I like to bring pixel into the material world. They were never meant for that. They are artifacts of former technical limitations. I like to research their qualities for transporting higher teachings by traditional art techniques, creating symbolic works, with references to minimalism, abstract and op art. This is my current way of questioning these digitally dominant times.

Me in 2020

Ivo Zibulla is based in Leipzig. His works focus on effects that symbols have on the human psyche both at the level of subjective and group behavioural patterns. He uses various artistic media, primarily painting, sculpture and installation, partly in public space.
His works quote the reduced 8bit aesthetics of early video games, while incorporating schamanic and sacral art from around the world. He uses the epithet Mu as signature.
