I'm a creative busybody whose today is always busier than the last. I guess you can say I'm a bit of a workaholic, but only when it comes to my creative pursuits.
"Fotografie ist eine Leidenschaft. Sie ist die Kunst, mit Licht zu gestalten" ronny ritschel
Ronny Ritschel sagt: “Fotografie ist mehr als nur sein Equipment zu kennen. Du musst immer wieder das “Sehen” trainieren und sehr geduldig auf den passenden Moment warten um ihn aus deiner Sicht der Welt zu präsentieren. Aus diesem Grund ist Kunst auch immer etwas sehr persönliches…”
Ronny Ritschel lebt und arbeitet in Hamburg und kann bereits auf mehrere internationale und nationale Fotoausstellungen, sowie Veröffentlichungen in Printmagazinen zurückblicken. Neben seiner Arbeit als Fotograf, ist er der Herausgeber des deutschen Fotografieblogs blogtimes.info.

Follow the Collage Art of Kareem Rizk - Official fan page on Facebook:
Born in Australia in 1982, Kareem Rizk is a Melbourne-based collage artist, illustrator and designer who graduated from Monash University in 2004 with a Bachelor in Visual Communication.
After graduating, Rizk’s creative interests began to turn to fine art and illustration, particularly mixed media collage. While working as a Graphic Designer at Melbourne’s No.1 selling newspaper, The Herald Sun, his interest in collage continued to develop and by 2006 it became a focus of his endeavours.
Since his shift of focus to fine art and illustration in 2006 and his pursuit of developing his style, Rizk has gained extensive international recognition and has been noted as one of the contemporary masters of collage, as well as one of the premier mixed media artists working today.
Working mediums include collage, acrylic, oil pastel, pencil, solvent transfers and acrylic transfers. The work is highly textured and often multi-layered with a nostalgic and weathered quality. Rizk’s works can often be vibrant with colour, while others display a very refined or minimal palette.
Working methods also extend to digital collage with a very gritty and realistic display of texture and layering. The digital work began as an experiment in blurring the line between handmade collage and digital collage.
Other work includes freelance illustration, design and art commissions for various clients including news and editorial publications, galleries, university institutes, the boutique fashion industry and the music and entertainment industry.
Exhibitions include solo shows and group shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Byron Bay, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Washington DC, Miami, London, Stockholm, Zurich, Barcelona, Madrid and Milan. Rizk's work has been published in numerous high profile art magazines and books and his work is held in private collections worldwide.
