Gursky is a German photographer known for the highly textured feel of his enormous photographs often using a high point of view.Gursky received a strong influence from his teachers, Hilla and Bernd Becher, who are known for their distinctive method of systematically cataloging industrial machinery. This method is similarly found in Gursky's methodical approach to his photography.

Born into a working class family, Richard Hamilton grew up in the Pimlico area of London. Having left school with no formal qualifications Hamilton got work as an apprentice working at an electrical components firm. Here he discovered an ability for draughtsmanship and began to do painting at evening classes at St Martin's School of Art which eventually led to his entry into the Royal Academy Schools. After spending the war working as a technical draftsman he re-enrolled at the Royal Academy Schools but was later expelled on grounds of "not profiting from the instruction", loss of his student status forcing Hamilton to carry out National Service. After two years at the Slade School of Art Richard Hamilton began exhibiting at the ICA where he also produced posters and leaflets and teaching at the Central School of Art and Design.

d0079151_2119424.jpgEdited by Rochelle Steiner. Essays by Matthias Connor, Matthew Higgs, Sarah McCrory, Tim Nash, Scott Portnoy and Ian Svenonius.

Bells and whistles beware, there's a new noisemaker in town: Oliver Payne and Nick Relph's new book--which is jacketed in the durable, stain-resistant patterned fabric of London Underground seat upholstery--rings like a cell phone when it is opened. In this fuzzy tome, published on the occasion of the artists' exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery, London, Payne and Relph offer the first print transcripts of their 2004 films Driftwood, Gentlemen and Comma, Pregnant Pause, as well as their notes on 2005's Sonic the Warhol, which they call their most successful work because "The last album is always the best album." Their own writing is intermixed with pieces from a whole crowd of authors addressing topics that have inspired them and their work, including Matthias Connor on Scottish glam-rock; Tim Nash on riding the bus in London; and Ian Svenonius on the political history of drinking. An unconventional interview conducted by coordinating questions for the artists from 20 different individuals also appears, along with essays by Scott Portnoy and Rochelle Steiner, the Chief Curator at the Serpentine Gallery.

Gregory Crewdson

d0079151_22192230.jpg
Gregory Crewdson
Artist
born 1962 America


Gregory Crewdson is a leading practitioner in the use of constructed models and staged events in photographic art, which blurs the distinction between reality and fiction. Focusing frequently on the American suburban landscape, his carefully composed and dramatically lit photographs present strangely disquieting views of everyday life that one critic has described as being like a “demented Norman Rockwell.”

Crewdson’s influences include his father who was a psychoanalyst, the classic cinematic devices used in science fiction/horror films, the straightforward realities of documentary photography, and the work of such contemporary photographers as Diane Arbus, William Eggleston, and Cindy Sherman.

Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol
Artist
born 1928 Pittsburg, Pennsylvania

website :Warhol Museum


Andy Warhol was born Andrew Warhola in Pennsylvania in 1928. In 1945 he entered the Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University) where he majored in pictorial design. Upon graduation, Warhol moved to New York where he found steady work as a commercial artist. He worked as an illustrator for several magazines including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar.


d0079151_0571832.gifThroughout the 1950s, Warhol enjoyed a successful career as a commercial artist, winning several commendations from the Art Director's Club and the American Institute of Graphic Arts. In these early years, he shortened his name to "Warhol." In 1952, the artist had his first individual show at the Hugo Gallery, exhibiting Fifteen Drawings Based on the Writings of Truman Capote. His work was exhibited in several other venues during the 1950s, including his first group show at The Museum of Modern Art in 1956.
The 1960s was an extremely prolific decade for Warhol. Appropriating images from popular culture, Warhol created many paintings that remain icons of 20th-century art, such as the Campbell's Soup Cans, Disasters and Marilyns. In addition to painting, Warhol made several 16mm films which have become underground classics such as Chelsea Girls, Empire and Blow Job. In 1968, Valerie Solanis, founder and sole member of SCUM (Society for Cutting Up Men) walked into Warhol's studio, known as the Factory, and shot the artist. The attack was nearly fatal.


Turquoise Marilyn 1962 / Andy Warhol painted several version of Marilyn Monroe, using different colors, sizes, and formats. The artist was fascinated with fame for himself, but also of those that were famous. Warhol painted many other celebrities and iconic people from history.

The fourth Bmw Art Car was created in 1977 by the Pop Art legend Andy Warhol
Warhol explained the sweeping strokes of his car, "I tried to portray speed pictorially. If a car is moving really quickly, all the lines and colors are blurred." All previous Art Car artists created their designs on 1:5 scale models, called maquettes, and had technicians reproduce their designs on the real cars. Warhol insisted on painting the real M1 himself. He is reported to have spent all of 23 minutes painting the car. He ran his fingers through the paint to leave a personal touch.When asked if he was pleased with the end result, he replied, "I love the car; it's better than the work of art itself."
d0079151_162266.jpgd0079151_182393.jpg
The car raced only once, in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1979, driven by Manfred Winkelhock (Germany) and the Frenchmen Hervé Poulain and Marcel Mignot. It placed sixth overall and second in class.

