Peter Rudl says: “Art is the natural enemy of normality!” He’s right! New is better! New art is a trendsetter. From art we can interpret a lot for media & fashion. We see current trends in society, but also in the individual – the artist/designer. Artists dare new things, just like we do! Who wants to be inspired has the chance in a few days, on 27.06.2014 in Cologne.

K1 MUST HAVES #1
“Oil on canvas” by Nathalie Pirottes
Nathalie Pirottes photographs pinup girls who are sensual and extravagant at the same time. Nathalie reduces the backgrounds of her pictures to the essential. This makes her models very present in the photo. Nathalie’s speciality is her focus on the model. She becomes a lioness, a deer or gets fluffy, blue bunny mask.
#1 Nathalie Pirottes in “Die Kunstgallerie”, 50667 Cologne .
Preview event is on June 28, 2014. The exhibition is then until August 2014 and can be found at “Die Kunstgalerie”, St.-Apern-Straße 20, 50667 Cologne.
Info and contact via 0157 76657983 or via mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
K1 MUST HAVES #2
“Courtesy Galerie” by Hannes Norberts
Hannes Norbert’s third solo show is like Nathalie Pirotte’s, except Noberts doesn’t limit himself to the painting alone. The entire gallery is white. Only white. The only colour impressions come from his impressive paintings. A blue swimming pool, a diving board over water, blue. Fonts that fill entire canvases. Hannes Norberts will inspire you. His exhibition invites you to ‘see’.
Hannes Norberts in “Galerie Klaus Benden”, 50667 Cologne.
Small special here, Norbert’s personal guided tour through the gallery, on Friday at 20:00. To be found at the “Glalerie Klaus Benden”, Helenstraße 2, 50667 Cologne.
Information and contact via 0221 2806858 or via mail to email@example.com.

K1 MUST HAVES #3
“After the image” by Marina Gadonneix
Marina Gadonneix’s works are staged spaces. Yes, rooms! The reference to the fashion world is not immediately obvious, but Marina’s entire spatial designs are an absolute eye-catcher. From pure, intense colour gradients in which the boundaries of the room disappear for the visitor to monotonous shadow walls. Marina is a professional in visual effects. Born in Paris and awarded the Prix HSBC pour la Photographie in 2006. Our third HAVE TO SEE recommendation for June 27, 2014.
Marina Gadonneixs in “Gallery Kaune, Posnik, Spohr”.
You will find the vernissage until August 16th in the Gereonskloster 12, 50670 Cologne, Germany.
