GERMANY: Fantastic artist Peter Blohmann – Decalcomania & Graffiti – Troglodytisch

Patience and rest is the man in person. The elaboration of small details and an eye for the most minimal strokes, which then result in the combination in the big, dragon and zombies. If you admire the painting from far it looks like a peaceful oil painted landscape. If you move closer, you can see the cave entrances and the “troglodytes”. It can still be perceived only as a landscape or only as a mountain. But the way it is drawn is very much in favor of all other interpretations. A mish-mash with colour and imagination, nevertheless as an open play ball for the observer. You can stay in front of these artworks for hours and still find something new.
