Katharina Grosse – Paintings on canvases, not on styrofoam



Katharina Grosse (1961) is famous for her innovative painting style that is heavily inspired by graffiti and conceptual art. She usually uses an industrial spray paint gun to cover everything from mud hills, found objects to abstract forms made from wood, plastic, and styrofoam, and often includes the walls and ceilings of the art space.

In her show Can You Spell Mixing at Istanbul she is showing a less known side of her work: paintings on canvas made between 2009 and 2011.
