Painter

The artist Manzur Kargar was born in Kabul (Afghanistan). His mother is German and his father Afghan, so Kargar grows influenced by both cultures and mentalities. He studies art at the HBK Braunschweig and at the UdK Berlin/Germany. In addition to long-term work stays in Los Angeles and New York, he lives and works in Berlin. With the combination of digital and classic Art, Kargar’s paintings mark the span of painting from the originated emotional base into the inevitable digital age. "I’m not looking for the truth; I’m looking for splendid appearances.” In the last 3 decades he had numerous solo and group exhibitions in art institutions in Europe and the United States and his works are presented in numerous private and public Art collections in Europe and the US.

Manzur Kargar sees the world as it is currently presented in the media - sugarcoated, unreal, dramatic, seductive, frightening, bizarre and glamorous- as our ubiquitous reality. His inspiration comes from glossy magazines, television and the Internet. The artistic exploration of “advanced” civilizations is central to his work. No matter which era inspires Kargar, he depicts the human figure as shaped by its time. In this world he finds an endless resource of images he can use for his paintings. Based on images he “finds“ in the Internet, he composes objects, scenes or graphic elements in the form of digital collages, which then serve as master illustrations for his paintings on large canvasses. He uses motifs with which we are all familiar, pulls them out of their contexts and puts them into new ones. This creates a sensation of irritation. The viewer can hardly resist the attraction of his hyper- realistic work, painted with elaborate technique in numerous layers.
