What could possibly depict airbrushing better than a collection of some of its finest works? That’s a question that Jorg Warzyceck, the Chairman of the Airbrush-Fachverband e.V., asked himself at the beginning of the introduction to his new book ”Airbrush Portfolio No. 1“. And that’s what it’s all about in the small, but fine illustrated book. 31 artists from the Airbrush-Fachverband e.V. display their pictures on paper, canvas, automobiles, motorcycle parts, house walls, human skin, and various objects. The spectrum stretches from animal and human portraits to landscapes and fantasy motifs to decorative graphics and illusionary paintings.
Those works were then all submitted in the fall of 2017. The sole prerequisite: A membership in the Airbrush-Fachverband e.V. As such, the book features members of the old guard such as Roland Kuck, Marcus Eisenhuth, Christine Dumbsky, Marco Stolz or Sascha Kohler as well as beginners and hobby artists such as Martin Karwata, Thomas Wiegand, and Günter Borgartz. Each of these artists introduces him or herself not only via their pictures, but also in a short write-up, sharing a bit about how he or she developed as an artist, what their motivation is, and where they get their ideas from.
The diversified illustrated book “Airbrush Portfolio No. 1“ (ISBN 978-3-941656-51-2) has been put together by the Airbrush-Fachverband e.V. and published by newart medien & design. The book is available in stores for a price of 12.95 EUR.
