Mathis Rekowski is a German self-taught artist, illustrator and designer, who surfaces from the miasma of life to create highly intricate compositions that meld collage and digital elements into a technicolor cacophony. He thickens pieces together – familiar shapes, patterns, and pop culture references, to create his highly detailed work. Rekowski’s designs somehow seem chaotic but well controlled. Rekowski’s psychedelic mashups have seen him commissioned by Mercedes, Big Issue, Saatchi & Saatchi and Wired amongst many other high ranking clients.
Based in Berlin with a background in advertising and film production, Mathis has a unique and very fresh style of illustration. Inspiration for his work Rekowski draws from its surroundings. A keen photographer, his acute creative eye comes up with intricately composed compositions, often a mixture between collaged and digital elements.
Mathis Rekowski lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
