attention spans seam to be getting shorter and shorter in our heavily mediated times in which the smart phone is playing an increasingly important role.

His latest exhibitions took place in Weserhalle Berlin, Affenfaust gallery Hamburg, ungefдhr5 Cologne, Kunsthalle Exnergasse Vienna, Good Mother Gallery Oakland California and Yui Gallery New York.

Waak’s colorful figurative works explore the curious nature of human behavior contrasting the cheerful with the morbid. Paul Waak lives and works in Berlin.
