Oehlen’s “Computer Paintings” explore abstract imagery through the use of a 90’s computer. While using monochromatic tones, the artist replicates and extends the results he obtains through computer, and attempts to complete the piece by hand as though he were himself the computer. In doing so, Oehlen liberates the formal boundaries of painting and creates an erratic and charged composition.
About the Skateroom:
Our collective future depends upon business ideas becoming a means for building, financing, and implementing systemic solutions to the globe’s most pressing needs. The Skateroom challenges the status quo of brand and corporate responsibility, and turns consumers into active contributors in socially engaged projects. The Skateroom project unites art buyers, artists, galleries, museums, foundations, retailers, patrons, corporates and non-profits around the world in a new economic model -- « Art for Social Impact ».
Our “5:25” business model is simple: we unleash human creativity and the fruits of artistic labor to donate 5% of the turnover or 25% of the profit from every sale – whichever number is greater.
Through our community’s support, we have so far raised over $500,000 to fund 24 social skate projects dedicated to empowering at-risk youth around the world. By placing works of art on responsibly made skateboards, The Skateroom connects people to the reality that Art for Social Impact is something achievable right now.
