Blog 1- Katharina Grosse

Katharina Grosse Ikon 2002
Reading about Katharina Grosse reminded me a lot of street art that one may often see in NYC. Katharina Grosse paints using spray cans which truly is an art in itself. The first thing that came to my mind when reading about her pieces of arts were, "how could she possibly breathe while she creates her artwork?!" Nonetheless, Katharina Grosse has made many beautiful and vibrant pieces that makes you wonder how she blends the different colors in so well and know what layer each color should be. The art piece above was done by Katharina Grosse and it is seen at the Ikon Gallery. The colors are acrylic and were applied using a spray gun. To me, this art piece looks like giant bursts of organized colors that really light up a room.
