Billy Hayes

Chicken Billy is an artist and designer Billy Hayes from Fort Worth, Texas, U.S.A. How he makes art: Keep it simple and real while being honest and natural. His recipe: Take Hanna Barbera, Hulk Hogan, James Brown, Fort Worth Zoo, B.B. King, Hank Williams III, Jesus Christ, mix until the image is bright like an angel. Add a pair of cowboy boots and a pair of jeans, some Mexican beer, your choice and put them all on a surface only using flat vector shapes. Well then... there you have it. Tastes like Chicken!

Jorge Chamorro “The first time I heard the expression “la cáscara amarga” was in the summer of 2005, I was speaking with my grandmother, who is a right-wing person that goes to church, but she is a gem. She mentioned that old expression referring to left-wing people, the people with a critical thinking about establishment. In those days I was finishing my first collage series and for me it was the most critical thing I ever saw, so I thought that “la cáscara amarga” could define very well the spirit of those collages. Also, at that time I was going to begin to work by myself as a freelance graphic designer, after ten years of working for others. And I wanted (and I still want) my professional activity to be coherent with my way of understanding the world, I didn’t want that the essence of those collages got lost

in the daily battle of earning money in this trade so close to devil. Although I didn’t look for a name for my new studio, it had to be named somehow, and considering the way I wanted to focus my business on and the way of my personal work, “la cáscara amarga” sounded good to me. Now, after all this long story, many times I’ve been asking myself if it could be more simple and logical to call me by my name, but the fact is that “La Cáscara Amarga” is what it’s written in my business cards.”

Carlos Alvarez Cabrero

Carlos Alvarez Cabrero is a 42-year old illustrator from Oviedo, Spain. He earns a living from his paintings and engravings, which allows him to do the kind of work he wants. He makes low cost videofilms too, mostly for the fun of it, as it gives no money (but not video art, that he dislikes). A lot of his paintings (drawings etc.) have much to do with his home town and environment and there are often funny or ironic texts in the pictures.

Melissa Murillo Melissa Murillo, also known under her alias Meyoko, is an artist based in Berlin, Germany. Obsessed with details, ephemera, nature, and dreams, she grew up on a visual diet of the strange trips in her books from amazons. The relationship between man and machine is another obvious fascination as she often juxtaposes organic and mechanical images to form surreal and whimsical narratives. Birds, insects and organisms are also a common theme in her illustrations. Her work has been exhibited in Berlin and featured in fashion and lifestyle magazines in Paris, London, New York, Greece, Rome, New Zealand... “When I’m drawing, my mind and my soul begin to get lost, totally submerged in the process and before long, hours have gone by unawares. But to me, art, in any form is what gives us a sense of who we are, a peak into our imaginations and the passionate desires that make us individual. It’s almost like a mold; as I pour myself into it what comes out is a solid piece of who I am and the more I develop in this area, the more expressive I become. It is akin to singing from the depths of your soul. It flows in much the same way. I truly believe that whenever a person is born he’s given the gift of creativity and an artistic ability (or abilities) in which to express themselves in a way that no one else can precisely duplicate”.

Yuji Yamada

Yuji Yamada was born in 1985 in Kamakura, Japan. He lives and works in Kawasaki city. He wanted to become a web designer, so he studied at a professional school in Tokyo after graduating from high school. But very soon he became sick of digital design because all the work was done by PC. So Yuji decided to become a painter or illustrator. “There is nothing but the reality of battling appearance of athletes. I do cut out such scene, I want to keep drawing a picture of the planar yet realistic. I just like sports. Sports is everything.”

Indjila Samad Ali “My works are the best ones to comment on my personality, though they may not seem explicit from the first glimpse.  Everything inside me is reproduced through abstract forms, therefore my works are slightly lacking straighforwardness. Each and every new object I depict helps me to know myself better. The art I am making at the moment is an attempt to better comprehend my personal inner space. Through understanding the inner space I can better understand the world surrounding me which corresponds with the intention to entrench into Art most deeply. And the Art, in its turn, is the most primordial thing I’ve got into.”

David Kassan “My work is a way of meditation, a way of slowing down time though the careful observation of overlooked slices of my environment inhebited by my acquaintances and their subtle emotions. My paintings try to mimic life in both scale and complexity. The viewer is given an eye level perspective of the subject. A view that is unbiased and in its most raw condition. It is my intent to control the medium of oil paint to the extent that the image stands alone without evidence of the artist. I displace textures from their natural environment by moving them out of the context. By turning an ordinary painting surface into a textured trompe l’oeil documentation of the city or turning the surface into a life sized representation of a figure in space that transmits feeling this technical process allows for the viewer’s experience to be altered. The thoughts behind my chosen subject matter. My effort is to constantly learn to document reality with a naturalistic, representational painting technique which allows for pieces to be inherent contradictions, paintings that are both real and abstract. My influences are the work of life size old master paintings, urban stencil and graffiti street art, Marcel Duchamp’s found objects, abstract paintings by Robert Rauschenberg, and finally the sheer conceptual and executed realism of Caravaggio.

Dido Fontana Born in Italy in the early 70s Dido Fontana grew up surrounded by his dad’s camera and art works, doing himself art with different media, reading the big giants and looking at every kind of imagery. In this way in his mind increased an extraordinary heterogenic plethora of images you now can find in his photos which represent not only a figure and where there’s no message but a world. His soul is baroque and his eye is damned and voyeuristic but his style is raw and sexy, fashion and anti-fashion at the same time. But first of all it is direct and pure, without alternations or embellishments. You can have a taste of it in his book just published: 160 color pages, on high quality shining paper, full of references and links, deep and strong and that you can also leaf through only having fun.

