Remix, oil on canvas, Munich/Vienna, 2010/11

Colliding historical paintings with a contemporary visual culture was the initial idea of a series dating back to the year 2005. The art-historical background provides information for a typographic intervetion, based on POP and the culture of remix. Murder can be seen in the picture of David holding the head of Goliath, also its painter Caravaggio was exiled for the same verdict and in this artwork the tragedy is ironically subverted by a commercial logo of a tabaco brand.
