I am a pioneer of the New German Pop Art and I create artworks with „New Teutonic Lightness“ (according to a press report). My inspiration: People on the streets, in the media, my biography, scenes that show everyday normality.
I am a pioneer of the New German Pop Art and I create artworks with „New Teutonic Lightness“ (according to a press report).
My inspiration: People on the streets, in the media, my family, my biography. Sometimes I am fascinated by an original pattern. I mix patterns with figures and shapes. Scenes that show everyday normality, particularly appeal to me. People like you and me are in the foreground. I am focused on the essentials, I show anonymous faces that anyone can fill with their own memories. I see myself in the tradition mainly of the American Pop Art. My greatest impression is the art of Alex Katz, David Hockney and James Rosenquist. The geometry of the hard-edge painting of Ellsworth Kelly and Frank Stella fascinates me. At the present time I understand Pop Art as a response to the current affairs, the Zeitgeist. Pop Art is not dead, more than in the Sixties, people are flooded with advertising, pictures and movies. I see myself as a chronicler of the time in which I live.
