German artist Thitz puts a new spin on the tradition of the artist on the Grand Tour: he paints city scenes upon paper bags scavenged in the places he visits. The bags are opened out flat for maximum coverage, and the paintings are executed with acrylics in energetic delineations of bird's-eye views of individual landmarks.
This 55-inch high and 63-inch wide mixed media original painting is created with acrylic paint on top of repurposed shopping bags that have been adhered to the canvas in such a way that the bag handles extend from the sides of the artwork. It is stretched, wired, and ready to hang. The artwork is signed on the front and back. The sides are painted as a continuation of the artwork. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.
Thitz has been working on the subject of Utopia for 12 years. His positive visions of the future are a beacon for a better world. Climate change and pandemics are defeated in Thitz’s artwork. He studied at the National Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart finishing in 1989 and then continued his studies at the Facultad de Bellas Artes Universidad de Barcelona in 1990. He created his first bag paintings in 1987.
