Hi, I'm Katrin Kübler-Xanthopulos,

graphic designer, artist 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 colors of the seasons, nature, the mountains and the sea, interesting design and architecture,  old castles and palaces, a visit to all kinds of museums, incidents from life, but deepest by my faith in Yeshua.

 

With my works I want to bring beauty, inspiration, joy, hope and a positive atmosphere into every house and into the world. With my art, I would like 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.
