one artist show: Uwe Langmann>
Originating from the Allgäu region of Bavaria Uwe Langmann is living and creating at the moment in Berlin.
His focus in his photos is to picture structures that emerge from everyday objects and express them aesthetically in his pictures. It appeals to him above all simple motifs and abstract compositions, which he arranges to extraordinary pictures.
He derives his inspiration greatly from modern architecture and the natural beauty of landscapes.
After extensively travelling the world, and subsequent studies at the Freie Kunstwerkstatt in Munich, Sebastian Wandl realized his dream of becoming a freelance artist in 2011. The faces he captures in his portraits bear witness to the sensibility and subtlety of the artist - as is his graphic and painterly style, influenced by the style of urban art and his studies as an illustrator. In his works, a sculptural claim and surrealistic features create a unique form of language, which puts the motif into tension, yet radiates calm and artistic precision.
Mathias Pürthner created fine arts ever since his studies at the university as an architect.
Likewise, his artworks are heavily influenced by his profound understanding and feeling of form. Among the arts his focus is strongly on digital graphical art and elaborate sculptures which are closely related to 3D space art and form fascinating shapes with intriguing and deep forms that invite to reflect on oneself.
"Peintre X has many ideals. In the genre of art, he loves Beckmann, appreciates Damien Hirst and probably even the constructivists, he cites Marina Abramovic and uses them all in order to stand out from them himself. […]
His portraits are deliberately striking, interplays of light and shadow on colourfully, additively added layered surfaces. He works with hard contours, leaving no doubt of his authenticity, and conveys significant meaning by way of graphic abbreviations, accentuating the expressive eyes – doubly stressed as a super symbol – the carnivorous red lips, and the sketchily drawn high forehead. […]
Rich in references, rich in characterizations, close to one's self and even to our everyday experiences, at the heart of the personal in general, Peintre X offers much upon which to reflect. He examines the direct encounter, seeks reflection and, above all, to inspire self-reflection. It's no wonder that, in addition to showing in a gallery space, he's also on the street, accessible to everyone, in an independent and above all absolutely credible form of art engagee."

TABBY is an Austrian street artist who loves to love and hates to hate.
"Life gets boring, everything becomes routine, nothing ever suddenly changes for the better. But if theres suddenly something new on a wall youve walked by for years, then it might just brighten up your day.
Images are created, spray paint and stencils are the tools used to make them. More and more youll find some experimenting with anything I get my hands on.
Every image has a meaning behind it, what it is is up to you. Maybe you will discover a better meaning than what was originally intended, I wont stand in the way of that.
The goal isnt to destroy but to add something interesting, unusual or thought provoking in an unexpected location. Its something you might be happy to find on a random walk one day and that wasnt there the day before."
