Painter, Germany

Born 1986 in Kazakhstan, Hell Gette brings our daily emoji-surrounded world straight on the canvas. Just graduating at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich, Gette already made her way straight into some major art collections, including the one of publisher Hubert Burda.

When chatting about her technique, Gette explains, that for painting “Landscape 3.0”, she developed a special technique, layering digital processes with analogue processes in a ping-pong style, adding emojis with an app, painting the composition.

This is what we call a digital native. If you feel it is time for a digital detox but are not willing to completely depart from your favourite smileys, you will love the work of Gette – and the titles are to die for. We cant wait till they will smile at us from the labels of the world’s leading museums. Won’t take too long.

In the art world currently I find most exciting that…
Instagram- I consider it as a milestone in contemporary art history, comparable to Donatello´s David which was the first freestanding bronze sculpture, Instagram is the first (freestanding) virtual showroom with worldwide spreading and networking from artist to galerist/collector/artlover. Plus I love the fact that one can see artworks fresh out of the studio, even before seeing it in a gallery.
