Hans Georg Kastilan was born in Insterburg, Ostpreußen in 1927 and lives at Kannen House since 1951. Kastilan often makes „trips of thought“ while painting. The dimension of these trips is limited by the number of sheets of paper he has put in front of him in order to document the “route” beforehand. Every sheet of paper shows one station of the journey. What is striking about his works is the repetition. He often chooses the same routes and uses similar signs to represent a city. The cities Muenster,RomeandNew Yorkhave towers as a symbol.
