After I have met Mark Bern in Zurich today, I have decided to mention a few words about him on my ADA-B Art blog.

Mark is a wonderful person with a great new artistic approach that deserves to be shared with.

Mark Bern, born in 1979, is an emerging artist from Zurich, Switzerland. As a teenager, Bern explored the possibilities of image manipulation on his first computer – a Commodore 64, but it is only now, twenty years later, that he has shown his creative output to the public. His digital artworks feature abstract, pixelated forms that borrow various elements from mosaic patterns to cubism; he refers to this unique style as pixel art. 

As far as I know there is no artist focusing on the same style like I do. My art reflects the modern digital zeitgeist of today’s generation. It is abstract, pixelated, flashy and gaudy.

Mark what has influenced you the most?

My first computer, a Commodore 64: I started playing around with pixels as an art form back in the 90’s. Back then I was surrounded by geeks, programmers, hackers and other innovators in the field of information technology. Personal computers were not part of our lives like today, so I was excited to create art with new electronic devices.

   Mark has also mentioned to me his favorites book about art.

 

   Musenküsse by Mason Currey.

It is a Book about the usual and everyday routine of an Artist. The book is Describing the facts, that we are not all as crazy as it sometimes expected to be from an artist. Mason Currey writes that every Artist must have a very well planned daily structure and high focus on what he does.This just reminded me of how frustrating it can be when I am aiming to keep my work on a schedule. Unfortunately sometimes there is not a one single brush stroke that I can do.On days like this a say “today I was simply not productive” and then I head all exhausted to my bed, hoping that tomorrow I can fulfill my passion again.

This book will be my new reading material for my summer holidays.
