Christian Boehmer

Painter, Germany

Christian Boehmer is a German street and urban artist from Cologne, Germany.
Christian Boehmer is an artist of the urban contemporary art genre, focused on drawing, painting and Graffiti/ Muralism . After a long period working on classical graffiti his work takes a different direction developing into abstracted fine art portraiture combining dynamic and color schemes of graffiti.

His concept is to focus on the human body and especially in gesture and body dynamics. The fact of hiding the human face is for the artist also a critical statement to narcissism, egoism and beauty mania.

EDUCATION

The artist developed his skills self-taught, honing his technique through artistic expression on the streets.
