About Melea Staffhausen

I strive to understand and create understanding of the ever changing world we live in through the medium of different visual imagery. Recurring themes are futuristic as well as forgotten paradises, utopia, work as well as change/processes. Technically I love mixing analogue and digital, old and new, traditional and experimental techniques.

I do commissions and work on independent projects in Berlin and in other places, too :)
