SAM3 "Mask"
Monotype on Old Mill (300gsm)
35 x 35cm
1/1 (unique)
signed
now available at shop.xn--prettyportal-dlb.de/

The Spanish artist SAM3 is best known for his silhouette-like Murals. Some of them are high as a house and often refer to their direct, urban environment. SAM3’s paintings are ironic, poetic, but especially provocative. They discuss philosophical subjects, question habits of our daily life and refer to current social discourses.
Being reduced to few colours and a graphical style, the pictures have an extraordinary presence. The viewer is invited to examine the painting by its simplicity, that reveals their messages step by step. The paintings are dominated by figurative elements, which are in a metamorphose with their surroundings.
SAM3 works with symbols like e.g. roots or ladders. Figures with oversized heads are representative for his style.
The native Spain and Urban Art Artist currently lives in Murcia, but he paints worldwide – not only pictures but whole stories that he shows in experimental Stop Motion short films.

Parvati "Caladrius"
for the show ARDIF & Friends "Realm of ancient Mechanimals" starting this Friday (30th of April) at Pretty Portal.
Address info@prettyportal.de or send us a pm with you mail address to receive the catalog (PDF) of the show.

The Caladrius, Calandre or Caladre is a legendary and fabulous bird of the Middle Ages. It is very present in the bestiaries where it is described as having the size of a crow or a heron and possessing great healing powers. Thus, according to legend, any sick man whom the caladrius stared in the eyes was destined to live, while those from whom he looked away were doomed to die. Symbolically, the caladrius represents Christ, purity and virginity, his healing power also depending on the belief that we have in him.

The hybrid characters of the French-Indian artist Parvati are a mixture of human and bird. They open the door to a poetic dream that questions the relationship between the bizarre and the beautiful as well as the demarcation between humans and animals. In addition to the fauna, the flora is omnipresent in her works. This echoes the Amazonian forests in French Guiana where she was born and raised.
Parvati is inspired by the great masters of the Renaissance. This is also reflected in the painting technique she uses. She paints her figures exclusively in oil, while acrylic spray paints are mainly used in the backgrounds. Like ARDIF, she often uses paste-ups for her interventions in public space, i.e. works prepared in the studio, anthropomorphic birds on a human scale, which she then sticks in the streets.

Horor "Hippokampos"
for the show ARDIF & Friends "Realm of ancient Mechanimals" starting this Friday (30th of April) at Pretty Portal.
Address info@prettyportal.de or send us a pm with you mail address to receive the catalog (PDF) of the show.

The hippocampus, or "sea horse", originates from the Greek mythology. It is a fantastic creature whose front part is that of a horse, that is to say the head, the neck and the two front legs, and the rear part that of a fish, snake or sea monster. Described as sea horses, and living in the ocean, two or four of them pull Poseidon's chariot. Others were used as mounts by minor sea deities, such as Newts (or Tritones) and Nereus.

Horor found his way to art in early 2000 as a graffiti writer. After completing his studies in fine arts at the Sorbonne, he did not forget his roots, but developed a mix of typography and painting. In his visual language he skilfully combines the influences from the streets of the Parisian suburbs and a classical repertoire discovered at the academy. His works show influences from sensual surrealism, contemporary illustration and naturalistic drawing. Stylistically, they are characterized by calligraphic-inspired lines that flow through his creations in a wave-like, rhythmic manner.

Wer am Samstag auf der Brunnenstrasse ist, sollte mal bei Pretty Portal ins Schaufenster gucken. .Am Samstag mache ich eine... Performance namens "Specks in a Bubble" im PrettyPortal auf der Brunnenstraße von 14 bis 20 Uhr. Ich lege ein paar Schallplatten auf, predige ein wenig Vinyl vor mich her und mache vielleicht auch ein bischen die menschliche Jukebox. Ihr könnt' mir dabei zugucken und via Chat mittels Eurer Smartphones Fragen stellen, Kommentare liefern oder nach einem Date fragen.

Bis dann!

