PODCAST No.23 Oso, Watercolor & Crowdfunding I Lujon Cordaro at Urban Art Kids

Podcast Oso Watercolor Crowdfunding Lujon Cordaro

In the current English podcast, the Argentinian artist Luján Cordaro presents her latest book project “Oso”.
In the spring, Lu returned to Berlin shortly before the lockdown after a 9-month sabbatical and recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on the Platform Kickstarter to fund the book project.
The book is about a little bear who comes to a new place and tries to adapt and make new friends, among other things. This also reflects the story of Luján, who moved from Argentina to Germany several years ago.
In conversation, Lu tells us what little “Oso” is experiencing and how to create your own home through new friends.
In addition, Lu supports artists from Latin America who are new to Berlin with a regular meeting (currently only online). She also regularly teaches watercolour courses for children and adults at Urban Art Kids.

Have fun to listen to! And of course as always, if you like it please rate us, write comments and share our podcast!

Erkan Dörtoluk Digital Photography as Art

PODCAST No.22 Digital Photography as Art I Erkan Dörtoluk at Urban Art Kids

After the summer break we welcome you back to the Urban Art Kids Podcast. In the current podcast we talk to Erkan Dörtoluk, who lives and works as a freelance photographer, social media producer and writer in Düsseldorf.

Erkan is best known for his Twitter account “Rheinbahn intimate“. There he posts weekly scraps of conversations, which he listens to on public transport. In 2016, a book was published by Piper Verlag.
During an exhibition by French photographer Guy Bourdin at the NRW Forum in 2005, he discovered his passion for photography. After a short time, he was approached by numerous customers from the automotive industry, the publishing house and also by the Kunstsammlung NRW whether they were allowed to use his photos. In 2007, Erkan completed his training as one of the first IHK certified “social media managers” in Germany. From the very beginning, he accompanied digital photography and its preparation on social media. In our conversation, he reveals to us, among other things, what makes a good picture for him.

On September 5, Erkan will be a guest of Urban Art Kids. In the basic course of photography with his smartphone, he will explain image composition and image editing to children from the age of 10. We are very excited!

Have fun to listen to! And of course as always, if you like it please rate us, write comments and share our podcast!

aqua poster ciao coyote

Exhibition Ciao Coyote 8 Feb - 30 May 2020

Exhibition Ciao Coyote

from 8 February to 30 May 2020

Until the end of May we show the beautiful watercolor posters by Ciao Coyote. The colourful artworks were inspired by ancient figurative cave painters from the Lascaux and Chauvet caves. Whether penguins at the South Pole, yelling wolves in the forest or zebras in the savannah for every small and large animal fan, there is something there. The posters can also be combined wonderfully.

What is Ciao Coyote?

The label Ciao Coyote was founded in Berlin in 2017 by the renowned artist and painter Alisa Margolis. The concept for the label began when Alisa was pregnant. By this time, she was already trying to tell her child stories about the world. As a painter, her language is visual. This aroused an interest in the universal practice of visual storytelling in Alisa. This began with the ancient figurative cave painters of Lascaux and Chauvet. In addition, the question arising was how working artists could use the power of art and creative expression. How can we further promote and open the limitlessness of childhood, rather than closing it? How can a meaningful, sustainable dialogue with images be created that is lasting and lifelong?

She makes art prints to promote visual education. She also wants to strengthen the child’s natural curiosity by providing a canvas for the boundless play of fantasy.

More about the artist

The exhibition runs until 31 March 2020. We look forward to your visit to the Urban Art Kids Gallery every Wednesday to Friday from 14:00 to 18:00 and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

By the way, we have weekly workshops for children from 5 years of age. In addition, we offer a creative birthday program such as graffiti workshops, comic drawing, etc.

Who are the tree heroes?

When it is fully grown, this oxygen is sufficient for the equivalent of 15 people!
It protects the climate by processing CO2 which is proven to be harmful to the environment.
But not only that, he donates 6,700 animal species in Germany alone to protection and food. Of course, even Menschen.Im summer, up to 500L of water per day evaporates through a full-grown tree hero. This corresponds to a cooling capacity of 10 to 15 air conditioners.
But it can also protect you from rain or prying eyes with its beautiful canopy.
If you meet several tree heroes at once (also called forest), you can enjoy a wonderful walk. This is good for your mind.
But tree hero, is not equal to tree hero. They have different symbolic strengths! Come and look at them.
