“…think of all the storys that we could have told.”
Hamburg. April. OZM. I will set up a new show together with the Quintessenz Creation crew at the Hamburger Schanze. So far all preparation make me look forward to a monster clash. Colors, Shapes, shades, character and some installations. If you come around, you will meet Methy Megadrive Batgirl, The Outerspace Rock´N´Roll Unicorn and some other weirdoson canvase. See you there…
All artworks will be auctioned at Lauritz.com
Das OZM freut sich darauf, im April die vielversprechende Kollaboration von
Quintessenz und Danny Doom präsentieren zu können. Beide haben ein Faible für
experimentelle Arbeit welche über die Begrenzung der Leinwand hinausgeht und auf
spielerische Art und Weise die Räumlichkeiten, die Umgebung miteinbezieht.
Wo die Leinwand anfängt und wo sie aufhört, können wir noch nicht sagen.
Wir sind gespannt auf eine geballte Ladung Farbe.
Die Werke werden in der April-Ausstellung im OZM gezeigt und im Anschluss
über das Auktionshaus Lauritz unter http://www.lauritz.com versteigert.

About the artists:
ANGELA M.D. OTTO
Illustrator and graphic designer Angela M.D. Otto works according to “apophenia”. That’s a term used by psychologists to describe the mind’s will to construct meaning, order and forms even from chaotic structures – just like seeing faces in the clouds. Since her first examination of using coffee splotches, she did many more works – based on tea and juice drippings, further experimenting with paper and fluids and improving the method. The “found” motifs are extracted from the patterns and details are worked out using colored ink. Nonetheless her pictures give a wide range of interpretation and scope the “see more”.www.hoploid.com
Aro’s (Christian Schupp) work is mostly created directly on the computer. His illustrations consist of characters that are enriched by various graphical elements and a wealth of details, so as to tell stories and offer the viewer plenty of room for interpretation. It all started with graffiti, during the late 90s. His characters keep evolving since then, some created withpen and paper, most by means of vectors and pixels. www.aroone.de
Danny Doom aka Desur’s work is a mash of techniques and motives with influences from punk, skating, graffiti and translucent painting techniques as used by the old masters. His characters and figures are sometimes abstract sometimes comic like and melt into complex multilayered backgrounds. His current work is best described as a mixture of graffiti, street art and illustration. After starting with conventional graffiti at an early age he now works on walls, canvases, furniture and so on by using cans, brushes, paint, ink, acrylic, dirt, coffee… pretty much everything that proves to work for his purpose. With these tools and materials he creates the oldish, used look of his characteristic canvases. www.itisalwaysdoomsday.com
Hr.v.Bias is a freelance illustrator and graffiti artist. He loves girls, dogs and painted walls. His work is a smidgen weird and without the right drugs hard to understand. www.herr-bias.de
Main issue of Ink-a-zoid’s work is portraying the dark side of life, which is formerly associated with death. His works ban the horror by means of aesthetics like clear and calming lines, carefully distinguished colours and a detailed vector-based execution. Influenced by the subculture and urbanity of Berlin city the graphic artist creates an obscure and morbid universe – the aesthetic of negativity. www.ink-a-zoid.com
The artistic approach of Nadja Schüller-Ost as well as her creative process of examination takes place within several layers of observation and perception. Like in real life the observer of her works is confronted with tragedy and humor – both intertwined with each other. Her pictures raise the
curtain to the absurdity of life itself with all of its vainness. Stylistic devices and forms of expression emphasize the respective theme, push it further, aim at its deeper meaning and unerringly hit the point. www.n-s-o.net
