Felix Gephart: Auf Linie gebracht
”Auf Linie gebracht” (Brought in Line) is the first monograph published about german visual artist Felix Gephart.
Gephart's body of work is hard to categorize: inspired by the ‘Neue Sachlichkeit’ as well as the US underground comics culture (Burns, Crumbs, Spiegelman..), he is a figurative artist, a noted satirical, newspaper & book illustrator, as well as a graffiti writer, whose work is often dark with some steampunk elements à la Kevin O’Neill.
The monograph released by Kettler Verlag presents all the facets of the artist: seemingly literary and old master-like drawings face murals, landscape representations, portraits and surrealist mythological creatures.
