In conjunction with the Pictopia exhibition at the House of World Cultures Berlin, the cities galleries have organized the Pictopia Character Walk. Most galleries were open on Sunday for this event and I decided to check some of it out.
The first stop was Art Space Berlin where they had a large group show called Bigwood Berlin
These are a series of Silkscreen prints by Matias Viglioni. There was an entire wall of them, these are only some of the adventures of his monster character.
I forgot to write down this artists name
This guy was hanging out in the street on the way to FIT gallery.
The gallery was an abandoned gas station with an installation by Flying Fortress and London Police on the outside.
(My pictures were somehow corrupted so these are borrowed from ekosystem blog.)
This show titled "Heroes of Might and Mayb" by Michael Dabrowski was at General Public. The work featured small super heroes with large shadows, each accompanied by a phrase suggesting some sort of past emotional trauma. It did a good job of humanizing characters that we think of as beyond human.
The final stop of the day was Circle Culture Gallery. The work was by Charlie Isoe and the title of the show was "Will Be Home Late, Leave the Light On."
Later that week it was free night at the new national gallery. Here are some highlights from my trip there.
These are both by my favorite Italian painter ever Tiepolo. He possesses a looseness in his brush strokes that makes painting look just as easy as drawing.
The high definition paintings of Canaletto.
This is the dutch painter Philips Wouwerman.
That's all for now. Until next time...
