Munchies Art Club recommends 5 Instagram accounts worth checking out from this years Parallel Art Fair in Vienna.
The Parallel art fair was a wondrous event and unforgettable. ''Munchies Art Club'' was on location and met loads of new people - artists, art lovers and collectors.
The event inspired us to add a new section to our program - "Instagram Accounts to follow". With over 600 artistic positions there was so much to discover and it was overwhelming at times.
We decided to share 5 of our top art instagram accounts to explore, support and follow.
IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER:
1. APOLOGIZING MEN | THE MOST TALKED ABOUT!
Everyone was talking about the room of Apologizing men!
We loved it to and the girls were the best!

2. DOMI GRATZ | FROM BUDDING TO BLOOMING!

Gratz studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in the class of graphics and printmaking techniques.

The subject of her artwork is everyday things, influenced by her close social contacts, as well as thoughts and ideas, implementing them into her work using her own personal vocabulary.
3. ERNST LIMA | AND THE WINNER IS...
We congratulate the artist Ernst Lima, winner of this years PARALLEL VIENNA | Bildrecht YOUNG ARTIST Award 2021.
The talented contemporary artist was selected by an expert jury and rightly so, wonderful work and great presentation!
Ernst Lima is an artist who lives and works in Vienna, Austria.
E.L. works with a diverse range of media, including various printing techniques, photography, performance & sound installations in multi-layered collages, focusing on the themes of resonance and sensing.
She explores the interface between analog & digital media and the coherence of these colliding levels of perception.
The installation ‘HOLD YOUR HORSES‘ combines both auditory and visual elements.
The physical state of the installation alters ever so slightly when visitors enter the room, as their presence causes a reaction in the sculptural elements through frequencies and vibrations.
4. PHILIP MENTZINGEN | ARTIST WHO CAUGHT OUR EYE!
Philip Mentzingen is an artist who has been a supporter of the Munchies Art Club from the beginning. This year for the first time at the Parallel we were able to see his work in person. We fell in love with his Homer Simpson drawings and hope to soon call one of his works our own.
The Austrian artist, was born in Salzburg in 1976, and was presented at this years Parallel Art Fair by the gallery Tassilo Usner.
5. YOUNG CURATORS CLUB | THESE GIRLS KNOW THEIR STUFF!
Young Curators Club Vienna (YCC) is a newly founded association for aspiring curators.
The focus is on exchange and networking among like-minded people.
We also want to focus on self-organized exhibitions, where together as an association exhibition opportunities are found and a creative exchange among each other is promoted.
From the conception, location and lighting planning up to the Vernissage and Finissage, we would like to support each other. Discussions are organized with curators who work in museums, galleries or freelance.
Through the talks, the members of the association should gain an insight into the individual steps of curating, from conception to organization.
