Press text:

TRONIES, also known as "character heads“, explore the spectrum of human physiognomy and expression of emotions: often also half figures, whose faces are portrayed as realistically as they are expressively strong.

In the past, TRONIES were characterized by a particularly virtuoso use of artistic means and reflected characterological ideas that belong to the early history of psychology.

These works are not intended as portraits but as studies of expression, type, physiognomy or an interesting character such as an old man or woman, a young woman, the soldier, the shepherdess, the oriental, or an artist etc.

"Don't fight your demons. Your demons are here to teach you lessons. Sit down with your demons and have a drink and a chat and learn their names and talk about the burns on their fingers and scratches on their ankles. Some of them are very nice." (Charles Bukowski)

"I never painted dreams. 

I painted my own reality.

I paint self-portraits 

because I am so often alone, 

because I am the person 

I know best.

So absurd and fleeting is our step through this world, that only leaves me at peace knowing that I have been authentic, that I have managed to be the most similar to myself." (Frida Kahlo)

New at Munchies Art Club magazine

Curated by Bjorn Stern for Galerie Kandlhofer, the exhibition "Weltgeist" examines the influence of humanism and its development over time. Seven international artists, including Janine Antoni, Reza Aramesh, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and the renowned late Hermann Nitsch, employ their individual techniques to shed light on the theme.
"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?
