We’re just a few days away from Moniker Art Fair and in addition to all of the exciting things planned throughout its run, this year, the fair will be kicking off with a special opening event called Collectors Day. Read on to learn more!

Moniker Art Fair is pleased to introduce Collectors Day, a unique concept designed to encourage art buying from fairs, galleries and artists alike. Taking place on opening day, May 1st, 2019 at the fair’s new NoHo location, 718 Broadway, this exploratory initiative challenges and defies the traditional VIP vernissage for art fairs. Providing more than a VIP preview, the day fosters education and accessibility to art collecting through a series of talks and Q&A’s led by collectors, gallery directors, curators, and artists. Moniker’s second New York edition will take place on May 1-5, 2019.

Collectors Day will feature tours across the expansive, multi-level fair lead by Moniker Director Tina Ziegler. Special programming for the day will include panel discussions with art world professionals on a wide range of topics that matter both to veteran and emerging collectors including: how and why to collect contemporary art, the best way to approach building a collection, and investment opportunities and elitism within the art world.

Fair Director Tina Ziegler says, “Collectors Day means real, mature discussion on subjects that matter to our collectors. What are the pros and cons of buying direct from artists? How long can it take for art to mature significantly in value? How do I even begin collecting? These are all things we can and should answer, and we can’t wait to see the effect Collectors Day has on our guests.” Collectors Day will also host talks led by accomplished collectors, gallery directors, curators and artists. Moniker’s approach to the new programming for this New York edition is the latest in a series of initiatives that Moniker has undertaken over the last 10 years to make art collecting accessible to the public.

As part of the Collectors Day program collectors will have a chance to hear short presentations from galleries and Spotlight Artists. The 2019 New York edition continues to exemplify the fair’s commitment to exhibiting the depth and breadth of urban contemporary art from across the globe. 2019 New York edition participating galleries include Vinyl on Vinyl Gallery, Philippines; Mazel Galerie, Brussels; Damien Roman Fine Art, The Hamptons; Fousion Gallery, Barcelona with Spotlight artists WK Interact, Christian Boehmer, Evoca 1, ICY & SOT who are recognized leaders in the urban and new contemporary art movement.

Partners for the Collectors Day include: Art Money, Art Law, Barnebys Auction House, Greenpoint Innovators, It’s a Small World, Juxtapoz Magazine, Norwood Club, Soho House, and Tagsmart among others.

Opening of Moniker Art Fair 2019 | 3pm

Drinks Reception and welcome to the fair | 3pm - 4pm

Fair Tour with Fair Director Tina Ziegler | 4:30pm - 5:30pm

Each person will receive headsets for the tour so they can hear the tour throughout the fair. Each exhibitor will get 5 minutes to introduce their collection to the tour. This gives collectors a guided one-on-one with each gallery and artist.

Collecting Art 101: Starting a Collection | 5:30pm

This program explores questions every new collector should ask themselves: how do you define your personal taste as a collector? What type of collector are you? How to purchase art for passion and purpose?

Collecting Art 101: Investing in Art | 6:15pm

A round table discussion on how collectors control the market, why it’s important to collect in today’s climate, and the good and bad aspects of buying art on Instagram. Guest Speakers include: Derek Gores, Professional Artist, part of the Open Studios Program; Jonathan Levine, Director of Jonathan Levine Gallery (New York); Evan Pricco Editor-in-Chief of Juxtapoz Magazine; Damien A Roman, Director of Damien Roman Fine Art Gallery, The Hamptons; Yasha Young Director and Curator of Urban Nation Museum, Berlin; Tina Ziegler, Director and Curator of Moniker Art Fair.

Christian Böhmer Interview | Moniker Art Fair

For our next preview feature from the upcoming Moniker Art Fair in New York, we’re sharing an interview with Christian Böhmer! Christian is a self-taught contemporary artist who creates large-scale murals along with drawings and paintings. He has exhibited work around the world including in Australia, Germany, The Netherlands, and Switzerland among others. Most recently, he completed a mural painting for the "one wall project" curated by the Urban Nation Museum of Urban Contemporary Art in Berlin. After learning more about his work and process, we’ll certainly be looking forward to seeing what he exhibits at the fair!