In Greek mythology, the Minotaur is a fabulous monster with the body of a man and the head of a bull or half-man and half-bull. Born from the loves of Pasiphaé (wife of King Minos) and a white bull sent by Poseidon, he is locked up by Minos in a labyrinth, located in the center of Crete. The labyrinth was specially designed and built by Daedalus, so that the Minotaur cannot escape and that no one finds out about its existence.
The Minotaurus was regularly fed with human flesh, specifically that of fourteen young Athenian noble men and women. These were sent as a sacrifice by the city of Athens to Minos on a yearly basis in recompense for the death of his son, Androgeus, whom the Athenians had once killed out of jealousy for beating them at the Panathenaic Games.
Theseus, son of Aegeus, the king of Athen, volunteered to go into the labyrinth and kill the the Minotaurus. Fortunately for him, Ariadne, Minos’ daughter, fell in love with him and decided to help him. She gave Theseus a ball of thread, which the hero used to navigate himself inside the structure and adter the fight find his way back out off the labyrinth. However, once the Minotaur was killed, Theseus forgot Ariadne.

The winged cat , a feline with wings like a bird, bat or other flying creature, is a theme in artwork and legend going back to prehistoric times. Later winged cats were found especially in ancient mythological depictions. Big cats, like lions,  with eagle wings are common in Eurasia and North Africa
Another example of winged cats is in the  Norse mythology : Freyja is a goddess associated with love, beauty, fertility, sex, war, gold. She rides a chariot pulled by two winged cats. But also in christian imagery and symbolism cats with wings are used. Here the lion with wings is known as the lion of St. Mark. The lion of Mark is the symbol of the evangelist Mark. The lion is ascribed to the evangelist Mark and is already mentioned in the Old Testament in the book of Ezekiel. The lion of St. Mark as a heraldic animal also has wings at shoulder height.

for the show "Realm of ancient Mechanimals" starting this Friday (30th of April) at Pretty Portal.
Address info@prettyportal.de or send us a pm with you mail address to receive the catalog (PDF) of the show.

Icarus is not a fabulous animal, but a very important and well known story of ancient greek mythology. As Parvati, one of ARDIF´s partner in crime for this show, mainly paints hybrid characters of human and birds, the idea for an Icarus Mechanimal was born.

ARDIF’s creations are modern mythical creatures. Mythical creatures also convey the ancient stories of mankind in a mystical way. In the exhibition “Realm of ancient Mechanimals”, ARDIF takes up these ancient stories and adds another narrative level to his fabulous animals. His creations have their origins in the myths and folklore of the most diverse cultures. His realm of the ancient Mechanimals includes the Japanese Kitsune, a multi-tailed masked fox that is considered a lucky charm, the Greek Pegasus, the winged horse that stands for wisdom and poetry, or a Jackalope, a hybrid of hare and pronghorn, which is very popular on the North American continent.

For an even more extensive discussion of the topic, ARDIF has invited four artist friends to join the discourse. In the process, collaborations have arisen, which extends the french artists view by the individual perspectives of the artist group formed for this exhibition. This group consists of Dzia, Horor, Parvati and Sandrot.

ARDIF "Pegasus Mechanimal"
As one of the best know fabulous animals the pegasus came straight to our mind, when I talked with ARDIF about a show with mythological Mechanimals for the first time.

The show which was originally planned for the end of November last year had to be postponed again and again. Now we just start in on 30th of April, no matter what. Hopefully we can have some visitors on the first day.

ARDIF’s creations are modern mythical creatures. Cyborgs, hybrid creatures of a biological organism and a Machina Obscura, a surreal symbiosis of medieval architecture and ancient mechanics. The machine part, which captivates the eye of the beholder with its multitude of details, romanticizes the first rather dystopian impression of the composition.
Fabulous beings have always been creatures whose outward appearance is shaped by human imagination. Many have their origins in the real world and are influenced by contemporary history. It is the same with ARDIF’s creations. The more and more unbalanced relationship between humans and nature, which in the short term represents a threat to our planet, but in the long term rather a threat to our species, is reflected impressively with the French urban artist works. But the increasing mechanization of our everyday life, digitization and the dawn of the age of machines are also reflected in his works.

What does DOPPELDENK mean? The concept of doublethink comes from George Orwell’s dystopian novel “Nineteen Eighty-Four” and describes the power of having two contradictionary beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.

