Biographie
“The text in my work is mostly a mix of fractions from books, poems ans lyrics, where I add or subtract some words in order to reach another higher or lower sense. Sometimes it’s just a word flying around the room and all I had to do was catch it.”

Friedrich Kunath, a multidisciplinary artist – painter, draftsman and sculptor – draws his dynamism and inspiration sources from the contemporary world. His multifaceted, incongruous and diverse works are all encompassing citations, collages, recycling and references.
Having received a classical art education, the artist produces unclassifiable artworks between hyperrealism and surreal humour. Whether he borrows the contemporary codes or he is inspired by german romanticism – the feeling of his paintings is sometimes reminiscent of certain works by Caspar David Friedrich – the artist skilfully plays with boundaries, eras, as well as great movements in the history of art. He is also immersed in the pop culture to which he is confronted to by living and working in Los Angeles.