Tell us about your background. You describe having roots in the graffiti movement of the 90's so was this the type of art that first inspired you and that you first created? 

Yes, graffiti was the kind of art that influenced me most when I was a kid in the mid-nineties. I was lucky enough to live only a few kilometers from Europe’s largest legal graffiti hall of fame at that time, which was the famous "Schlachthof Wiesbaden". Once a year, there came the world’s most famous writers together to have a graffiti jam for one weekend. I was so fascinated to see what was possible to do just with a spray can, that I decided to try this on my own. As it was a legal spot to paint graffiti, there was no need to hurry or to get nervous. I think this is why I had time enough to experiment in every direction, which included painting characters, too. I found out that I had much more talent in character painting then in writing letters....

How has your work developed since then? When and why did you turn to portraits? 

The first few years I developed in painting characters and as I got better and better, I moved towards a photorealistic style. I believe the most difficult subject one can paint in photorealism is a portrait, where there are no mistakes allowed. And when you dive into this world of painting portraits, you find out that there’s a lot of stories you can tell with that kind of art.

Can you explain your reasoning behind covering various body parts of your subjects - namely their heads and faces, but also in recent work, their hands as well?

As I said, it is very interesting to tell stories within portraits. I did that for a long time, but one day you ask yourself, what will be the next challenge? What else can I add to these stories? When you think about that, the next logical step will be to transform the portrait, to paint it in an abstract way. But the abstract in my portrait painting is not the transformation of color or shape, but the paper bag. I found out that for me this is a perfect medium to use in order to transform shape, to give it a message, or to simply hide the face itself. Sometimes less is more :)

You recently completed a new mural in Berlin, congratulations! How did that project come about? How often do you create larger, public works and do you enjoy it as much as your smaller pieces? 

It was Yasha, the director of the Urban Nation Museum of urban contemporary art in Berlin, who asked me to paint this specific wall. I just began working on a new series of drawings, which plays with red colored hands, that tell all those stories that hidden faces can’t tell. This series deals with people on the edge of society, the ones nobody listens to. And the wall I painted in Berlin is located in an area where these people live. So it was the perfect match.

What will you be showing at Moniker in New York? 

I will be showing this new series of people with red hands hidden behind their paper bag mask. But you need to see it in person!

Do you have any additional exciting projects going on in 2019 and beyond that you'd like to share?

Yes, I will have a huge solo show in Mainz, Germany in September. I’m very glad to be there because that is the place where I grew up and where I had my first graffiti writing experience. I have not been back there for more than 15 years!

I will also have a group show in October at 19Karen Gallery near Brisbane in Australia, which I’m also looking forward to. I love the idea that people from all over the world can have the opportunity to see my art in person.

Moniker will be held May 1 - 5 in New York City at:
718 Broadway
NoHo, Manhattan
New York City, NYC
10003

We’re just a few short weeks away from Moniker Art Fair which will be held May 1-5, 2019 in New York City. The international fair’s 2019 exhibitors include some of the world’s most renowned urban & contemporary artists and galleries in booth exhibitions as well as solo presentations and installations. 28 exhibitors and four special projects, hailing from 13 countries around the globe, will present work in alignment with this year’s theme, Cause & Effect, which examines our shared roles and commitment to addressing the current state of political, social and ecological issues. Create! will be providing coverage of the fair, but we’re also excited to be bringing you a sneak peek at some of the artists who will be highlighted at this year’s NYC edition of Moniker. Last week we introduced you to WK Interact and this week we’re sharing the incredible work of Evoca1!

Evoca1 was born in the Dominican Republic, where he spent most of his childhood drawing on walls and playing baseball, until eventually moving to Hollywood, Florida at age 11. 

As an autodidact, he has received his art education from the compulsive study of the old masters’ works and techniques. His pieces are a personal reflection of his life experiences, as well as observations of human behaviors and social struggles.

