ARTIST OF THE GALLERY
Renowned as the „quickest painter of the world“ Jim Avignon travels around the globe, enthusing his ever growing following with his pop-artsy works, actions and music. With his amusing to melancholic themes he captures the zeitgeist of today's fast-paced lifestyle. Jim Avignon creates his art in the moment and takes place where he is. He is fast, direct and dynamic. In his visual language he tells stories, asks questions and makes comments on political matters, reflecting the facets of life in contemporary society. After living in New York for many years, he has now returned to Berlin.
