A digital food based provocation -Are you hungry? Check out edgarunddieter!

foodart

Do you know the most famous and provocative works of art about food?

Artists make tremendous sacrifices in their lives in order to feed their creative addiction, whether they become financially successful or not. Inspiration comes from action, from experimentation, from the chaos, the fire, the big wins and the big fails. This is why I admire creative minds on how they master the art of the unknown!

Reason enough for me today, to introduce to you a project realized by two hungry artists based in Switzerland & Germany: edgarunddieter has been founded by Christoph Dieter Göttel and Markus Edgar Ruf.

Who stands behind edgarunddieter?

Christoph Göttel creates modern art in Basel using his graphic and illustration background as a way to let an image speak for itself. His objective is always to make a clear statement. Find more on Chris Art here.
The other creative mind of the project is Markus Edgar Ruf. He is based in Lörrach and specialized in photography, videography and graphic design. Find more on his work here.

Together they go viral with a new project combining all of their creative power!

Let’s talk about their project_ May it be a little more?

Food offers best prerequisites for arts to play wild! And if you give some meat into the hands of two experimental minds as Edgar and Dieter guess what comes out?

Not everything is sausage what we do, but almost everywhere is sausage. When is there too much “sausage” around? This question is addressed in this work. Implemented in an environment that couldn’t be more contradictory and yet suggests a common thread. It is the weariness of everything. The more absurd this connection of the pictorial structure, the greater it draws you into the visual language – edgarunddieter –