Unlock the Idea of George Orwell’s novel from total Brain- wash and combine it with self-responsible human acting you can achieve a new complex form of thinking. In this case you are able to accept the connection of two contradictionary relations and, as a conclusion, to create an own new conviction. DOPPELDENK is not just a neologism deriving from the 1984 novel; Marcel Baer and Andreas Glauch are rather using this term as a motto for their offensive body of work, which at first sight creates a certain familiarity through its unconventional neon colors and references to pop- and sub-culture inspired themes. At second glance, however, the work appears more subversive. The Leipzig based duo uses the suggestive power of (mass cultural) symbolism, which in its creation, is usually represented as pictograms or idealized characters. @doppeldenk

DOPPELDENK is not just a neologism deriving from the 1984 novel; Marcel Baer and Andreas Glauch are rather using this term as a motto for their offensive body of work, which at first sight creates a certain familiarity through its unconventional neon colors and references to pop- and sub-culture inspired themes. At second glance, however, the work appears more subversive. The Leipzig based duo uses the suggestive power of (mass cultural) symbolism, which in its creation, is usually represented as pictograms or idealized characters. @doppeldenk

Otto Schade "Scissors, paper, Rock" AP Version, acrylic spray paint on paper, 60x60cm
available at Shop.prettyportal.de Otto Schade (also known as "Osh") is a London-based Chilean artist. Schade's works are influenced by abstract - surreal art and pop art. In 2009 he began to paint with the pseudonym "Osh" on the streets and especially in the British city center of Shoreditch (London). Using sophisticated stencil techniques, Osh developed a distinctive style. His figures are as if wrapped in ribbons, dissolve, find their form through the covering. Much of his works hold satirical messages to raise social awareness and reach the limits of human vision. #urban #contemporary #art #stencil #pochoir #streetart #urbanart #spraypaint #ap #artonpaper #artoninstagram #happy #collector #instaart #instagood #instagraff #instagrafite #instagraffiti #graff #yougonnaloveit #evolution #sarcasm #artwillsavetheworld #changeisgood #duesseldorf @otto_schade

This is the first detail of the upcoming release of Monkeybird´s latest screen print edition that will drop on 14th of April at shop.prettyportal.de
Address info@prettyportal.de for inquiries.

Monkeybird´s work show a search for balance between dreams and reality. Loaded with symbols and allegries, their pieces are an emotional and rational discussion about human progress. Most MonkeyBird artworks incorporate a humanoid monkey and bird, which represent the two faces of humankind, the monkey being the realist, and the bird being a dreamer. The artists try to follow the ancestor’s knowledge and adapt it to reach the modern citizens mind, with symbolic pictures. Monkeybird are inspired by ephemeral monumentality, religious and mythological paintings and art nouveaux.

The two artists met in the street of Bordeaux in 2009. One of them was looking for a change in his graffiti and the other a change in framework and identity. With a background in graphic design, as well as object and industrial design they developed an artistic aesthetic, which contains technique-driven stenciling. collages, spray painting, drawing, carving, silkscreen printing and engraving.

A hidden gem from our shop:
Claudio Ethos "Impetus"

Claudio Ethos is a Brazilian urban artist. His work is often twisted manipulation of images and landscapes with abstract and surreal tendencies that explore the more spiritual side of the artistic process.
As he likes to say, his characters try to depict emotional and spiritual states because there are no accurate definitions for so many of these sensations – they just appear and he just tries to translate these things that are captured only by intuition.
His technique first involves working in sketch books and on canvases with a ballpoint pen, just to translate those meticulous drawings onto the concrete for all to see. By mapping narratives, Ethos depicts characters found all over the city; they are often anxious, struggling through a cramped, concrete megalopolis, but persevering nevertheless. It is obvious that his inspiration is rooted in the streets and generated from experience, dreams, and memory.

Since 11th of December, we are showing an installation by Düsseldorf based urban artist L.E.T. entitled "How is this happening?” In his work, L.E.T. reflects upon the situation of the refugees stranded at the gates of Europe. He uses life jackets as his medium and shows how this symbol of hope is transformed on the journey of most refugees.

L.E.T. travelled to Lesbos a few months ago and visited the "life jacket graveyard", a landfill of harrowing dimensions where the life jackets left behind by refugees end up. The unreal image of this eerie place, which he had already seen three years ago in a documentary, never left him. During his stay on Lesbos he paid the “life jacket graveyard” a visit, spoke with refugees and helpers from the organisation "The Hope Project", forming his own picture of the situation.

After his return, three body bags were sewn from the life jackets he had collected on Lesbos. These are the central element of the installation and show the transformation of hope into mourning. They bear witness to the journey of a myriad of people fleeing inhumane conditions, a journey that meets its cruel end at the gates of Fortress Europe.

Especially in the pre-Christmas season the work brings to mind the image of the manger. A couple with child who were not welcome anywhere and were forced to seek refuge in a barn. In about 2000 years, predominantly Christian Europe has not yet internalised its own core values of philanthropy and charity, values that are celebrated once again this year during Christmas and find their main expression in an abundance of material gifts.

