"Humanity has arrived at the uncontrollable chaos of mechanization, consumption and speed. Therefore decay; dirt and damage become the observable products of a technically overloaded information and industrial society."
Kim Köster was born and raised in the North German village of Worpswede. This ‘Art Colony’, enriched with an enduring influence of Art Nouveau was also the home to countless notable Impressionists and Expressionists. After beginning with drawings and watercolours as his first works, Köster entered the global street art arena and graffiti scene, traveling across Europe, Australia, Canada, South America and ultimately experimenting with and developing a new and unique art form.
The works are a combination of sundry materials and artistic inspiration, a fusion of reality and fiction. The extemporaneous search for these aesthetics creates a cavalierly composition in Köster’s works, free from the conventions of mainstream.
