Artwork description

In this surrealist-esque image, a thick black pipe depicted as if made of a malleable material such as silicone twists and turns in a very neat pile through the center of the painting. The muted colours of the background with the rust-red and beige provide a subtle base to allow the jet black central object to contrast with. The added tuft of grass growing in the sand-colored foreground adds a flash of bright green to the muted tones painting.

Fortune Hunter

Born in Germany and raised in Bolivia, Fortune Hunter is a self-taught artist with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. Exhibiting works in southern and central Germany, his work is currently focused on the human condition in relation to pop culture and the natural world through the lens of the subconscious. Describing his method of production, the artist often makes a reference drawing before creating the final painting. During the process, he may use cutouts to create certain patterns and then create an underpainting using acrylic paint. On top of this, he adds oil paint to create the finished color and texture. Inspired by everyday items that appeal to the human subconscious on a deeper level, Fortune Hunter’s works have, as described by the artist, a funny, surreal, and hidden quality that makes them unique.
