This amazing, vibrant and bold piece of original art comes straight from the artist’s new studio. Various materials such as steel, plastic, spray paint and led lights built this unique street art inspired statement piece. It’s not only a piece of art, a contemporary sculpture, it’s also an everyday object which can be used as a bright source of light. After years of working and living in Johannesburg, South Africa, German born and raised Manuela Knaut is continuing her international art career in both Germany and South Africa. Manuela Karin Knaut’s paintings can be compared to a balancing act between colour, shape and line, surface and space, abstraction and object, image and writing. The individual, coloured surfaces are applied to the canvas with strong brush strokes and are continuously worked over. Integrated into the process of painting, are more or less defined objects, everyday utensils from the thick of life, which are sometimes contoured in a linear manner or depicted flat, painted over or partially exposed. In her artworks, the artist combines an enormous variety of materials and with this approach stays true to her style of art in an unafraid manner, which she realizes over and over in large room installations. She uses collage, strings, staples, alters sewed objects she found, on or inside her world of images. There is spraying involved and complementing with silk-screen printing. In Knaut’s colour-intensive imagery world, you can find similar layering, stapling and combining in the same way as with her room objects. The confrontation with and combination of painting and working with different materials on canvas leads inevitably to a journey of discovery into the playful-sensual and most of all energy-laden artistic world of Manuela Karin Knaut, which leaves much room for one’s own stories, inviting thoughts to roam.

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.
