GERMANY: Alexander Grauberger – ART Archiv

Being able to exhibit as an artist in a gallery or even in a museum is a long and difficult journey. Due to socio-culturally shaped exclusivities such doors are opened to a few. Through relationships, the academic career, the finances, by luck or really the absolutely outstanding talent and a lot of hard work it already works, but there are not so many galleries and exhibition venues.

GERMANY: MusicVideoPainter – TO5Z

His name is actually Tomasz. Take the first two and the last two letters, the „s“ is converted to „5“ and the artist name is finished. TO5Z is a hobbyist, a creative, whose artistic works pervades several genres. Generally he produces music, but then combines the result with visuals. As a painter, he makes a picture, a graphic or a collage for his track. This portrait, in turn, then acts as a catalyst for the final puzzle piece of his project work during the creation: a high-quality music video. The works are thus created in an extensive reciprocal process in the mind of the artist, in his workshop, in the studio and at locations. The results are awesome.

Maybe a bit clumsy as well, but more in social and people issues. The childhood was a nightmare and psychic confusions are still present, therefore I have a different and in some ways more sensible view for life, people and things. Altogether there are several eccentric and extravagant habits existent. Tata! The perfect character and history which are needed to be an artist. And that´s what I meanwhile became.
