I was born in 1979 in Hamburg, Germany, and I have lived for several years in Brazil, South Africa and France. So I would consider myself to be really cosmopolitan.
I mostly do collages. To me collages are the only authentic and true art in the 21st century because they bring the world together. Collaging means to me to digest reality, to separate things or to re-assemble them in a new way. I use collage techniques to reduce complexity, to unite contradictions.
Most of my inspiration comes from Social Media and traditional media!
I recylce materials, as there is already enough material in this world. I mostly use printed photos or pages from fashion magazines, newspapers and than I add thoughts, aphorisms or quotes.
I want to find a new angle, a new mix of existing materials.
I am interested in topics as beauty, fashion as well as politics and life in general.
I get inspired by Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, James Rosenquist and other Pop-Art artists, as I share their philosophy of making art available for everybody, reproducing beautiful people we can admire and finding a new perspective.
I love street art, so I try to put it into homes, offices or shops - on canvas. And I love imperfection and transcience, so my artwork is never perfect, clean or clinically pure. It is authentic, it is life.
Further I am fascinated by big panorama collages, I would love to create a whole facade of a skyscraper.
My art is part of the #PRESSART Collection of Peter Nobel, Switzerland, as well as of the BOUROUGHS Collection in the United Kingdom.
IMPORTANT: The costs for the shipping are
estimates, depending on the size of the picture, the weight and the region it
is shipped to. But I refund all my customers in case I have charged too much.
All of my artwork is hand made, so they have ripples, blobs, drops of paint, wrinkles, and bumps. For me art is organic, it arises from natural materials, it changes over time. I don't like clinically clean art, I like change, maturation and decline. All three are part of life and my art.
