Niky Roehreke's photography looks like a blend between cut out pictures and kaleidoscopic compositions. The German/Japanese artist has a knack for drawing attention towards particular elements within a picture -- be it body part or fashion apparel -- despite the seemingly chaotic formation of the image. To be able to direct disorder in order to create a coherent picture is truly impressive.

Many of Niky Roehreke's pictures involve black and white models shrouded in an abundance of vibrant colors and patterns. In making the human portion of the picture, the only element lacking any color, the audience's attention is immediately directed towards that portion of the picture with the surrounding colorful elements adding to that central colorless character.

Characters, colors, formation and text all come together brilliantly in Roehreke's work, demonstrating the artist's ability to make harmony out of chaos.
