Ed Baga

Ed Baga, who is participating in Remix 2 as a guest artist, presents four works that are conceived as stand-ups and which will be placed on the pavement in front of the gallery for the duration of the exhibition. They are based on various photo templates from past openings of the Emde Gallery.
Ed Baga always paints from photographs, often from banal photographs of real life. With an enlightening wit and a feel for the "little" things in everyday life, his paintings capture pointed situations, mostly people interacting socially: People on the beach, on their mobile phones or reading, rowing, dancing or listening to music - common motifs and simple subjects that require no effort to decipher. He uses a specific painting technique that is characterised by a gestural, pastose application of paint and bright colours, executed with quick but precise strokes. Thanks to coarse painting surfaces, runny drips and a slight distortion of body parts and facial features, the photographic models and the people depicted lose their innocence and take on something stereotypical, superficial and unmasking in the paintings.

Ed Baga studied graphic design in Wiesbaden. Since 1995 he has been working as a freelance artist and illustrator. He lives and works in Oestrich-Winkel and Wiesbaden.
