Sin Sin Fine Art is delighted to present the solo exhibition of a Contemporary German artist, Tilo Kaiser, held from 10 November to 2 December. The exhibition will feature a collection of the artist’s most recent “visual poems”, colourful on canvases, culturally diverse, challenging in all senses and full of hidden suggestive messages.
Tilo Kaiser is a collagist, a multi-media artist and a collector of images with an inherent love to the drawn line. Born and raised in post-war Germany, Tilo’s art has been influenced as much by German art movements as by Pop Art, Abstract Expressionism, Pattern Painting, Computer Games, Comic Drawing and Graffiti. Surrounded by the universal icons of popular culture from MAD to Mickey Mouse, advertising illustrations of all sorts and Hollywood movies, he has adopted these fast and ever changing influences of colours, images, contents and styles, and combined them with painterly traditions to his series of “painted drawings” and multimedia collages.
In his series of “painted drawings”, Tilo uses multi-colour crayons to draft doodled fragments of imagery borrowed from all corners of life. What seems random is meticulously planned. Afterwards, he paints around these crayon lines sparing them from the massive colour of “background”.
Regardless of time and space, he creates swiftly executed and colourful drawings consisting of abstract shapes, figurative elements and fragments there of. Tilo draws all the time, everywhere he goes and on almost any form and shape of paper found.
His multimedia collage works show a repeating rhythm of collage and painting. He juxtaposes drawings, layer after layer onto canvases in a procedure that reverses the process of paper-making; thus he constructs his paintings from fragments of paper, newsprint and tissue-paper of all origins that combined with painted elements ranging from gouache to spray-paint and from pencils to oil-sticks.
"The images themselves are exotic and exciting… but try to find meaningful context here… you are lost… they are a visual hymn against the belief that things can be categorized neatly and orderly." Tilo Kaiser.
