Lushsux is an artist from Melbourne, Australia, widely recognized for his large murals on the streets, walls and other structures. His work has been repeatedly characterized as provocative, confrontational and comical; offering shameless commentary on topics as well as prominent figures that are trending at this very moment. The Aussie writer is polarizing due to the fact that his work elicits a reaction that you either will feel strongly about or despise completely. It’s this burgeoning divide between allies and adversaries of his work that continue to spur the media’s attention and bring cognizance to his name. It also comes as no surprise why the world’s most famous (and most reclusive) artist Banksy enlisted Lushsux to be one of the participating artists for his ‘Dismaland, Bemusement Park‘ exhibition in 2015 in Weston Super Mare, England.

Numerous solo shows from 2010 to 2016, Melbourne, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Paris, Copenhagen, Berlin, Amsterdam

MQ - Electric Avenue, Museumsplatz 1, A-1070 Vienna

Error in Utopia v 0.2
Once there was a clear distinction between reality and illusion, but today the boundarie disappeared. The most intimate part of our lives became the virtual world that feeds on the media. The technology shapes human consciousness and way of thinking, changeing our perception. We live in a world where there are more and more information, and less and less meaning. The term hyperreality marks a new concurrence of circumstances in which disappears every tension between reality and illusion, between reality as it is and as it should be.

Ivana Tkalčić graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb. Before the Academy she received a master's degree in economics and tourism at Faculty of Economics, Zagreb. In the academic year 2014/2015. she got the ERASMUS + scholarship which enabled her to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.

Rudi Cotroneo - 32°C auf Lampedusa

MAY 11, 2017, 18-22:00
MAY 12 - JUNE 4
MQ - Electric Avenue, Museumsplatz 1, A-1070 Vienna

„Resultierend aus einem großen Geschichtsinteresse und aus Besorgnis über den Weg der Welt in der Neuzeit entwickelt Rudi Cotroneo in seinen Bildern eine Sehnsucht nach Ruhe in dieser von Unruhe gequälten, dynamischen Welt, deren Dynamik in vielen Dingen bereits sehr zu hinterfragen ist.
Malereien und Collagen zeigen vom Meer umgebene Inseln des Faßbaren und schaffen Ruhepole. Ein mächtiges zentrales Gebirgsmassiv, der Natur entnommen, als solide Basis umgeben von einer Klischeehaften Alm mit Dorf und einem See, gefüllt mit dem Quell allen Lebens, unserem Wasser.
 Die Szenerien geleiten den Betrachter zu den wesentlichen Dingen des Lebens und erweitert dadurch sein Verständnis für Natur und organisches Leben. Rudi Cotroneo spannt durch seinen eigenen Lebensweg vom Strand in Kalabrien bis zu den Bergen unserer Alpen einen malerischen Bogen der erhaltenswertesten Dinge unserer Erde, die es zu hegen und zu pflegen gilt in der Hoffnung sie noch lange mit dem wachsenden Verständnis aller Menschen zu bewahren." 

“As a result of a deep interest in history and concern about the world in modern times, Rudi Cotroneo developed a desire for peace in these turbulent times, in a dynamic world, whose dynamics can already be questioned in many ways.
His Paintings and collages show consciously perceivable islands surrounded by the sea and create calm anchors. A mighty central mountain massif, taken from nature, as a solid base surrounded by a clichéd alpine pasture with a village and a lake, filled with the spring of all life, our water. The sceneries lead the viewer to the essential things of life and expand thereby our understanding of nature and organic life. Rudi Cotroneo, inspired by his own way of life, traces an picturesque arc from the beach in Calabria to the mountains of our Alps, all valuable things of our earth, which must be nourished and cherished in the hope of preserving them for a long time with the growing understanding of all human beings.“
