Uwe Tabatt was born in 1966 in Berlin.
His art combines a civilization-critical impetus with a fantastic realism.
Tabatt is no ordinary artist, he does not put himself in a drawer.
He has developed and preserved his own unique style.
His pictures tell stories. Only at second glance do you discover small details that the artist skillfully installs to captivate the viewer and to offer new aspects.
His pictures not only document facts and events, they also show visions and give food for thought. On the one hand they disenchant the viewer with a smile and at the same time make them thoughtful. Often it is serious facts that he visualizes with artistic professionalism and always seasoned with a pinch of irony and humor. He worries about the world that surrounds him and implements his thoughts in his work. In doing so, he encourages the viewer to change perspectives and encourages critical reflection on what is portrayed.
In the artistic realization Uwe Tabatt has a very special signature. His pictures are stereoscopic, he reinforces this effect by adding plastic elements.
Uwe Tabatt's sculptures and moving image objects mix round and spiky, city and nature, organic and urban. He was as fond of the round as he was of the soaring extremes.
Part of Tabatt's works also revolve. Rotating tires can be seen as symbols of speed and dynamics, forming the background noise of the noisy, petrol-fueled, expanding metropolis. The emotional exuberance mates Uwe Tabatt with a rough rhythm, which is generated by a good deal of sarcasm.
Tabatt painted his forms in wood, rubber, metal and on canvas with acrylic. Brushwork and colors create bubbling calm when dizzy, and crackling tension as rotation arises.
Regular exhibitions since 1990 in galleries, federal ministries, museum and state parliaments. His works are in public and private collections.
