Moki’s Paintings on Wood

It’s amazing how Moki can layer her paintings onto wood, integrate them seamlessly with the textured grain, and still deliver a solid piece of art. Interestingly, Moki chooses to forgo the use of titles in practically all her works, explaining that she wants viewers to reflect their own personality, without a filter or guide.

Although the German artist considers herself primarily a painter, having graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Hamburg, she also works with photography, animation, sculpture, comics, and illustration. As if that weren’t enough, Moki also runs the independent art space “hinterconti” together with friends, is part of the BeetoBee Collective, a group connecting artists from European and Asian cultures, and has published two books: Wandering Ghost (2011) and How to Disappear (2010).
