Metropolises all over the world, lively with many people! The works of the artist Thitz have always represented a mixture of ideal and utopia, a brightly colored and cheerful world in a (slightly) improved today or a lively tomorrow.

On his extensive travels, Thitz collects attributes of urban cultures - and what represents civilizations better than their shopping bags? Thitz integrates them into his cityscapes, and their flaps transform into ripcords for the leap from sober reality into hidden dimensions. Bags from all over the world lie among his paintings. A fascinatingly associative network of ideas unfolds in ever-changing overpaintings and overdrawings in acrylic and ink. The colors begin to shine, the future, past and present merge, thousands of figures populate facades, seas of houses, bodies of water and even the sky.

Shopping bags may soon no longer exist. That's the way things go. This gives Thitz's paintings a new dimension: in addition to their autonomous value as sought-after art objects, they also gain the aura of irretrievable contemporary evidence.

The artist's works are in numerous public and private collections around the world.
