Excellent Paint Photographs by Martin Klimas

Excellent Paint Photographs by Martin Klimas

Martin Klimas is a creative and a genius. In one of his latest art projects, he has depicted how “music would look like analogue” – sure we see those synthesizer bars and all, but how does music look itself? Well, Martin Klimas begins by splattering different colored paints (teal, lime green, red, etc) over the diaphragm of a speaker. Then the volume is turned up. For each image, Klimas selects music — typically something dynamic – the vibrations of the speaker send the paint aloft in the air and the pictures are taken with the paint in-air.

For this series, Klimas spent six months and about 1,000 shots to produce the final images from his studio in Düsseldorf, Germany. In addition to the obvious debt owed to abstract expressionism, Klimas says his major influence was Hans Jenny, the father of cymatics, the study of wave phenomena.
