ANTON BUNDENKO, COLLAGE & PRINT ARTIST.

PARALLEL MAGAZINE HEARTBREAKER.

 

Anton lives in Moscow, but originally comes from Khakassia - the adobe of cold and the motherland of shamans. A few times a year he leaves Moscow to undertake a dangerous and severe job as a shot-fier and a crew captain who builds tunnels and underground railway systems in different parts of Russia, from burning South to freezing North.

 

The common idea ties him with his most outstanding and talented friends from different parts of Russia and former Soviet Union Republics, who are finding their ways in constantly absorbing the reality and converting it into a current ready-made creative media product.They share and pursue one goal - to leave behind a lot of worthwhile and not to lose the genuine meaning which they imbed in their work capturing the spirit of days, the essence of times and epochs,

which they believe is the main mission of a artist.

PARALLEL MAGAZINE JUST MEET 

VINTAGE STYLE & FAMOUS PHOTOGRAPHER,

NEIL KRUG.

 

Tell us a bit of you Neil, who are you? I am a 29 year old artist based in Los Angeles...

When did you first start working as a professional photographer? 2008 was the year I became professional meaning I was taking on assignments for the first time. I think I was 24 years old or something like that. That was an exciting time for me!

Your work seems inspired by the seventies, where did you get the inspiration? I get inspired from random things I suppose like anyone does really. In my downtime I enjoy looking at old pulp iconography, classical paintings and other boring things. Lately I've been heavily into a book I picked up titled "Japanische Plakate" which is a collection of work from various Japanese designers over the last century. It's pretty incredible.

LET'S MEET ABDUL KIRCHER,

A YOUNG BUT TALENTED PHOTOGRAPHER.

"SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND"

 

He's German and Turkish photographer, born and raised in Berlin, Germany. Acording to him, Manhattan (New-York City) is so full of amazing people and awesome opportunities:

For him, it’s perfect for any young artist.

Your work seems inspired by the eighties, where did you get the inspiration? Most of my inspiration comes from music. Shlohmo is my main influence right now. The only thing I play when photographing someone is Shlohmo. His music puts me in this odd, but good, mood that helps me create stronger images. It’s hard to explain but music is a big key to a successful shoot. It makes the photographer and subject more comfortable. But other than that I don’t have any other influences. I don’t really like looking at other photographer’s work; only leads to unconscious plagiarism.

ANNE-SOPHIE BERGER ; "FASHION IS FAST IS NOT JUST A TRUE STATEMENT, IT'S A LIVING HYBRID OF FASHION AND ART"

 

Tell us a bit of you Anna-Sophie, who are you?

I am an artist based in Vienna. I have been travelling a lot the last year after having finished my Master of the Arts in Vienna. Most recently to New-York city where my first solo show opened at JTT Gallery. My work is not limited to a specific media, I am a trained fashion designer and include the creation of garments in my practice. They therefore divergate between objects, clothes and sculptures. My work also includes performance and photography, combining all medias freely.

 

Why clothings in Art setting?

The question to me is only relevant in one sense: Why display an object that belongs to a moving body in a still setting : The answer would be that a change of context, say from body to wall/gallerie floor enables my objects to communicate different aspects. To undergo a change of context serves a thought process, it isolates things while it excludes others. This is what all fine art is busy with. The reason why I prefer the "Art Setting" to any other setting is the importance of authorship this market allows for. Both systems are ultimately driven by commercial interests, but different from a design process, as an artist I get to define my own pace and can ultimately put my ideas before practical use.

 

What's the favorite project you worked on?

That is normally the most recent one, so I would say the work I created for JTT in New-York.
