Interview with Leon Keer

Dutch artist Leon Keer’s anamorphic paintings hung in the Brand Library last year for NEXUS III, and are currently on view for our inaugural exhibition Aloha, Mr.Hand. Keer comments on society, cultural issues, and the environment by creating narratives with familiar objects that force us to re-examine how we interpret the world around us. Below is our interview with Keer discussing the inspiration behind his most recent pieces with us, getting into a creative flow, and Funky Fridays.

What was the inspiration behind the body of work that will be showing at the Brand Library & Art Center?

The freedom of speech is the most important right in our constitution, the way demonstraters are being chased and hammered down in many countries is an annoyance for me. Also, I find the abuse of power a tricky issue. You see it on the street on a small scale. You see it on large scale in political decisions, both in developed and underdeveloped countries. I am not a speaker, but I feel inspired to make a visual story about the abuse of power. When a certain group of people is demonized, I denounce the situation. 

Do you have any pre-studio rituals that help you get into a creative flow?

I mostly travel by bike to the studio. Takes me half an hour in where I soak in all the energy around me. That’s what I also do when I am abroad. I scout the neighborhood to find the energy for the next work

When you were working on this body of work, what were you listening to in the background? Do you have a different soundtrack for the various stages of the creative process? 

There is a variety of music I listen to. The broadcasting station I listen to has a variety of music, games and interviews. I like this variety as I get bored very fast if I listen to too much of the same music.

One program on that radio station that I like most is ‘funky friday’ which will bring you to the smooth funky music of the early 90 ties. 

Is there an artist or piece of work that has made a significant impact on you? Has that work influenced your own artistic voice/style? 

I really love the work of Leandro Erlich. The grandness of his work and the way he is putting the spectators to another dimension of reality.I love the work of Leandro Erlich. The grandness of his work and the way he is putting the spectators to another dimension of reality are very inspiring

What piece challenged you most in this body of work, and why?

The piece Withered Bauhinia was most challenging to make. The background tells the story that many Hong Kong people took to the streets to protest against the ruling power for the sake of democracy. People are left with the choice of either staying home and keeping their opinions to themselves, or attending an unauthorized protest and risking police violence, judgment, and imprisonment. To underline this thought of oppression makes me humble towards these protesters and obliges me to approach the situation with honor and respect.

What do you think will be said about the New Contemporary Art Movement in 100 years?

An era of reflections of the people’s voice.

Interview with Kyle Bryant for upcoming exhibition ‘Out of Many, One’

Thinkspace is pleased to present ‘Out of Many, One’ from Kyle Bryant.

A graduate from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Bryant has been perfecting his special brand of what he refers to as “Present Surrealism,” an aesthetic bordering on the edge of a believable reality.

A fine artist focusing on woodcut printmaking, Bryant recently took his oeuvre into a new direction, by adding layering and dimension to his wood-carved works.

In anticipation of ‘Out of Many, One’, our interview with Bryant dives into his artistic orgin story, the symbolism of his birds, and a look into the heart of a hopeless romantic.

For those unfamiliar with your work, can you share a little about your artistic background and how you became connected with Thinkspace Projects? 

I got into art through skateboarding and graffiti. I grew up in a small town in Maine so it wasn’t long before I got caught. The cop who caught me, knew me to be a “good kid” already so he put me on this unofficial probation where I had to take art classes in high school. I’m super grateful for that because art class let me feel like I finally belonged somewhere. 

At 18 I quickly left that town and went to Mass Art in Boston where I studied printmaking and worked as a bike messenger.  After college I focused mostly on woodblock printmaking because I didn’t need equipment for that. I moved to Brooklyn for a short period, lived in a vegan straight edge warehouse that wasn’t zoned for residential and paid my rent by screenprinting posters for hardcore shows.

My story is long and all over the place, but to make it short, I’ve moved 27 times, never really felt home anywhere. I did an artist residency in Berlin, Germany where I really developed my style. Moved back to Maine where my studio was an uninsulated attic. I would sweat on my woodblocks in the summer, and wear gloves and a north face to work in the winter, but I was in the studio every day. 

At one point I met a Portuguese girl and moved to Europe with her. I did a new woodcut print inspired by Barcelona for every month that I was there.

