Klaus Killisch

My studio is my heaven and hell on earth.

What I do in one sentence: I transform my notion of zeitgeist into personal-punk-pop-collage-paintings.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: Doing artwork is the best I can imagine for myself.

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: I try to turn my ideas as fast as they come into art.

Artists, I have on my watchlist (and why): Gustave Moreau, William Blake, Heinrich Füssli, Anselm Feuerbach… – I am always enthralled to look at their paintings and drawings. Duchamp is inspiring me too.

I am afraid of waking up and saying: I am not an artist.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: I’ld like to rest under an Egyptian seated sphinx with the words engraved: Dead Freaks Unite!
