Andrea Berthel


Andrea Berthel is the creator of the Canned Koi Cosmology, a series started in 2019 that encapsulates the world within a fish can. The use of bright Pop Art colors and humorous fish portrayals belie the deeper political, philosophical, social, and environmental themes embedded within each piece.

Andrea employs a hyper-realistic style, painting primarily in oil but often incorporating other mediums such as metal leaf, acrylics, and ink. She is a self-taught artist who honed her skills by studying and replicating the works of renowned Renaissance and Baroque painters, including Caravaggio, Tiepolo, Veronese, and Jan Davidsz de Heem.

The influence of these masters is evident in both her mural works and her hyper-realistic style. She currently calls Baden-Baden, Germany, her home. The experience of frequently changing residences has instilled in her a focus on art as a constant, fueling her journey to find a unique means of self-expression.

"For the last 1,5 years I am occupied developing the Canned Koi Cosmos as satirical on the colorful, shiny Social Media world in contrast to the challenges of modern times. The brilliant Pop Art colors, often enhanced by neon pigments, and the humorous portrayal hide the current challenges Corona crisis, overpopulation, climate change, compulsory consumption etc. The cans are labeled upside down, like the French cans from "Saupiquet", showing signature, title, year as weight and hashtags to further elaborate the theme|".
