Artwork location: France

Karl Gietl was born in 1970 in South Africa. He grew up in the chaotic Johannesburg of the 80s.

He made his first solo show in 1994, and since then he has traveled the world (Chile, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Germany, France, Mozambique etc...)
Based in the south of France, thanks to his luminous oil painting, Gietl transports us to his fantasies, his dreams, his reality.

His references to classical painting, mixed with the German expressionist movement of the 1930s, give us a reading grid, place him in a movement in tune with our time.

The characters he stages are orgiastic, naked, exhibited, they offer us their comic and inappropriate exuberance.

Karl Gietl

South Africa  • 1970

Presentation

Karl Gietl was born in Wocester, South Africa in 1970. He grew up in the small mining town of Benoni and was educated in Johannesburg.

Karl Gietl left his studio in Troyeville and Johannesburg on May 4 to fly to Paris where he will spend six months at the Cité des Arts. He won this stay in France with the 1998 Prix de l'Atelier Volkskas, a trophy awarded each year by the South African banking group Absa. A kind of consecration, for this young 28-year-old painter, a graduate of the School of Arts in Johannesburg. A blessing, too, for this South African citizen who admits to being saturated with the stress and violence of his city. Johannesburg is however his main source of inspiration.

From his journeys, his adventures and his encounters, he draws a kind of diary on canvas. The thirty-five small oils (16×26 cm) which earned him the first Volkskas prize represent as many urban landscapes, characters and scenes that he captions like photos.

His style, focused on painting rather than conceptual art, is distinguished by a very personal tone, in a context where the artistic purpose is often linked, directly or indirectly, to politics.

Karl Gietl is not "disconnected" for all that, but he claims only his own point of view inspired by reality with great intensity.
