- Artists of the exhibition
Roman Klonek is known to be of the leading artists in the German graphic arts scene. As a student he worked on his first wood cut and can't get off it ever since. His humorous prints depict colourful, imaginary landscapes filled with bizarre characters. Exotic letterings all over the image arouse even more questions instead of helping us to decipher the unusual scenes. By now Klonek has created his very own fancyful cosmos of odd creatures all being inspired by the Eastern European cartoons of his childhood.
All-round artist Jim Avignon is internationally renowned as a painter, musician, performance-artist and writer. His naive cartoon style is deceiving - with a touch of irony he questions our capitalistic globalised world. His fast and low priced mass production sabotages the strategies of the art market and disapproves of financial speculation. Although Avignon is long since considered an iconic figure in the Berlin art- and music scene he still manages to cross the boundaries of mainstream and underground.
