Moritz Green’s mixture of his graffiti roots with graphic and fine art is compelling. His artworks still carry the roots of his urban experiences, but they are no longer directly connected to letters. Instead of letters the artist uses linear, hard-edged and precisely painted shapes that are sometimes interrupted by organic and dynamic forms.
Since his childhood the artist is fascinated with space, planets and orbital spheres. This is a thread that runs through his oeuvre. The concept of his latest works another process of reduction to the very essence: colour, lines and shapes. Even though the artist reduced the artistic language to the essential, his graffiti roots stay connected to his creativity.
„I’m fascinated with space, planets and orbital spheres since I was a kid.“
MORITZ GREEN, 2022.
Moritz Green’s exhibition consists of three different series Off Orbit, Moonrise and River.
He started the River series in 2022. All of the artworks go by the name of a river. The artists himself was born and raised in a city by the river Elbe. The river plays a big role in the identity of the city as well as Germany. Moritz Green has found his own meaning for the river: „For me rivers represent change. And change is life. And life is light. And light is colour.“
Odd, mysterious, dynamic and vibrant. Unarguably, the art works of Moritz Green have an intriguing depth.
