While checking out the Design Days Dubai fair, I got to see some powerful conceptual artwork from painter Katrin Friedriks

I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting her at Design Days Dubai with her young son

and was nice enough to give me one of her few product booklets.

On her work:

"In black and white dominance, artworks are explosive, roaring and unpredictable as in perpetual motion."

”[…] I realize you have the idea of introducing and involving politics in a story through paintings. […] Seeing the way you organize your paintings in sequences or in verses like a discourse, you are at the limit between writing and graphics, painter gesture and semantics; (this is) the limit where you start to read a painting!”
