The motifs Girl and Dog are central motifs in Graessle's artistic oeuvre and part of her exploration of everyday (pop) culture.

In recent years, Wiens has focused on icons of pop culture in his sculptures.

Thus, his pop sculptures, some of which are meters high, are shadowy treatises of hyper-present (anti-)heroes and (non- )phenomena such as Mickey Mouse and Batman.

The artist cuts his figures out of a Styrofoam block with the help of a chainsaw and hot wire before pouring chemical solvent over them and finally recycling them.

The result is a biting, etched surface that marks the piece. 

This mold is cast in aluminum and then painted. Mickey Mouse consequently looks like she took a shower of acid rain.

Wiens sculptures observe, comment on, question, and ironize social and socio-cultural conditions. In doing so, they address the tension between power and vulnerability.

Graessle paints what surrounds her and she likes to paint without thinking, always surrounded by music.

Thus her art is intuitive and inspired by all what captures her interest: animals, nature, fashion, films, books, news, as well as feelings, music and imaged from childhood up to now, without restrictions.

The artist starts her work intuitively with or without an idea. It takes then on a life of its own, goes somewhere else entirely.

Often, she develops the ideas from her drawings and transform them into paintings. 

Therefore, Graessle’s paintings are colorful, figurative, kitsch and large, sometimes with text, mostly 180x260 cm, done with acrylic, spray and sometimes glitter.

Furthermore she loves large paintings, as well as she likes to be surrounded by her imagery, to immerse completely in her world of images.

Thus, a collaboration between the friends Graessle and Wiens is only logical and consequential. 

The result is a mixture of both artistic oevres - Wiens cutouts and Graessle's paintings.

The works are sketchy and blunt, yet lyrical in their approach.

Thus, the sculpture gives the feeling of a finished considered thought, but still interrupted and through its roughness for the viewer to associate freely.

Curated by Bjorn Stern for Galerie Kandlhofer, the exhibition "Weltgeist" examines the influence of humanism and its development over time.

"Water" by Artist Vivian Greven at Neue Galerie Gladbeck
In her exhibition WATER, artist VIVIAN GREVEN reveals a series of large-scale paintings depicting different moments of birth. Greven paints birth explicitly, depicting it in itself, as an act of action. And despite the explicit pictorial subjects, it seems as if time stands still in the paintings: they hold something infinite.
Alfred Barsuglia at Gallery 3
Munchies Art Club is thrilled to share Alfredo Barsuglia's first solo exhibition "Pille" at Galerie3 in Austria features paintings, objects, and large pneumatic pills. The exhibition offers a unique and fantastic spatial experience, with clear and poetic image motifs and graffiti sprayed directly onto the gallery walls.
Darja Shatalova at Bildraum 07 Vienna
Our eyes, restlessly moving, almost dancing, follow the lines and diagonals shooting from the core in multiple directions. Every single line of colourful fabrics, hand-written expressive notes, tokens of systems, symbols or other visual aids imply a passionate, deep dive into unexplored topics. An information cluster instantly triggers our fantasy. What are these? The eager notes of an explorer, accounts from a diary, mental maps, or obsessive doodles with signs of automatism combined with an intentional loss of control?
