Temporal - The Art of Stephan Doitschinoff

Documentary and interview
Posted by Gestalten—11/2008

Calma is not only artist Stephan Doitschinoff‘s street alias, but also the abbreviation of “con alma” (c’alma) in Latin, meaning “with soul”. His emblematic metaphoric imagery feeds off Afro-Brazilian folklore, pagan and alchemistic symbolism and contemporary pop culture. Doitschinoff composes spectacular murals and applies his extraordinary talent to emblazon houses, churches and walls in rural cities in his South American homeland. Temporal provided courtesy of Carol Dantas, Paula Cavalcanti (Production Executives), and Bruno Mitih (Director) documents his artistic journey through the Brazilian countryside of Bahia and features an interview with the artist – introducing the complete visual pandemonium of a young urban artist who creates powerful and unique figurative worlds.

Director: Bruno Mitih Art Director: Pedro Inoue Camera Assistant: Thiago Silva Executive Producer: Carol Dantas, Paula Cavalcanti Sound: Saxsofunny A production by Movie and Art 2008

I am Dandy: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman featured on Slate.

The Craft and the Makers reviewed on L'Officiel Hommes. "Der Band bildet verschiedene Leidenschaften ab und zeigt: Handwerk hat nicht nur goldenen Boden. Es bekommt auch junge Impulse, die Tradition und Stil vor dem Vergessen bewahren."

Hello, I am Erik featured on Fluoro.

The Outsiders recommended on Parlor.

The Outsiders featured on GEO.de. "Zwischen Bildern, die Lust machen, die Stadt sofort zu verlassen, findet
der Betrachter immer wieder Interviews mit Menschen, die den Schritt in
die Wildnis bereits gewagt oder das Unterwegssein zu ihrem Leben
gemacht haben."

Our House in the City on Salon.

Elsa und die Nacht recommended on Die Bücherfresser. "Der wunderbar gelungene, poetische Text wird kongenial von surrealen, expressiven Bildern umrundet ... Ebenso wie  eine schöne Einschlaf-Geschichte ist dieses Buch eine zarte Geschichte über Verlust und Versöhnung."
