An artist living and working in Brooklyn NY. Early on he picked up skateboarding, and he immersed himself within the subculture. Designing tshirts, skateboard graphics, and skateboarding in local shop videos. He eventually went on to design over 200+ board graphics for skateboard companies from Norway, Russia, England, and all over the US and rest of the world. His art as well as himself skateboarding appeared in numerous skateboard magazines including Thrasher.
Adopting the moniker of Wizard Skull and abandoning freelance design work, he began wheat pasting his art all around New York. One of his most often wheat pastes was "Sexy Ronald", a buff version of Ronald McDonald wearing only underwear with fries popping out of them. People began photographing and sharing images of it on social media which led to the image going viral several times, being bootlegged and sold on tshirts in Thailand. This also led to his art being exposed to a larger audience.

AIKO

AIKO was born and raised in Tokyo before moving to New York City in the mid-90′s. Already creating art since a young age, her art career in NYC began when she started working for Takashi Murakami. She apprenticed in Murakami’s studio in Brooklyn and worked for him until the late 90′s going on to a direct a digital biography on the artist (“Superflat” 1998). AIKO continued to practice her own art and after leaving Murakami’s studio graduated from The New School University where she finished her MFA Media Studies and later met up with two American artists, the three of them would come to establish the group now known as FAILE. Creating work within the collective locally and abroad for a number of years, she moved on and established herself as Lady AIKO in 2006. AIKO continues to create work in the studio as well as public space. She is acclaimed in the contemporary art world and well-respected within the international graffiti and street art scene.

Current Exhibitions are “BEYOND THE STREET” May 2018 in Los Angeles USA as well as the solo exhibitions “BUNNY IN THE HOUSE” at WALLWORKS Gallery NY Mar 2018, and “LADY GO” April 2018 at Shizuoka City Tokaido Hiroshige Museum JAPAN.

She worked with Banksy on “Exit Through the Gift Shop” in 2010. Her large scale works indoors and outdoors are installed in many cities, including Miami’s Wynwood Walls in 2009, New York City’s Bowery Wall in 2013, and Coney Art Walls in 2015/2016/2017, all three curated by Jeffrey Deitch. AIKO has also been involved in a large collection of group shows, from “AnimamixBiennale” at Shanghai’s MoCA in 2009 to “Edo Pop” at Japan Society NYC in 2013, ‘Some Place Like Home” at Rumney Guggenheim Gallery NY in 2015 to her more recent solo show, “Sweet Heart” at The Outsiders Gallery in the UK in 2014.

AIKO has also been commissioned to create works in collaboration with Louis Vuitton, Coach, Apple, Microsoft, Kiehl’s, The Standard, W Hotel, Sanrio Hello Kitty, Isetan, Warner Bros., RED, Pepsi, Reebok and former First Lady Michelle Obama etc.

During her stay as Q21 artist in residence at MuseumsQuartier the artist will create panels for #streetartpassage, paint a mural at Siebensterngasse, a small exhibition at Jan Arnold Gallery.

Anselm Pavlik - µ [my]

Vernissage: 
April 4, 2018 | 7-22 pm
Exhibition: 
April 5 - 29, 2018
Location: 
Jan Arnold Gallery | MQ, Q21 Showrooms | Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Vienna

Opening hours by arrangement at info@anselmpavlik.com

In der Unschärfe gründet die Ästhetik des Lebens, der Kunst und der Musik, welche das Unnahbare spannend und interessant macht. Die Installation μ [my] thematisiert die Schönheit und Kraft der Unschärfe im Entdecken und Erklären unserer Welt. Anselm Pavlik nutzt in seinem Video das optische Problem der Tiefenschärfe und überlagert es mit zufällig angesteuerten Kompositionsfragmenten. Die Arbeit verweist auf unsere befangene Wahrnehmung der Welt, die sich von unserer sehr persönlichen, subjektiven und intrinsischen Perzeption, bis hin zu wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen, Erklärungen und Lösungen zieht. Unsere Grenzen die Ganzheit und die Gleichheit wahrzunehmen zwingt uns sich mit Details, den einzelnen Schichten, zu beschäftigen. Überlagert oder setzt man die Schichten wieder zusammen ergibt das oft ein teilweise korrektes Gesamtbild.

Anselm Pavlik lebt und arbeitet in Wien. Seine Arbeit beginnt mit der Betrachtung der Natur: Form, Struktur, Klang, Farbe, Bewegung, Wirkung, Zeit. Auf der Suche nach einer umfassenden Wiedergabe seiner Beobachtungen spannt er den Bogen zwischen bildender Kunst, Musik, Film und Naturwissenschaft. Die Komponenten verschmelzen zu einem Gesamtkunstwerk und werden zu einer eigenen Sprache, die sich in eine individuelle Wahrnehmung der Natur auflöst und als Arbeitsthematik einfließt. Es entstanden Rauminstallationen, Filme, Zeichnungen und Kompositionen.

