ArtOne | Aerosol HandStyles
“A picture always has to match the interior. Not only because of the art, it has to be art in itself, but for me the aspect that art also suits the interior is important. This is very important. It takes a good look for art to fit into the environment. That there is always a connection somewhere.” (ArtOne, 2021)
ArtOne: That's two words combined into one with a powerful statement. The writer's pseudonym is embedded in a network of colorful lines that condense into energy centers and create tension on the picture surfaces. Welcome to the exhibition Aerosol HandStyles ArtOne im OZM HAMMERBROOKLYN. With incredible ingenuity and an artistic flair ArtOne his signature to show his skills. Eagerly like a researcher, he consistently declines his signature in the exhibition rooms in a style mixture of tag and calligraphy. Since there are also pictures from his earlier creative years there, the artistic development can ArtOnes can be understood very well. The tagging, the different forms of representation of its letters and the development of different writing styles are all content that you can learn from Aerosol HandStyles Can be found. If you take the time, you can very well see the change in the writing styles of ArtOnes Identify letters.
That the tag and also the font development takes up most of the space in ArtOnes pictures is very easy to see, since writing is the primary subject of the exhibition. In addition to the various possible shapes of the letters, he is also interested in new impulses that he gains while painting. The subject of the day is not yet "finished" for the artist, since he keeps finding new things when making his pictures. These discoveries open up for ArtOne new contexts that give him an immensely satisfying feeling and impetus for new ideas. It is striking that he prefers a cursive, cursive-like variant, especially for the pictures from the last few years. This suits the character of a tag very well, as this font can be implemented quickly and in one go.
Our Latin alphabet is more than 2000 years old and has changed again and again since it was created due to sociological and technological requirements. Around the 12th century z. For example, the Carolingian minuscule increasingly takes on a cursive character in a secular context. From this type of writing developed then in the 17./18. Century the English cursive, which shortly thereafter held the status of an artistic script in the English circles. This font was used for both private and business correspondence. Its advantage and decisive innovation lay in the speed and clarity with which it could be written. Furthermore, for the first time in history, English cursive had all the letters of a word connected, making it extremely suitable for practical use. Because of this and through British trade relations, it was widespread around the world until the middle of the 18th century. Since the 1950s, interest in calligraphy has grown in many cultures and over the past 20 years it has become an art form in its own right.
In tagging as well as in calligraphy, the writing tool has a major impact on the appearance of a letter. Characteristics such as angular or pointed, soft, rigid or elastic influence the rhythm and speed of writing. Everyone develops their own preferences. The tags at ArtOnes pictures are usually executed with a greater inclination of the letters and extended ascenders and descenders, and sprayed with a needle cap, which allows for an extremely precise and thin painting style. Incoming leads ArtOne Drips fill many of his tags, often ending in long lines and a common feature in the art of style writing.
Just as important in calligraphy as the shape of the letters is the way words are arranged on a page and the effect of the structure that results. at ArtOne In the works of recent years, this appears, similar to Jackson Pollock, like a space that seems to have no beginning and no end, no center and no clearly recognizable perspective. The structures present themselves as an excerpt from an infinite continuum. The signatures and strokes meander across the entire surface of the picture like a dance-like line configuration. In some places they combine to form entanglements. Everything stays on the canvas, nothing “falls” out of the borders of the picture and spills onto the walls. There ArtOne the colors are applied to the substrate in several layers, giving the surfaces a tactile strength that can be experienced, and as a result optical depth.
Painted in the early years ArtOne very clean and accurate. Drips were a thorn in his side. Later he also began to mask off, but this technique only satisfied him for a while because at some point he could no longer identify with it. A little frustrated and instinctively, a canvas was created on which he kept writing from left to right, "ArtOne, ArtOne, ArtOnewrote. In addition, he let the flowing paint run its course and the first drips emerged in his works, which over time became more and more important for the design of the pictures. This one picture had a great influence on his further work. Today the images stand out ArtOne through a balanced mix of coincidence and purposefully used colours, materials and various techniques. at Aerosol HandStyles In addition to the use of the spray can, the use of brushes, spatulas, paint rollers and construction foam can also be found.
There are new effects and material mixtures, e.g. B. if ArtOne through his other job he got hold of a remnant of high-quality Chinese silk wallpaper, which he could use to create a new work. This is how the picture shows us Colorful Aerosol Handstyles On Chinese Silk Wallpaper (in the middle) an interesting and fascinating mixture of high-quality background material and the rather cheap paint from the spray can.
ArtOne proves with his exhibition Aerosol HandStyles his skills as a writer and artist. His tags and pieces show an excellent flow of the letters, a consistent cohesion of the words and a balanced coherence in the proportions. Through the pictures of ArtOne moves the art of type design away from its image as a rather closed discipline that stands alone, thereby proving that it is not a static phenomenon, but rather an applied art of society that can change again and again and thus remains topical.
