Holy Crap! It’s a Beeple Retrospective
From the release:
MAXON is excited to announce the incredible work of 3D artist Mike Winkelmann, best known in the creative community the world over as Beeple, and one of the foremost users of the company’s Cinema 4D software application, will be on display at “Crap: A Beeple Retrospective.”
Presented by the Made in NY Media Center by IFP gallery in DUMBO, Brooklyn, New York City, the show takes place February 1 – 28, 2018; artist reception February 1 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
The exhibition features the extensive body of motion graphics work and VJ clips Winkelmann has created the past decade and a half for some of the worlds most prolific electronic musicians including deadmau5, Skrillex, Avicii, Zedd, Taio Cruz, Tiësto, Amon Tobin, Wolfgang Gartner, and Flying Lotus, and many others.
Winkelmann is a graphic designer from Appleton, Wisconsin who says, “…he makes a variety of art crap across a variety of media…” (source Beeple.com) His short films have screened at Miami Art Basel, onedotzero, Prix Ars Electronica, the Sydney Biennale, Ann Arbor Film Festival, and many others.
For over the past ten-and-a-half years, Winkelmann has earned a global reputation not only for his creative prowess and his body of work created with Cinema 4D, but for originating the concept of “everydays”, where he crafts a new piece of art every day – start to finish.
He then makes his project files freely available for the art community to dissect and learn. Sometimes the asset gets put into a video or short film, other times it is created just for the sake of sharpening his craft. Under the Creative Commons license Winkelmann also makes available his VJ clips for both commercial and non-commercial work in any form.