He currently lives and works out of South Florida, where he continues to develop his craft and research of figurative painting. In recent years, this mainly happened in public spaces where he has painted large-scale murals. His interaction with the local environments has been essential in generating the concept of his work.

WK Interact Interview | Moniker Art Fair
art work WK .jpg

Create! Magazine is a proud partner of Moniker International Art Fair which will be held in May in New York City. Moniker shines a spotlight not only on young and emerging artists, but also on leaders in the urban and new contemporary art movement. For the forthcoming iteration of the fair, they will be highlighting one of NYC’s most recognized wheat pasting artist, WK Interact. Originally from France, WK Interact has been working in New York for over 20 years. Read our interview below to learn more about his work!

poster3.jpg

Tell us about your background. Were you interested in art as a child or did you come to it later in life?

Well, I started to draw when I was 8 years old as my father was a painter. I think I became passionate about art from seeing him in his studio.

What brought you to New York?

I was first in New York when I was 13 years old, but did not have a chance to visit as I had only landed there for a connecting flight to Miami. I came back at age 16 in 1982 and it ended up having an incredible impact on me. My flight arrived late at night and I only knew the address of my hotel on 82nd street near Central Park. Of course, it was the cheapest place to stay and the worst hotel at $15 per night. I spent the next three months traveling all over the state using Greyhound buses and after this, I decided to focus on creating art ‘in motion’. At the age of 18, I came up with a process of making distorted images using a Xerox copy machine which helped me find my signature style. After placing many canvases in my hometown in the south of France illegally, it was obvious to me that the best city to create that sort of interaction with my work would be New York. I ended up living in the city for many years and became a french New Yorker. I’m still living there today!

How has living there affected your work?

Living in New York for me was important to just be there and connect with the city. For my work, I feel that it becomes part of an event or a corner of the street. Even I start to blend in with my work by wearing all black clothes.

Can you explain your interest in figures and your unique techniques to create your work?

My work is based on the following concept: First illustration, then the location, then the motion interacting with the scale of the building. My real motivation is film. I decide to use the street to recreate a story and take photos with people passing by. The interaction part of my concept and process is where I came up with the name WK INTERACT.

What are some of your inspirations?

Sculptors and photographers like Calder and William Klein as well as the film industry including French Connection, Blade Runner...and so many others.

What will you be exhibiting at Moniker?

I  will have one large work and 8 posters plus a large print directly installed on a wall.

Besides showing with Moniker, do you have any other projects this year you'd like to share?

Plenty of projects, but I can’t mention anything yet :)

Sculpture Made Entirely out of Paint by Ignacio Muv
_MG_1502-Edit.jpg

This year, we had the pleasure of meeting artist Ignacio Muv at Scope Miami Beach and fell in love with his incredible sculptures created entirely out of paint! They are absolutely stunning in person. Here is what the artist has to say about his work and process:

My art is born from a process of transformation of the paint. I am interested in the constant change and movement of the human condition, and I materialize it through my art. I create skins of paintings, which I wait till they dry, then I fold them and give them life. I do not paint over canvas, it all paint. The fundament of my work its not material but spiritual. 

It is an analogy to the human body, where metaphorically the painting is the skin the beater is the skeleton and the work the spirit.
— Ignacio Muv

About The Artist

Ignacio Muv addresses the potential of painting as a material, his works present it from its tactile, sensory and virtual dimension; generating a direct dialogue between the painting, the frame and the canvas, suppressing the formal obligations in that relationship.

Muv elaborates his creations from pigments and emulsions. He uses materials to "cook" his painting through recipes whose results are, at times, unpredictable and subject to time and circumstances, always driven by an intention of a spiritual and mediative nature that articulates his process.

His practice is the extension of constant experimentation, pushing the limits of painting. The pigment is transformed into dust, powder becomes paint and the paint manifests as skin. The artist plays with the states of transformation of matter, where the understanding of art is born from its core, as an infinite matter in constant movement. Everything combines to form a work of art made of an instant and a time.

There is a strong element of paradox and balance in the work of Ignatius, because something so intrinsically material, so tangible and palpable, acquires a substantial spiritual and spatial dimension in unison. A very physical and at the same time very contemplative work, of frozen and organic movements full of silence and sound.

