The images I picked are some of my own personal favorites. I think they are strong in the expressions and give the contemplator the feeling he’s part of their emotion. Also it’s a bit of a mix between pencil drawing/digital work and scribbling. I think I’m strong in architecture drawing as well. I love showing face expressions period. On 80% of my drawings you see people that don’t smile, you see strong characters and a lot of emotion through the eyes…Nadina
I grew up in Germany, born in May 20th, and i just love scribbling and painting/drawing from the button of my heart. I always have.
And basically that’s it lol. There is no deep story behind it. I’ve never tried to spread my work under the people for some reason I have always been kind of shy about it until 1 or 2 years ago, I decided to start posting more and share my work.
I am currently working on my own web site (which will take some time cause I’m learning it from scratch on). I went to School and graduated with the German university-entrance diploma in art. Then studied architecture for 3 semesters and dropped out cause I wasn’t happy doing what I was doing. I then tried to resign for graphic design but the number of people that get accepted each semester is very small, you really have to be lucky, and I sure wasn’t. So, now I’m working an office job from 9-5 and concentrating on my web site. I have some commission work here and there but not as much as I would like to yet. People nowadays don’t want to spend money on art, they think it its easy to throw down some cool lines on the paper so they can’t understand when someone actually charges them. When I have my web site done, I will additionally do an exhibition with all of the works I have. I can’t wait. Until that happens, people can find and look at my stuff on www.facebook.com/HamataArt.
My statement on art:
This is really hard. I don’t think I always have a statement on my art. I sure do want it to have an impact if you look at it, I want the contemplator to feel like he has to look at it . Like the person he’s looking at is staring at him, trying to tell him something. I want people to fall in love with the shapes and the lines of the drawing. With the color or the bitterness of the face expression, with the eyes that attract your, something deep, something different… maybe the same motive but it my own way, with my own signature, with my own way. I want that people see that I drew it end to end. That I sat down and drew straight through. I want that people see that I caught the bug to create something out of my eyes. I lose and find myself in one piece. In that process. I get to know myself better with each painting and I can put my mind at ease…to me its like a getaway. Something I give myself for pleasure, to stimulate my mind…to stay soulful, inside and outside. It’s the door to my heart and my outlet at the same time. Art is one of my biggest blessings.
