ComicKontext Artist: Matthias ‚ÄļMatze‚ÄĻ Latza

Since issue #2.5 in May 2016, the curious (re-)searcher, who investigates with devotion and magnifying glass the speech bubble in which he stands, is the title illustration for our section ¬ĽComicKontext¬ę. In this section, Closure presents institutions and projects that are enriching the comic scene. The figure was drawn by Matthias ‚ÄļMatze‚ÄĻ Latza, who is no stranger to North German comic circles: his stories can regularly be found in Pure Fruit, the non-profit magazine for comics and illustrations. Under his battle synonym Kamimatze he is a tried & tested and victorious participant
in the relevant comic battles.

Matthias Latza studied Art and German at the Muthesius School of Arts Kiel and the Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel. He currently lives in Kiel and Fehmarn where he works as a teacher. He offers comic workshops and is involved in art education. In addition to the medium of comics, he has another artistic position in oil and acrylic painting.
