Buntlack

Horas (Talin Lopez) and Prank194 (Sebastian Marian Horvath) from the collectiv “Buntlack”. Horas started his career as a grafitti artist in 1993, Prank194 got gripped by the grafitti virus only short time later. Ever since Horas and Prank194 abide by their passion with heart and soul. In their early days it was more about the status within the grafitti scene and in the streets. Today, their goal is to impress the Buntlack stamp within the art scene and to the rest of the society. No matter if on canvas, in the internet, in galleries, in the air, on water or anywhere else – Buntlack separated from the constraints of the grafitti world and are now living their style as desired and required. The artistic freedom of BusinessPunks convinced Buntlack to create their authentic style of urban art on linings. Buntlack created a contrast between street-talk and catwalk. http://www.bunt-lack.de/

Günter Edlinger

Born in 1958 in Salzburg, Edlinger lives and works in Salzburg. Since 1993 he is a very remakred independent artist. Edlinger is always searching for an unusal handling of unusual materials with high technical finesse, especially when he merges and imitates mediums. Working with BusinessPunks opened him the opportunity to create on a new medium, a suit. Ich vertraue, im absoluten Sinn, der Intelligenz des Lebens. Wobei, ich nehme alles, was mir das Leben gibt und lasse mich vom Leben vögeln (musen). Diese Intimität ist der Ursprung meines Vertrauens. Großkotziges Denken ist für Narzissten, großzügig und frei denken ist für Rebellen wie mich. http://www.edlinger-unikat.com/

Saskia Porkay

Saskia Porkay experienced her early childhood in Munich’s Bohemian district of Schwabing. With her father Martin Porkay, who worked as an art expert in Old Masters and Art mediator, she visited the great museums of the world. Exerting fascination by the fatherly Art Library, woke her early interest in painting. When she lost her father, who called her affectionately when she was four years old ‘my little Mona Lisa’, her life changed radically and sustainably. This was followed by sad years in children’s homes under church leadership. The Catholic nuns were not very pleased with her uncomfortable questions and her revolutionary ideas. At the age of 15, she left the place of “hypocrites” and also finished her school career at the same time. Thanks to her pragmatic abilities, she survived the time on the road without major damage. From now on she had to decide all on her own what was right for her. Of worriers, active and passive preventers, she was not impressed. She developed practical ideas for the representation of pictures, reported several utility patents, which were also recognized by the German Patent Office. Some of her inventions have been implemented for many years and enrich the international…
