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.
