This is one of the latest artworks on raw canvas fresh from the studio. It reminds very much of the graffiti walls in Brooklyn, New York. The artist combines a great variety of materials in her paintings, true to the work style inspired by elements of street art scenes. She glues paper waste, images, photos, fabric pieces or bits of text onto her paintings, ties, rips, glues, sews or nails found objects onto or into her image worlds. She adds, reduces, scrapes, rips, rubs – no painting is treated like a raw egg. Life is frequently chaotic in Manuela Knaut’s generous studio and integrated print workshop. The artist works in four rooms on a variety of works concurrently, some hang on the walls, some wait in the drying rack for the next phase of work, others lean up somewhere or just lie on the floor. Here a layer of concrete is drying, there preparations for screen printing take form. In another place a base coat, a varnish, a glue or spray is applied. Still in all the chaos there is never any doubt about the moment when a painting is ‘finished’, when the story of that painting has been told. In the same clear and seemingly spontaneous way in which the first layers of paint have found their way onto the canvas, she is just as definitive about the point at which the work is finished. Sometimes after 15 minutes, sometimes after days or even weeks.

Manuela Karin Knaut, born in 1970, is an independent artist currently living in Braunschweig, Germany. She acquired a Master of Arts in Fine Art (installation art) at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. She has been a member of many prestigious and international art alliances such as the Bund Bildender Künstler (German Association of Visual Artists), the Association Internationale des Arts Plastiques, The Visual Arts Network of South Africa (VANSA) as well as the International Womens Association. Since 1990 Knaut‘ s work has been shown internationally in numerous exhibitions and art fairs in countries all over the globe such as South Africa, Ghana, Switzerland, Denmark, UK, Austria, USA, Israel and Kirghistan. Her works are part of notable private and public collections across all five continents. Knaut´s works can best be described as constant discovery and seeking of the unknown. Whether that is on the streets, in exchange with other creators or online- her inspiration stems from everyday life and people. Knaut plays with contrasts, restlessness and the wild, chaos and peace, abstraction and figurativeness. She incorporates many different styles, media and techniques such as silk screen print, acrylics, graffiti, oils and ink. Her works are made on wood, canvas, stone, concrete, cardboard and paper. Her works have a very high recognition level as they circle around similar motives and styles but never stay the same either, since she enjoys venturing on new terrain, such as her latest NFT project.
