Christian Augusts work consists in capturing urban changes on canvas. What surrounds him, what he discovers in cityscapes, merges into his paintings. The grey of the house facades is his ground on which the compositions develop processually.
The canvas is heavily edited, painted and washed off again, sanded and repainted. Deep, abstract landscapes evolve, in which the viewer finds his own „visual paths“.
The fact that Christian August’s paintings are based on his past in Street Art and that they are based on painting from the façade onto the canvas is what makes his painting so special. He has a unique handwriting, which allows associations up to digital structures. His work is exemplary for the influence of street art on contemporary painting.
