    Photo of mural by Adele Renault at Sir Albert by Delphine Chevalier.

    At Amsterdam's Sir Albert, grey herons could be considered the neighborhood’s mascot.

We commissioned local artist Adele Renault to celebrate our neighborhood with this bold and beautiful mural on the building's facade.

    Drowning all the way back home

    Jonathan Niclaus is a Berlin-based illustrator and art director. You'll find this work in Berlin's Max Brown Ku'damm. His main focus lies in colour. He draws simple shapes, instilling meaning from surrounding events into them. As emotions are not tangible, and not a shape you can easily describe, these often take an abstract form. Abstract and simplified shapes leave space for mistakes, and the resulting coincidences lead to sparks of spontaneity. The artist finds inspiration from the ocean's depths, where we are "confronted with our ancient past and our subsconscious dreams."

  • julia-faber-idit-orni.png
    Julia Faber, Method 4/5, 2012, oil on canvas, 170 x 140 cm. Curated by Idit Orni.

    From a graduation painting to a special five-colour variation at Vienna's Max Brown 7th District. In this series, artist Julia Faber researched sexuality in the 19th century. Back then, masturbation was thought to cause illnesses and madness, therefore many techniques and methods were invented in order to stop teenagers from…doing the deed. One of the methods, as addressed in this work, was to make boys wear skirts, so the cool breeze from below would cool them off so to speak. Also, the consumption of cold food was supposed to lower the libido, hence the boy eats ice cream. The artist lives and works in Vienna.

He uses other old materials, like damaged brushes, blunt Stanley knives or other older and sometimes broken tools, because working with these tools and materials always results in something surprising.

  • Nick-Oberthaler-768x226.jpg
    Nick Oberthaler, Untitled (EX/Proposal/After G.G), 2019. Edition of 60+ 10 AP Etching. 5 Variation of grey. Image size: 62 x 37 cm, paper size: 78 x 53 cm.

    This work is on display at Vienna's Max Brown 7th District and created by Vienna artist Nick Oberthaler. Referring to Oberthaler’s similar large-scale painting titled "EX", this work was inspired by an exhibition poster by the American conceptual artist Gaylen Gerber. Oberthaler saw the folded poster of Gerber’s show, and only the first two letters of the word ‘exhibition’ were visible, and he incorporated those letters into his work. The truncated typographic positioning of the EX also symbolises the translation from Latin: ”out of”. More than a visual experience, it may also trigger your creativity. How many words starting with ‘ex’ do you know?

"Hunter" combines kitsch iconography with sculptural art and functionality, thus proving once more that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
