André Laame creates high quality images with a contemporary style. As painting, drawing and 3D-graphic. »I'm looking for images, which are able to describe moods and evoke emotions. The style is a very important means of expression. Therefore I'm not limited to only one way of illustration. Rather the topic leads me in the right direction for my research and experimentation until I have found the best interpretation. I like to use close-up views with carefully selected colors. I am particularly interested in social and cultural topics.« André Laame