After Barcelona I was really lost and considering where my life was headed. I moved to Rocky Mountains, took a job as a photographer so that I could fulfill my lifelong dream of snowboarding in the Rockies, and then moved to Denver. I hated living in Denver and got caught up in some stuff that wasn’t benefiting me.

Eventually my life fell apart so I bought a 1986 VW Vanagon, built a little art studio / home in it and wandered around the western states of the US. It was when I was living my van that I came up with the idea of stepping away from woodcut prints, and building 3D sculptures using woodcut principles. I created my first 3 sculptures in my van or on park benches and public picnic tables. 

I live in LA now. I had never planned on living in LA, I thought I would hate it here, but within a few days I randomly bumped into 3 artists that I admired, they invited me to hang out with them, and actually knew who I was. There was a strange feeling that this was where I needed to be, so I rented a room and started working. 

About a month into living in LA I tagged Thinkspace on an instagram post and they followed back. That was a win in my book but shortly after that I received a DM from them inviting me to participate in their Scope Miami show. I jumped up in the air, pumping my fist like Michael Jordan hitting a game winner against the Cavaliers in ‘89. I was so siked! Thinkspace had been my career goal for nearly a decade, and I was finally invited in the doors. 

The underlying message from all of this is to not give up, to keep working through all of the challenges that life throws your way. Maybe don’t sacrifice everything all the time like I did, because it’s a huge gamble, but if you want something, do what you need to do and go after it. 

What is the inspiration behind this latest body of work? 

I’ve always been obsessed with birds in places that they don’t belong. There’s something that gives me great joy about a bird flying around in a bus station or airport. One night I had a dream that I was waiting for a plane and was literally a part of the flock. That’s when I decided to do a huge amount of birds.

The project itself has two meanings. On a personal level it’s about growth and development. Like many people in this world, I’ve had my struggles. I ran from those struggles with alcohol as my running mate and eventually became a person I didn’t even recognize. Through getting sober I have learned that what’s important is me, and my mental health. The idea of using many birds to create one image is a metaphor for all of the little things that need to be in place to have a life worth living, to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

The broader meaning for this project is about finding common ground amongst each other in society. Far too often we are divided by our differences. We have all of the little subsets of society fighting with their opposing subset over the little details and they miss the big picture, that we’re all just pawns in this game and actually have very little control over anything. I believe if we put our egos aside, focus on our similarities rather than our differences, we will be able to come together as a human race to solve the problems that face us and future generations. 

Do you have any pre-studio rituals that help you tap into creative flow? 

On awakening I do a quick gratitude check and ask that my higher power direct my thinking throughout the day. As soon as I’m out of bed I drink 16 oz of water with sea salt and lemon juice to restore the minerals I lost the day before. Coffee is the obvious next step in my process, followed by reading for 1-2 hours, meditation, and 30-60 minutes of exercise. After a smoothie I’m at work for the rest of the day and into the night.

I’m a person that has always lacked discipline. Up until recently my understanding of discipline meant punishment and never reward. Through this morning ritual I have learned that discipline means better mental health, a stronger body, and an understanding of personal accountability. 

That being said, if I’m really busy that discipline goes out the window and my morning routine goes from coffee straight to work.

What is your favorite part of the creative process? What is your least favorite part of the creative process? 

My favorite part of the creative process is creating compositions, working with power tools to build the base of my sculptures and carving the wood that I’ve created it with. Carving is a super meditative process for me and it’s a skill that I have developed over 12 years of having a chisel in my hand almost every day. 

My least favorite part is probably painting. For years I worked almost exclusively in black and white, so introducing color was a huge step for me that I’m still getting adjusted to. I’m learning to love the painting process, but I still find it kind of intimidating. 

What was the most challenging piece in this body of work and why?

The most challenging part of this project is the sheer number of birds I have to carve and paint. There was no specific bird that was significantly more difficult than another but when I hit 25 birds I looked at them and thought “well, this isn’t very impressive.” That’s when I decided to add medium and large sized birds. In total there will be about 60 birds that came together to create this entire installation.

I’ve never done anything this big before. It takes a lot of discipline and a lot of follow through. 