In fact, things worked out so well that within a year the trio had managed to sub-let the rest of the desk space in their studio to people they gelled with creatively, had started employing designers one by one, and were told by their accountant that – since everyone was doing so much work together – they would have to form a limited company.


d0079151_14403036.jpgThe result was Airside, an accidental company with an accidental name. “We came up with a shortlist of about 20 words, but all of them had the URL taken,” reveals Hunter, shattering the mystique. “I had The Oxford Dictionary of New Words and I went through it, starting at A,” she continues, “Do you know what Airside means? It’s when you’ve gone through passport control, before you get on the plane, you’re Airside.”

Varied backgrounds“We didn’t set out to do that,” Hunter recalls, commenting on both the company’s name and the way it’s developed. “We didn’t get into this for the business. We got into it because we wanted to do better work. The three of us, over the course of that first year, realised that we worked well together. It was interesting, because we’ve got very different backgrounds. It was a bit of an experiment, because Fred didn’t know Alex.” The common link was Hunter, who has a background in human computer interface psychology, graphic design and programming. It was as a psychology student at Edinburgh University that she first met fellow undergraduate Fred Deakin, who was studying English Literature and running interactive experiential club nights. Then, as an MA student at the RCA, Hunter met Alex Maclean who, at the time, had left architecture to work on virtual worlds.

When the three came together Hunter was freelancing as a Flash programmer, Deakin was both a graphic designer and part-time DJ and Maclean was working on 3D virtual worlds and models for architects. Despite their completely different backgrounds, they found that their work clicked because they had one key thing in common: they all thought about user-experience.

d0079151_14441735.jpgd0079151_14443057.gif

All of which leaves one question: what does the future hold for Airside? “Things are changing,” reflects Hunter. “Advertising companies are doing more online work. The first wave of the web revolution was like the Wild West: anything went. It feels like we’re in the same position now. It’s an open book again, and we’re looking forward to exploring that side of things more.” It seems that Airside is ready for take-off.

20 designers were asked to redesign 3 rooms in the Hotel Fox, located in Copenhaguen, Denmark. The designers began spraying their artistic craft all over the rooms. They designed everything from the walls to the bed sheets to the curtains. The rooms are pretty fresh, and you can even stay there. Below, we've posted pics of the rooms done by Genevieve.

Bert Teunissen

Bert Teunissen
Artist
born 1959 Ruulro,Netherland
lives in Huizen

website: www.bertteunissen.com


d0079151_244573.jpgd0079151_243179.jpg
In 1996 Bert started to make a series of photographs that were made in houses that still have the ‘old and antique available daylight’. This is a series of photographs about a certain atmosphere that Bert knew from his childhood. The work is made in Holland, France, Portugal, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Italy, Great Britain and Japan and will find its continuation around the world. Here Bert uses available light to photograph people in their kitchen, livingroom or bedroom. It is a search for a way of living that has been around for centuries and that is disappearing from society fast, due to architectual changes but also because of new regulations in the EU and other parts of the world.
The light that is being used is the same that was used by the great Dutch masters like Vermeer and Pieter de Hoogh in their paintings and the photographs of Bert have been related to the works these painters ever since.
This series was the international break-through for Bert and his first show in New York was in september 2000.
In the spring of 2007 a book about the project will be published by Aperture in New York. The book will accompany the first exhibition at Huis Marseille in Amsterdam.

Mario Testino

d0079151_1221970.jpg
Mario Testino
Photographer
born 1954 in Peru


website:www.mariotestino.com




Testino believes that art and business can be easy bedfellows. Now considered an iconic figure in fashion photography, his pictures have produced some of the defining images of an era, and have adorned the walls of art galleries. Born in Lima, Peru in 1954, Testino attended an American Catholic school in his native country. His father was in the oil business and used his teenage son's English language skills to his advantage by taking him along to translate on business trips to New York. It was in New York that Testino's passion for fashion first began, often shocking Peruvians back home with the latest hippy styles he would pick up in the Big Apple.

d0079151_1264250.jpg


Testino credits his father for steering him towards photography, encouraging his son at a young age to choose a career he would enjoy. Before settling on photography, he attended five different universities, in Peru, the United States and England. With little talent for drawing or design, Testino found he had skills in photography, which enabled him to pursue his interest in fashion.

He moved to London in his early 20's, first to study, then working as an assistant for theatre photographer John Vickers until he died. Work was hard to come by and so Testino worked as a waiter, eventually taking photos of his colleagues at the restaurant, who happened to be aspiring models, in his spare time. In the late 1970's, with no money, he called on his bank to give him a loan to buy lights.

MARIO TESTINO PORTRAITS Record number of visitors flocked to Edinburgh's Dean Gallery in summer 2003 to see the work of world famous photographer Mario Testino. In addition to the exhibition graphics, flyers, postcards and a full colour gallery guide, we coordinated graphics for promotional and marketing purposes, producing a 48 sheet ad campaign and bus side advertising.
