Artist Erik Schmidt made the move from Herford to Berlin in the mid-90s, settling in a former GDR apartment within a classic "Plattenbau" tower near Alexanderplatz. This is the home where Schmidt painted works including "Zuhause" and "Trolleys," scenes of urban landscapes as viewed from his window. Ignant take us around his apartment, as well as his studio in Wedding, this extra space a necessity with the increasing number of new works. The artist takes part in the Ignant's "'Lieblingsstücke" (favorite items) series, choosing treasured pieces such as an old pair of Premiata boots and a bottle of Maison Martin Margiela's fragrance. The appearance of a few clean pieces courtesy of Vitsoe creates a unique atmosphere, the contrast between those crude, industrial concrete walls and sleek, modern furniture echoing the artist's approach to his contemporary artwork. Catch the full story over at Ignant.