Is there a symbolic significance to the birds and wings that are heavily featured in your work?  

Growing up I didn’t really have a safe space in my everyday life. My home life as a child was scary and violent. On the weekends that I would go to my grandparents it felt like an oasis, a peaceful place where I wouldn’t be screamed at or hit.

One of my most vivid memories from that time period would be waking up in the morning and going outside with my grandmother to feed the birds. My grandfather and I would sit by the big bay window with the bird book open. We would learn about the migratory patterns of the birds that arrived, marking down the date of any rare bird that came through for some seed. 

Most of the birds I put in my work are super common birds, sparrows, and finches, and I use them because they are the only constant of all the places I’ve lived. I’ve moved 27 times in my life because I’ve never had a feeling of home, or safety and the birds represent that.

Who are some of your creative influences? They do not have to be fine artist, but those whose work has inspired you and impacted you creatively.  

Historically, I like Tiepolo, Durer, Piranessi, Charles Scheeler, Brunilleschi and Caravaggio. 

Contemporary artists that I admire are Tristan Eaton, Alex Yanes, Pose and all of MSK, Michael Reeder, Josh Keyes, Nychos and Sainer of ETAM crew. 

My building of installations comes from Barry Mcgee, Nicola Lopez, and of course, Carlos Amorales’ butterflies. 

Inspiration that fits into the “other” category has definitely got to be rap music. Young Jeezy is always on rotation when I need to be motivated, along with Jay-Z,  50 Cent, T.I. and Nipsey Hussle.  I can always find something interesting in a Italo Calvino book, Eckhartt Tolle helps keep me spiritually grounded, and I find a lot of strength in the fellowship of AA.

It’s an unprecedented time as we’re experiencing a global pandemic. How have you been coping/ navigating life during this time?

To be honest, my life hasn’t really changed all that much. I’ve been self-quarantining since before it was suggested. My life has usually been pretty small, especially when I was still on the sauce, so I pretty much only ever worked on art and stayed in the studio. Perhaps it’s gotten easier for me because now I don’t have the constant feeling that I’m missing out on some fun or important event.

I’m hoping that can change soon though, because I’m ready to have a life outside of work. 

On Instagram you’ve shared you’re a hopeless romantic. If you’re open to sharing, what are three qualities you’d like your dream partner to possess? Or do you have a favorite love story, fiction or non-fiction? 

WHAT?! Who told you that?!! Haha, it’s definitely true.

For as long as I can remember I’ve always been in love with love. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I never thought I was deserving of it. Since I quit drinking I’ve figured out how to love myself, which is an amazing new feeling that I hope everyone gets to experience in their lives.

If I had to pick 3 qualities for my future partner…
1. That they were healed from, or at least aware of their traumas.
2. That they were funny and willing to be spontaneous because I’m a somewhat unpredictable air sign.
3. That they care about their health and exercise regularly.

I dunno, that’s a really hard question to answer. I just want to listen to country songs all day and imagine those love stories were mine to tell, so go listen to your local country station for a while. That’s what I’m looking for. 

If your work inspired a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor what would be the ingredients and the name of the pint?

As a hopeless romantic, my flavor would probably be pumpkin spice and Hershey kisses, I’d call it “FALLing In Love”.

Interview with Manuel Zamudio for upcoming exhibition ‘Sunsets In The Apocalypse’

Thinkspace is pleased to present ‘Sunsets In The Apocalypse’ from Mexico-city born and McAllen, Texas-based artist Manuel Zamuido.

As a self-taught artist, Zamudio started perfecting his technique by replicating comic books, without knowing or understanding the human figure, and the concepts of color schemes. Once Zamudio grew older he started taking an interest in the urban culture of South Texas, learning color scheme, perception, shadow and so on from local graffiti artists.

Zamudio’s new body of work has been immensely inspired by great works of cinematography, street art, and post-apocalyptic sci-fi novels. Using portraits as a snapshot of his own movie, blending reality with the surreal.

In anticipation of ‘Sunsets In The Apocalypse’, our interview with Zamudio discusses cinematography, his inspiration for the show, and how he taps into creative flow.

For those unfamiliar with your work, can you share a little about your artistic background and how you became connected with Thinkspace Projects?

