Sonic Wave documents the latest series by Berlin-based Austrian painter Robert Muntean (born 1982), inspired by pop and literary culture from Sonic Youth and Nick Drake to Joris-Karl Huysmans and William Blake. Muntean’s paintings are both abstract and figural: each depicts a human figure, sometimes present only as a silhouette hidden within expressive brushstrokes.

Austrian painter Robert Muntean (born 1982) depicts his quietly haunting figures--mostly young persons--against generally abstract backgrounds, emphasizing slight gestures of crouching, hunching, bending over or raising a hand. Echoes focuses on Muntean’s paintings from the past two years.
