Michael Fischer - Art
This guy has a dream of painting the world - with naivistic, colourful figures. He calls them icons, pictures of people we would like to meet. The exhibition showed photos of his projects of covering buildings with his art, some fragment of this cover, paintings, and large portraits. Entering the main room of the gallery was like entering a world of strange figures, an explosion of colours. The photos of decorated buildings were great, where boring or uninteresting buildings got a totally new face. The portraits of persons like Michael Jackson, Dalai Lama, Pope John Paul, Marilyn Monroe, Sitting Bull, made me think: "What the ...?" Why were these persons chosen? Why are they portrayed like this, all in the same style, very basic, almost like ... icons? So that is it? It is some modern kind of popart?
I consider the exhibition as "nice", and parts of it interesting, but as a whole it only briefly touched me.
