About

Markus Blattmann

Born in Germany, Karlsruhe. Living in London.

Colour is radiant power, energy that influences us in a positive or negative way, whether we are conscious of it or not. The

effect of colour should be experienced and understood not only visually, but psychologically and symbolically as well. (Johannes Itten) My paintings and prints

activate many layers, both on the surface and far below. They are not representational in a narrow sense, create no defined images. Instead, they generate

associations, revive memories and emotions, unfold ideas. What Paul Klee once said in a general sense about abstract art is especially valid here: Abstract art does

not represent that which is visible, it creates visibility.

Education:

Fine Art Painting - Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Germany

MA in Fine Arts Printmaking - University of Brighton, UK

WHAT I DO

Paintings


"Colour is radiant power, energy that influences us in a positive or negative way, whether we are conscious of it or not. The effect of colour should be experienced and understood not only visually, but psychologically and symbolically as well." (Johannes Itten)

(example) I try to use as much colour as possible in each of my paintings. I believe great art makes a viewer think or feel.

Sculptures


(example) Skillfully crafted metal castings, an extension of my Heads artwork.

Aliquam ac dui vel dui vulputate consectetur. Mauris accumsan, massa non consectetur condimentum, diam arcu tristique.

Duis dignissim mi ut laoreet mollis. Nunc id tellus finibus, eleifend

Aliquam erat volutpat. Aenean accumsan id mi nec semper.
