German-born artist Mevlana Lipp takes inspiration from the natural world that has surrounded him from a young age growing up in a small German village. From the study of flora, fauna and biology, Lipp creates biomorphic pieces at the confluence of sculpture and painting. The artist cuts the floral forms out of wood and merges them into relief-like pictures. The bright colour of the motifs enhances the artificial effect and emphasises their entanglement.
Mevlana Lipp's works have been featured in numerous exhibitions, including 'Lost in translation', Plus One Gallery, Antwerp, Belgium (2021); 'Poisonous kiss, lovely venom', Tick Tack Gallery, Antwerp (2020); '03', PM/AM Gallery, London, UK (2020); 'Mixed Pickles 7', Ruttkowski Gallery, Cologne (2020); 'Calypso', Public Gallery, London (2020); 'Eden', KUK-Cologne Gallery, Cologne (2019); "Basic Instinct" Ak-Raum, Cologne, Germany (2019) and 'Paradise regained', Kulturbahnhof Eller, Düsseldorf (2019), among others.
