Some of the most culturally influential artists of the past century have been the source of inspiration for this colour experiment. I started out by manually illustrating the most famous portrait of the respective artist on my iPad; then I transformed every line into a square and gave it a different colour. The result are squeaking colour patterns yielding in abstract, form-libre versions of the initial picture – a chaotic tribute to the colourfulness of the artist himself.
I have this thing with huge empty walls; to me they are like a massive blank canvas waiting to be transformed into a piece of art. One of my recent projects – „Young Romans“ (a series of portraits of people I know and love) – would lend itself especially well to such an endeavour, if I may say so. Original: oil crayon on cartridge paper, 321 x 455 mm.
