Red wants YOU
About the artistArt curated by
Tell us about this design.
Ever wondered how super secret agencies like those dealing with paranormal research or defense recruit their agents? Well, they choose a prominent poster boy with a striking appearance (like Uncle Red here) and let subliminal messages do the rest of the job. Easy as pie.
Where are you from?
I'm from the old town Leipzig in Germany. It's old. Like, really old ... nearly 1.000 years now
Which kind of art would you like to see more often?
Street art. As much as I admire the old classics like Rembrandt and what's his name ... DaVinci ... street art confronts you with art and the meaning behind it in a much more natural context than a museum. It just hits you right where you stand, no entrance fee, no security, just you and the artwork. I like that approach.
If you had a time machine, which era would you visit first?
I would of course make a lot of cash with it ... stock market and everything. But THEN I would would like to see the world the way it was before humans started to appear and burn it to the ground. Pleistocene or some time around that era.
What goal do you most aspire towards?
Right now that is to live off my creative endeavours and to finish my graphic novel 'null-eins' (zero one). After that that I'm up for like ... anything :D
What are you reading right right now?
The question "What are you reading right now?" of course. But actually it's Graham Chapman's "Calcium Made Interesting" ... a collection of letters, essays and other rambling from the most notorious and excessive Python member.
Would you rather explore earth or outer space?
Outer space is pretty much just vast empty blackness of epic proportions. As much as I'm fascinated with space and whatever happens there, this is a purely theoretical love. I'll read up on it if anything interesting is discovered. I'd rather explore earth, mainly urban life across the globe. I love nature as a place to always go back to and breathe, but I'm very interested in urban culture.
Batman vs. Heisenberg: which would win the battle?
Heisenberg, because he stops at nothing and for him the ends always justify the means. A ruthless criminal & manipulator. Like Ben Linus without the charming manners but with a massive inferiority complex instead.
What has been your most inspiring art experience?
Actually working on my designs & my book has proven quite inspiring. You always discover new things you didn't know you could pull off by simply trying them. Seems to work for life as such as well ...
Any shout outs?
Here's to the RBC (too many names to name them all), you guys are amazing. My designs wouldn't be what they are if I hadn't all you people to ask stuff. Thanks (especially Bamboota for inviting me over there).
