About #HDKfromHome - Audiotour in English through the exhibition "Michael Armitage. Paradise Edict"%

In his large-format, nuanced oil paintings, the young British-Kenyan painterMichael Armitage combines East African and European motifs and painting traditions. He draws inspiration from political events, pop culture, folklore and personal memories, weaving these into mythically charged and dreamlike images. With “Paradise Edict” Michael Armitage celebrates his first major presentation in a museum setting and his first show in Germany.
