Mathias Will

Artist based in Hamburg, Germany working mainly in the fields of film, performance and graphics, I am always interested in mixing and melting these media.

Cities and street live are inspirations of my work:
-Interventions and disruptions of daily routine with performances by "The white man”; a difficult character.
-Film with new perspectives and a non-narrative approach
-Graphics that comment the ugliness and the gracefulness beauty of things which surrounds me
