Felix Gephart Illustrations
February 15, 2010 in Illustration
33 years old draftsman Felix Gephart works in Berlin, New York and China. His large-sized ink drawings as well as Gouache paintings are often inspired by literature. Another body of his work are up to 600 square-feet murals that seem like gigantic wood-cuts.
Gephart draws inspiration from fantastic realism, satiric imagery, culture jamming, asian ink-painting, Pop Art and Graffiti. His text-inspired works focus on the hidden motifs of his characters, but also sample the pleasure of tragic humor as a consequence of human adaption and mainstream.
Felix Gephart received a Fulbright grant and graduated with an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York.
His work has been internationally featured amongst others by Novum, DIE ZEIT, Illusive, Graphische Kunst, Empty magazine, Dpi magazine, Playboy magazine and Esquire magazine. In October 2009, 80 drawings were shown on the occasion of his solo show at the A. Paul Weber Museum, Ratzeburg.
