Slava Ostap: I am the Tape-Art Street-Art Artist from Berlin. I was born and raised in Ukraine. Also there i studied Architecture. I have been living In Germany since 1995 and since 2003 in Berlin. I the years 2012-14 I was the Resident-Artist of URBAN SPREE Gallery Berlin. This is where I started my way in Street and Contemporary ART .
Five years ago I found the Tape Art – Art of gluing the sticky tape, and I have worked with this media ever since. Very often I mix the Tape –Art with other forms of Art, for example, Street Art, trying to give the impulse to find the new art-forms. Installations with the sticky tape give me the opportunity to present my ideas with the new point of view. My works have been already presented in different Projects and Galleries, but mostly – on the streets of Berlin.
I must say, I distance myself from the classic form of Street art , like Graffiti or Tagging – with my Art, I try to arouse an Emotion in the Audience, especially positive emotions, like smile or laugh, or on the contrary – to show my personal attitude to the modern culture, politics, society, religion and sex. It does not mean, that in every work there is a great Meaning, sometimes, I like to work with the abstract forms and minimalistic shapes. In 2013 I had the opportunity to work in Ukraine and in 2014 – in Russia. There we created Tape Art and Street Art Workshops. The audience really loved it and took active part in the process. So, here I would like to present you my works and ideas.
