Artist Focus

Artist Focus: Claudia Kaak

Born in 1987 in Heppenheim, Germany, where she lives and works, Claudia Kaak is a self-taught artist whose main subject is the human figure. Her oil paintings are based on photographs and movie stills. Every work has an autobiographical and social narrative which focuses on her childhood experiences and mental illness. Her artwork deals with existential feelings, the inner strife of human beings and the extreme, unlimited emotional and physical experience of pain. Her work evokes strong emotions and confronts observers with the dark sides of human beings but also the complete opposite. Her intention is to break taboos and allow emotional disorder to seep through the artwork.

Kaak is a member of PoetsArtists and the International Guild of Realism. Her work is held in collections nationally and internationally. She has been a finalist for the 13th, 14th and 16th International ARC Salon and has been awarded by the International Guild of Realism (2019), the Grand Salon (2020) and American Art Collector (2023). —
