Art Collaboration with Skategirls from Colombia
I had the luck this week to meet the Skategirls from Colombia while they were in Munich giving art and skate classes in schools. We met during a print workshop given by the Colombian artist Jose Antonio Suarez Londoño who is currently exhibiting at Villa Stuck in Munich. I invited them to my studio to experience making art with the Risograph printer. We spent five hours cutting, pasting. drawing and printing until we completed four new printed editions. Daniela is a photographer and based her print on one of her images of a zebra, Susanne and Carolina combined a drawing from their sketchbooks with new drawings inspired by Munich. The final work we made was a collaborative image to commemorate the Skategirls visit to Munich. Text is overlaid over one of my sketches of the Angel of Peace (Friedensengel) and one of Daniela’s photographs of Medellins most representative skyscaper, Coltejer.
