Thomas Bayrle

 

We’ve recently re-discovered the work of Thomas Bayrle – an artist who we find hard to place within any kind of genre or generation. Well over seventy years old, he is considered to be a pioneer of Pop Art, seriality and media art, and his work is inspired among other things by machines, jazz and the repetitive nature of prayers.

Here are some of his works that make us want to live within a Bayrle world. From his first kinectic machines inspired by all things Chinese, to his raincoats, to the wallpapers that he designed as backgrounds for his raincoat models, to the amazing entrance he made for a recent Frieze London in 2012… we’re inspired by Bayrle and his objects within objects.
