To peek inside an artist’s studio is to get a glimpse into their mind and world of ideas. How rewarding then to wander inside the Bangkok workplace of the artist, Christian Develter. The color, light and powerful images that overwhelmed me when I first walked in, are very much in evidence. Amidst the seeming chaos of hues, the large expanses of red and the finely detailed drawings, there is a muscularity of will and purpose. Don’t allow the myriad items to cloud your view, here is an artist with focus, completely devoted to bringing his interior visions to the world.
This maximalist approach is essential in the creative process, and is tantamount to world creation. Clearly a vibrant atmosphere such as this bears fruit.
The main takeaway has to be the masterful use of color.
Lingering over the small details and quirky inventions, such as the oil-can turned washbasin, one can find so many things to “try at home.” The main takeaway has to be the masterful use of color and the seemingly happenstance juxtaposition of elements. What is happy accident, and what simply happens by design? Only the artist can tell.
Soak up the atmosphere and throw some colors around your room. It’s a start.
The small details mean so much.
Altered viewpoints conjure unexpected meanings.
Here’s to incredible creativity.
