Latest paintings by Roland Schwarz ("Kumoki")


Guardian Angel
by Kumoki

On-Line Gallery Available

German artist Roland Schwarz (known universally as "Kumoki") has been painting since the end of the seventies.

In a protected environment and with the mutability of a chameleon, he has immersed himself in his subjects and the technical challenges that inspired him. The male form is, has, and still does, remain the main focus of his work. His single colour palette emphasises the shape and form of naked bodies, and his technique has been described as an "internet" fusion of Peter Paul Rubens and Tom of Finland.

He strives to find the formula for eternal beauty, and the monochrome style of his paintings serves aesthetically to distance the viewer from the nakedness represented.

Roland Schwarz has been resident in Gran Canaria since 1997. He has had exhibitions of his work in Norway, Spain, France and Germany. This is his first exhibition in London.

ABSTRACT ART
“The abstract, especially in those rough sketches, is very important to me, perhaps because of my advertising background, where layout is so important. Sometimes those first few lines cut the paper into such satisfying shapes that I don’t want to go on, but I always do, adding nostrils and nipples and bootstraps until I have filled the paper up as usual.” — Tom of Finland
