Artist and oeuvre: Art studies at the Hochschule der Künste Berlin with Hans Jaenisch, Hans Uhlmann and Bernhard Doerries. From 1954 to 1956 imprisonment in the German Democratic Republic. From the mid-eighties until his death in 2012 complete withdrawal from the art business. In a life of ascetic seclusion obsessive and exclusive occupation with painting and drawing.

„He was painting until late at night, every night. No television, sometimes a newspaper. A colorful world. One always thinks that people with delusions produce mad paitings: black in black, cries from an opened mouth. But delusion can be a wise place of retreat. To be fully with oneself excludes everyone else. That’s protecting, makes cheerful. This thin line on which all artists balance: exalted or respectable, maniac or bourgois, poseur or poet. Or all at once. Without letting the others find out.“ (G. Eisenhauer, Der Tagesspiegel July 7, 2013)