In the blur builds the aesthetics of life, art and music, which makes the unapproachable fascinating and interesting. The installation μ [my] broaches the issue of beauty and strength of the blur in the discovery and explanation of our world. Anselm Pavlik uses the optical problem of depth of focus and overlays randomly chosen fragments of composition in his video. This work refers to our biased perception of the world, which draws a line from our personal, subjective and intrinsic cognition, to scientific knowledge, explanations and solutions. Our limitation in perceiving the wholeness and sameness forces us to deal with details and each layer individually. Putting all layers back together often creates only a partially true overall picture.

Anselm Pavlik lives and works in Vienna. His work starts with the observation of nature: form, structure, sound, colour, movement, effect and time. In search for an extensive rendition of his observations he ties visual art, music, film and natural science together. These components merge into a synthesis which becomes its own language that concludes in an indivudual perception of nature and is being integrated as a working theme. The results are room installations, films, drawings and compositions.

Z - Interfering with Nature

Exhibition: 
March 9 - 31, 2018
Location: 
Jan Arnold Gallery | MQ, Q21 Showrooms | Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Vienna

Opulent and fragile, this sculpture is indeed inflated. Would it not be for it's source of power this would merely be a heap of garbage bags. The sum of the plastic parts create an animated greater whole. Z would like to demonstrate how the best things in life are finite. Produced with a minimal budget, Z found plastic bags to be ubiquitous and dirt cheap though weighing heavy on her ecological conscience.

Meist beginnt alles mit einer Idee.
Diese wird weiterentwickelt. Oder auch nicht so recht. Dann widmen wir uns anderen Dinge, vergessen scheinbar woran wir gerade arbeiten. Brüten eigentlich etwas aus. Dann stürzen wir uns in die Arbeit. Und Scheitern? Stecken fest. Verwerfen. Modifizieren. Experimentieren. Und beginnen von vorn. Machen weiter.
Kreativität ist ein Prozess. In Ausnahmefällen kann es ein Ereignis sein, bei dem die kreative Idee wie ein Blitz einschlägt. Es ist fast selbstverständlich, dass das Resultat nicht der ursprünglichen Idee entspricht. Geben wir Zufall, Irrtum und Scheitern Raum im kreativen Prozess, kann Unvorhergesehenes passieren und originelle Ideen entstehen.

Das Atelier wechselt den Ort, in eine neue Umgebung. Im Rahmen des Kunstprojekts living studio wird der frei_raum Quartier21 exhibition space in über ein Dutzend Arbeitsplätze für KünstlerInnen transformiert. Vor Ort und für die BesucherInnen einsehbar und erlebbar, werden die Kunstschaffenden an ihren Projekten arbeiten.
Die entstandenen Werke werden nach zwei Wochen öffentlichen Arbeitens in einer Gemeinschaftsausstellung präsentiert.

Zusammenfinden werden sich KünstlerInnen verschiedenster Sparten und Arbeitsweisen. Den BesucherInnen wird ein Einblick in die unterschiedlichen kreativen Schaffens-prozesse gewährt, welche im Normalfall im Verborgenen bleiben.
Dabei stellen sich Fragen, wie kann Zusammenarbeit im künstlerischen Schaffen aussehen? Lässt sich Kreativität planen? Mithilfe welcher Bedingungen kann Innovation auch planvoll passieren?

Ein Projekt der Jan Arnold Gallery (Sebastian Schager, Joseph Rudolf, Markus Grabenwöger) mit Amelie Brandstetter

LIVING STUDIO: FEB 1 - 14, 11am - 9pm
OPENING: FEB 15, 7-11pm
EXHIBITION: FEB 16 - 23, 12am - 7pm

Usually everything starts with an idea.
The idea evolves. Or not really. Then we devote ourselves to other things, seemingly forgetting what we are working on. Actually hatching something. Then we plunge into the work. And fail? Are stuck. Discard. Modify. Experiment. And start over. Continue.
Creativity is a process. In exceptional cases, it can be an event in which the creative idea strikes like lightning. It goes without saying that the result does merely correspond to the original idea. If we give chance, error and failure space in the creative process, unforeseen events can happen and original ideas emerge.

The studio changes its venue into a new environment. As part of the art project living studio, frei_raum Quartier21 exhibition space is being transformed into over a dozen workplaces for artists. The artists will work on their projects on site and for the visitors to see and experience.
The produced works will be presented in a joint exhibition after two weeks of public work.

Artists from different disciplines and working methods will come together. Visitors are given an insight into the different creative processes that normally remain hidden.
This raises questions such as: how can cooperation in artistic work look like? Can creativity be planned? Under what conditions will innovation happen?
