Schwarzer Hund mit violettem Hintergrund 2020

150 x 150 cm. Oil on linen. Here is one of the first pieces that introduce my proposal for COCA 2021 3rd Edition. A series of large oilpaintings influenced by the aesthetics, atmosphere and work of the 70’s German fashion photographer Chris Von Wangenheim, that represents the opulent and nihilist mind set of the 70’s jet set, fashion and disco community. In his work he explored sex, violence and danger. There are many parallels and several meeting points in Wangenheim’s world with today’s Berlin (queer) party scene. Both like an actual reflection of the character of this two big cities (New York and Berlin) that I would like to represent through my artwork production.

Carlos‘s main medium is oil on canvas. In his paintings, which can be characterized as expressionistic and consist of portraits, still lifes and landscapes, his interest lies in the ambiguity of identity, playfully questioning the perception of the viewer. He believes in painting as an impulsive and intuitive act in order to create a fresh and direct expression.
