PAINTINGS AND OTHER PERSONAL PROJECTS
Art is not a 9 to 5 job but a way of life
PUNK ROCK & REBELS
SOLO SHOW at Sold Out Gallery, Bochum
5. Sept. - 9. Oct 2014
All my paintings for "Punk Rock & Rebels" are handpainted with acrylics on canvas.
Format: 160cm x 100cm (63" x 40")
"Jan Meininghaus presents his personal selection of Underground-heroes from Punkrock, Metal and Independent on large-format paintings.
Not so much pop-idols but rather raw icons of a long gone era, when backyard-kids grew up to be legends and released songs to hit their generation like bombs. Angry Punkrock-Revolutionaries and Hardrock-Rebels that could never be bred by the world today."
Sometimes it's like a little Katharsis to turn off Mac and iphone, listen to some old vinyl and create some art the old-fashioned way with brushes and acrylic paint. Sometimes huge paintings arise from such evenings and I look forward to show them in galleries some day soon.
"Alte Schule Manufaktur" is our own little printing studio.
CUSTOMIZED VINYL TOYS
The Designer-Toy-scene is not very well known in Europe, yet it's a great way to create some custom 3-dimensional work. It kinda revitalizes the feeling from childhood days building model-kits with an up-to-date streetculture appeal.
After all the years working freelance I am still deeply in love with illustration and want to try new styles, techniques and topics additional to my commissioned jobs. There's so much more to draw and so little time...
