Artist Crush: Pius Fox

April 10th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Pius Fox┬áis a German painter based in Berlin with a memorable name. It can be hard to put your finger on what it is that makes some abstract art “good” and some not. Why I’d put Fox in the former category is what I’d describe as a somber lyricism created by *playful* juxtapositions – of shapes, textures and colors – in his paintings.
