Christian Boehmer has his roots in the graffiti movement of the late 1990´s,  which is  still a leading part of his colorful and dynamic  style of working.

The basis of his  current period of work is portrait painting, which he  abstracts in his  own unique  way.

Christian Boehmer´s artwork shows people in  the  contrast between anonymity and self-expression, between egoism and self-criticism.

He disclaims the people´s  heads  and uses  paperbags instead,which can carry  or express  a deeper message, that goes beyond the pure  representation itself.

On the one hand, the paperbag itself is the easiest way to self maskerade, but also an abstract way to construct an unifomity, that makes the single person be part of an undefined mass. Although the masses of mankind tries  to underline it´s uniqueness via social media, we alle are  equal.

 

„We wear masks not to hide, but to reveal hidden parts of ourselves“
