Michael Craig-Martin

A basketball. A water tap. A wheelbarrow. All of them have a function, all of them are more or less part of everyday life, so that they are almost overlooked because of their self-evident presence. Craig-Martin brings them back into our field of vision. With brilliant colors against a contrasting background, they look like two-dimensional drawings. In 2015, Craig-Martin said in an interview with the English newspaper The Observer, "We often look for the special in special objects or special events but actually, if we understood the quality of ordinary things, we are closer to the substance of life."
