8057art is a gateway to experiment with abstract where everything is a concept of nothing…where it is possible for two fusing minds to be free enough to question and challenge that which for most common minds is considered unacceptable or a mistake….and that’s the question: 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, leading to a new dimension of colours, shapes, gestures, forms and feelings, is opened up allowing them to push through a peaceful rhythm which calms their hearts and frees their souls. There is only one rule to be accepted here: Follow your own mind!!!
“…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 to show each other how our mental movies are going on, using everything around within grabbing distance – acrylic paints, markers, sprays, charcoal, pen and literally anything else.”
