follow the artist:
Christian Böhmer is an autodidact artist, street artist, portrait painter and illustrator. He began his artistic career at the age of 13 as a traditional graffiti artist (painting his letters on the streets of Mainz and Frankfurt, Germany). Today he is a professional artist working and living in Cologne, Germany. His works are shown by Galleries in Switzerland, England, the Netherlands and of course, Germany. Christian Boehmer´s artwork shows people in the contrast between anonymity and self-expression, between egoism and self-criticism. He portrays people with paperbags instead of heads, which expresses a deeper message going beyond the pure representation itself. The paperbag is a way of self maskerade, a symbol of unifomity and equality and being an undefined mass.