The constant ambition of the artist to inhabit the mystery of the meaning of art through material surfaces is facilitated by his practice, where he shows an ability to look beyond the painting, as if we could take off our own skin and see what is below . It is a vision of the state of constant transformation of the human condition and, simultaneously, a record of the now.

Pulse & Scope Recap 2018
Screen Shot 2018-12-14 at 5.44.12 PM.png

We were so thrilled to be able to have the chance to see more fairs than usual this year. While we loved the diversity of artists represented at each of the shows that we visited, we have to give a special shoutout to Pulse and Scope for having consistent programs of top quality galleries and artists. As we walked along the aisles at both fairs, we couldn’t help but be pulled in every direction trying to take in as much of it as possible. We certainly tried to - so here are a few of our favorites!

This is our second year being a proud media partner of Art Miami Fairs. As if visiting sunny Miami is not inspiring enough, we got to explore thousands of artworks from across the globe. There were incredible, innovative pieces that stuck out to us from every art career level, but we had to narrow it down to a select few.

Here are our picks from Art Miami, Context and Aqua fairs from the 2018 edition.

Art Miami Exhibitor Highlight: Landau Contemporary at Galerie Dominion

www.galeriedominion.ca

December 4 –9, 2018

In its 29th edition, Art Miami maintains a preeminent position in America's modern and contemporary art fair market and is globally recognized as a primary destination for the acquisition of the most important works from the 20th and 21st centuries.


Interview with Tim Dunn and Sara Landau

Briefly tell us about your gallery and what type of art you specialize in.

Landau Contemporary acquired the Dominion Gallery, Canada's oldest and most prestigious private art establishment in October 2005. The gallery offers a stunning showcase for modern masters alongside an exciting ensemble of contemporary international artists including Yves Zurstrassen, Christoph Kiefhaber, Kwang-Young Chun and Tony Scherman. Landau Contemporary is also the exclusive North American dealer for the Austrian master, architect and artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser.

"Landau Fine Art was already well established as one of the world's leading galleries specializing in early 20th century international art," explains Canadian art dealer Robert Landau. "Dominion represented a unique opportunity to offer the works of living artists under the umbrella of their more famous 20th century predecessors.”

The partnership between Landau Contemporary at Galerie Dominion and Landau Fine Art guarantees a wealth of choice for art lovers and collectors to experience, in an extensive exhibition space exceeding 20,000 square feet in a stunning Victorian landmark on Sherbrooke Street West.

What can visitors expect from your booth this year and what specific works should they pay attention to?

history will come alive at Landau Contemporary at Art Miami, where we will be featuring an exceptional collection of paintings and sculptures from the Estate of Antoni Clavé, which will be presented alongside Britain’s most celebrated modern sculptor, Henry Moore, among others. Both of these extraordinary exhibitions will include works that span over 40 years of the Artist’s careers. These are only two of the highlights that will be on exhibit exclusively at Art Miami this December, where Landau Contemporary will feature over 100 artworks in 2,000 square feet of exhibition space.

What tips would you share with new art collectors or fair visitors?

We encourage collectors to take the time to really look and interact with the works on display. Great artworks repay the attention they are given, and the more you look the more you have an opportunity to see. Experiencing and engaging with art is a slow burning process, so don’t try to absorb everything in one visit.

December 4 –9, 2018

In its 29th edition, Art Miami maintains a preeminent position in America's modern and contemporary art fair market and is globally recognized as a primary destination for the acquisition of the most important works from the 20th and 21st centuries.


Interview With Wilhelm J. Grusdat

Briefly tell us about your gallery and what type of art you specialize in.

Art is not only our business, but it is also our passion. Specifically, we see our role as the mediator between collectors and artists. A very special vision is necessary to recognize a work of art as a potential masterpiece and as a valid manifestation of form and ideas.

Only when all of these come together, can an artwork truly radiate that very special aura to which a viewer immediately feels drawn. An exceptional work of art has much more to offer than that which meets the eye. It is this quality to which the Galerie Terminus aspires.

