GAP – from my StreetArt Series

MIND THE GAP

Visual musing on reality. Meaning is in the eye (mind?) of the beholder.

Early – HIP work – Madrid 2018

Early
A few minutes before owners set the room for the night patrons

Madrid, March 2018, La Latina Barrio, upstairs at Bar Hortera – I was too early to experience the night life at that fluo/glitter bar – Spaniards don’t even think about a night out until most of us are already in dreamland.

For this one, I still went heavy on textural accidents, but wanted to convey a feeling of a world-reality bubble.

Alice in Berlin – HIP Collection

Alice in Berlin
More appropriately – Alice in Berlinland

A painting started in 2015 and more or less finished in 2018 – Berlin in Winter impression, enhanced because the reality wasn’t nearly as interesting as this ;o)

Szimpla Kert – Animated Image

Szimpla Kert
One small area on the first floor of Szimpla Kert, the Budapest Ruin Bar

My own particular, very subjective and surrealistic take on the Szimpla Kert ruin bar in Budapest. When I went there, it was love at first sight. This is one small area on the first floor of the romkocsma, (means ruin pub in Hungarian), located in the Jewish Quarter of Budapest.

Obviously a day capture. The night scene here is a different beast. The animations (quite a few if you look closely) represent how I see that place. I would definitely have made this pub my personal hangout if I lived in Budapest!

An animated gif of 2 of my digital paintings, merged to create this spoof of exhaut fumes from Berlin’s U6 tram spilling outside of the photograph in an English pub.

Montepulciano – The Little Red Car

Montepulciano - Little Red Car
Little red car in a slanted alley in Montepulciano, Italy, 2017

I always explore off the beaten path when I am in an unknown place. Montepulciano is a very beautiful city but to me, the visual gems are hidden in nooks and crannies, up – or down – hills, in cul-de-sacs, or behind buildings. This red Fiat was parked behind a building up a steep slope from a more commercial and busy shopping street.

This was late afternoon, with the sun still heavily splashing the rooftops, but only partially getting to street level. The lighting was perfect. It added mood and even highlighted the appropriate areas. I couldn’t have wished for a nicer setting.

It was very quiet. No one around. Just me and my camera. I framed my shot and took the photograph. I knew I’d be working on this one.
