MissPublicity’s cultural branch increases visibility for creative minds
Yesterday ArtPublicity announced its extensive portfolio during the Parade Rotterdam. The artistic sister of marketing and PR agency MissPublicity generates a stage for art institutions and now also helps artists from different disciplines to increase their visibility and network. The customer base of ArtPublicity has recently been expanded with bridal photographer FotoBelle, DJ and music producer Warren Fellow, DJ Karim Soliman and the artist trio AAAFRESH123. It was also announced that ArtPublicity will provide the PR around the art collection of one of the most famous post-war artists, Mathieu Ficheroux.
As a sister of marketing and PR agency MissPublicity, ArtPublicity brings art and culture closer to the public, and serves as a springboard for DJs, photographers, musicians, artists and artists. But chefs, galleries, museums and art institutions also belong to the ever-growing stock. The portfolio of ArtPublicity – with previous collaborations with the Wereldmuseum, Mark Peet Visser Gallery, Art Breda and the Veluwe Photo Days – has now been extended with an “ARTist branch” consisting of a number of promising and special names.
Isabelle Hattink is an international wedding photographer with a journalistic style. From various perspectives, Isabelle undetected captures all spontaneous, powerful and exuberant emotions. The talented photographer won the title ‘Fearless Photographer of the year 2017’, making it the first Dutch wedding photographer to call himself the best in the world.
During the years the Dutch DJ and producer Warren Fellow has built up a good track record. Through performances around the world, a long list of releases on various labels and collaborations with prominent artists, he is an established name in electronic music both nationally and internationally.
The originally Egyptian Karim Soliman moved to Rotterdam at a young age where he came into contact with electronic music. In 2011 he won the dj-contest of Michel de Hey and he started with organizing underground dance parties in Rotterdam and surroundings. Nowadays he is staging at major events from Toffler, Milkshake and Strafwerk. This entrepreneur is one of the largest event organizers in Rotterdam, responsible for concepts such as Rotterdam Rave Festival, Modular Festival and the Give Soul Collective.
The three artists Hans Kleinjan, Maikel Kleinjan and Roderik Faasen jointly developed their own distinctive style and started their own gallery under the name AAAFRESH123 (AAA Gallery). This Rotterdam gallery is unique in its kind and does not only show art, but also gives visitors a glimpse into the working method of AAA Gallery by literally creating a hole in the wall to the studio. The three are also involved in various artistic activities outside the gallery and provide live painting during events such as North Sea Jazz, the MTV EMA Awards and two-star restaurant Parkheuvel.
Mathieu Ficheroux is one of the most important Dutch visual artists from the second half of the twentieth century. Highlights in his works are the abstract expressionist paintings from the first half of the sixties, the ‘damaged’ paintings from the seventies and line paintings from the eighties. Ficheroux was a great painter and a brilliant draftsman. Over the years, he has regularly attracted attention in his hometown of Rotterdam with sculptures and (monumental) installations. In 1969 he was awarded the Chabot Prize. Fixeroux’s work still adorns Rotterdam’s streets. One example is the impressive portrait of Multatuli which can be found on the corner of the Van Oldenbarneveltstraat / Mauritsweg and ‘Het Vergeten Bombardement’ at the Gyzingplantsoen. The artist passed away in 2003. His work has been of great influence to Rotterdam and for this reason, has been brought to the attention again and partly returned to the city.
