availability unknown, if interested please write an email

Drawings From My Previous Life is a collection of Mai Ueda’s closest friends watercolor portraits that the artist created during the last decade, when she was part of the so called Neen art movement. (Englisch)

'Neen did represent for me a new and different approach to the contemporary art world and practice. It is surprising to see how you can produce poetry and beauty with the use of technology and the Internet devices.' The book includes portraits of Greek architect Andreas Angelidakis as he is taking a bath in Christian Mollerʼs Jacuzzi in West Hollywood, just wearing black sunglasses; Dutch artist Rafael Rozendaal that is instead portrayed swimming and floating in a red lifebuoy in a pool in Rio de Janeiro; artist Mai Ueda herself in a sweet friendly hug with Neen’s founder Miltos Manetas or as she is having fun dressed up with her favorite Yohji Yamamoto white jacket. Portraits of artists and friends Angelo Plessas, Nora Lowinsky, Mike Calvert and Serge Becker are also included in the book. (Quelle: Verlag)
