Artworks by Jonathan Meese at Galerie Thomas

A man, his art and many critics

Jonathan Meese at Pinakohek of Modernism and at Galerie Thomas

Jonathan Meese is a case of divisive spirits: "Meese is about the total disempowerment of myths, secrets and symbols through a pictorial and linguistic overkill," says art historian Ralph Melcher. "In his works, the mystified heroes of history encounter the great criminals and their symbols, which are confronted by comic language and Dadaist senselessness." Some art historians even see the German artist, who was born in Tokyo in 1970, in the tradition of the painting style of the German Expressionists.

If you would like to take home a "real" Meese after a visit to the current exhibition at Pinakothek der Moderne, you will find some works by this exceptional artist in our gallery just across the street.
