Philipp Rudolf Humm is a German/Belgian artist living in London. After initially pursuing painting alongside a demanding day job, Humm left the world of business to be a full-time artist in 2015. Humm is known for his narrative figurative paintings set together in collections, each of which is based on a theme. He combines contemporary styles with old masters’ techniques, and his work bears the influence of his early studies of existentialist philosophy, particularly the work of Heidegger and Sartre. Humm’s art engages with ideas of humanism,, consumerism, and the impact of technology upon the human condition.   In this authoritative look at Humm’s work, Edward Lucie-Smith analyzes how Humm’s art is often a paradox in itself “since paintings are essentially things made to be seen, not to be heard, not to be listened to” but Humm’s work is characterized by a  “desire to communicate thoughts and ideas in the most efficient way possible.” Pop Expressionism offers a wonderful introduction to the work of an artist whose renown is continuing to grow.
