RAW Art Fair Rotterdam 2014

Yesterday I’ve been to the RAW Art Fair in the Cruise Terminal in Rotterdam. Unlike last year I decided to put my favourites directly on the blog, because afterwards it was too much of a search to connect the right artist to the right work. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to remember or find all the names this time, but that should not spoil the fun of radomly sharing these great works with you:

ONDERZEEBOOTLOODS 2013

Today I went to Boijmans’ Onderzeebootloods, XXXL Painting.
The submarine wharf is situated at Heijplaat (15 minutes by boat from Rotterdam) and contains XXXL work by artists Jim Shaw (USA), Chris Martin (USA) and Klaas Kloosterboer (NL). The wharf itself is very nice to walk through, because it still looks the same (I think) as it did from the establishment in 1937 until the 1980s when it went bankrubt.

Jim Shaw
Jim Shaw (1952), my favorite artist of the day. He uses old theater backdrops for his art work. You can recognize a lot of Surrealism and Pop Art influence.

Klaas KloosterboerKlaas Kloosterboer (1959). He makes a lot of abstract paintings which he constructs and deconstructs (making holes in it, fumble it, etc. and sometimes creates bigger than life size suits from it. (cool!)
