Erik Esso’s (Fulda, 1999) artistic practice challenges the concept of painting by using found objects, metal, concrete, plastic, wood, photography and drawing —everything that can extend a little further the medium. The German artist produces wall—based objects that resemble yet reinterpret the idea of painting while embodying a question and an exclamation mark at once. Esso is currently completing his degree at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and has exhibited at Warbling Collective (London, 2019), Delphian Gallery (London, 2018) and Till Richter Museum (Buggenhagen, 2017). Erik Esso lives and works in Leipzig, Germany
