Being influenced by Generation Y’s dilemma to cope with an overload of information in an ever changing and fast-paced environment, I was searching for “my way“ ever since I was born. Overwhelmed by the variety of options, combined with a high level of curiosity and drive, I’ve wanted to do and have everything. As a consequence, multidisciplinarity became the one big constant in my life, and it continues to be. My vision is to become one of the leading national avantgarde artists of Generation Y, with international recognition. I have my base in Germany, feel European and I’m 25.
Having the opportunity to experiment with all kind of painting material from my father, who was a graduated artist and designer, and to benefit from his knowledge about the manifestations of aesthetics, I started my creative work at the age of 11. In the next years, experiments in design and art followed. Since 2011, my focus is on progressive mixed-media painting. Driven by the desire to create innovative artworks and to develop my very own techniques, I’ve been working and experimenting with all kind of different media. I’ve been applying classic material like acrylic paint, oil crayon and oil paint on paper, canvas or plexiglass. I started to experiment with all kind of collage techniques at a very early stage. At a certain point, I was expanding my portfolio to everyday items like clothing, printer and computer. The technical and aesthetic potential of digital advices and the internet, increasingly become my main interest. Transforming data into a new form of painting is the current focus of my work. Intuition, targeted manipulation and exploitation of everyday resources stand at the heart of my creative process.
My works are between the poles of analogism and digitalism, aesthetics and project statement, minimalism and exaggeration, intuitive and analytical working, contradiction and consistency. My works are mainly focusing on topics from Generation Y. Self-perception and public image, internet(-revolution), modern relationship and family structures, complexity of daily life and urbanity, aesthetics, health, fitness and modern working life are among the topics represented in my work. Also references to different art streams and masters of painting can be found. Currently, I’m interested in the positions of Christian Rex van Minnen, Ry David Bradley, Austin Lee, David Ostrowski, Jason Gringler, Laura Owens, Isa Genzken, Seth Price, Michael Krebber or Anders Clausen, just to name a few.
