Hagen Vogel - A Master of Fan Art
Hagen Vogel, born in 1988 in Berlin, reclaims the Fan Art experience and presents it onto a whole different level.
His influences range from the modern internet and gaming scene of the fan or better the ‘follower’ culture as well as all the imagery that accompanies it.
The solo exhibition ‘AGE OF FAN ART’ depicts his contemporary heroes using elaborate oil painting techniques; creatively portraying virtual or fictional characters as sacred figures to be recognised greatly as part of our modern cultural timeline.
The artist places himself somewhere in between high culture and pop art; just as the lines between the two entities seem to continuously be blurred.
The exhibition will take place inside one of Berlin’s most visited attraction’s - The Humboldt Box, a large contemporary structure offering exclusive views of the Berlin Palace Humboldt Forum construction on Museum Island.
