As part of his “Bag Art Projects,” Thitz uses bags as a vessel for communication. He focuses on bags used to carry luxury items, clothing, vegetables, or baked goods. His works are colorful, sometimes strange or bizarre, intriguing and always interesting. The goal of his artistic journey is to transform everyday objects to “Bag art.”
“Bags and Acrylic on canvas,” is how the artist describes the materials used to create his works. “ Those who would like to truly paint big cities should not copy the city exactly, instead, they must try to paint the full experience including the noises, dirt and smells. In just a second infinite information is communicated. This is the city I try to capture in my artworks.
Thitz´s bag projects have taken him worldwide. His “Bag Cosmos” extends beyond Europe to cities in both North and South America as well as Asia and Northern Africa.
