David Monllor - Fade into nothing

February 12, 2014

 

To kick off the year we show works by David Monllor .

David Monllor was born in 1987 as the son of an Italian mother and a Spanish father in the Swiss canton of Aargau , where he still lives and works. Already in his early childhood, he discovered his passion and fascination with the figurative representation and painting.

At the age of twelve he comes for the first time with the subculture "Graffiti " in contact that has a lasting impact on David Monllors works. He travels abroad, working with lots of urban artsist and painting countless murals.
As an autodidact he refined and developed his techniques with the spray into total perfection. Hyper Realistic portraits are his trademark.

In the search for new forms of expression he discovered his fascination for painting with oil. His current work moves between meticulously drawn photorealistic paintings to abstract portraits that dissolve explosively and create an entirely new aesthetic in the eye of the beholder.

In his surrealistic imagery puppets, robots, toys and ancient creatures merge together, alluding to large brands of commerce, superheroes and known pop icons, that a are in a process of ongoing disintegration. Pixelpancho succeeds in convincing not only because of its eye-catching painting skills, but also because of his unique style, which draws on various and diverse sources.

LAGUNA: Harvest of times that go away leaving signs without memory

September 25, 2012

In october Pretty Portal will show works from Laguna, who is one of the outstanding protagonists of the spanish urban art scene. His large-size murals can already be found on various buildings in Spain, Brazil and the USA. Last year Laguna participated in the Cityleaks Festival in Cologne and left his marks for the first time in Germany.



In his works the Spaniard Laguna concerns himself with the varying pictures, which people usually create of each other.
As Laguna himself says „there are different persons that every one of us is carrying inside him-or herself, how they relate to each other and to other persons in the outside world.“
According to those deviant positions the interaction between people results in divergent layers of reality. Added to those layers there are surreal moments, that break with the steady and constant everyday life.

ecb - Hendrik Beikirch : Faces of hope and struggle

June 10, 2010

Starting on the 18th of june, Pretty Portal shows new works by ecb - Hendrik Beikirch. Large sized Portraits are in the focus of the presentation, which already impressed the visitors of stroke02 artfair in munich two weeks ago.

On his travels Hendrik Beikirch drafted charismatic people, who caught his eye because of a special expression of hope and struggle. Such as a pizza baker out of Brooklyn/ new York and a factory work out of the Ukraine.
 
The portraits are reduced on the person and shows them frontal. In form and content there is an approximation to the biometrical exposure used in up-to-date passport photography. This is contrasted by the draft like painting method that Hendirk Beikirch developed in the last years. In this procedure he mixes spraypaint, acrylic paint and water to create the impression of an oversized watercolour paiting on the canvas.
