Carl Kenz

KENZ realizes his Utopian places and thus constructs heterotopias aiming against the controlled and disciplinary society. He realizes this by picking up,uestioning or reversing parts of the current culture and thus critically reflects the planet Earth. His humoristic surrealistic paintings often imply social criticism, which gives us food for thoughts.By using tentacles or his tentacle-izm, the graffiti artist shows new perspectives based on a frightening and disgusting creature. 
A closer look shows that the tentacle is a lovable being. This way not only ideals of beauty are questioned but also prejudices are refuted.It shows the game of existence and appearances, reality and imagination, simulation and its antonym. “Everything you can imagine is real.” (Picasso)
