Bio

Kanjo Také With a Japanese father and a German mother, my background has made me equally familiar with two very different cultures. Both of these cultures combine in me to form a cosmos of my own. The mysticism and aesthetic of Japan complement the rational and technological cognitive structure of Europe. My studies in painting and sculpture at the Escuela de Bellas Artes in Granada acquainted me with great Spanish painters such as Zurbarán, Goya and Velázquez . My subsequent studies at the Berlin University of the Arts introduced me to conceptual thinking and the study of photography. I departed from traditional painting and traditional photography, continuing both by other means. My artworks are not to be assigned to the genre of painting, photography or photographic painting. My technique is new and medial; my pictorial concept is the concept of painting. The visible in my work emerges from the invisible through continual experimentation and the transformation of reality. Unknown images come to me in this working process. They arise in my subconscious. Like a deep-sea diver, I retrieve my treasures from a hidden realm. A new and unknown pictorial cosmos emerges before me, reflecting the primordial human. “When the cognition goes, the invisible is there.” – Kanjo Také
