Spearheaded by legendary studios like Hipgnosis, and immortal trailblazers like Warhol, Mapplethorpe, and Giger, it's been a long path to rock and roll acquiring its status as legitimate art.
It took a while for Heavy Metal to get there too. From the hair metal days to the variety of styles in contemporary heavy music, it's been a long journey. This scene - our scene - is burgeoning with interesting artists and Heavy Metal is well represented at poster art events (i.e. SXSW's Flatstock, etc) the world over.
E-kunst is a gallery presenting the finest works from the best artists operating within the Heavy Metal genre all in one place.
The name is as bold as the art and music itself. E-kunst is a reference to Entartete Kunst; degenerate art in German. It is a term adopted by the Nazis to describe modern art i.e. it's the art Hitler DID NOT like. It is also a reference to Electronic Kunst, meaning "online culture".
There is nothing political in this, just our denial of any art code and authority. We embrace this title of deviant, degenerate art as Heavy Metal does to this very day.
E-Kunst is part of Season of Mist, the leading French independent label for all Metal music.
