Vladimir Kato

As a child of 80′s growing up in Yugoslavia, Vladimir Kato was entrenched in the urban environment. His neighborhood consisted of punks and skins hanging out on basketball courts, political and vulgar graffiti on walls, and anarchy symbols scrawled on every mailbox; a formidable playground to encourage artistic production. His father was a wood carver and first encouraged Vladimir to begin drawing and sculpting at the age of 5. His early influences were Italian comics like Alan Ford, Zagor and the horror comic Dylan Dog. Mixed with a young Eastern European outlook on Western pop culture, movie posters by Drew Struzan (Back to the Future, E.T., Indiana Jones), brands like Nike, Cross Colors, and album covers from Michael Jackson, Black Sabbath, and Iron Maiden all stimulated his mind. Vladimir’s early drawings depicting everything from skateboarding, gun toting, hip-hop punks, to flying, medieval beast men. (Continue reading…)

Andreas Kocks

p

Andreas Kocks’ work focuses on the integration of fine art and architecture. His favorite medium is heavy watercolor paper. By cutting into it and installing multiple layers on the site, he transforms the “contained architectural box” into a territorial surface. The entire gallery feels physically activated as he redefines existing boundaries. The walls of the architecture no longer define the space. Instead, Kocks modifies the conventional cube by removing its innate banality and replaces it with an immediate cerebral experience. In a deliberate way Kocks has “tagged” the walls with his papercuts but has also left an implied trace of the viewer’s passive action. Moreover, he invites the viewer to move and change their position thus modifying his or her viewpoint. ‘ (via Winston Wachter Fine Art)

Heaven and Earth

” Wow, what an amazing experience this was! First of all, this is a “real” baby, asleep on his actual birth Mother. The baby was exactly five weeks old and slept throughout the entire process. The mother is a great friend of mine and understood all of the unique factors involved in my process. Now… This is the first time that I had ever seen such a painting attempted and I’m so thrilled that it became a reality. The painting, studio and photography required lots of special care, attention and speed. I still feel very privileged each time I work with newborns. ” (Models: Kayce and Baby Spencer; Photo: Max Trombly) – Craig Tracy
