Amber, 2023 , Acrylic on canvas, 40 x 60 cm

Hofmann (b.1983, Germany) draws his main inspiration from computer graphics, movies and music. His enthusiasm for disturbing, shocking, and surreal material, can be seen on his works. He misplaces light sources, created shadows that do not exist and portrays disproportionate figures with detached body parts. Hofmann aims to awaken the viewers by exposing them to his dystopian society, a society controlled by Artificial Intelligence. He depicts people striving to survive and maintain their humanness, as a direct reference to the refugee crisis. Uniforms, weapons and violence are common subjects in his paintings, functioning as a warning of the constant surveillance threatening our society.
