Berlin Drawings 2, Stefan Marx
Stefan Marx’s primary medium is drawing, which he employs in a wide variety of contexts. In addition to classic drawings on paper, he also illustrates record sleeves, T-shirts, skateboards and magazines. His drawings are spontaneous sketches of his observations of everyday life, with the individual and the landscape as recurring themes.
Berlin Drawings 2 is released three years after the first volume, one could say the two volumes span pre- and post-pandemic Berlin. The small scale drawings were made in different situations – being on public transport, in nature, at the TXL airport, walking in different neighbourhoods, or just at home. On 300 pages Stefan shares his impressions, thoughts and observations of his surrounding space, drawing down faces, typographies, animals, daydreams and quotes of Berlin. Berlin Drawings 2 is Stefan's 30th publication with Nieves.
For Stefan Marx, drawing is a democratic pursuit. His drawings are the work of an individual, but they belong to us all. Drawing is a gift, a message, a postcard. Drawing is as naked and simple, as direct and immediate, as being sad or in love.