What can visitors expect from your booth this year and what specific works should they pay attention to?

At this year’s Art Miami we present the highlights of our current program and exciting new additions consisting of famous artists as well as young talents. We bring these two perspectives into context with each other at the fair, both as contrast and as correspondents.

On the one side, we show big names and great American Pop-Artists such as John Chamberlain, Roy Lichtenstein, Mel Ramos, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, and Tom Wesselmann.

On the other side, we bring young contemporary artists into focus with the Germans Christian Awe, Jan Davidoff, and Tatjana Tartakovska.

We are very proud to also be able to include exciting new works from our current program by Georg Baselitz, Sigmar Polke Gerhard Richter, and Günther Uecker. To round things up, it is our very special pleasure to exclusively present a number of early works by Georg Baselitz as well as an exquisitely typical work by Sigmar Polke.

What tips would you share with new art collectors or fair visitors?

Our presentation boils down to the bottom line which we wish to present to our fair visitors and all new art collectors: Always be on the lookout for works by artists with an international standing who are able to touch your heart and mind.

Booth AM117

December 4 –9, 2018

In its 29th edition, Art Miami maintains a preeminent position in America's modern and contemporary art fair market and is globally recognized as a primary destination for the acquisition of the most important works from the 20th and 21st centuries.


Interview with Katarina Siltavuori

Briefly tell us about your gallery and what type of art you specialize in.

Galerie Forsblom, founded by Kaj Forsblom in 1977, holds a unique position on the Nordic art scene as one of the largest and most international contemporary art galleries by bringing international established artists to its exhibition spaces in Helsinki and Stockholm. While the exhibition programs consist of a wide range of media within the visual arts, Galerie Forsblom is highly profiled as presenting excellence in contemporary painting as well as sculpture.

What can visitors expect from your booth this year and what specific works should they pay attention to?

Galerie Forsblom showcases both established American artists, such as Peter Halley, Jacob Hashimoto, and Keith Sonnier and young Finnish rising stars, Toni R. Toivonen and Reima Nevalainen.

Our booth presents a coherent synergy between playfulness and harmony – the booth is curated with a joyful spirit as Peter Halley’s bright-colored, neo-geometric conceptualist works juxtapose Jason Martin’s large-scale monochromatic sculptural paintings which consist of thick surfaces of oil or acrylic gel.

The booth prevails a lingering harmonic atmosphere with Jacob Hashimoto’s works, which combine Japanese handicraft tradition with Anglo-American minimalism, Stephan Balkenhol’s raw and spontaneous wood sculptures, and Bernar Venet’s dynamic steel sculptures and arches, playing with gravity and three-dimensionality.

What tips would you share with new art collectors or fair visitors?

Be curious and ambitious. Let passion be your guide and trust your instincts. Buying art can be fun – and don’t be afraid to go big!

Art on Paper in Brussels

We were so excited to be given the opportunity to visit Art on Paper [in collaboration with BOZAR] a small, international drawing-focused art fair in Brussels last week. Besides the fact that it highlights a specific medium - one which can be defined broadly due to its potential to be used in a seemingly infinite amount of ways - the fair is unique in that each gallery's booth presents one solo exhibition rather than a group show of their roster of artists. Below you'll find a few of our favorites!

From the Art on Paper press release:

The line, to infinity. As everyone knows, drawing is first and foremost a line, potentially infinite. This line evolves and expands over time. In 2018, Art on Paper grows and doubles in size. Since its inception, Art on Paper has been emphasizing the variety and diversity of contemporary approaches to drawing through artist solo shows. This is the main principle of the show, it is THE specificity renewed every year: one booth, one gallery, one artist. Thus, for 5 days, 50 Belgian and international galleries are investing BOZAR exhibition spaces to offer, in the heart of Brussels, 50 SOLO SHOWS from established and emerging artists: the best of contemporary drawing. Building on the success of its latest editions, Art on Paper is setting itself up this year in the prestigious "Ravenstein Circuit", always in collaboration with BOZAR, and has new parallel projects to reflect the most current creation and the most experimental practices in terms of drawing.
