May be it would be nice to see some more artworks of the
Supalife-exhibition in Berlin in detail. Here are four from above thirty colorful
collages from Adrian Wylezol. All
pieces are nearly 20 x 30 cm. „Traumzeuge“, „Ghettoblaster!“ or „Hello, who are
you“ for example are titles of his collages shown in the Supalife Kiosk until the end of September.
Working with paper cuts, the „drawing“ with scissor and cutter, leads to an ongoing interplay between line and object, inside and outside, black and white, positive and negative, light and shadow (good and evil?). Indeed a thrilling play with dualism!
Now I've finished a fine paper cut (original size 53 x 41 cm) for a forthcoming Poste Aérienne Book project. More informations soon!
Was ist eigentlich eine Graphic Novel? Bietet der Begriff vielleicht neue Möglichkeiten und Chancen um Geschichten zu erzählen und bildhaften Autorenschaften Freiraum zu geben? Werden dabei die narrativen Möglichkeiten einer Zeichnung – eines Bildes – unterschätzt? Oder ist der Begriff heute ausschließlich reines Marketingmittel?
Wissenschaftler, Zeichner (u.a. mit David von Bassewitz, Hannes Binder, Paula Bulling, Martin tom Dieck, Frank Flöthmann, Ute Helmbold, Dieter Jüdt, Judith Mall, Falk Nordmann),Verlagsvertreter und Feuilletonisten diskutieren zur Kultur des Erzählens mit Bildern vom 02.–04. Juli an der Hochschule für Bildende Künste (HBK) in Braunschweig. Das Programm zur Veranstaltung und weitere Infos findet man hier.

Die Edition Mikrokosmos ist Teil der Longlist Förderpreis Junge Buchgestaltung 2014 der Stiftung Buchkunst. Damit gehört sie zu 20 ausgewählten Arbeiten aus 171 eingesendeten Titeln. Vielen Dank an alle teilnehmenden Illustratoren für ihre starke Arbeit!
Some years ago Poste Aérienne started their first activities with the presentation of several handmade unique artist's books at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
Artist's books got their very own tradition in the history of art and bookmaking. They are actually more an artist's statement, manifestation of a personal artistic position and exploration than a regular book publication.
Now you can find various handmade books by our group members, in different forms and sizes, on our new publication site. Impressive examples of experimental and conceptual book-design.
Hello there, a little more than two weeks ago I started a daily drawing project. It is very similar to a graphic journal, lots of the images are inspired by current or past experiences, images that strike me somehow in daily life, or fictional events.
Our artist collective Poste Aérienne is now active for seven years.
At this celebration, we set up a new website with full catalogue of our print publications. It presents our main projects like the silkscreen Accordion Books or the Mikrokosmos Box, as well as all single books in varied shapes and sizes.
Artist Books coming soon!
It has been a time of rich cooperations with a lot of German and
international independent illustrators. We've had the opportunity to
work with numerous excellent bookshops and galleries in Belgium, Germany, Spain, Italy
and the States - like Ivory Press Books / Supalife Kiosk / Last Gasp.
Aérienne got to know great contemporary publishers like Media Vaca,
lovely book and zine festivals like Grafixx, and of course - which is
always a big pleasure - a lot of charming readers.
Hot off the press and now available in all book stores is a highly recommended book with hundreds of – birds. To be honest we should recite the book's complete title "Illustration – 100 Wege einen Vogel zu malen/100 ways to paint a bird". Because that leads to its real topic which is actually "Illustration".
On more than 330 pages author (and artist) Felix Scheinberger writes about our profession and passion, taking a look at art history and discussing the future possibilities of drawing and illustration.
The book is fully illustrated (only birds!) by more than 100 illustrators from all over the world. Poste Aérienne artists also take part of this fine publication.
Grafixx zine fest 2013 (Antwerp) had extended compared to last year! More lectures, expositions, zine and silkscreen ateliers, life sketch, zine shop and more… Poste Aérienne got again the opportunity to sell it's publications. Headliners for me was a lecture of Ward Zwart and exposition of Benoit Guillaume.
We had the nice idea to reprint our first (and now sold out) silkscreen poster/accordion-book "Seven Reasons Not To Travel" in a second edition – together with our current silkscreen-project "Why Are We Sleeping?". Here are some fast snapshots from the printing.
We chose new, fresh colors...
… and worked again with our favorite silkscreen-printer Olli Nerlich (Berlin, Neukoelln).
Out now is a new silkscreen accordion book by Poste Aérienne titled "Why Are We Sleeping?"
Thanks a lot to all participating Pilots of Poste Aérienne – Leen Van Hulst, Frederik Jurk, C.Pom, Adrian Wylezol, Cleo Schwinkowski, Ib Jorn, Boris Servais – and to our new Pilote d'Essai – Nadine Kolodziey.
This lovely three-color book (edited by Dieter Jüdt) is dedicated to the lunatic singer-songwriter Kevin Ayers.
I've always liked this special existential melancholy in his music, his sense for harmonic nonsense and catchy refrains, his balancing between a friendly surrealism and sometimes dark expressionism. Not to forget his distorted bass guitar playing!
Poste Aérienne is a collective of mainly German and Belgian graphic artists.
Book art is our craft to bring you authentic and innovative illustration. We produce small press and unique books that you can find in selected bookshops, at the Frankfurt Book Fair and at Feuilles d'Art Artist Book Festival in Brussels.
