Katharina Grosse belongs to the generation of German artists who grew up with the Berlin Wall. Memories of this resurface in an explosive fusion of reworked Fauvism and post-graffiti urban art, notably in her murals. Armed with her spray gun, Katharina Grosse always works in situ. From ground to ceiling, she atomizes acrylic paint over vast surfaces, letting it drip and dribble over the edge, as if she had to paint without any limits and cover as large an area as possible..
