Love this artist’s work. The simplicity. Flat surfaces. Story telling. And her choice of colours. Look at those blues. Ieva Baklane

Florin Ion Firimiţã

This artist is like a small industry. He is writer, artist, musician. He’s had a movie made about his life. And I like his work. There are a lot of ideas in it. Visual ideas that are always fun. From the little I read, his writing seems to be filled with the same sensitivity. This is a man of great introspection.

Jorg Immendorff

A lot of Jorg Immendorff’s work looks like it is on fire. I get the impression of a man who wants to be in the present. To create an urgency in a medium which by its nature is static. He wants to say something.

I think it is this passion that makes Immendorff create paintings that have a collage affect. Like the generation of posters hanging on walls. Some partly torn off, some almost completely covered, some glorifying in their complete newness.

His images seem to wander. Between the photo and the scribble. Many of them have landscapes familiar to those who study Japanese art. I imagine that one’s impression would increase dramatically if one were looking at the originals.

Robert Bender found Jesus. And yet his wonderful photographs are about the very ordinary. Perhaps to him, he sees the wonder of God in them. What I see are stories. Stories waiting to be released.

Street Art in India

Graffiti isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of art forms in India, and true to that assumption what we had been seeing so far in our travels came in more traditional forms and content – lots of sculptures and pictures depicting gods, history and legends.

It was pretty awesome when we also started to stumble upon less traditional subject matter and techniques as well as re-interpretations of key icons.

Described as a surrealist photographer, his work is filled with messages, commentary, puns, and lots of fun. David LaChapelle.

Helmet Newton

23 10 2013

Newton must be one of the most recognizable and controversial photographers in some time. He is best known for his fashion photography and photos of famous people. What’s gotten most attention is his nudes. They are always arresting. All of his photographs that I have seen looked staged. And because of that they remind me of collages. The parts of his pieces are not there by happenchance. Nor are they natural. But they do seem to be like scenes from a story/film. There is a atmosphere in his photos of fascism. A kind of fetish for the 40s. Like a wet dream and a nightmare at the same time.
