Biography / Sokar uno

Born in the city of Gotha based in the state of Thuringia, German artist Sokar uno works as graffiti artist, painter and illustrator. Inspired by his mother’s portrait works and comic book heroes of the 90s, Sokar uno combines both to create partial-realistic, often dark and morbid, images of humans who have been altered in shaped. His work can be found on his collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/6 in 2014.

The bodies Sokar uno creates using spray cans, paint rollers and brushes, seem like they were broken apart and then glued back together in bust like pieces, which attributes to their morbid looks and adds a haptic layer to the painting. Sokar uno, who, besides obtaining an apprenticeship as a technical drafter is a self-taught artist, processes current events as well as his own very personal experiences and state of mind with his art. Having worked as a restorer, his artworks sometimes even touches upon myths surrounding historical paintings.
