Martin Kafes33 Hirth
This year his painting Amethyst was chosen for the collective exhibition called Mindfulness of the New York project named Visionary Projects. In September this year, he presented his new artworks at a Prague solo exhibition called Between the curves. His artistic expression was shaped by the free creative environment of the graffiti scene.
Martin‘s entire work is permeated by the fascination with lines, which he develops into an infinite variety of shapes into an abstract composition. At the beginning of each of his paintings, there is a random blot at first glance, although there is no place on the canvas of coincidence and everything has a fixed order.
Behind every line, rounding or bend and behind every shape is a carefully thought-out concept. The layering of variant lines on an unbounded coloured area can be reconstructed retrospectively, each of the layers is slightly acknowledged, and we, like archaeologists, can uncover their relics.
The complete harmony of organic structures brings a unique, even meditative experience to the viewer standing in front of Martin‘s canvases. At the same time, it stimulates the observer’s imagination and triggers chains of associations. Let us dive into the contemplative world of Martin’s curves together and surround us for a moment by the waves of his new artworks...