L.E.T. was accompanied on his journey by artist Laura Knapp and cameraman Chris Schwarz. Schwarz documented the artist's stay and the situation on site. The film, which is also part of the installation, can be viewed here. (vimeo.com/485174602/c36a9b9770).

Since 11th of December, we are showing an installation by Düsseldorf based urban artist L.E.T. entitled How is this happening?” In his work, L.E.T. reflects upon the situation of the refugees stranded at the gates of Europe. He uses life jackets as his medium and shows how this symbol of hope is transformed on the journey of most refugees.  L.E.T. travelled to Lesbos a few months ago and visited the life jacket graveyard, a landfill of harrowing dimensions where the life jackets left behind by refugees end up. The unreal image of this eerie place, which he had already seen three years ago in a documentary, never left him. During his stay on Lesbos he paid the “life jacket graveyard” a visit, spoke with refugees and helpers from the organisation The Hope Project, forming his own picture of the situation.  After his return, three body bags were sewn from the life jackets he had collected on Lesbos. These are the central element of the installation and show the transformation of hope into mourning. They bear witness to the journey of a myriad of people fleeing inhumane conditions, a journey that meets its cruel end at the gates of Fortress Europe.  Especially in the pre-Christmas season the work brings to mind the image of the manger. A couple with child who were not welcome anywhere and were forced to seek refuge in a barn. In about 2000 years, predominantly Christian Europe has not yet internalised its own core values of philanthropy and charity, values that are celebrated once again this year during Christmas and find their main expression in an abundance of material gifts.

L.E.T. “How is this happening !?”

Unter dem Titel „How is this happening !?“ zeigen wir im Pretty Portal eine Installation des Düsseldorf Urban Art Künstlers L.E.T..
Die Ausstellung istz im vorderen Raum der Galerie zu sehen. Man kann sie durch das Schaufenster anschauen. Kunt und Kultur trotz Shtdown.

In seiner Arbeit reflektiert L.E.T. die Situation der Flüchtlinge vor den Toren Europas. Dabei verwendet er als Arbeitsmaterial Rettungsschwimmwesten und zeigt, wie sich dieses Symbol der Hoffnung auf der Reise der meisten Flüchtlinge transformiert.

L.E.T. ist vor einigen Monaten nach Lesbos gefahren und hat dort den „Friedhof der Rettungswesten“ besucht. Dabei handelt es sich um eine riesige Müllhalde, auf der von Flüchtlingen zurückgelassene Schwimmwesten, gesammelt werden. Das unwirkliche Bild, welches er bereits vor drei Jahren in einer Reportage gesehen hatte, liess ihn nicht mehr los. Bei seinem Aufenthalt auf Lesbos hat er diesen Ort besucht, mit Flüchtlingen und Helfern der Organisation „The Hope Project“ gesprochen und sich ein eigenes Bild gemacht.
Aus den auf Lesbos gesammelten Schwimmwesten hat er nach seiner Rückkehr drei Leichensäcke nähen lassen. Diese sind das zentrale Element der Installation und zeigen die Verwandlung von Hoffnung in Trauer. Sie stehen für die Reise einer Unzahl von Menschen, die auf der Flucht vor unmenschlichen Zuständen an den Toren der Festung Europa ein grausames Ende findet.

Beim Betrachten der Arbeit drängt sich gerade in der vorweihnachtlichen Zeit das Bild der Krippe auf. Die Eltern mit dem Kind waren nirgendwo willkommen und mussten in einer Scheune Zuflucht suchen. Das vorwiegend christliche Europa hat in ca. 2000 Jahren das Konzept der Nächstenliebe, dass im weihnachtlichen Fest mit vielen materiellen Zuwendungen auch dieses Jahr wieder gefeiert wird noch nicht verinnerlicht.

Auf seiner Reise wurde L.E.T. von der Düsseldorfer Künstlerin Laura Kanpp und dem Kameramann Chris Schwarz begleitet. Schwarz hat den Aufenthalt des Künstler und die Situation vor Ort dokumentiert. Den Film, der ebenfalls Teil der Installation ist, kann man sich hier anschauen. (vimeo.com/485174602/c36a9b9770).
In der Ausstellung „How is this happening?“ zeigt L.E.T. auch einige Leinwände in denen sich seine Erlebnisse auf Lesbos widerspiegeln.
