Whether working independently on canvas or collaborating with Etam Cru to create gigantic murals, Sainer has an unmistakable and unique style that sets him apart. His work is a child-like exploration of various fantasies expressed with vibrant colour and beautiful illustrative technique. His figures are often central to his compositions and, while anatomically accurate, are idealised, attractive manifestations of curious human beings in various surreal situations. Articulated, slender and almost balletic, they float in perfect worlds where car wrecks balance on roof tops, flowers blossom over architectural spaces and billowing garments, animals adorn and explore strange assortments of inanimate objects and bodies twist and stretch as if their souls were straining to escape their earthly confines. Psychedelic flashes articulate the features of Sainer’s subjects and contrast with his subtly rendering of skies and organic forms. Gestures are exaggerated and individualised by angular, slightly distorted body parts and caricaturish faces. There are elements reminiscent of the surreal charm of Studio Ghibli and the atmosphere Sainer achieves truly guides his audience through the looking glass. Playful and inquisitive, Sainer creates art that illuminates the streets and transforms humdrum architecture into points of inspiration, colour and magic in cold urban environments while achieving paintings that sit comfortably in fine art situations as comfortably as in the world of graffiti.
