With "Impressions of Frankfurt" an unusual painting exhibition opens its doors in the Gallery of the "Friends of Frankfurt." Artist Marc Remus (born 1969 in Sachsenhausen) presents remarkable perspectives of well-known Frankfurt landmarks.
He presents complete new views of the famous and historical Frankfurt architecture through powerful color usage and a technique he developed over years, using acrylics, watercolors in combination with tea, coffee and tea blossoms.
What stands out besides the love for detail is his stylistic accuracy and the ability to combine images, lettering and graphical icons each time anew without ever becoming boring.
This can be seen in the paintings "The Old Opera," "the Cathedral," "the Stock market," as well as the gallery of the "Friends of Frankfurt," the oldest half-timbered house of the city.
Marc Remus who has exhibited already in Hamburg, Helsinki, and the U.S. traveled around the globe lead by his desire for knowledge and his interest to expose his art ideas to new influences.
He graduated from School for Creative and Performing Arts in Cincinnati/Ohio, became a business translator for English and Spanish, studied Japanese Art in Tokyo and got his B.A. in illustrations at renowned Art Center College of Design in L.A.
In the mid-90s he became a student of pre-Columbian art and archaeology at a school in Central-American Honduras.
The exhibit will open Friday, October 18th at 6pm in the gallery of the "Friends of Frankfurt."
The paintings can be seen until Tuesday, November 5th, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from 2-5pm. For more information call 615918
