Punchy, edgy artwork in the Style of Street Art / Urban Art. Collage and mixed media (watercolor, marker, charcoal, oilsticks). "yOU!" demands ones attention, it is unusual and different, a painting and a statement.
"yOU!" is painted on an old vintage wall chart and ready to hang with two black wooden bars on the top and bottom. It is sealed with a matt varnish (Lascaux), signed on the front and signed and dated on the back. The wall chart is old and used, what strengthens the style of the artwork - please have a look at the close ups to see that.
This piece of art is shipped rolled, in the middle of the upper wooden bar you'll find a ribbon and a metal ring, so just enroll the artwork and hang it directly on your wall. Please have a look at the close ups for this and don't hesitate to ask me if you have questions!
The wooden bars are 121 cm (47.6 in) wide, the painted canvas is 76 x 114 x 0.2 cm (29.9 x 44.9 x 0.1 in).

I find my inspirations in colours and materials - for example in a beautiful deep turquoise mountain lake or in the washed-out grey of concrete in a city. Based on such impressions and inspirations I commence my work and my artwork often comes to life in little series. Each painting is unique and the creation and development of each painting is a time consuming and slow process, usually lasting many weeks and in some cases up to a few months.
My paintings are acrylic mix paintings, for example, acrylic paint with charcoal, oil pastels, pencils, spray paint and many other artistic materials. I often combine these materials with natural materials and objects from nature (e.g., leaf seeds) as well as with ash, sand or building materials such as grout or plaster.
My pieces of art are created informally. Each step builds on the previous step, leaving room for chance but also for corrections and erasures, until the final finished artwork has evolved as a composition of colour, shape, texture and surface.
Due to the complexity of my paintings and the interplay of (collage) materials, my works are not simply one-dimensional, rather they entice the viewer not just to explore them with their eyes but also to touch them.
My works of art are informal; they are my personal expressions of my experiences and impressions and each piece of art is truly unique and only one of its kind.
