We've been stalking Karin Haas and her fantastic work on instagram since before we launched The Ode To, so it's quite an honour to now represent this great artist.
Her work can best be described as refined graphical shapes with a warmth and playfulness to them. Her drawings are all made by hand using thousands of strokes with coloured pencil and show a fantastic attention to detail. See all Karin Haas' drawings.
Having lived in New York and now being LA-based, her work is inspired by urban architecture and its patterns, textures and surfaces. We love a good graphic work and we're impressed by the stylized versions of marble, terrazzo and tiles. She's recently inspired by the Californian nature, colours and architecture.
Karin Haas was brought up by creative parents and considers her childhood of learning about art, food and travel to have shaped her into the person she is today. She's had several solo shows and group shows across the US. The Ode To is the only gallery in Europe selling Karin Haas artworks.
