Merry Karnowsky Gallery Berlin Opens Solo Exhibition by Kill Pixie
"Experiments", 2009. Acrylic, ink, gouache and resin on paper on wood panel, 17.5 x 23.5 in.
BERLIN.- Merry Karnowsky Gallery Berlin presents "Supreme Beings", a solo exhibition by award-winning artist Kill Pixie.

Kill Pixie (AKA Mark Whalen) began as a graffiti artist on the streets of his native Sydney, Australia. Once he transitioned to fine art, his medium of choice became ink and acrylic on paper mounted to wood, coated in shiny resin.

In his latest body of work, Kill Pixie’s masked humanoid characters inhabit celestial pools and spas in a futuristic bathhouse where gravity loses all meaning.

The humoros candy-colored geometric paintings depict scenes of excessive human consumption and obsession with objects, as the characters worship the almighty dollar. Inspired by folk art, mechanical sciences, structures, and urban culture, Kill Pixie says, “My work is an exploration of the objects and the elements that repeat to infinity, and I am using these elements to illustrate what I am trying to communicate.”

In Kill Pixie’s meticulously crafted work, the viewer senses the indomitable spirits of creativity, resistance, and the power of adaptation. His work questions the games people are forced to play, as it fractures and realigns old divides between street and studio, and reinterprets the universal human struggle between our antagonistic instincts for freedom and control in the contemporary era. For Kill Pixie’s rapidly expanding audience around the world, the work points toward dynamic new understandings that will be necessary for survival in the future of our world.

Since 2006, Kill Pixie has shown in a constant stream of exhibitions in Los Angeles, London, Australia and Berlin. Izrock Pressings recently published his first book, Kill Communication. It includes 64 pages of fine art paintings and works on the street. Kill Pixie has also appeared in publications such as Juxtapoz, Modart Europe, Arkitip, and Monster Children.

In 2008, Kill Pixie was awarded the Sydney Music, Arts & Culture Award for Best Visual Artist. He currently lives and paints in Los Angeles, California.
