Prints and motion art

 

We have been dying
since we got here
and forgot to enjoy the view
– Rupi Kaur

 

Taking in impressions and inspirations on this journey called life,
my artworks are diary entries and reminders to myself to enjoy the view to the fullest.

During my studies of visual communication in Germany and Israel I’ve always loved the asthetics of analogue. There is a certain kind of magic in methods such as linocut, screen printing or monotype printmaking that digital just can’t do. In turn it is the fascinating process of bringing the analogue artworks to life by digital editing.

Valentina Michelini

“Through a multiform approach to the medium, I present painting as a fluid art form. Thanks to its ambiguous formal and expressive multiplicity, I consider painting the ideal medium to participate with art in the process of social evolution in which we find ourselves: the overcoming of patriarchal tradition and its rigid discriminatory schemes, in favor of a broader worldview, which valorizes the nuances and supports the creative coexistence of diversities.”

Hui Rong Liu

Hui Rong Liu is an artist-architect from Taiwan.
Trained as an architect at The Cooper Union in New York City, she draws architectural plans by day, illustrations by night; and cartoons while asleep. She works mainly with ink and paper, as well as digital drawing mediums.
Her drawings reflect her interest in film. She consider these drawings as film stills – moments captured from continuous movement. Her works are spatial compositions within the depth of paper.

Meet the musician!

Rivka is just like everyone else in Berlin: not from Berlin, and somehow drawn to being in it. She does some performance art stuff, some music stuff and some other stuff to pay the bills, but mostly she just loves her life and is super happy to be living it.
