The opening of our current exhibition “Abstractalizm” was a big success. It’s probably the combination of great artworks, nice and beautiful people, a lovely cocktail and some fresh tunes that visitors enjoy this night out and buy art.
We invited 7 different artists to be part of this show, all specialized in abstract art with a flavor of urban culture. Think bold colors, lines, murals and patterns. Abstract art can’t be explained precisely in words, because it effects people personal. It’s an experience. An experience u must come and see at art’otel.
After the opening we like to give you a small insight of the participating artist’s mind so we asked them a few questions about their work as an artist & include some fun facts..
WE INTRODUCE TO YOU: CHINNY BOND
Chinny Bond was born in Bogota, Colombia in 1982. and is now an Amsterdam based artist working with the collective The London Police. His recent work has shown the artist’s solo, more abstract, geometric, flat, graphic, high contrast work based on the translation of mathematical concepts into visual expressions. With his own unique created way of working he creates mind blowing pieces of art. Nowadays Chinny is also an art curator involved with various art projects in and around Amsterdam like Cafe Havelaar, Mr. Mokum, and Ambassade Gallery.
WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION?
I have been finding my inspiration in mathematics, geometry, order and chaos. Lately I have been inspired by the process itself of creating and how to detach from the standard view of drawing and painting but also taking distance from control during creating. I have been finding Inspiration in the search for freedom in the standard process of creation and the method I have been using and formed for myself during many years.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU HAD A TIME MACHINE?
If I had a time machine I would probably travel time to find the person that would actually make the best use of the time machine. Or I would see the start of the universe and see if it will ever end.
CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR DREAM PROJECT?
To build a time machine or at least make a project that allows someone to be inspired to invent time travel.
