The Krank (Greece, 1988) is a Berlin-based urban artist focusing on typography and abstract expressionism.
The Krank has a distinct and strong Berliner aesthetic portraying deep messages which take over space by creating a unique and dynamic art installation both indoors and outdoors. The Krank hides stories and messages in his works that speak about his worldview. “My stories are written in a very deep visual language that reflects the impact of contemporary life in human psychology and in the wider society.”
He combines in the same space and time the conscious, using the written speech, with the unconscious, through the abstract expressionism. Behind the written content there is a series of collaborating links that encrypt the message and are intended for a deeper interpretation. This continuous process is complemented by gestures, manifesting glibly in his artwork his personal feelings, creating parallel narrative expressions and conceivable horizons.
His ideology revolves around conscience and humanity. Through his projects, he tries to develop an ethical state within the complex structure of modern life, aiming at a deeper understanding of the substantive. It is his duty to capture in his art the most sincere interpretation of the world by opening up a dialogue for alternative visions.
