Michael Sowa (update)

Michael Sowa
When I first wrote about the delightfully whimsical and decidedly off-kilter paintings of German artist Michael Sowa back in 2006, I had to refer readers to poster sites to view examples of his work.

I still can’t find a dedicated web presence for Sowa — though there is a portfolio on the site of artists’ rep, Margarethe Hubauer — but a number of his paintings have been posted to WikiPaintings, and there are a few other sources for images in the form of articles and blog posts.

There is a collection of his work, Sowa’s Ark, that is of of print but available used. There is also now a video clip showing how some of his art was used in the 2001 film Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain (released in the US. as Amelie).

For more information and background, see my previous post on Michael Sowa.
