Kanjo Také is a multimedia artist who intuitively understands how to join all forms of artistic media. Drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, video, projections and the use of new media feed his inspiration and explode into previously unseen bursts of imagination and new imagery by which he views, and explains, the world in new and vivid ways. The observer discovers connections one could previously only sense. The world is revisualised with great responsibility, it becomes a playground for the imagination, freed by art from its mere facts.
This is accomplished by the artist combining all media. He joins painting with drawing with photography and the computer in a manner that has experts and engineers marvel at previously inconceivable technical possibilities that come to life through these combinations. Také transfers the image to new abstractions that are uniquely enabled by the combination of media. For the most part, the objects lose all vestiges of their original meaning, they take on a different character altogether, allowing alternative messages to surface that operate outside the assignations.
The imagination of the artist, fed by his experiences, emotions, knowledge and aesthetic sense, allows him to invent a new world in which people, scenery, nature, urban environment, artefacts, philosophy and history, and an inordinate knowledge of their historicities, forge a new, visual alliance. Také is a master of digital painting, of art of the 21st century. His creative faculty lends him an individuality that enables aesthetic inventions that have no kin in today’s media and digital painting and photography. His works are evidence of the artist’s unique status.
