Thomas Neumann mit einem seiner Werke: Er malt keine Kitsch-Bilder sondern verfremdet die Themen durch leichte Abstraktion
Painting traditional Bavaria with a modern eye

Artist Thomas Neumann’s contemporary paintings of Bavarian customs strike a chord.

A new perspective on Bavarian traditions

They catch your eye: Thomas Neumann’s paintings are wonderfully kitsch-free depictions of deeply Bavarian traditions. The graphic designer is fascinated by Dirndls and Lederhosen, the typical Bavarian costume, by cows and mountains and other symbols of what is traditionally seen to be Bavarian. He renders those in abstract, slightly blurred paintings that create a contemporary look and reflect the self-assurance with which young Bavarians are deeply rooted in their identity, still sporting traditional costume with pride in daily life.