Frederike Wetzels

Frederike Wetzels was born in 1988 in North Germany. She is a student of photography in Dortmund but started to work on this series during her exchange to the University of Plymouth in 2009.  Since that time she is interested in the idea of photography as a “reality of the second degree”.  Its closeness to the real and though the capacity to transform the real into a new layer of narrative fascinates her a lot. Thus in her latest architecture and landscape studies she considers any place a psychologically charged space as much as she works with the portrait as philosophical construct too. In this way her recent pictures seek and provoke questions about longing and belonging and the balance between nature and the city.

“Nowhere” Nowhere is an ambiguous yet ubiquitous space. It exists in our civic decorations and our commercial landscape as irresponsible and irrelevant ornamentation. We see these scenes every day but rarely acknowledge their functional purpose or aesthetic value. Through these photographs I am seeking answers to questions regarding the psychology of our civic landscape. Critically, I want to examine the ironic and garish nature of the spaces that surround us and better understand the attenuated value of such places. By drawing the viewer into the banal I wish to confront the illusion that these environments are important and of interest. This frail illusion is meant to dissolve quickly; unveiling impotence and benign decoration. Those long, promising paths that once led us into the horizon have been cleared, leveled and paved repeatedly. Following the rhythm of progress our civic body ceaselessly expands. The horizon draws near— collapsing in on us—and it is becoming more and more clear that we have arrived nowhere in particular.

“Channels” This work is a visual inquiry into the personal spaces where our televisions reside. This point of contact between the viewer and the world has become customary in contemporary culture, facilitating the exchange of information and the satisfaction of certain desires. In recent years we have developed a collective and public eagerness to peer into each others’ lives; we see this in our entertainment, news and the Internet.   If we view these spaces passively and voyeuristically, the way we view the world through the television, certain questions arise. How are we viewing one another and through which lenses? Through which lens do we find greater authenticity, honesty and clarity?  This developing dialogue between the perspectives of the viewer, the photographer are intriguing and revealing. As these lenses are realized, and then fold into one another, the viewer can make discoveries of their own—perspectives and criticisms that illuminate truer and more honest forms in these portraits— where the television is not longer the crux of our understanding.

Leninbäk

LENINBÄK is a photography studio + painting + design + video. Created by a photographer and visual director, and a plastic artist and graphic designer. Originated from the need to integrate everything we do and want to say. The starting point of each work is a concept, aesthetic and theoretical.

Valerie Phillips

“I met Amber when she was 15. She came to my studio for a casting. She was quiet and feisty at the same time, and kind of bratty and fascinating. I loved her slow-paced, drawn out Kentucky sentences, so perfectly out of place in East London. And I really liked how she didn’t seem to give a shit. She was just Amber and that was good enough. I met her again when she was 18. She was back in London running around being a model. She showed up to meet me one morning looking wrecked and glow-inthe-dark pale. You could just about see through her. She looked like the star of a 70s horror film, harrowed and mesmorisingly beautiful. I walked her to her first casting of the day. On the way she cashed travellers cheques to buy cigarettes, Dr. Pepper and a tuna sandwich. At the casting six grown ups sat around a table eating crisps and flicking through Amber’s model book, saying nothing to her the entire time.

Amber is 19. She used to be a model. Earlier in the year she quit to become a surgical technician. On the way to a photo shoot in New York, she changed her mind, cut off her hair and dyed it orange so she didn’t have to be a model anymore. Now she lives in Kentucky, in the town where she grew up. Surrounded by highways, fast food chains and endless cornfields. Her favourite band is the Beatles. If you wanted to know what Amber will look like next tuesday, you’d have to fly to Kentucky. She might have another tatoo, like the giant angel wings she got on her back, a few weeks after I saw her last. She might have shaved

her head, or taken out her cheek piercings, or dyed her hair green, or be wearing a wig or a bikini or a halloween costume. You could still recognise her by her sci-fi blue eyes and her endlessly inquisitive stare. There is a lot of stuff in Amber’s head, lots of creative mix and match thoughts bouncing around and into each other. So much so that she runs from elated to sullen and back in short bursts of time. While many people tend to hide their internal growing pains, Amber reflects hers outwardly, so you can always catch a glimpse of chaos and learning and mistake making and imagination that is Amber. Always unpredictable and inspiring.”

Winkler +Noah For Winkler+Noah photography was the most fitting point of arrival for an artistic itinerary that they began instinctively from childhood, exploring all the forms of expression that they encountered — painting, drawing and sculpture — amalgamating them and trying out blends between different media. This creative need for self-expression matured over the years, first becoming curiosity and then a strong will to create and to photograph. After a professional detour as an illustrator and graphic designer, Noah met Winkler and this acted as a detonator, producing a mixture fusing traditional photography with experimentation. What their pictures reveal is a sensation of hyper-reality: the protagonists of their portraits appear in a real context, but they stand out from it as if highlighted by reality itself. They are stark, intense photos because each single picture encloses an idea and conveys powerful emotions to the observer. The artists deal personally with post-production so that the creative process joins up with itself like a circle. They have received recognition all over the world and their works are been exhibited in New York, London and Milan.
