“Our thoughts are the loudest when our mind is the most quiet.“David Drebin
David Drebin David Drebin’s installations reflect the artist’s stream of consciousness. They play the keyboard of emotions: some[mes humorous, then again bitter, sad or happy. The artist is able to emphasize feelings through the interplay of light, color, and a corresponding typography. This creates monumental leitmotifs from Drebin’s emotional cosmos, and his powerful visual language is unmistakably present in this artistic subject as well.
