Max Grimm and Patrick Preller will be at the Art28 stand! Both artist present their works, performe in live paintings and will be there for interviews. The still lifes, heads and figures of Grimm remind on the art work of Friedensreich Hundertwasser, but technique and form is created different. Preller on the other hand creates painted sculptures, happy and cheeky, so as if they are not metal.
The english painter Tim Davies lives and work in Hannover and is well known in the modern pop art scene. He worked also together with other painters and artist, like James Rizzi. His neo-cubistic figures are related to the tradition of the art of Pablo Picasso, George Braques, Franz Marc, Kasimir Malewitsch and Paul Klee. He changes the subject of the pictures in very pride and colorful pop art spaces. Sailors, captains and dandys are popular figures, which appear in lot of paintings.
Max Grimm comes from Magdeburg and is the youngest, experimental painter in the Art28 circle. His mixed technique of scetchings, drawings, prints and paintings create a multiplex world of figures. The queen, the bar tender or the gentleman, all have those characteristic oval heads. Also Grimm uses cubistic elements, but more detailed and filigreed than his ancestors.
The sculptor Patrick Preller transformes pop art into metal sculptures. Colorful painted monsters in different sizes appear on the wall or on the floor. Funny, happy and fresh are the abstract figures and monsters for the garden, public spaces and the interior.
