“Good art work depends on how honestly and purely it is made”, Takashi Murakami once said on TV. This statement impressed young Japanese artist Yoh Nagao, whose works will be featured in his first solo show in Europe. The question how honestly his collage-based works are made is left open. What is certain is that these images, including a fur-wearing Bic Mac, humorously reflect the current zeitgeist.

Tim Dinter, born in 1971, is both fascinated and suspicious of the precipitation with which the former east areas of Berlin are being reconstructed. Having moved to Berlin to study at the Kunsthochschule Weissensee, his first apartment was situated on the border between Wedding and Mitte (areas previously split by the wall) at which point he felt he had been transferred into a melancholy Wim Wenders film. Dinter’s works accordingly reflect a similar atmosphere to Wenders’ moving pictures and photographs.

In times where everything can be art, it is refreshing to come across extraordinary skill. Young Chilean artist Diego Lorenzini combines realistic drawings of almost photographic quality with casual sketches and cartoons. He uses everyday materials like pencil, biro and notebook, creating an immediacy that, combined with his pensive humour, strikes as a fresh approach to an established medium.
