  • BD GRAFT

    BD GRAFT
    Brian de Graft (Germany, 1988) is a self-taught artist based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    From is "Add Yellow" Serie, The artist is questioning ownership and non personification by pasting a yellow piece on artworks. 

    « Because most collages are made using other people’s work, artists are often confronted with questions like “is it ok for me to simply use this?” and “how much do I need to change before it ceases to be someone else’s and becomes my own?” This also gives collage a certain reputation. That’s why my series is it mine if I add some yellow? addresses the subject of art and ownership directly, in an in-your-face sort of way. If I alter someone else’s creation by simply adding a piece of yellow paper, whose is it? And does this even matter?»
