[Editors’ Note: This coming weekend, we’ll be touring Brooklyn for GO Open Studios, an event in which visitors vote on which artist they feel deserves an exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. As a service to both ourselves and other readers, we’ve scoured the event’s pages for the most promising studios and then sent those artists an email with a few questions about their work. The following posts relay what they told us.]
Vrooom. OK, you already figured out the crux of this art. We wanted to talk to Hubert Dobler because he seems obsessed with motorcycles.
Where are you from? What’s your background?
I am living in Brooklyn since 2001. I’m Austrian. Did a technical school, graduated as an engineer, studied Architecture and Art in Vienna, have a Master’s in Art.
Are you showing your work in galleries?
I showed here in NY at Jack the Pelican Gallery (solo show in 2006) and Open Source Gallery (solo 2009), right now I have a piece at the Crest Hardware Art Show.
Why are you participating in GO?
I would love to show my work at the Brooklyn Museum.
Popping up wheelies with motorcycles and using them also for art installations is fun and convenient. I created already a few different characters, I like to turn them on and let them go ……., sometimes they do endless circles, on other occasions they freak out and go crazy.
