ATM Gallery Berlin

ATM Gallery Berlin | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

ATM operates as a translator and mediator of Art presented in an urban environment. Its aim is to draw attention to the energetic expressions of an international street-art scene. in the space of a gallery.

ATM shows a broad selection of art works created by international urban artist and invites its visitors to take part in the visual language of an urban surrounding, instead of leaving it to the street where it can only be acknowledged by some.

In monthly changing exhibitions ATM shows different positions of urban, street- and graffiti artists and their impressive varieties of skills.

ATM is not interested in taking streetart from the streets and establishing it as an art form in the white cube of contemporary art – instead ATM likes to awaken an awareness and tolerance of the art form.

At the same time ATM supports urban artists by helping them to earn money by selling their works which enables them to continue working in the urban space. Next to supporting international projekts ATM mainly concentrates on supporting local groups and artists who work in Berlin at the moment.

Jan von Holleben

Jan von Holleben | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Born in 1977 in Cologne and brought up in the southern German countryside, he lived most of his youth in an alternative commune and identifies a strong connection between the development of his photographic work and the influence of his parents, a cinematographer and child therapist. At the age of 13, he followed his father’s photographic career by picking up a camera and experimenting with all sorts of "magical tricks", developing his photographic imagination and skills with friends and family and later honing his technique in commercial settings.

After pursuing studies in teaching children with disabilities at the Pädagogische Hochschule in Freiburg, he moved to London, earned a degree in the Theory and History of Photography atSurrey Institute of Art and Design, and became submerged within the London photographic scene, where he worked as picture editor, art director and photographic director. He quickly set up two photographic collectives, Young Photographers United and photodebut, followed more recently by the Photographer’s Office. His body of photographic work focusing on the ‘homo ludens’ – the man who learns through play, is itself built from a playful integration of pedagogical theory with his own personal experiences of play and memories of childhood.

Whitney Museum of American Art

Whitney Museum of American Art | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

As the preeminent institution devoted to the art of the United States, the Whitney Museum of American Art presents the full range of twentieth-century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists. The Whitney is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art, and its collection—arguably the finest holding of twentieth-century American art in the world—is the Museum’s key resource. The Museum’s signature exhibition, the Biennial, is the country’s leading survey of the most recent developments in American art.

Innovation has been a hallmark of the Whitney since its beginnings. It was the first museum dedicated to the work of living American artists and the first New York museum to present a major exhibition of a video artist (Nam June Paik in 1982). Such figures as Jasper Johns, Cy Twombly, and Cindy Sherman were given their first museum retrospectives by the Whitney. The Museum has consistently purchased works within the year they were created, often well before the artists became broadly recognized. The Whitney was the first museum to take its exhibitions and programming beyond its walls by establishing corporate-funded branch facilities, and the first museum to undertake a program of collection-sharing (with the San Jose Museum of Art) in order to increase access to its renowned collection.

Judy Miller

Judy Miller | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Judy Miller is a fine art photographer, living in Tucson, is a collector of photographic information. She is attracted to a wide range of subject matter including landscapes, architecture, textures, wax figures and statues. Judy studies her vast library of images to find or discover image relationships. The resulting dioramas and still life images represented in her portfolios represent imaginary realities created through the combination of two or more photographic elements.

Judy Miller’s Imaginary Dioramas series is the kind of work that makes you think, “Wait, what?” The famous faces in the photos are recognizable, but off in some subtle way. The backgrounds are ambiguous, and the combinations of celebrities and scenes, “Outakes” as they’re titled, create curious narratives.

Boris Vallejo

Boris Vallejo | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Born in Lima, Peru, Boris attended the National School of Fine Arts in his native country before immigrating to the United States in 1964. He has since done a great volume of work for the Fantasy field, having worked for virtually every major publishing house with a science fiction/fantasy line. Boris has also illustrated for album covers, video box art and motion picture advertising.

His mastery of oil painting is immediately and abundantly clear to anyone who looks at his work, and his classic sense is as much an homage to the old masters as it is to anyone contemporaneously working in the Fantasy genre.

Lukas Holas

Lukas Holas | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Photographer Lukas Holas loves animals. He loves animals so much that he decided to throw away the color and create high-class black and white portraits of his favorite creatures to showcase their real elegance and beauty. The portraits lack of color allows us to see the animals in deeper details. Their skin textures, feathers, and expressions pop into clearer view. The portrait of a lion creates real primal fear because of its intensity. Lukas helps us step aside of the focus on color and focus on the critical features of the animal that creates its magical persona in the world

Troy Holden

Troy Holden | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it
Photographs of San Francisco and San Franciscans

Amateur photographer Troy Holden uses a snapshot approach throughout San Francisco to capture images that are filled with life and personality. While wandering the streets, the skilled photographer imagines the world through his camera lens and knows just when to click to record the perfectly rare and candid moments.

