Michaela Konrad. Science Fiction

Paintings and Prints

MICHAELA KONRAD, born in Graz, lives and works in Vienna and Santa Cruz de Tenerife (ESP). She received her graphic training at the Centro Municipal de Arte Gráfico, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and one year at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna.

MICHAELA KONRAD invites with SCIENCE FICTION to a journey through the pop culture of past decades and future future realities. In series and sequences, visually reminiscent of midcentury comics, vintage game design, science fiction pulp magazines, and past mass culture phenomena, she presents an artistic artistic exploration of the big questions facing humanity. In a time of information and image overload, she strives for clarity and orientation. Thus philosophy and contemporary history become important sources of inspiration for her art, which she playfully incorporates into her work.

Michaela Konrad's work encompasses a broad spectrum of media - preferably painting, offset lithography as well as multimedia installations. And always the idea is the prerequisite and the drawing the basis of her creative work. She paints in the tradition of flat painting, avoiding the artistic gesture. Rather, she strives to reduce the line, the brushstroke and the form to the essential. After brainstorming, researching, and creating preliminary drawings painting becomes a concentrated craft. In various projects, she experiments with new media, creating a combination of digital and traditional drawing. She uses augmented reality to bring her work to life.
