We are proud to premier the third part of Drew Bachrach’s video American Sadhu.
The American Sadhu series is a collaboration between filmmaker Drew Bachrach and actor/clothing designer Tracy Powell. In each episode Tracy’s “Traveler” character explores remote and unknown holy locations around Los Angeles. This wandering mystic’s adventures and rituals are a riff of new age pseudo-spiritualism and postmodern folklore.
Drew Bachrach is a Detroit bred artist/filmmaker currently living and working in Culver City, CA. During the week Drew produces and edits video content for a wide range of clients while his weekends are spent in he studio working on large-scale acrylic paintings of empty backyard swimming pools.
The Arkitip Chronicles aim is to provide you with access to studios, behind the scenes looks at creative types and features on artists globally. We will also collaborate and showcase artists original film and video works.
In this spirit, we keep true to our founding principles:
Support the arts
Promote freedom of expression
Make art affordable and accessible
Thank you for the support.

We are proud to announce the 60th issue edition of Arkitip – Max Fish.
Max Fish was an uncontested downtown New York City institution. From 1989–2013 it was a gathering place for artists, skateboarders, musicians and the occasional celebrity to congregate because it was the kind of place where all these people felt at home. It was a social vortex for these groups and many of the friendships that began here have given birth to inestimable projects, ideas and collaborations among its patrons. The owner of Max Fish is German-born artist Ulli Rimkus, who set up shop on Ludlow Street in 1989, when the neighborhood was more famous for selling dope than cocktails. Part dive bar and part gallery; the bar hosted themed art shows and amassed an impressive permanent collection that included “Julio Iglesias” by Mark Flood, “Rat Cop” by Tom Otterness and “Bronx Elvis” by John Ahearn. In the mid to late ‘90s, as a broader skate culture started to bleed into the music, art and fashion worlds, Max Fish started to become a hang out for skateboarders.
As customary, we have created a video to celebrate the release which can be seen below. The video is a visual story with commentary from patrons and past employees.
Arkitip No. 0060 Max Fish will be hand numbered in a limited-edition and as always come packaged with a collector’s item. The edition has been designed by artist André Razo and made possible with support from Converse.

We are proud to support longtime Arkitip family member Arlie Carstens’s band Atoms and Void recently released album and nothing else.
Image: “The Architect & The Atomizer, 2014″
When Arlie Carstens started writing the music that would evolve into the Atoms and Void debut album, he couldn’t have known it would take such a Herculean effort to finish – that it would require nine years, hundreds of hours of recordings, countless trips between Seattle and Los Angeles, and more than a dozen collaborators. It was worth it: A beautifully haunting and richly orchestrated collection that defies easy categorization, the album is more like a 48-minute suite than a 12-track LP. Conceptually, the project’s seeds were planted nearly twenty years ago, when Carstens discovered the final two albums by influential British band Talk Talk, 1988’s Spirit of Eden and 1991’s Laughing Stock. “Ever since first hearing those albums, I’ve wanted to do a project like this – something that has a distinct sound and vision but that is not a ‘band’ necessarily,” he says.
