römer + römer



A long time ago I minored in Art History. I had a thing for impressionism… do you see where this is going? I totally thought these were grainy photos when I first saw them, but on closer inspection I realized that these Japanese fashionistas, and those Korean school kids playing in the waves were made entirely of small dabs of paint. Stunning! They are the work of  two Berlin based artists {who happen to be married} known as Römer + Römer.  Torsten and Nina Römer work together to create these gorgeous, HUGE {78″x105″ in some cases!} modern-day impressionistic work. Yep, I have a thing for these too.

{They currently have a show up at Freight & Volume in New York – it runs until April 26, 2014}

    This is really neat – it’s like a pixelated and modern take on pointillism. I think I have a thing for them now, as well.

    There also seems to be a screen print aspect to the work. Very cool.

    wow wow WOW! you always find the most fabulous things. Love this hybrid of pixelation and lo-tech, high-skill painting!
