Hello! I feel it's time for an updated #introcuction. I'm an #artist from Germany, exploring the boundaries between #abstractArt and naturalistic #traditionalArt. My art is usually colorful and energetic, and I like to use modern tools like acrylic #spraypaint, #markers and combine them with "traditional" #acrylicPaint and ink.
I sometimes still do #urbanSketching or #drawing. But #painting is what I currently enjoy the most!
OMG! Look what arrived in the mail! It's the Urban Abstraction Tarot!
The quality is really quite good, the cards are printed nicely and cut very precisely. "The Hermit" must be one of the cards where the printer struggled the most with my strange colors and weird contrasts, but even that one is quite good! #tarot #mastoArt #AprilArtJourney
I'm so happy about the opportunity, so grateful. But I'm so stressed out about how to achieve this. I've wrecked my brain for the last day, and the easiest way would probably be to sew some kind of backing into to and bottom for stability and hang it that way. Without framing for the moment. Oh my...
I was asked to lend some paintings to the town hall where my exhibition starts next week. Problem is: I don't have them ready to be displayed. I paint on unstretched canvas for various reasons, and if I want to display them, I first need to find a way to do so.
And I only have about a week to get things done, and my week is already filled with a birthday party, a trip to Frankfurt book fair, hanging my paintings for my exhibition, and the vernissage! And I'm as good as out of vacation days...!
Just like intellectuals made 'queering' into a toothless thought experiment that doesn't really effect queers, they seem to be doing the same to the verb 'decolonize'.
To decolonize means to stop the process of colonialism and get the colonist out.
So you can't decolonize a museum by changing the wording of the signs, you have to actually return the stolen art, ALL of it.
You can't decolonize Anthropology by writing papers. You have to actually stop studying POC to advance your white career.
I've come a long way from "I'm just not good with colors, I should stick to pencil drawings". And this is hard work. 0% talent. I've worked for years almost exclusively on coloration, getting a feeling for colors. Sometimes working on artist quick sketches, sometimes for weeks on the same painting. It is worth it.
If you're currently struggling with learning something new, please let me tell you: You can do this. You can!
You know what's the toughest part in being an artist? For me, it's coming out of my comfortable hiding hole of anonymity and standing by my work in public. Waiting for strangers to throw rotten tomatoes at me or - worse - laugh at me. Ah, the horrors of being an artist... #artistProblems #artistLife
So I decided to make another run of those tees 🐺
They're up for preorder here: https://www.mercht.com/c/divinewolf
They're sold directly by the printer, and the good thing is you can choose either long or short sleeves!
The design will be screenprinted in white on black tees (couldn't make the moon silver this time)
Hey, y'all. The Asexual Journal is currently taking submissions on aromantic identity:
"Submissions may intersect with topics such as deconstructing romance, navigating romantic expectations, expressions of aromantic identity, sociological analyses of aromanticism, and more. Submissions may include poetry, artwork, essays, abstract work, and more."
The deadline is November 15th. I'll be writing about voidpunk.
