FIGURENKNÄUELSz – HOWTOKILLAGRAFFITI
Solo show from 9.04.2021 until 25.04.2021
We are happy to invite you to our first solo exhibition in 2021 of Berlin painter Howtokillagraffiti.
Having returned from Songzhuang, an art colony in China, where Howtokillagraffiti has been intensively working on practicing oil painting for six years, he now presents his newest works at “Figurenknäuelsz” – realized in his studio in 2020 and during his residency at Retramp Gallery in 2021; conceptualizing the themes of Body, Mind, and Machine. Sometimes figurative, sometimes abstract, Howtokillagraffiti’s works do not care about representing the real, the visible or a clear-cut narrative through color, but about human existence and the expression of emotions which are placed above the intellect.
Howtokillagraffiti works intuitively and has taken upon himself to bring the essence of his large-format, outdoor “Graffpainting” to the canvas. Using a mixed technique of oil paint and spray-paint on linen, the artist creates a unique imagery, conglomerating in fascinating “balls of figures” which take the viewer into a poetic world of surrealism and subconsciousness. Their strong expressionist vein will certainly not leave you untouched.
