An article in the international art magazine CONTEMPORARY IDENTITIES about my work
Author Dr. Emelia Ong, Art Historian writes in the December issue of the international art magazine "Contemporary Identities" about my work.
Dr. Emelia Ong: "Trough a combination of comic book style narrative and pop art aesthetic, Super Pop Boy presents a humourus and provocative look at the world we live in. Using well-known comic characters and icons of popular culture, he leverages on the mass appeal of these symbols to draw attention to how they represent our collective desires, anxieties and hopes.
Discrete icons and concepts are playfully juxtaposed to present a tongue-in-cheeck commentary on the state of society. These larger then life icons magnify the current pulse of urban life along with its struggle to make sense of itself. The use of play as a thematic invite us to view life metaphorically as a fun and exiting game. His works reflect a world where pop culture, technology and mass media meet to offer us entertainment, relief and perhaps some hard truths."

Gallery weekend 2020 Berlin: My favorite exhibition: "Takashi Murakami: Michael Majerus Superflat" in the Michael Majerus Estate. (until 02/2022!)
The Japanese artist Takashi Murakami was heavily inspired by Michel Majerus (German painter) dealing with street and computer culture and became interested in Majerus after he discovered that he was "much more mysterious" than his American colleagues, resulting in the "New Painting Movement" propelled by Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. After Takashi Murakami had only discovered the works of Michel Majerus a few years ago, he devoted himself to this series for three years, which not only shows the foresight of Michel Majerus as an artist, but also how art, especially art of pop and post Pop time is so relevant today. Murakami's work shows how those first flirts with popular culture anticipated and shaped our world today, dominated by brands, slogans, franchise cartoon characters, key opinion leaders, internet memes, and fake news. You can find some photos and impressions here.
Summer holidays on the Côte d'Azur (Nice, Cannes, Antibes)
Summer holidays on the Côte d'Azur. Nice with the fantastic museums (MAMAC (Contemporary Art), Matisse Museum, Chagall Museum), the super warm, clean and smooth sea and great food. Cannes also has great beaches and a little more luxury and hype than Nice. And Antibes of its wild nature, hide small beaches and the famous Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc. You can find some photos and impressions here.
Participation in the exhibition "Anti-Freeze" by London gallery owner Casandra Bowes
25th May - 8th June 2020
Anti- Freeze will launch on the 25th May at
This is an exhibition concept close to my heart- as a gallerist working in the commercial art world for over 5 years, I have long been frustrated with the lack of diversity, inclusivity and transparency of the art world. At Anti-Freeze you will find artists from all walks of life, visible prices (and a range of prices) and an embracing of all things digital.
We are experiencing a moment during which our lives seem frozen in time and held in a field of stasis. We may feel immobilised with fear and anxiety; uncertain of our next move or which direction to take.
Anti-Freeze is a catalyst to create a new state of flow, to overcome stasis, to excite the electromagnetic energy field at the individual and collective level in order to create higher vibrations .

Cornelius Tittel in conversation with Peter Pakesch at the Michel Majerus Estate to coincide with the current exhibition majerus wool warhol ...
Peter Pakesch - curator, museum director, foundation chairperson and long-time creative companion to Michel Majerus - will join editor-in-chief of art magazine BLAU and creative director at Die Welt Cornelius Tittel to share his first-hand experiences with the artist and his career. Pakesch and Majerus initially encountered one another at the 1994 exhibition gemälde at Berlin’s neugerriemschneider, and the two remained close until the artist’s untimely passing in 2002. The talk will explore their friendship and collaboration, and the groundbreaking exhibitions of Majerus’ work that Pakesch has curated over the years: His first institutional exhibition in 1996 at Kunsthalle Basel, the posthumous retrospective Michel Majerus. Installations 92–02 staged at Kunsthaus Graz in 2005 and the Michel Majerus Estate’s current exhibition showcasing works by Michel Majerus (1967–2002), Christopher Wool (*1955) und Andy Warhol (1928–1987). This oral history interview with Peter Pakesch is the inaugural event in a series of conversations with those who were mentors, friends and contemporaries of Michel Majerus.

Group exhibition in the gallery The Ballery / Berlin - You are welcome! (09/2019)
27th September - 2nd October 2019
The Ballery was founded in 2014 by Simon Williams in Berlin-Schöneberg, Germany, to build a community of artists who pursue their own path beyond the mainstream.
The program is wide-ranging and based on the recognition that art, regardless of the medium, is involved in communicating and incorporating new ideas in a global context. Photography, painting, sculpture, textile art, mixed media, performance art, video, literature or music - each medium is seen as part of a global aesthetic work. The gallery therefore sees itself as a venue for creative and social energies. www.theballery.com

Start of a series with abstract concept paintings ...
In addition to the form, I am also always interested in thinking - in addition to design/beauty, I also always love text and meaning. In the new series, I combine the intuitive, abstract and spiritual art direction of Action Painting with texts/meaning/conceptual art. Let's see what happens. :)
