Miles Schuler, Philipp Zrenner & Monty Richthofen

Neu Workshop, Munich, 2019
At the „Vino Magico“ exhibition, three different artistic positions will come together in a former car repair shop for a week, Monty von Richthofen, Miles Schuler and Philipp Zrenner show their latest works in the field of painting.
The exhibition shows the interplay of the various approaches of the young artists and includes an insight into their artistic practice, which seems to merge into a collective experiment, in a „collaboration works“.
The starting point for the cooperation of the three friends will be a trip to the Tuscan countryside in the middle of the year. In an old farmhouse, material is worked on for weeks in practical as well as theoretical execution. This is produced during the stay in Italy and discussed with Italian wine. There is a lot of potential for discussions, as all three seem to be moving in different areas of art, which, however, are often very close in terms of subject matter.
The various positions such as working with writing, tattooing and performance (Monty von Richthofen), painting (Miles Schuler) and sculpture (Philipp Zrenner) found their origin in graffiti and the resulting confrontation with urban spaces, color, Underground, composition and collaborative work.
