A new, three-part paper cut. Inspired by traditional chinese paper cuts and by the marvellous book “The History of Chinese Folk Paper-Cut Arts”, but above all from my current work as a Guest-Professor for Illustration/Digital Illustration at the Jishou University
May be it would be nice to see some more artworks of the
Supalife-exhibition in Berlin in detail. Here are four from above thirty colorful
collages from Adrian Wylezol. All
pieces are nearly 20 x 30 cm. „Traumzeuge“, „Ghettoblaster!“ or „Hello, who are
you“ for example are titles of his collages shown in the Supalife Kiosk until the end of September.
Working with paper cuts, the „drawing“ with scissor and cutter, leads to an ongoing interplay between line and object, inside and outside, black and white, positive and negative, light and shadow (good and evil?). Indeed a thrilling play with dualism!
Now I've finished a fine paper cut (original size 53 x 41 cm) for a forthcoming Poste Aérienne Book project. More informations soon!
Was ist eigentlich eine Graphic Novel? Bietet der Begriff vielleicht neue Möglichkeiten und Chancen um Geschichten zu erzählen und bildhaften Autorenschaften Freiraum zu geben? Werden dabei die narrativen Möglichkeiten einer Zeichnung – eines Bildes – unterschätzt? Oder ist der Begriff heute ausschließlich reines Marketingmittel?
Wissenschaftler, Zeichner (u.a. mit David von Bassewitz, Hannes Binder, Paula Bulling, Martin tom Dieck, Frank Flöthmann, Ute Helmbold, Dieter Jüdt, Judith Mall, Falk Nordmann),Verlagsvertreter und Feuilletonisten diskutieren zur Kultur des Erzählens mit Bildern vom 02.–04. Juli an der Hochschule für Bildende Künste (HBK) in Braunschweig. Das Programm zur Veranstaltung und weitere Infos findet man hier.

Some years ago Poste Aérienne started their first activities with the presentation of several handmade unique artist's books at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
Artist's books got their very own tradition in the history of art and bookmaking. They are actually more an artist's statement, manifestation of a personal artistic position and exploration than a regular book publication.
Now you can find various handmade books by our group members, in different forms and sizes, on our new publication site. Impressive examples of experimental and conceptual book-design.
Hello there, a little more than two weeks ago I started a daily drawing project. It is very similar to a graphic journal, lots of the images are inspired by current or past experiences, images that strike me somehow in daily life, or fictional events.
Poste Aérienne is a collective of mainly German and Belgian graphic artists.
Book art is our craft to bring you authentic and innovative illustration. We produce small press and unique books that you can find in selected bookshops, at the Frankfurt Book Fair and at Feuilles d'Art Artist Book Festival in Brussels.
