About Markus Hofko : Within the arts but also in everyday life Markus Hofko is a left field thinker and questioner. Through subtle provocations and outside-the-box approaches he triggers curiosity. His activities range from music productions, to stage plays, publications, music videos and illustrations to product and interior design. His interdisciplinary projects led to a holistic approach in his art which builds the basis for considered and forward thinking concepts.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Coming from a "Communication" Design background I always search for a deeper meaning or concept within design. What for and who for are essential questions when working on designs. They should be considered seriously and not be overdrawn by plain ornaments. Design should follow a distinct goal. This is where art has the freedom to live by intuition and loose interpretation or plain and subjective expressionism.
