Marko Köppe, collage artist from the north of Germany, loves art, the classic art, like Leonardo da Vinci, Sandro Botticelli, Hieronymus Bosch, the modern classics, like Salvador Dalí, René Magritte, and also modern art like das Bauhaus and all its influence: Kurt Schwitters, Mark Rothko, Giorgio Morandi, Olafur Eliasson, Banksy, and so many more.
Nature, music, and especially life are important influences of inspiration, and together with the famous German proverb: Everything develops in the eyes of the viewer!, he starts to play around with the style, aesthetics, and contrast between pictures—tries to create something different, something new, that hits the eyes and through them the brain, the imagination, fantasy, the viewers’ internal feelings, wishes, and thoughts …
Life is a collage!
I love Virginia Woolf, Kazuo Ishiguro, Dorothy Allison, Jesmyn Ward, George Saunders, Larry Brown, Tim Gautreaux, Clarice Lispector, Kevin Barry, Nick Flynn, Julian Barnes, Jennifer Egan. My Goodreads is in constant chaos. I have stories in places including QWERTY and SmokeLong. I’m in the process of revising a novel. In lieu of flowers, please send good vibes.
