Rioting Venus

2017-09-18T10:54:04+00:00

With this motive I tired to create a photo-realistic picture of the Venus of Milo. To do this I used a high resolution picture of the famous statue in the Louvre, cut over 20 layers and  painted her using a realistic palette: body tones and a blue tones to make the toga look like [...]

Sicher?!

2017-08-07T14:50:03+00:00

"Sicher?!" (Secure/Sure?!) is an installation that I created for the MSArtville festival in Hamburg-Wilhemlsburg. It consists of a half-circle showing border police of the 7 countries that (temporarily) abandoned the Schengen-treaty on the outside.

Soulmates #2

The colours were chosen to represent one of the national flag’s colours. The shown people are (upper row): Donald J. Trump (USA), Emmanuel [...]

‘Google Heads’

2017-07-11T22:58:21+00:00

This is the mural version of my 'Google-Heads' project. An entire room was painted with four heads on different coloured background facing each other. The crossed-out phrase 'Don't be evil' refers to Google's abandoned slogan.  Also, shown here is the installation that I built for the festival. A transparent head wearing sunglasses and blinders [...]
