SLAVA OSTAP OSINSKI
BERLIN | GERMANY
a.k.a Ostap, is born in eastern Ukraine. He lives in Germany since 1995 and in Berlin for more than 10 years. Like the tape art scene itself, his artistic roots are in the street art scene (graffiti), however he now works exclusively with tape. He works as a free artist in Germany, the Ukraine and Russia. He was resident artist at Urban Spree Gallery from 2012 to 2014. In that time he made contact with the free art scene and developed his artistic style together with other resident artists. Ostap’s specialty is live-taping, i.e. creating artworks live, in front of an audience. Besides these, sometimes three-dimensional performances, he also creates tape and glass paintings on acryl, as well as sculptures like “Tornado”. For the Tape Art Convention, he connects the international scene to the local scene. He will also participate in curating the exhibition.
