Jonas Lipps

This exhibition is the German artist Jonas Lipps, (b. 1979, Freiburg, Germany) first presentation in Sweden. Lipps is a recognized and established painter in Germany and the US. He lives and works in Berlin, and has exhibited at Tokyo Arts and Space Hongo in
Tokyo, Select in Berlin and The Duck, NYC, New York. Lipp's expression is an incredible mix of the artist's very own view of a pseudo-hyperrealism which he opposes with a playful, almost naive cartoon-esque aesthetics, filled with pop art references, which sets the painting, as a medium, on its tip. Lipps a true painter, both in his skilled craft and the subtle comments on today's society, his references and his own thoughts as he communicates with his creations.
