This is one of 20 Individually created original artworks I released with the recent Saatchi NFT project around Vincent Van Gogh. Each work is created in the typical way I work in my studio. Each of the pieces is unique, will not be available as a print, is signed and stamped on the back and comes with a certificate of authenticity. It’s been such an honour to be one of the selected artists to participate in this awesome project. Congratulations to all the buyers of these originals, keep them, you won’t regret it. And here’s a bit more information about my usual way of creating: Manuela Karin Knaut’s painterly work reflects the enthusiasm of the artist for travel, the discovery of new terrain and the inevitable leaving of her own comfort zone. The often harsh reality on the streets of Johannesburg, the to German eyes unexpectedly chaotic and disorderly-seeming life in the townships, the colourful variety in the narrow alleys of Accra, the unvarnished, broken walls, the graffiti of the street artists of Brooklyn, the uninhibited, real life and action in the most diverse corners of the world: it is the brokenness, the charmingly imperfect, the frequently temporary-seeming that fascinates Manuela Karin Knaut, and which she imbues into her pictorial language and the primary idea of her location-specific and large format installations. It is the rough edges and ends of life far away from the centre, far from the average safety and comfort. The artist consciously seeks out these confrontations with barriers and the edges of society. Knaut expresses this restlessness, this almost childish, unprepossessing curiosity and adventurousness in her works. Her paintings are balancing acts of colour, form and line, surface and space, abstraction and figurativeness, image and text. Individual areas of colour are put down with strong paint marks and then worked over and over. A variety of more or less defined objects keep being woven into the painterly process. Everyday objects straight from life are contoured with line, or painted over, or revealed again. 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. Next the works are hung on a plain white presentation wall, checked again and again and finally signed. At this moment a strange peace captures the usually pulsating studio space. Time, peace and space for observers, for their own stories and an invitation to let the thoughts wander and find one’s own place in the colourful world of Manuela Karin Knaut.

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.
