Paul Eis, a young artist from Berlin, likes to describe himself as a student and passionate photographer. His works is a triumph of color: starting with buildings in Germany and Austria, he transforms simple white or gray architectures into rainbows of saturated colors, which he cuts out from their context and places on a sky-blue backdrop.
Eis started this project in 2015, posting images on his the_architecture_photographer Instagram account. His goal is to make apparently trivial buildings more interesting and prove that historical landmarks like the Bauhaus-Archiv by Walter Gropius or the DZ Bank by Frank O. Gehry represent a visual treasure – in contrast with modern cities’ “cement monsters”.
