J.BLUEMLEIN – PixelPlastik Stuttgart / Berlin Germany
Inspired from his passion for Skateboarding and the first contact with the computer age and Arcade games like Pong, Tetris or Green Berret, the idea of turning roughly incremental icons into sculptures was born later in his life. Having studied a career as Digital Artist at the Film-Academy Ludwigsburg also made a huge impact on the concept of creating the pixel artworks.
“Since you are always working in the highest zoom rate enlargements and literally just see pixels and no more real images, the thought of recreating this sight in haptic art pieces seemed obvious.” The passion for airbrushing and model making were certainly also incorporated in the whole process and formed the technical basis for the art pieces. Until now the Pixel Plastics could be seen in various exhibitions throughout germany and each of them is one of a kind regarding color combination and distribution.
In 2002 he was among the founders of the artist group FauxAmi which later in 2003 set the cornerstone for the Skateboard Museum Stuttgart with the first “Skateboard Fever” Exhibition. Today he curates the Skateboard Museum Stuttgart and the according exhibitions with their company FauxAmi Exhibitions. He lives and works in Berlin.
