Martin Gerstenberger Artist Bio:
Born 1981 in Landshut Germany I started my way into art as a teenager who fell in love with street art and soon was able to do big murals with well known people like os gemeos and flying fortress. In my recent work I try to combine elements of Street Art and Naive Art/ Outsider Art with traditional ways of painting or sculpturing as well as using its subjects or copied elements.This way I am experimenting with the different energy and history of the individual art forms and the possibility to combine it. Like the modern way of living and especially the capitalistic way of life absorbs all rude and natural forms of living, my work shall reflect this in an ironic way. My pictorial narrative technique is that of the stream of consciousness - protagonists, landscapes and motifs arisen from the stream of consciousness, are cut out of their larger context and intertwined in free association with new content and figures. And yet, follow the pictures a clear intention and statement: they offer the viewer familiar shreds of collective memory and embed it in a carefully staged design from the strangest landscapes, situations and constellations. The viewer opens up a wondrous universe of styles, time frames, social developments: often seemingly naive, sometimes expressive, sometimes wild - as fantastic as castles in the air in the forest of thoughts, and yet extremely precise in the architecture. In its wild mix of levels of meaning, details and contexts it includes the riddle and its solution at the same time. Behind often humorous, ironic titles hides such as behind the image plane itself a reflexive attitude towards the old questions of mankind or social constructs.
