INSTAGRAFITE: ARTIST INTERVIEW: TAVAR ZAWACKI AKA ABOVE

In our recent recap series, we talked to the artist Tavar Zawacki aka ABOVE about his latest projects and views on the scene, and we covered many of his exhibitions. Although there is no need of further introduction to ABOVE’s prolific works over the past 20 years, you might not be as familiar as you would think with the artist himself.

JUXTAPOZ: „IT TOOK ME TILL NOW TO FIND YOU“ PROJECT BY ADDAM YEKUTIELI

„It Took Me Till Now to Find You“ at Lazarides is a new project by Addam Yekutieli, aka Know Hope. After dealing with mostly universal issues from an intellectual stand point in his previous work, this particular body of work deals with a situation that is very local and close to the artist himself.

WIDEWALLS: ANTON UNAI ART IS AMOR ENEMIGO AT DIE KUNSTAGENTIN

In the landscape of contemporary art, some of the most captivating and original pieces that challenge traditional boundaries have been born out of the simple waste. Transforming abandoned refuse into artistic treasures, Anton Unai art is a dynamic mixture of materials, methods, concepts, and subjects that defies easy classification. Personifying the philosophy represented by Joseph Beuys’ legacy, the artist profoundly believes in the sanctity of spontaneity, the poetry of chaos, and the rejection of traditional academia. His latest body of work will soon be presented at Die Kunstagentin. Titled Amor Enemigo, this solo show investigates the loaded space between lover and enemy – the slippery slope of a knife’s edge so palpable in today’s world.

The Huffington Post about Swoon simulating „What It’s Like To Have A Shared-Death Experience“

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.

DAZED: Know Hope tattooed his street art on people

The Israeli wordsmith/artist – famous for his fragmented poems – tattooed his street art on to 24 people for his latest exhibition

Know Hope likes paronomasia. You might have guessed from his name that he likes to play with words – his street interventions often centre on fragmented poems, phrases that hang on surfaces like aphorisms for an elegiac generation.
