Studio_Portrait_01-1

»Gabe manages to make the most complex arrangement of shapes and clean lines seem effortless, whilst also relentlessly swapping between stroked lines and full weight blocks, versatile to say the least.

His work is not only beautiful, but hints at the concerns of the social climate through his art.« 

Utopia Exhibition

Utopia Munich opened its doors as a location for cultural events in June 2020. The historic building with its spacial architecture is a perfect match for art exhibitions, and Gabe was asked to hold his first solo show there. The result was a lockdown inspired collection of graphic art –from a massive 5 m painting and art prints to apparel and original pieces.

Gabe_Portrait_03

In his figurative scenarios, he reduces his forms to the bare essentials and still tries to address fundamental aspects of human existence. It can be his own inner life and interpersonal, cohesion and conflict or uplift and oppression, which can be felt in the well-thought-out compositions.

»In the implementation, I am currently concerned with a search for inner peace. I try to find it through clarity in the composition and the repetition of the manually built form quality. In the end, I hope that my sentiments during painting will also be felt by the viewer.«

»Painting this mural was such a gratifying experience. Since I didn't prepare any shapes with masking tape but purely painted everything freehand it felt very natural and almost meditative.«

A to Z of Niceness

"At to Z of niceness" was a drawing challenge initiated by Grand Matter at the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdown. The goal was to keep oneself busy and optimistic by creating one artwork for each letter of the alphabet. Every letter defined a word that inspired the artwork.

Trapped

Some digital drawings and a couple of quick character-based graffitis in Venice Beach in 2018. These artworks were part of a loose series called "Trapped" and maybe turned from a personal to a more universal concept during Covid-19 times.
