Christian Hinz (KERA), born in Berlin in 1985, has been working on colors, printing techniques and facade designs for more than 15 years.
At the same time KERA always found new impulses through his love for haptic and technically things. Especially the interconnection of working with visual language on the computer and the realization on the wall attract the artist. The playground can never be big enough. This combination of digital design and its transfer onto a big wall or canvas is particularly appealing to the artist.

When looking at his artwork one sees a reflection of his Graphic design studies, his passion for geometric lines and spaces as well as him handling spray cans, wall colour and brushes for years.
Colored surfaces and very individual brush strokes are his trademark. Frequently he goes into the depths, plays with perspective composition and the hint of architecture. The restraint on line and surface moves his works close to the pop art of a Jasper John, Robert Indiana or Frank Stella, also known as Hard Edge Painting.
His artwork is abstract but at the same time spatial. Aesthetics and Graphic arts play an important role together.
