ART-o-MAT

You know the situation when you are invited to a friends party and don’t know what you should bring as a present. Sure, flowers or something to drink is always nice, but not yet creative. As I’m in automation since many years I found this little mechanical machine with an great idea from some artists to solve my problem one Evening in April 2013.

The ART-o-MAT in Aachen

The Art-o-Mat

The ART-o-MAT in Full SizeThe German painter Marcel Schoenen now had an idea where he helps you in such a situation. He created an Art-o-Mat or in German language a “KUNSTautomat”.

He and his wife are doing – beneath their other art work – some nice little paintings and offer this round the clock in front of their shop in the centre of Aachen, a City close to the borders to Belgium and the Netherlands.

See more at their website at Kunsthandlung Schoenen or stop by at the Shop in Aachen. Here is a Link via Foursquare to the location.

One of a kind

Every picture is „one of a kind“ as the artist made this specially for the KUNSTautomat.

There are always two different style options to choose from. In this month you may have a nice view from the City of Aachen painted on wood by the artist Marcel Schoenen which he titled “Stadtansichten” or a “Songletter” from Britta Schoenen painted on paper. Both comes in a size of 10 by 7 cm (4 by 2,75 inch) and in a litte paper box which is really nice as a present for the one you like or the one who invited you to the party this evening where you forgot to went shopping for.

ART-o-MAT in action

While writing this blog post, I found at youtube as well a little video about the ART-o-MAT in actions where somebody is getting a litte picture out of the machine. Have a look yourself and whenever you are close next time, feel free to use it.

Support international project

The two other things I really enjoy on this idea it the price of each art. For only 7 € or 9€ in coins you get a great present. This is a more than fair value and the artists as well support with 1€ per picture the project „Casa do Armorhttps://www.facebook.com/casadoamorrecife in Brasilia where eldery people without money get a home.
