8057art is a gateway to experiment with abstraction where everything is a concept of nothing… It is a phenomenon that establishes a link between 2 minds, liberating them to question and challenge what is sometimes consider in reality unacceptable or a mistake… But what is a mistake? Who can ever judge a mistake?
It began to come together when Daniel (an artist from São Paulo/BR, masquerading as engineer), happen to meet Friedrich (an artist from Cologne undercover as constructor)…In time their joy for creating music, drawings, photos, movies all began to fall onto a new, common platform of expression which they call 8057art…
Usually starting with a few beers from the kiosk, they ascend those four flights of stairs to Daniel’s Atelier/Music Studio/Apartment (sometimes Restaurant) and lay a canvas gently on the floor. Slowly the gateway opens up, enlightening the way to a new dimension of colors, shapes, gestures, forms and feelings, allowing them, through a peaceful rhythm, to calm their hearts and free their souls. There is only one rule to be accepted here: Follow your heart!!!
“…it’s as though we each have a movie running in our minds, with the same soundtrack, Miles Davis – Bitches Brew… A good single malt helps embody this experimental environment as we continue back and forth showing to each other how our mental movies are developing, using everything around within grabbing distance – acrylic paints, markers, sprays, charcoal, pen and literally anything else.”
For the next hours they are 8057art.
