Meet The Artist

Conduct interviews with the art experts for a gallery magazine


Blog post from the series of Socialising In The Art World


At the beginning of 2020 I replied to an open call published by Blue Bee Gallery Magazine.


The magazine does not only bring views from various experts in the art industry about their experiences in the art world but also it gives a space for raising artists across the media who have different artistic approach and expressions.


My first published interview was with Berlin based artist Fabrizio Poltronieri who I met in Somos at Scope Sessions.

Fabrizio who is an artist/curator/lecturer generating his revenue from teaching at university in London and art commissions. Fabrizio caught my eye because of his paintings which are actually made by AI.


I liked his statement that even so, the painting is created by AI, it is him as a human who has to make the first step, because AI does not have the need to express itself in spite of doing most of the work.


The second one is with Anna Franek who runs Gallery Anna25 in Kreuzberg, Berlin.


Anna has opened her gallery 7 years ago and nurtured a traditional gallerist/artist relationship. Anna has her base of collectors who purchase artworks from her selection of artists.


The artists have regular art shows in her gallery and once in a while they are the guest artists.


Occasionally her FB account gets locked out for inappropriate content because Anna is truly dedicated to the artists who are not afraid of challenging stereotypes and social conventions.

The third interview is with Paulus from SomoS Art House which is an art organisation committed to the alternative art scene in Berlin. Somos provides well known artist in residency programme.


Usually there are up to 8 artists in residency and each of them get their own intern to assist them with their art project.

Apart from the interviews, I have managed to write 2 art reviews about Dutch artist based in Berlin and London Diana Wolzak from BBA Gallery and Tamara K from Kornfeld Gallery which I discovered during my gallery art walk in Berlin Art Week.
