Floppy disks, VHS tapes, polaroids and audio cassettes. As a child growing up in the 80s and 90s this combination played a massive part in how I learned about the world. Favourite films, albums, games and even personal recordings were all stored on there. The whole world was totally reliant on these physical media formats. Now suddenly we are at a time where they are obsolete, replaced by countless intangible data files. As information is released from the physical form it allows personal data and identities to now be revealed and infinitely shared online. At the same time many of us consider individuality and privacy to be more precious than ever. Will humans be forever compatible with our own technology? In my work I want to simply highlight this new movement, as I believe it to be an important cultural and social transition of our time.

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.

I was born in Transylvania in 1962. During my school-years I was taught graphics and painting by some excellent artists. Later on I took private drawing lessons and was more and more attracted towards abstract works. I have been drawing and painting ever since I could hold a pencil in my hand… The field of visual arts I am working in is computer graphics. Through all my paintings – may they be hand drawings, computer graphics, photo manipulations or some combination of all these techniques – I try to use a unique language that shows my personal emotions and visions. My second “love” is creating handcrafted jewelry. It’s fun, how the glass and little beads turn into a unique necklace or pendant.
