My name is Marcel Herms. I am a self taught artist. My work is about freedom in the first place. There’s a strong link with music. Just like music my art is about autonomy, licentiousness, passion, color and rhythm.
When I paint I use everything I can get my hands on: acrylic paint, oil paint, ink, pencils, crayons, spraycans etc. Sometimes I mix the paint with sand, sawdust or pieces of paper. I paint on canvas and paper and sometimes other materials like wood.
I work in different sizes: from very small to real big and I don’t limit myself to one medium. I draw, I paint, I make 3-dimensional objects and artist books (and audio art)
My work was printed in many (inter-)national publications (like Inside Artzine, Proper Gander, Bananafish and many more) and I designed a lot of record- and CD-covers. I collaborated with many different visual artists and audio artists from around the world.
