Pinned toot

It's time for an update of my , so here we go: Hi, I'm an from Germany, exploring and in all sorts of ways. A .ist by heart, after spending literal decades with monochromatic drawing, I switched to acrylic paint and have never looked back. I'm walking the line between and and enjoy abstract and .
I sometimes do , but is what I enjoy the most!

Things to know about me and patience:
I always bring a hairdryer with me to the studio, because I just don't have the nerve to wait for paint* to dry.

*) Acrylic paint. You know, the one that's dry in 10 minutes.

Today was shipping day and it was very exhausting. I've packed alllll of the artworks the days before (some of them were framed, oh wait, I had to frame those first, too), and I must say I didn't like it a bit. The lady at our nearest post office is a real pain in the ass! Can't wait for fame to finally arrive so I can pay someone to do this...

I also want to tell you that the quality of the fude brush does matter, ooooh, it does matter so much. I have two, one was a noname one and one was from the brand Léonard. The first one is way too floppy and soft, the second one is *delicious*. If you're considering buying a fude, I'd say go for that one!

I just wanted to share with you this beautiful shot of my tools. Because they are so beautiful.

Can fedi give me artists to peruse, preferably boost if they have alt text?

I'm not really into furry art, but I'm not hostile to it.

I just want to see cute stuff, video game fan-art, etc?

:boost_ok:

Art is very much a product of its society, and the material forces that govern it. Personally, I get a lot of political focus by thinking about the sort of art and artists we're aiming for.

My favorite conversation I ever had about politics was not about politics. It was a discussion of how, in a world post capitalism, where society has reorganized around more equitable lines, how film would work. Who would get to make movies? What sort of resources would they have? What kind of stories would they be interested in?

A quick overview of this phase. First painting of this kind is the big one on top, followed by the 2 top left ones, then the two top right ones. After that, the two on the bottom left, then bottom right, the lastet ond is the big one on the bottom.
I can see the progression here.

I just counted, and I painted 52 of these abstract expressionistic gestural calligraphy paintings this month.
Fifty-two.
🤯

That's one of the reasons I sell my paintings without framing.
The others are: they are more easy to ship with a smaller footprint, they are more affordable, and the collector can decide how they want to see the painting on their walls.

I have a question for people of the Fediverse that never lived in France and for which French isn’t their native language.
What do you associate with French music? What bands or artists came to your made if I ask you to think about French music?
I would be really interested to know the answer, so feel free to boost.

Hello. I took some selfies in my tiny studio with some of my art. (eye contact)
