Thomas Bayrle is a german painter, graphic and visual artist, son of Artist Alf Bayrle
Being a pioneer of German Pop Art, Thomas Bayrle is best known for his „super-forms“, large images composed of iterations of smaller cell-like images. Humorous, satirical, and often political, his paintings, sculptures, and digital images are commentaries on the systems of control and domination in a rapidly globalizing economy, via allegorical references to traffic patterns, mass production, and the generic designs of popular goods such as wrappers and wallpaper.