Well I am a self-taught artist and I’ve been drawing since I was very young. About a decade ago I really got into graffiti and it was there that I really got into color schemes and trying to become a more technical artist. The graffiti crew I was with taught me a lot. The last few years is when I started to mix graffiti into my paintings and the color schemes I was using then, but instead of focusing on graffiti characters I decided to go with portraits, so kind of mixing two worlds together and giving it an apocalyptic vibe. I became connected to ThinkSpace through the happy place contest they held this year due to the Covid pandemic. I was very fortunate to win the contest and start working with them.

What is the inspiration behind this latest body of work?

Ever since I was a child I was very interested in the apocalypse, sci-fi, comics and those kinds of things. In the last couple of years I started getting into cinematography and trying to understand films a little bit more visually. So when I wanted to start changing the kind of work I was doing, transitioning from graffiti characters to more of a realistic body of work, I decided to use my love of film and my love of apocalyptic story telling as inspiration. Then once the pandemic hit, I feel my work took much of a darker turn as far as the apocalyptic scenery. Like the classic line goes “does art imitates life?” here, life imitates art.

Do you have any pre-studio rituals that help you tap into creative flow?

I think the two main rituals for me when trying to build a piece are going on long runs with a film score on play, that can help me visualize and feel what I want to say with the work. The other is watching movies at the end of the night and dissecting the cinematography.

What was the most challenging piece in this body of work and why?

I think the most challenging for me was “Childhood Fears” just because of the detail and its larger size. I remembered having to work four 10-12 hour days back to back, I definitely had a work hang over after that haha.

Who are some of your creative influences? They do not have to be painters, but those whose work has inspired you and impacted you creatively. 

Some of the most influential people for me the past decade or so would have to be Stanley Kubrick because his beautiful work and discipline with his craft. Another would be Terrence McKenna because his books and talks can really help you think outside the box. Last but not least is Nas because in his early work he spoke a lot about rising above terrible life situations which really helped me stay on track. In general a lot of the golden era hip hop inspires me, I guess that’s where my love for graffiti came from.

If you could sacrifice one of your five senses in exchange for psychic ability would you? And what sense would you give up?

I think I would definitely give up smell, I’d get used to it. For sure worth the psychic ability.

It’s an unprecedented time as we’re experiencing a global pandemic. How have you been coping/ navigating life during this time?

Since the quarantine and lockdowns have been happening I think it really just made me put even more time into my work, it just made me more focused especially getting ready for the show. Not too many distractions.

Do you have a party trick? i.e. A trick such as might be performed at a party for entertainment; an unusual act regarded as one’s speciality.

I don’t know if I can consider this a party trick. But I am extremely clumsy, so usually at a party I always spill a beer or drop something. I think my friends are used to it by now. Haha

Interview with Super A for upcoming exhibition ‘Apostasy’

Thinkspace is pleased to present ‘Apostasy’ the third solo presentation of works from Dutch artist Stefan Thelen, better known by his moniker Super A.

Super A, creates hyperreal murals and studio paintings that explore the world of human contradiction. Through the combination of realistic and surreal imagery, Super A is often dealing in visual metaphor and social messaging, questioning the ideologies and cultural myths we’ve become too complacent at accepting without critique. Interested in the interrogation of objectivity and its ultimate exposure as a construct, Super A combines elements of realism with the free reign of fiction to produce unexpected results.

In anticipation of ‘Apostasy’, our interview with Super A discusses the inspiration behind his “Trapped” series, his creative process, and a strategy for achieving world peace.

For those unfamiliar with your work, can you share a little about your artistic background and how you became connected with Thinkspace Projects?

Growing up as a kid I was always drawing. It helped me to process and get rid of things.

At the age of 13 my brother introduced me to painting graffiti.

I was hooked from day one.

Coming from a small village in The Netherlands where graffiti wasn’t a common thing we found this railway overpass where we’d spend our days and nights, hanging out and painting with friends.

After finishing my education as a house/sign painter I wanted to go to art school but being too young I decided to pursue an education and go in the direction of graphic design in Rotterdam (The Netherlands)

During my second year I followed an internship at Diego Terroba Studios and started working at the studio specialized in cinema painting and set design. I got introduced to all kinds of crafts like sculpting, decoration and painting while working for Warner Bros and Disney theme parks.

