"Bears" is a series of paintings by Sebastian Bieniek (B1EN1EK), consisting of 8 paintings of different sizes and technics.
Most of the paintings in this series were painted in oil on canvas.
The painting "The Ballerina Bear" (No. 7), on the other hand, is an overpainting of a portrait by Sebastian Bieniek, which was originally painted by a Georgian painter.
Some of the paintings were created accidentally or were found (ready mades). So the "Universal Bear" (No. 2) was originally a color palette until Sebastian Bieniek "discovered" a bear in it and gave it the name "Universal Bear". The situation is similar with "The Sad Bear". This work was also "found". It was originally a plate on which the artist put his tools, until he discovered a "bear" in it, which he named "The Sad Bear" (No. 5).
Noteworthy is also "The Suspended Bear". Sebastian Bieniek found this painting (painted by an unknown painter) next to a rubbish bin in Kreuzberg (that is a part of Berlin), took it with him (adopted it if you want) and called it "The Suspended Bear".
The "Secret Agent Bear Icognito" (No. 3), however, had to wait three years (2009-2012) until he got his final touches. This was nothing but the red nose that Sebastian Bieniek set up in 2012 and named him "Secret Agent Bear Icognito".
Also the last work, "The Unfinished Bear", had to wait from 2009 to 2012 until it got it's titel and got fineshed as an "Unfinished Bear".
