About Gwenael RattkeView Profile »
French born artist and Berlin resident GWENAËL RATTKE works in collage,silkscreen, photography and xerox graphics. Rattke worked with collage for most of his teenage years producing DIY fanzines, flyers and graphics in the Berlin punk community. Rattke began his queer punk zine, Easily Grossed Out, in the early 1990s. Issues were initially published from Rennes, France, and then later from the U.S.A. The zine featured interviews with bands such as Christ on a Crutch and Capitalist Casualties. Rattke's collages works borrow from the visual codes of the 1960s and 1970s; the works are intricate, ornamental and excessive, and present "an imagined past fire with beauty and sexual freedom." Rattke's work has been exhibited at Galerie Knoth & Krueger, Exile Projects and Arratia Beer, Berlin, Skol, Montreal (2002); YYZ Artists' Outlet, Toronto, (2001), and Romer Young Gallery San Francisco. He Graduated in Communication Studies (Film) from Concordia University, Montreal, in 1997. Rattke lives in West Berlin.Interested in consigning works by Gwenael Rattke? Learn more »
