Nice of you to drop in
Hi, I'm Katrin Kübler-Xanthopulos,
artist, graphic designer and the creative mind behind artWERK. I am an abstract expressionist and work with mixed media in acrylic. My favorite tools are spatula and painting knife and I like strong vibrant colors. If you want to know more about me, my way of working and what inspires me, then just read on here.
Since my early childhood I have been fascinated by colors, shapes and all kinds of creative experimentation. I professionalized my passion for color and design with an apprenticeship as a visual marketing designer, A-levels in design and two semesters of art therapy. I successfully completed my studies as a graduate social worker/social pedagogue.
I specialised in acrylic painting more than 20 years ago, as they are very much in line with my joy of experimentation and abstract expression. On canvas, I prefer to work with mixed techniques of pigments, paints, putty, structural paste, gel, sand, paper, gold leaf and so on.
With a lot of passion, commitment and skill, I create high quality and unique artworks. I love working in layers while spackling many layers of intense vibrant colors on top of each other with the palette knife or painting knife. As a result, in one painting there are often several works hidden behind the visible, which gives the painting a deeper expression.
I am inspired by the color changes of the seasons, the creation, the mountains and the sea, stylish design and architecture, old castles, visiting all kinds of museums, incidents from everyday life, but deeply by the Book of Books and the King of Kings.
With my works I want to spread beauty, joy, light, hope and inspiration and positively change the atmosphere. With my art, I want to bring people (again) in connection with the eternal.
If you have project inquiries or would like to purchase one of my works, then I look forward to hearing from you. Please also feel free to visit my shop. A nice selection of my paintings can also be found in the gallery.
