MAR

MURALS

 

In Gonçalo MAR, the desire to go in the street and turn the walls into canvas was immense. In 1998, the adventure began and since then MAR has been developing a unique style and creating a body of work capable of being among the best, always with a strong, dynamic, current, pertinent message.

Year: Since 1998

BURRY BUERMANS: “Stampcollages”

BURRY BUERMANS
“STAMPCOLLAGES”

 

One year before Burry Buermans doing his first collage, he visited an auction with some of my friends, and for a unknown reason he found himself bidding on a immens postal stamp collection which he eventually ended up buying.

5 years later, when Burry moved the 6 banana boxes filled with stamps to Portugal he came up with the idea of starting his stamp collage series.

The concept has a very interesting result, and with an exception of a few works all works consist of two framed postal stamps where one image is cut out from the first stamp to combine it with the second stamp. All works have a specific title which explains their relation. 

The details in the cutouts are very small, and we are not talking about millimeters, but a fraction of that. 

Year: since 2014

Burry Buermans: Mural – Bang Awards

BURRY BUERMANS
Interactive and changing mural for BANG AWARDS 2020

 

Burry was asked to make an artistic installation for the short film festival BANG AWARDS with the theme “changes”.

He opted to interpret it in two different ways, literally and  figuratively. The mural, just like the world around us, is constantly changing by switching from different light sources and colours in an endless cycle without beginning neither an end. The mural could be read from left to right with on the left part the things he want to ban or avoid in his life. The central part had different interpretations of the word “changes” and the right side stands for all the things he wishes for himself and all others. May love always prevails on hate…

BURRY BUERMANS
“Retrospect suite”

 

In 2012 Burry Buermans was asked by Weedy from 40Winks to design his album cover for he’s new solo project “Retrospect Suite”.

Since Weedy exclusively works with samples from old songs and movies to create the feeling of a one man orchestra he wanted the album cover to be a analog collage to reflect the cutting and pasting. This time not with sound but with images of all the instruments used in the album.

Check the video and get delightened!
