Works by Michel Friess - German Pop Art
MICHEL FRIESS was born in 1970 in Neustadt an der Weinstrasse in Germany.
Already in his earliest youth, he was attracted to the street art and was later able to make a name for many prominent figures under his label "GERMAN POP ART".
After many study trips to the American artists' workshops of New York and Las Vegas, the pop art captivated him completely.
His works were quickly awarded with art awards at various exhibitions and are represented in many well-known galleries.
In April 2013, his work "Berliner Dom" appeared on the title page of the art magazin # 1:
Each work is produced by Michel Friess on request and individually in his loft studio in Kaiserslautern - a former filing factory from the 1950s. The spirit and flair of his almost legendary workplace is reflected in many of his works and motifs. Many famous personalities already visited him there.
The artist attaches importance to complete handwork. His unique works are mainly made in hand screen, each individual screen being himself made of wood and handpainted. A very elaborate method since more than 20 different screens are used per image.
With his mixed technique of hand-print, painting, airbrush with spray cans and paper collages, works are created in which the dedication and attention to detail are clearly visible and perceptible in each of his works. That Michel Friess loves what he does is unmistakable - a clear manuscript.
