I came across these paintings by German artist Theo Altenberg and were taken by their immense brightness and life. His style is reminiscent of Michael Cina, or perhaps it’s the other way around, or even more likely, they’ve never even heard of each other but do similar work. I love how all the colors mix and swirl together, and the depth and contrast of the colors. These paintings are just a small part of a larger body of work including songwriting, videos and over 40 years of photographs. The guy is definitely a jack of all trades.

    Beautiful. Looks like fabric and/or an oil spill.
