Roger König

Roger König

Born: 1968

Hometown: Dessau-Rosslau

Based in: Dessau

 

Roger Koenig is an abstract painter who lives and works out of Bauhaus City Dessau. Koenig’s work can be described as ethereal, and attains a level of detail that persuades the viewer to revisit each piece— discovering new secrets each time. Koenig enjoys utilizing older, and more traditional painting techniques; and as an experienced veteran painter, it’s been some time since he’s analyzed the specifics of his motivation. Koenig’s input medium for his work takes on many forms… antique walls, a nice patina, and aged textures which overlap years of existence fascinate him. These attributes which are naturally attained over time are what Koenig attempts to represent within his work. Koenig holds a Master’s Degree in painting from HWK Halle in Germany. After completing his work at HWK he studied at the University of Applied Sciences in Magdegurg. Koenig has been working within his trade since 1991, earning his Master’s Certificate three years later. Continuing to push the boundaries of his medium, Koenig’s work on canvas is innovative and highly experimental. You may view his portfolio on the web at www.rogerkoenig.com and Roger welcomes you to join his community following on Facebook. Less

About Roger König


IconInspires

What inspires you?

I like natural, earthy and warm colors and matte surfaces. I want to radiate peace with my art. The world is very hectic and the internet gives us daily information and stimuli to process. Since a "Resting point" is very important.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

My artworks will take 4-6 weeks to complete. There are many layers of paint applied. The pictures grow like "children" until they grow up. It creates beautiful color gradients. The natural clay color gives the pictures a very special texture, which stands in exciting contrast to the delicate gloss of the acrylic paint. The properties of the clay color allow a more intensive treatment of the surface. I have spent many years trying to find the right composition of colors.
