This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Martin Kobe, from Germany, is a painter of dynamic symmetry, vivid colors and intersecting lines focused on modernist architecture and virtual spaces. 

. . ."with each painting, the overall hues are restricted, either a tight range of deep reds, silver blues or acid greens that enhance the emptiness in the work: utopia devoid of the mess of the everyday."

He creates his paintings with multi layers of paint, and using masking tape for sectioning, builds up rich colour blocks, which results in an overall effect of collage. "The buildings are sometimes unfinished, without roofs or walls, and support structures appear more like scaffolds for the picture itself. Kobe uses different methods of painting within the picture plane, ranging from a perfectly smooth, flat application, to an expressive handling of the paint where it appears as if it has been dragged or squeezed onto the surface. These more indistinct areas introduce an element of human error, a kind of elapse and an entry point for the viewer."
