participated in various research workshops, cultural events,
and experienced enormous success
within his artistic works. Heralded by the art-critics as
POP'ART ARTIST very nouveau-genre, KATCH's works are more
than simple compositions executed to excel the highest level
in GRAPHIC DESIGN. Keenly identifiable as optical aphorisms,
each piece exposes confrontational values, by transforming
common objects, into intelligible messages rich in sarcasm
and iconoclastic tones. By creating a visual synthesis charged
with subtle humour, KATCH's inquisitive eye, transforms pictographic
elements with plenty of daring and harmony, into pure ART.
Since the colours selections are applied from the palette
offered by the manufacturer, the perfect HARD-EDGE*execution
of KATCH's acrylics on canvas, emulates silk-screen printing.
Plexiglas, glass and mirror panels are other media often used
to support collages of three-dimensional objects in conjunction
with neon tubing as an interactive element. Executed in variable
styles, KATCH's trademark hearts are present in many of his
compositions with roles that seem to reflect the struggle
of humanity, in placing materialism against idealized love.
Finally, the graphic element in KATCH's work is often complemented
by written idiomatic expressions that bring voice to the visual
aspect of the composition creating a direct and witty dialog
with the viewer who can read between the lines.
Cynical yet hopeful, KATCH sagacious symbolism, stands as
an ongoing commentary facing our society and forces us to
reflect about the false values confronting the human spirit.
