Ital Thai Chinese and Paint is a compilation of the first collaborative work by Zuni Halpern and Erik Steinbrecher. The booklet shows montages of photographs and paintings. All the photographed advertisings are collected in the streets. The paintings on paper are studio works. Both materials, views of fusion food and plates of abstract designs are melted. These "painted meals" can be considered as ornaments in the urban context of fast gastronomy and catering.
Erik Steinbrecher (Basel, 1963), based in Berlin, attended night courses in art and completed his studies in architecture. Zuni Halpern (Zurich, 1978) is currently based in Zurich and Chicago. Halpern has been studying art and graphic design.
In the near future Erik Steinbrecher and Zuni Halpern will collaborate on more publications.
