Author(s): Stefan Marx
Playful text-image works from the popular artist and illustrator Stefan MarxOver the past 20 years, the German contemporary artist, skateboarder and illustrator Stefan Marx (born 1979) has been translating lines from songs, popular sayings and quotations into paintings or drawings on two-dimensional surfaces--interpreting phrases such as "I guess I shouldn't be telling you," "funny how I find myself in love with you," "this is so not what I wanted," and others abstracted to the point of illegibility. These pieces may be realized in an edition, a unique work, as a mural in a house or as a small invitation card. Schriftbilder / Type Works is the first volume compiling these pieces in all mediums. Essays explain Marx's drawing, printmaking and painting techniques, as well as his unique interplay of art and pop culture.
