Karl-Kristjan Nagel and Tiiu Rebane both studied painting at the Estonian Academy of Arts in 1995-1999. Their first joint exhibition
"Room. The modern myth" took place in 1998. Both authors have been involved in painting since the early 1990-es. Their art is characterized
by the expressive-abstract painting style of the 90-es, sometimes also characteristic to photorealism. The emphasis is on the themes and
qualities that are specific to conceptually independent artist.
Karl-Kristjan Nagel's (b.1977) art is strongly influenced by his grandfathers and fathers painting styles. Following the example of their art education,
he continues many series of works in the tradition of both impressionist nature painting and metaphysical photorealism. His art also deals with
human and various portraiture of world cultural figures or their works. His works belong to the Art Museum of Estonia (KUMU), Tartu Art Museum
and several others Estonian and European private collections.
