Antistrot: Netherlands Artists

Paul Borchers, David Elshout, Silas Scheltterer, John Kleinjan

These guys do a variety of artistic projects together including performance, robotics, digitizing, paintings, drawings, video documentary. Currently, David is finishing a book which talks about the concepts behind their work.

Sara Tecchia gallery from New York brought several of these guys' paintings to Aqua Wynwood this week. The paintings are more detailed versions of the murals.

I love the characters they create (and you never use the same ones twice.) While I was talking with Sara about their work, she pointed out that each painting can be hung from any side, essentially creating four different paintings in one. Pretty rad.
