Karl Busani NFT Künstler

Busani, Karl 

(*1995) lives and works in Cologne. He studied Integrated Design at the Cologne International School of Design (KISD) and has been working in the field of generative art for several years now.

With his art, Busani moves at the interface between physical space and virtual worlds, where he examines the effects of generative design in his own codes. His interdisciplinary practice includes experimenting with algorithms in different languages ​​and the unpredictability of visual experience. The output from this can be seen in interactive installations, real-time animations and generative works of art.

For HORIZONS he presented a video work in which the flow never ends. It is generated frame by frame and remains ephemeral. The counterpoint to this are plotter drawings, which in turn seem to be snapshots from a field of infinite possibilities. Generated from pure computer code, the lines are put on paper by a robot that guides the pen. The graphic element is automated and made potentially reproducible, but each drawing remains unique due to the production conditions and external influences through the artistic decision.

Maya Funke NFT Künstlerin

Funke, Maya: 

(*1996) lives and works in Cologne. Her artistic practice arises in synergy with her electronic environment and is formed in installation, video, code, performance and text. Maja Funke completed her Bachelor of Arts in Intermedia at the University of Cologne in 2019 and has since been studying media arts at the Cologne Academy of Media Arts.

A scribble is the test movement of a tool, the “hello world” of the pencil, what is created before the actual idea is captured and the starting position from which a narrative can be imagined. She is co-curator of the Performance Garden. Most recently, her works were shown in public and virtual spaces, in the Trinitatis Church (Cologne), in the IKOB Museum for Contemporary Art (Eupen), as a solo exhibition in STROMA (Cologne) and in the Kunstmuseum Bonn.

Keitel, Carola: 

(*1983 in Bad Friedrichshall) lives and works in Cologne. She studied fine art and philosophy at the Kunsthochschule and University of Kassel, and was a master student with Urs Lüthi in the area of ​​mixed media/sculpture and an artistic assistant with Norbert Radermacher in the area of ​​participatory work/public sculpture. She showed her works in exhibitions at Bruch&Dallas, Cologne (2011), the Deutsche Bundesbank, Frankfurt (2013), the Fuhrwerkswaage Cologne (2014), the Kunstforum der TU Darmstadt (2016) and in the Kunstbasis Ebertplatz, Cologne ( 2023).

For Carola Keitel, visual art, people, public space and their relationship and relationships with each other are closely connected. At the center of her artistic work are, among other things, sculptures that represent true-to-original, solidly constructed metal railings that are placed in the exhibition space or used in public spaces to absurdly border bushes or trees or are attached as fictitious stair railings or wall brackets. These objects, which we often only perceive subliminally in everyday life, should be brought into our consciousness more clearly, also in terms of their meaning and purpose.

Benedikt Kremer, NFT Künstler aus Köln

Kremer, Benedikt 

(*1994 in Cologne) grew up in a family characterized by crafts and art. However, after studying mechanical engineering, he decided to give his creativity more space and now works in the family business and on artistic projects.

The Gameboy is a timeless example of how technology and creativity can combine to inspire our imagination. To this day, which is characterized by highly developed technologies and complex video games, the Game Boy remains a symbol of simple, nostalgic joy and a way to escape from everyday life. This is exactly where Benedikt Kremer comes in with his work Game Boy King (2023).

Measuring 1.80 m tall, the sculpture is made of lime-based plaster with marble powder, applied in a “broken stone” style. The display is gold-plated behind the glass and painted with spray paint. The removable or insertable game, with an interpretation of the “Pokémon Green Edition”, is designed with water-based paint and includes real grass. In a sentimental, nostalgic, but also humorous way, Kremer creates a sculpture that can be seen as both a reminder of his youth and a symbol of his current refuges – nature and virtual realities. Two ways to escape everyday life and explore new worlds and spaces. Through the additional transfer into the digital space and the creation of an associated NFT, an additional bridge is built that transfers the tradition and technology of the Gameboy into today’s digitalized world.

Claudia Kremer, NFT Künstlerin aus Köln

Kremer, Claudia 

(*1967) comes from a family of artists and has been working as a freelance artist since 2008. She trains artists at her school in Cologne.

Her perspective locates humans and nature in the post-Anthropocene. Her series of images captures the moment of silence in which one begins to realize that the beauty and continued existence of nature is not and cannot be reconciled with the current concept of “humanity”. The human being as such must gradually dissolve in its structure in order to become one again with the flow of nature.

By 2028, a series of 8 exclusive NFTs will be created together with New Art Horizon.

Miyano Kenske, NFT Künstler

Miyano, Kenske 

(*1988 in Japan) has been studying fine art at the Münster Art Academy since 2015. Since 2016 he has been a student in the class of Daniele Buetti and Keren Cytter. His work includes installations, sculptures, videos and drawings.

Playing with reality is Miyano’s thematic and artistic interest. The functioning of memory, the play with true and false memories, between historical narratives and the trials and tribulations of the present.

For his series Illustration of Dante’s Inferno (2023), he used AI to transform individual scenes from this story into realistic-looking images. The images generated are sometimes changed through distortion or minor artistic interventions, which provokes irritation and confusion as well as the question of reality and fiction when viewed.

Osiris, Max 

(*1979) initially studied law and business administration in the United States. After his studies, he decided to travel for several years and discovered his passion for art. After his return to the USA, he showed predominantly paintings in his first exhibitions in 2016, including at the Blank Slate Gallery, Florida. In 2019 he took part in one of the first group exhibitions on crypto art in Los Angeles.

