The works of the artist, who was born in Berlin in 1978, impress with their color intensity, energy and rhythm. Carried by a lightness, Awe combines colors and shapes and creates a moment of freedom and joie de vivre for the viewer.

Influenced by his teachers Georg Baselitz and Daniel Richter, Christian Awes painting is also influenced by a wide range of artistic styles. Traces of American Abstract Expressionism, tachistic or informal color structures flow into his compositions. Abstracted forms imply a particular degree of movement that literally pushes out of the picture and makes its surface tactile. Streams of color, powerful splashes and spontaneous gestures cover the layers below and form an exciting symbiosis in a dialogue of spontaneity, experiment and artistic calculation.

Different levels, which at first glance appeal to the senses, but on closer inspection allow you to see and feel much more and always new things, give Christian Awe's works a rhythm and depth of space that is typical for them.

Whether on canvas or paper - Awe's complex works fascinate with their radiance and their finely nuanced liveliness. They unite to form poetically pulsating worlds of color that touch the senses and carry us away into a world of colors and emotions.

Christian Awes' works of art are not only regularly presented in international museum exhibitions, but are also represented, for example, in the collection in the art space of the German Bundestag in Berlin and in the SPM Salsali Private Museum in Dubai.

When I paint, it's like dancing around the canvas.
