‘Walla ist ein braver Adolfe’, park bench tabletop

Walla, August

‘Walla ist ein braver Adolfe’, park bench tabletop.

Walla painted, drew, etched, constructed objects from discarded recycled materials, wrote and took photographs to record his work, in a constant creative outpouring.

In his powerful paintings, images of animals and people, together with religious, political and sexual symbols, are crammed together to fill the picture. Woven among or on top of his symbols and images are pieces of text, often in different languages, revealing his obsession with words. He also painted his images on the exterior walls of the Haus der Künstler and placed objects around a small garden building, leaving them to decay, forming an organic, constantly changing environment.