Since 2018 he has been working primarily with digital technologies and is one of the first generation of crypto artists. He uses AI in an experimental way to create and combine visuals from different genres. This usually results in digital collages or glitch art, which are his defining artistic aesthetics. Inspired by years of travel, his art seeks to create a field of different symbols from different cultures and to weave tapestries of symbolism intended to evoke a sense of awe for the natural world.

Von Rohden, Stella: 

(*1978 in Bremen) lives and works in Cologne, Bremen and Worpswede. She studied cultural studies, art studies and fine art in Frankfurt a. O., Braunschweig, Berlin and Belgrade. Her work has been shown, among others, in the Museum für Photography Braunschweig, in the Galerie Koal, at Shoot the Lobster, at Diko-Reisen Nagel Draxler, in the Kunstverein Braunschweig, in the RAE Weissensee and she exhibited together with Display_xyz at the Opaf, among others. She received, among other things, a studio scholarship from the Cologne Art Association, a travel scholarship from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and a work scholarship from the Schöppingen artists’ village.

In her artistic work, Stella von Rohden often deals with the question of how images are created. This creates process-oriented works, visualizations and perspectives that go beyond established structures, as well as diverse impulses and narratives.

In her series Out of Joint (2023) she explores various questions such as: What place do images play in the human-nature relationship? How are images captured when a dualistic world view that focuses on people is increasingly coming to an end? With her work she not only tries to address these questions, but also to get closer to the materiality of imagery, with all its interconnections, and to develop images or images as landscape together with the landscape.

Schmidtmann, Michael 

(*1996 in Wiesbaden) initially studied fine art at the Offenbach Art Academy and since 2021 at the Düsseldorf Art Academy. He showed his works in, among others, the Hafenhalle Offenbach (2019), in the Canister, Hamburg (2022), at the “Große Exhibition” in Düsseldorf (2022) and in the Hofheim City Museum (2023). In 2021 he curated 6 exhibitions at the Bonbonniere Offenbach.

His works span wide-ranging genres of art. He expresses himself artistically through painting, photography, collage or sculpture, with composition and perspective often serving as the most important design elements.

Inspired by the pop art concepts of the 60s and 80s, he has adopted the object character of everyday consumer objects with his works FedEx, DHL and Moving (2023). Especially since the Corona pandemic, online trading has increased massively and pedestrian zones all over Germany are characterized by vacancies. For Schmidtmann, the simple shipping boxes illustrate structural, social and socio-economic changes of our time. And after usually only one use, the three-dimensional object is folded into a two-dimensional one and disposed of. In an almost humorous way, the simple utility object of a shipping box becomes a fragile art object.

Unverzart, Olaf: 

(*1972 in Waldmünchen) lives and works in Munich and the Upper Palatinate. He studied photography at the HGB Leipzig and held teaching positions at the Mozarteum Salzburg, the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg, and the University of Applied Sciences Munich. His works have been shown in numerous exhibitions, including in the Fotomuseum Munich (2008), in the Kunstsammlung NRW, Düsseldorf (2017), in the Villa Massimo, Rome (2022) and most recently in the Galerie Vogdt, Munich (2023).

The photographs have something unvarnished, curious and reserved at the same time. He often works in parallel on several long-term photographic studies that complement or extend each other. In addition to topography and landscape, his interest lies in documentary projects that address the relationship between people and their surroundings. Despite the frequent serial cycles, the individual image always has an autonomous character. The variety of visual languages ​​and the use of different camera systems and image formats create an unusual and constantly reinterpretable complexity in his works.

The 33-part series FROM HERE, excerpts of which were presented as part of Horizons, was recorded in the new federal states from the mid-1990s. They reflect his involuntary and immediate West German-Bavarian-influenced view of a different German culture that was previously unknown to him. The title of this series was the advertising slogan of the East German consumer supermarkets: “We are, like them, FROM HERE”.

Wiater, Constanze 

(*1984 in Bonn) lives and works in Cologne. From 2007 to 2014 she studied fine art at the Düsseldorf Art Academy with Thomas Grünfeld (master student in 2013). She has shown her works in exhibitions and projects at Ginerva Gambino, Cologne (2014), Greene Exhibitions, Los Angeles (2015), Just Married, Brussels (2016), and the Neuer Aachener Kunstverein (2018 & 2019), among others. Since 2020 she has been working on various catalog projects on topics such as “Unexcited Photography” or “Photographs as Heterotopia?” In 2022 she was in Marseille for a longer stay as an artist in residency.

In more recent works, fragments of her own body are depicted using the picture-in-picture technique. By adding images of floral shapes, external textures, colors, surfaces and structures play a significant role alongside her own body. The insertion of motifs from the plant world creates a relationship between human physicality and botany. For her, the idea of ​​fragmentation is closely linked to the concept of assembly, in which different images are combined into a new whole to reveal a deeper meaning. In a very poststructural sense, the fragment is a possible basis for more complete assignments of meaning.

Anonymous (Blue Woman aka Marina Blue): 

Blue Woman is a young artist from North Rhine-Westphalia who deals with the color spectrum of classical abstraction and Nouveau Réalisme and brings them into a contemporary form. In the spirit of minimalism, their works are not titled and the author of a work does not play a role in the interpretations to be made, which are constantly in flux and may, perhaps must, be continued, just as Foucault or Eco recognized and discovered decades ago. Therefore, she wants to remain anonymous and to be able to carry out the greatest possible range of interpretation, assignment of meaning and destruction of artistic guidelines.
