Transfer Art

Transfer art (or Transferkunst) is a form of artistic work that focuses on the artist as a person of competence and on his or her qualification in questions on (visual) aesthetics. The specific kind of action is the association of different kind of topics or subsystems in society (transferring knowledge and perception between them (or rather generating these in associating them)).

Transfer art finally leaves behind the traditional (20th century and before) media-oriented canonical forms of artistic work (e.g. the division in painting, sculpture, media etc.). Ruediger John (Austria) and Klaus Heid (Germany) belong to the leading contributors to this advancement in theory and practice.

Transfer art (simplified) Transferring an art print to canvas has several advantages. The art becomes more durable and no longer needs protective glass during framing. The colors become richer. The process of transferring an art print to canvas can be done at home using these steps.


  1. Cut the canvas to the size of your print.
  2. Apply the liquid acrylic gel to the canvas with your sponge. Make sure the layer is smooth.
  3. Lay the print image-side-down onto the canvas.
  4. Flatten the print on the canvas, and roll out any air bubbles with the baren.
  5. Peel the paper back to see if the image is transferring to the canvas. If not, press it back down, wait a few minutes and try again.
  6. Peel the paper completely off when the image is transferred.
  7. Remove any small bits of paper by dipping your finger in water and gently rubbing the paper off.


Famous quotes containing the words art and/or transfer:

    Good art however “immoral” is wholly a thing of virtue. ... Good art can NOT be immoral. By good art I mean art that bears true witness, I mean the art that is most precise.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    No sociologist ... should think himself too good, even in his old age, to make tens of thousands of quite trivial computations in his head and perhaps for months at a time. One cannot with impunity try to transfer this task entirely to mechanical assistants if one wishes to figure something, even though the final result is often small indeed.
    Max Weber (1864–1920)
