Christian Boehmer (Germany)

International Artist

Christian Boehmer is a self taught artist, who 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 artwork is shown by Galleries in Switzerland, England, the Netherlands and of course, Germany. He has showed his work in several art fairs such as Bloom Art Fair, Stroke and Art Basel Miami.

Painting paper bags as heads has become Christian’s central topic and is a critical comment on contemporary social phenomenons. It underlines the contradiction between wanting to be hidden and anonymous and wanting to be the centre of attention. The paper bag itself operates as a picture in the picture and transports a deeper level of message.

Artist Statement

“I try to portray people of various backgrounds, who are able to remain anonymous through wearing the paper bags over their heads. The people are alienated even more through the customization of the paper bags in each of my artworks.”
