Collection: David Lehmann
The artist completed his studies in Fine Arts at the University of Arts in Berlin. In 2014 he was a master student with Valerie Favre, today he lives and works in Cottbus. In his works, David Lehmann skillfully plays with content-related and technical possibilities. This narrow tightrope walk between the two extremes can be observed within his pictorial worlds all the times: Wit is juxtaposed to deep seriousness, colour is played off against form on the canvas, while figuration becomes existent alongside subtle abstraction. Furthermore, the artist makes use of the exciting interweaving of past and future by incorporating art-historical references juxtaposed with contemporary historical subjects. In the process, his artistic alter ego also takes shape within the canvas works.
