crippaXXXalmqvist

crippaXXXalmqvist was born on the 6/7-1967 in Finspáng, Sweden, by finnish parents.
He lives since 1996 in Berlin, where he organizes the “International 24hour Comic Day” for the Comicbibliothek bei Renate.
He has self-published the books “Dollmatrix” & “Schwarz Metall Wald” etc.
He’s also been published in different european underground zines, like “Mono Brutal/Mono Vision”, “Renate”(GER), “Hopital Brut/Le Dernier Cri”, “Alkom’X”, “Strategie Alimentaire”, “La commissure”(FRA), “Smittekilde”(DEN), “Zeke Bazaar”(BEL), “Milk+Wodka”(SUI), “Good Vs. Evil”(ENG), “Excessive Voyeurism” (LIT) etc.
Besides this he als have been doing the artwork for several record covers, for example to the bands Fleshies(US), Obligatorisk Tortyr(SWE) & for the label Skull Disco(ENG).
His comix/art mostly reflects those universal themes that pops up in his mind…like schizophrenia, God, $atan, life, death, suicide, apocalypse, UFO’s..& Rawk’n’Rowl!
He uses every old tired cliché of this eternal struggle between good and evil, to produce weird comix no-one will understand. Not even himself. Weeell, sometimes. Maybe..
“Strive to survive causing least suffering possible”

Chuuu

KYOTO 1973

PAINTER, VJ, MUSICIAN, DESIGNER

http://chuuu.xxxxxxxx.jp/

Chuuu was born in Kyoto Japan 1975.His base is now in Berlin.Because of his environment of childhood he had a strong awareness of freedom,creation and making things by himself. He was good in his hands since he was a child,cutting his rubber-robots into pieces and put different pieces together and making a new robot,uncoil a small motor and extend it to make a faster motor,create a small light for playing games in the dark.Since his uncle was an artist he had many chances to see paintings and printings,spontaneously,he started to draw pictures and manga by himself.While majoring manga in Kyoto Seika University (the only university that has manga major in Japan) he bought a computer, learned himself how to use applications and studied design on his own. After graduation,he worked independently by designing and painting. 2003 moved to Berlin and now he is here as an artist.

About his works

Chuuu,the theme of his works are nostalgia-ism and reconstitution.In his paintings and drawings,influenced by Lautrec,Beardsly,Saul Bass,Japanese Ukiyoe and Leonardo da Vinci’s sketches,he expresses nostalgia by using techniques such as scraping and scaling paints,use dry impasto material to make crack surface,dye 60 years old paper with tea and use flat touches and intentionally unshaded image.Adding modern elements of manga and anime on those,that is his work.Mostly the background image is blank to accentuate the line of the body or shape.He uses Acrylics,Gouache,Aquarelle,Ink,Colored pencil,Tea,Oil,Magazines and more.
In his video works with the same theme,he made an animation system by using the technique zoetrope(invented by William Horner in 1834) and stroboscope,a turntable that DJ uses and a video camera combination.” Turntable Animation” is the name of this animation system,he turns his 12 inch record shape hand-drawing,collage,printed works on a turntable.He has been performing this “

Turntable Animation”performance in many different places.Above all,the loop animation of circularized notes is a video performance that is like spinning around the musical notation that has been originated in Europe from the 17th century and John Cage and Marcel Duchamp on a DJ turntable.
