Yesterday was an opportunity for me to catch up with lots of Munich Artists who are spending the weekend selling artwork at Stroke Ltd. If you are at Stroke this weekend and I didn’t say hello to you, I’m sorry. It wasn’t intentional. I was in like some kind of time sucking vortex. Who knew four hours could go by so quickly on a Friday afternoon. Next time I will bring my Boston terrier, Winston, with me so he can tell you how wonderful your art is and then may I can stay a few extra minutes to chat about your artwork.
Here are some of the artists and artwork at Stroke. I think I got everyone off the invitation list from Monday. If you sent me an invitation and I did not stop at your booth, please hunt me down next time. If you did not send me a invitation and you wanted me to talk to you… well, then we need to fix that before the next Stroke in the Spring.
Nina Schmid exhibiting her 30 day Munich Artists challenge at Stroke ltd. Love seeing all her hard work displayed together at the art fair. She will sell you individual prints in whatever size you want just ask her! You can find the Munich Artists Challenge here.
Munich Artists Bianca Artope. Bianca is currently working on canvas and LED screens. You need to see these in person. Still love her process and the way it looks on canvas. Miss the copper but love the new work.
Munich Artists Mr. Woodland. He has been busy creating his motifs on canvas which is good luck for anyone who likes his street/urban art. The pieces all have a story. I love stories. Ask Daniel and he will tell you all about why there’s a girl with her head in the clouds.
Munich Artists Ines Seidel. I collect Ines. I can’t help myself. We have an affinity for words. Luckily we express ourselves in a differently way which means I can have her hanging around. Last time I bought a necklace. This time a photograph cause right can be soooooo wrong.
Vinicius Caps and Gallerist Philipp Dziersk…. aaaaaaaaaall the way from Brazil. Ask to see Philipp’s black portfolio. He has some pretty cool Brazilian artwork tucked away.Vinicius Caps is on the wall… football isn’t my thing but if it is yours, you may enjoy the sports theme.
Munich Artists Ray Moore and Brigitte Pruchnow at stroke ltd. Ray is hanging out in the front of Stroke next to the heater which is the perfect spot to be on such a chilly weekend. Brigitte is tucked way in the back so make sure you go say hi to her if you are there this weekend.
Who doesn’t love NYC. Max Ott was very busy using digital manipulation to make these images. Photoshop and some other program are the lucky charms he used to prism NYC. Interesting to look at and makes me even more excited about going to NYC next week.
Brigitte Pruchnow, Andrea Peipe and Michaela Wuehr are showing artwork together again at Stroke. It’s like a thing. Three girls on a wall. Michaela’s artwork is painted, pixelated and better looked at from a distance. Can you guess what this image is. (Hint there is a little boy….)
Synapsenballet. These are great. The postcards are 2 Euro each. I can’t find my postcard 😦 Where did it go?
Glad I took some photos because I can’t find my freaking postcard of synapsenballet. I really like these pieces created with a sense of humour. Art doesn’t have to be heavy and depressing. Sometimes it is fun to have an art piece that makes you laugh.
Berlin artist The Art Ko. Ok. Here is what he does… it is kind of Miro – ish. He throws paint on the paper. Lets it dry. Waits a few days and then paints with black acrylic the details. Unconscious abstract art. He won’t tell you what it is because he doesn’t want to impress you with a specific image… He kept telling me what this image was… but I don’t see it so I won’t tell you. I keep seeing a map. Imagination fail on my part. I did see barb wire in another piece but he said I was the first person to see that….. dark soul am I. Yes. dark and scary.
Angela Peron I love this series. Who would not love having one of these. Maybe True and 12 should put one in their shop.
Luckily I took a business card and shot a photo of the business cards so I could match the card with the images. This artwork is by Christina Rupp. I did not speak with this artist. No clue what is going on here other than the obvious. I guess you will need to talk to her. Go ahead, I dare you.
I don’t know what is going on here. I took a photo of it b/c of the artwork waaaaay to the right. It looks like my daughter’s room and I think that is why I ran away without grabbing a card or a sheet telling me who made the drawing to the faaaaaaar right. Modge Podge wall. Does this help sell more work?
I like these. Did not talk to anyone. I think I was running out of steam. Four hours is a long time. I see the little house in the corner… I see the name Frank… I think you need to help fill in the blanks for me.
Andrea Peipe’s artwork printed by Malte Dinkela. Nice work both of you!
Two guys and light bulbs. One side of the display has lightbulbs painted with a special paint. I have no idea which business card goes with this display. If you see this photo, please claim your artwork. Thank you.
Christopher Kieling? I need to go check the website to make sure. A larger image is to the right but I guess I got busy talking to someone and forgot to snap both.
I had fun talking to 3 steps artist Kai H. Krieger. He comes from a family of artists… his twin brother is also one of the painters and they have a third unrelated painter working on the pieces. They started with street art and have wandered indoors. Some of their piece are kind of big 2M but not at Stroke ltd. This is one of the larger pieces. Still kind of big over 1M but doable. They are from Giessen. They made this series just for Munich… See Munich in the background? Is the book Bayerish?
I love these. I didn’t get to talk to Ronit Wolf. Maybe next time. Love your stuff Ronit.
Happy and Bright. Miriam Ganser This artist makes street art which is more edgy. Maybe Miriam thought that wasn’t appropriate for the walls of an art fair. The artist wasn’t there when I stopped by so no photo of the artist. It happens… I get busy talking and forget to snap the photo or the artist runs and hides from me so I can’t get a candid shot. Whatever the reason, I can’t tell you anything about these images… sorry.
Tanja Hirschfeld. I like this series of masked individuals. I love the small paintings of the mouse. I thought about getting one but my daughter is scared of clowns and I could see it giving her nightmares. They are really cool and look great together. I’m pondering the small rabbit head. All the pieces are monochrome. Tanja and two of her artists friends are opening a small gallery called Frida. Please check out our Facebook page for the event notice. They open sometime in November. I forgot to take a photo of Tanja. Sorry Tanja. I will take one at your gallery opening.
I added this one for my daughter. Cat people by Miss Van. A french artist living in Brazil. The artist makes some really cool art with her boyfriend . Ask the Brazilian galleriest Philipp Dziersk to show you on is ipadish thingy. Wait, I have the internet, let me show you….
