Our local landscape in November, my daughter, Pokemon, how people walk.

What’s the structure of a typical day like for you?

Wake my daughter, walk the tiny crazy dog, I´m a trained musician on Sitar, too, I play everyday a few hours in Vilayat Khan Style. Going to my studio by bike and do some action with all my colors and canvases, pedal home, buy some stuff and cook a lot of food.

 

What are some of your favourite source for information?

I mostly check Facebook, because due to my connections it´s now a perfect daily newsmagazine for art, gallerists, shows and trends.

I love the internet, contacting nice people all over the world has never been so easy and effective. I mostly work with my Facebook Account and it is now sort of a very serious office for my artbusiness.

Justine Otto

Where are you living?

I have two opposite living surroundings. One is in the outback of civilisation where nobody comes around close to the river Elbe. And on the other hand I live in Berlin and sometimes in Hamburg.

 

How old you are? (if you don’t mind answering)

i-m 42.

 

What inspires you?

Nearly everything can be a source of inspiration. For example music is one influence in my artwork. Some of my paintings have song titles .„Fourth Corner“ for example is a song titel from Trixie Whitley. For a while I enjoyed to visit abandonned places because the vibe of the just left and now forgotten has been a sparkling inspiration for me. I also collect old photographs and magazines as a source for my paintings.

 

Tell me about what you do?

I paint mainly , sometimes I make sculptures and collages. Art the moment I curate some exhibitions and do the graphical work for the cataloque for the next group exhibition i’ll be part of..

 

What’s the structure of a typical day like for you?

„A typical day“ looks like getting out oft the cosy bed and start everything with good coffee out of my ECM Cosmic coffee Machine. Than my lovely Labrador Minka wants to speed up and we go jogging in the landscape. Then I do the e-mail communication and coordinate the next exhibitions that will come. After a lot of green tea I finally start painting. I prefer to paint at night when I got the feeling to be complete on my own.

 

What are some of your favourite source for information?

newspaper and radio,I love listening to radio programmes at night.

 

How social media influence your life?

I have a fb site and I must admit that I found quite a few interesting artists on instagram. I think it`s a good source for discoveries. Sometimes I get fucked up with all this monitor staring and I stop it for a while.

Where are you living?

In the South-West of Berlin – not the really hip part of town. Yet.

 
How old you are? (if you don’t mind answering)

43

 

What inspires you?

Mainly literature and Music. For me the lyrics are very important when I listen to music. I am also a pod-cast junkie. But I have most of my best ideas, while running.

Tell me about what you do?

I am a painter. I create images that I hope will move people. Like trowing a roc into water and watching the ripples spread. Figures play a very important role: humans can’t help but react emphatically to images of people. That’s something I work with in my paintings.

 

What’s the structure of a typical day like for you?

I get up at 5:30, work out make breakfast and get the children ready for school. Then I go for a run with our dog. The rest of the morning I usually spend answering emails (or questionnaires ) and taking care of business stuff. I am a great believer in naps. I take a power nap of about 15 Minutes every day. After that I get started on my paintings. I work until 6 or 8 depending.

What are some of your favourite source for information?

I read The New York Times and The New Yorker and the Süddeutsche Zeitung. But I also listen to NPR.

 

How social media influence your life?

I started to use social media very reluctantly. Because I am self-employed, they are a necessity, like having a current website. I usually set myself a limited timeframe to spend posting onto or reading social media. As a source of information or to really foster contacts I feel they have very limited potential-
