PARALLEL VIENNA - Bud Art Room - Sebastian Schager

SEP 24 - SEP 29, 2019
Parallel Vienna, Lassalestrasse 5, 1020 Vienna

Jan Arnold Gallery curator and artist Sebastian Schager will present an Artist Statement at the Parallel Art Fair 2019. - Sponsored by Bud Beers.
PARALLEL VIENNA takes place for the seventh time in Vienna from 24th to 29th September 2019 and sticks to its approach of using temporarily vacant buildings as a presentation platform for contemporary art. This year PARALLEL VIENNA takes place in a former office building at LASSALLESTRASSE 5, 1020 Vienna.
Instead of the usual booths at art fairs, each exhibitor occupies a separate room of the building in which the exhibition is presented. These site-specific artworks and interventions are the trademark of PARALLEL VIENNA and make the fair a unique and alternative exhibition format outside the “white cube".

An artist living and working in Brooklyn NY. Early on he picked up skateboarding, and he immersed himself within the subculture. Designing tshirts, skateboard graphics, and skateboarding in local shop videos. He eventually went on to design over 200+ board graphics for skateboard companies from Norway, Russia, England, and all over the US and rest of the world. His art as well as himself skateboarding appeared in numerous skateboard magazines including Thrasher.
Adopting the moniker of Wizard Skull and abandoning freelance design work, he began wheat pasting his art all around New York. One of his most often wheat pastes was "Sexy Ronald", a buff version of Ronald McDonald wearing only underwear with fries popping out of them. People began photographing and sharing images of it on social media which led to the image going viral several times, being bootlegged and sold on tshirts in Thailand. This also led to his art being exposed to a larger audience.

The Viennese fine artist Julia Faber comments in her work on the technical evolution of the human body. She describes the vacillation between alleged necessity, perfection and dependence on these technical enhancements. Through their creative negation of the natural real devices and historical and centemporary inventions drift off into a surrealistic image. Julia  Faber interprets technology a spacer to the human body.

Rudolf Fitz aka. grundieweiss_vienna, born 1989 in Vienna, is artist and graphic designer. He started with graffiti about 12 years ago, his interest in art grows more and more, since a few years he is doing his art also on canvas. In the beginning he followed an abstract, expressive style, but it developed to a clear, figurative style on the one hand and on the other hand, into a straight, colorful and geometric style for the other part of his artwork. The main part of his art refers on the classical charme of vienna, most of it is fictitious. He prefers using oil color for his paintings.

Ben Reyer is a collage artist who subverts popular imagery to create fantastical combinations. In his slice and dice technique he uses vintage posters, books, magazines, and other printed matter. Always made by hand, his collages are pieces of history, made for the future, critiquing the now. The artist, born in 1985 in Vienna, Austria, grew up in Los Angeles. He earned his Bachelor of Geography Degree at UCLA in 2008, traveled the world, and now lives and works in Vienna.

Daan Lievense (1986). Living and working in Vienna. Studied multimedia art with the focus on spatial works and installations in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Currently focussed on painting and sculpture. Works are drawn from common images and ideas in daily life.