While I was still working for the studio I started making personal work. And slowly my personal work became more and more important so I slowly said goodbye to that fake fantasy world to totally focus on creating my own world. All the skills that I’ve learned through the years are still used till this day to translate ideas into my personal work.

One day I got invited by Thinkspace Projects to join a group show and soon after that a solo exhibition.

When going to LA I had a chat with the guy sitting next to me on the plane who asked me if it was my first time visiting LA. I told him the first time I went to LA was exactly 20 years ago when I won a drawing contest. I went there with my mom and brother and could have never thought I would travel the world because of doing what I really like.

What is the inspiration behind this latest body of work?

Before I started this series called “Trapped” one of the returning subjects that always inspires me is contradiction. Two opposites that create an interesting tension.

I wanted to show two worlds in one piece. I came up with some ideas to get it done but all too complex.

While writing down some ideas about the fake world that surrounds us I tried to literally wrap a cartoon version around the real version. And link it to daily life where people are comfortable with wearing a mask so we don’t have to show who we really are. Interesting how for example we worship cartoon characters like Mickey Mouse but when we see a real mouse we jump on our chair and start screaming.

From there the Trapped series was born. For me it came at the right moment as I was always telling one story in one painting, and then immediately move on to the next which was always pretty exhausting and I found I got a bit tired of constantly digging into all the things that somehow frustrated me to come up with new concepts

So for now it’s quite enjoyable to focus on this theme and slowly develop new ideas

Do you have any pre-studio rituals that help you tap into creative flow?

Most of the time I create my ideas and designs in the evening.

The next day I enjoy going to my studio really early in the morning when most people are still sleeping. Put my phone on flight mode, have a coffee, press play and go!!!

When starting, music is an important element. I can really enjoy moments when the right playlist for the right type of work is playing.

What is your creative process like, and was there any evolution to the process while developing this body of work?

The subject or base of the work is all pretty much figured out beforehand, but during the first phase of the painting I try to keep as much space for improvisation and happy accidents as possible. Mostly with my scenery works I try to paint impulsive and raw backgrounds to then go into details on the subject. This way I try to create contrast and put the focus on the subject.

What was the most challenging piece in this body of work and why?

Sculptures in this style are definitely a big challenge. I noticed gravity is a motherfucker.

While working on this series I made a few sculptures but always after I did one, I’d have to park other sculptural ideas and focus on paintings again because it can be pretty frustrating. It’s always challenging to combine materials.

I really like the balance between focusing on studio work and painting murals outdoors.

Who are some of your creative influences? They do not have to be painters, but those whose work has inspired you and impacted you creatively. 

It’s definitely the close friends and family around me that really inspire and motivate me. They form the base.

Next to that there are so many unbelievable artists, musicians, persons out there that influence me in a way. And I’m not talking about the social media influencer influenza.

Not sure about all that internet distraction.

Go out, take a walk in nature, and take your time to think. Wake up!

You’re casting a reality show where five pop culture icons (real or animated) are living in a house for 90 days, who would be cast and why?

Interesting question. Can’t come up with an interesting combination of five pop culture icons at the moment but it would be good to lock up five world leaders that are at war or wanna start a war and let them create world peace within 90 days.

If you were given the power to master any skill or become an expert in any subject you wanted within a 24 hour period what would you focus on?

I would become a Buddhist monk and focus on nothing for 24 hours as I sometimes go nuts, being a restless idiot.

It’s an unprecedented time as we’re experiencing a global pandemic. How have you been coping/ navigating life during this time?

Yes it’s a surreal time.

For me personally not that much changed. Of course we’re limited in a lot of things but I’m happy I can hang out with my close ones and go to my studio

For some it’s really tough which is sad. It is what it is. The positive thing about this negative time is that it can give people time to think and slow down a bit as we live in a world which is based on breaking records.

Sad that I can’t come to the opening of my show at Thinkspace because of this situation.

Hopefully it will be better soon. Let’s hope for the best.

If your work inspired a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor what would be the ingredients and the name of the pint? 

