Kurzdokumentation ‚Everything Amazing – Nobody Happy‘ über die Künstlerin Julia Benz

Painting, the process and what actually happens before the work is complete.

Julia Benz is a young painter who has been living in Berlin for two years now. Painting is the center of her life. After several exhibits outside the capital, she is now preparing for her first solo exhibition at the Urban Spree gallery in Berlin. One person, one exhibit and everything in between.

Andreas Lamoth and Frederic Leitzke from editude pictures, a film production company from Berlin, accompanied Julia Benz and her work with the canvas in the two weeks leading up to the start of her exhibition, in order to record a very important part of her artistic work: the process.

The short documentary “Everything Amazing – Nobody Happy” focuses on the weeks leading up to the opening. Especially those moments when not everything is going smoothly, when self-doubt takes over, were caught on film and create an intensive portrait of the creative process of Julia Benz.

TrendVisions Magazine: „CECI N’EST PAS UNE PIPE“: Interview with Agostino Iacuri

At first glance you would label them as works of art for kids, due to their illustrative stroke, bright tones, and flat, colored backgrounds. But it only takes a moment to realize that in the murals, illustrations and incisions by multidisciplinary artist Agostino Iacurci (born in Foggia in 1986), there’s the desire to speak to everybody, with a visual vocabulary that is able to condense stories open to various levels of reading into figures and characters. Suspended between irony and premonition, his monumental murals are tales of everyday life in which to immerge yourself, rediscovering the narrative power of static images and the urban context from which they appear.

welt.de über Stefan Strumbel – Andy Warhol der Kuckucksuhren

Früher besprühte Stefan Strumbel heimlich Züge, heute hängen seine Arbeiten bei Lagerfeld über dem Sofa: Der Schwarzwälder Ex-Sprayer hat mit seiner schrägen Heimat-Kunst Fans in der ganzen Welt.

Stefan Strumbel, hipper Hut, rosa Socken, neongelbe Sportschuhe, bunte Tätowierungen auf den Oberarmen, rutscht nervös auf der harten Kirchenbank hin und her. Nicht weil er gleich in den nahen Beichtstuhl müsste, wo eine tätowierte Nackte mit prallem Bollenhut und wulstigen Schamlippen wartet – diese „Heimathure“ ist sein Geschöpf.

BBC News „In Pictures“: Evol street art

Swoon’s project, “Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea,” features seven boats including this steam-powered paddleboat.

Three loud blasts from a steam whistle screamed out as the rain drizzled on the riverbank here. And the fleet of seven eclectic handmade ships slowly moved away.

Only minutes before their launching, on Friday around noon, a group of people, mostly in their 20s and 30s, was still preparing for the voyage down the Hudson River. In between bites of jelly doughnuts, the crew, dressed in hipster hillbilly chic, hustled to clean up pieces of scrap metal and ready the boats. In the middle stood the artist known as Swoon in a bright yellow rain poncho and jeans.

Brooklyn Street Art Blog visits Swoon in her NYC Studio

Brooklyn Street Art Blog visits Swoon in her Studio.

A visit to Swoon’s studio is a full immersion into her passions; meditations on humanity, the process of collaboration, and sculptures you can inhabit. In the rustic warm light of a triple height cavernous space that might have served as a town hall a score of printed artworks on paper lay scattered across the wooden floor. Tiptoeing between the images to cross the formerly grand chamber, the familiar faces of children and adults who you’ve met on walls across the city look up at you. Together these figures, a de facto retrospective of Swoons’ last few years on the street in NYC, are burned into the retina of many a Street Art fan, and yet they lay here on this whitewashed wood-slatted floor without any ceremony at all.
