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.

dust: "darkdust" exhibition opening on 21st of august

August 12, 2009

Starting on the 21. of august we present a new and impressive exhibition by dust with the title "darkdust"

Dust's works open our eyes for a fragile and organic microcosm: For one moment it appears a fanciful picture that is vanished again with the next glance.

The works are focused on the vision of harmony between humans and nature. The abstract and reduced form of a human being, without its true identity - like animals in a consumer society. The artists style is a mixture of contemporary abstraction, surrealism and striking form and colour design.

Works are now not only seen in the streets of modern metropolises but also in contemporary galleries.

Next to the artists established work on canvas and paper there will also be his new serial of sculptures and designtoys. Recently those „Schergen“ were successfully presented in the New York Gallery "MyPlasticheart" for the first time.