Let’s swap Ben for Tom and make it a Tom & Jerry Chase Cheesecake flavor.

Or a Vanilla Ice taste with a “Ice T” punch (literally ; ) Vanilla Ice T flavor.

Interview with Gustavo Rimada for his exhibition ‘Florescentia’

Thinkspace is pleased to present ‘Florescentia’ the debut solo show of Mexican born, California based artist Gustavo Rimada.

Characterized by graphic aesthetics, Rimada often works with bold color palettes and stylized subjects. His paintings intermingle Mexican visuals, art history and contemporary tattoo culture which become a bridge between his ancestral heritage and his current life in the United States. A dynamic dance of history, color and representation that beautifully represents the blending and celebration of two cultures becoming one.

In anticipation of ‘Florescentia’, our interview with Rimada discusses his time in the army, creative influences, and his favorite tv show/podcast combo.

What was the inspiration behind ‘Florescentia’?

In a tough year, I wanted to be inspired by the idea of blossoming, the idea that we can flourish past any negative aspect of 2020.

Do you have any pre-studio rituals that help you get into a creative flow?

Everyday before getting started I go for a drive listen to my playlist or finish a podcast grab coffee and hit the ground running when I get back to my studio.

What piece challenged you most in this body of work and why? 

The largest painting of the Jaguar was very challenging because it’s so large and I knew I wasnt gonna fill every bit of it , so finding the balance of it not looking bare or too busy was a bit challenging. It was also done at a very stressful part of 2020 and it took me about 3 weeks longer than it should have.

What do you like to play in the background while painting; music, podcasts, other?

I usually don’t listen to any music or podcast while painting. The tv is always on so I am either watching documentaries or some of my favorite series/movies. My absolute favorite show right now is Lovecraft Country and then after each episode, I listen to the 1-hour podcast breaking it down.

Is there an artist or piece of work that has made a significant impact on you? Has that work influenced your own artistic voice/style?

Early on when I first started painting, discovering Juxtapoz & High Fructose was everything! At the time I was living in Alaska and it was unreal to me what was going on back home in LA and seeing all those different works from Mark Ryden, Robert Williams and Todd Shorr was a huge push early on. But as I started diving back into painting I went back to studying Mexican artists like Frida Khalo, Diego Rivera, and my favorite Jorge Gonzales Camarena. They were key to finding myself as an artist.

What was the timeline like from finding out about the #otterthinkspacecontest to submitting your entry?

I always stay super busy, so I was working on commission work/group show paintings. When you said you were giving a small solo I pretty much dropped everything and went for it so from the moment I found out to the day I submitted the piece I worked on it nonstop.

Do you remember what you were doing before you found out you had won the content?

I think I checked my phone and refreshed it every 5 minutes from the time I woke up (lol) but at the time I found out I was on my easel working. After I found out I was running around my house with my family cheering me on! Lol.

Do you think your time in the army informed you creatively or artistically?

My time in the army, unfortunately, did neither it was a creative killer. However, I did realize I needed to do something with my life that didn’t require being in the army. So when I got out I was equipped with a drive that in my opinion is unmatched, I don’t credit the service with any of my artistic abilities but they do get a ton of credit when it comes to pushing myself past what I think are my limits and never taking no for an answer.

We are in the middle of a global pandemic, it’s an unprecedented time, and it’s a weird time – what are you doing to create a sense of normalcy for yourself?

This kinda goes back to the first question, keeping my ritual going and seeing my friends at my coffee spot is a great way for me to feel as if nothing has changed despite us being in this horrific pandemic. To be fair, I am the kind of person who just stays home all day every day so it hasn’t been that difficult for me to abide by the rules. I do feel for people ( essential workers ) during this unprecedented time, we need them more than ever and I try not to take them for granted so I tip fat when I get take out.

If your body of work inspired a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor, what would be the ingredients and name of your pint?

Awe man I am a super boring ice cream consumer lol but my favorite Ben & Jerry’s is “ Americone Dream “ so being of Mexican descent and coming to this country with a suitcase and a dream I would have to tweak that to “ Mexicone Dream ” lol the ingredients would be some banana ice cream, waffle bits, caramel syrup, some coco chocolate bits, and a little magic.
