’s a book too), he’s a writer and independent curator who shows all over the world, and he was the owner/director of the highly influential Alleged Gallery in New York for 10 years.

shots of his current art exhibition in the circleculture gallery in Berlin:

For this show he has a particular obsession: painting on suitcases. “Suitcases from the 50s to 70s were manufactured in such interesting color palettes – these incredible mustard yellows and army greens,” he says. Rose calls the works (some of which are stuffed with surprise goodies for buyers to walk away with) “object paintings,” displaying them in the spirit of Duchamp. Art historical references aside, the show’s conceptual slant is psychological, personal even. “It’s my baggage,” says Rose. “The exhibition is going to be very much a confession, what all my problems are.”