As most street photographers do, Holden leaves his work up to chance and documents the people whom he comes across through unplanned interactions. He finds expressive ways to narrow in on one subject at a time, singling them out from their surroundings and quickly drawing the viewer in to the unposed, black and white narratives. Holden's work is a gritty representation of urban life filled with powerful emotions that emanate from each photograph.

Jake & Dinos Chapman

The Life and Works of Jake & Dinos Chapman

Iakovos "Jake" (born 1966) and Konstantinos "Dinos" (born 1962) are English visual artists, often known as the Chapman Brothers, who work together. Their subject matter tries to be deliberately shocking, including, in 2008, a series of works that appropriated original watercolours by Adolf Hitler. In the mid-1990s, their sculptures were included in the YBA showcase exhibitions Brilliant! and Sensation. In 2003, the two were nominated for the annual Turner Prize but lost out to Grayson Perry. In 2013, their painting One Day You Will No Longer Be Loved III was the subject of Derren Brown's Channel 4 special, The Great Art Robbery.

Jake Chapman was born in Cheltenham and Dinos Chapman in London. Their father was a British art teacher and their mother an orthodox Greek Cypriot (hence "Jake" an anglicized diminutive of the orthodox Iakovos, and "Dinos", a typical diminutive of the orthodox Konstantinos). They were brought up in Cheltenham but moved to Hastings where they attended a local comprehensive (William Parker School). Dinos studied at the Ravensbourne College of Art (1979–81), Jake at the North East London Polytechnic (1985–88) before both together enrolled at The Royal College of Art (1988–90), when they also worked as assistants to the artists Gilbert and George.

The blazing art of the director of photography Roger Deakins in 5 minutes

A tribute to cinematographer Roger Deakins. 

The photo from most of the movies of Coen Brothers: Fargo, No Country For Old Man, via True Grit, Barton Fink and The Barber...

It is him, Roger Deakins, director of photography from more than 30 years.

But the Englishman also worked with others prestigious film-makers: Andrew Dominik, Martin Scorsese, Sam Mendes, Ron Howard, Edward Zwick, Norman Jewison, M.Night Shyamalan, Paul Haggis, John Sayles and David Mamet are a member of his impressive list, which was nevertheless worth to him no Oscar.

An elegant editing pays tribute in its silversmith's talent of the light, recently used in movies as Prisoners and Skyfall.

Covered skies and colour sepia drawings, magnetic roads and geometrical crossroads, gaping doors and blinding surcadrages, fights between the warmth and the cold, the water and the fire, sometimes solved in a smoke screen: so many motives expensive to Deakins and to the film-makers with whom he collaborated.

Stohead

Stohead | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it
Stohead’s artistic passion is to depict the art of writing, which is displayed throughout his oeuvre. Scripture transports information, provokes thoughts and emotions, which coalesce and are then permanently preserved on paper. However, scripture can turn into an aesthetic masterpiece when using the skill of calligraphy. It is this very process combined with the code of the streets that characterize Stohead’s creative work. These codes are composed of lyrics from songs, texts, and or keywords of relevant social issues decoded and organized by the artist.  With repetition of the extracted phrases they are then turned into a design and or a three-dimensional sculpture.The arrangement diverts readability and leaves the beholder with the impact of colour figure, and shape. With fierce determination and intense physical labour, Stohead puts his raw emotions and feelings into the sculptures primer.
When the viewer starts to decipher the codes they will be confronted with subtitle references to socio-critical themes and poetical discourse in daily world affairs. The quite aggressive diction in Stohead’s calligraphies evolves from his disillusions, anger, and feelings toward a generation that is overburdened with technology. Stohead represents his cultural identity by seeking inspiration from the Hip-Hop and Punk music scene. He uses their urban vocabulary as a main source of inspiration for his work. Therefore preserving the scripture of the street beyond the digital realm and viewing himself as a modern day historian.

Markus Moestue

Markus Moestue | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

The Norwegian artist developed the completely bizarre mode of transportation to travel across the bible belt of Norway as a form of protest. Moestue explains, "It is a protest against the dogmatic religious education of children, and the idea originated from the theme-parks of creationists that teach children that humans and dinosaurs used to live together."

To create the project, the artist welded together three different bicycle frames to produce a unique vehicle that would support his intended concept. He used a basic kitchen knife to hand-carve the dinosaur shape out of styrofoam, producing the head and the tail of the animal separately. The material was coated with epoxy glue and a glass fiber coating and then painted reds and oranges to mimic the rough, scaly coat of a velociraptor.

Moestue attached the head and tail of the dinosaur to the bicycle and left space for himself in the middle. From a distance, the visual of the artist riding through town on the back of a dinosaur is quite unexpected and certainly makes a statement!
