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.
