Anyone standing in front of Michael Knepper’s works will pause in awe at the vividness of the expressive portraits. Each individual work tells a unique story. Knepper is considered one of the most experienced and talented realist artists in Europe. The Hamburger Abendblatt very aptly titles Knepper’s art “Living Photorealism with a Message”, because in many of his works he deals with important issues such as environmental pollution and humanity’s responsibility for the next generations.
The essence of Gerd Leins’ works carry a philosophical core, for they deal, among other things, with the theme of “the loss of one’s self”. In addition to painting, Leins is also a poet and his artworks speak to the viewer in a kind of crypto-language, as they contain hidden patterns of interpretation. In terms of colour, the conceptual artist has concentrated on a black and white spectrum, which immensely intensifies the field of tension of his unique art.
A sensitive magic and at the same time a luminous preciousness radiate from the artworks of Lionel Machris, which are all exlusively studded with 24-carat gold. As a gifted artistic photographer, he creates high-quality unique pieces that transport the viewer into a mystical mood and change depending on the angle of view and the incidence of light. The artist succeeds in creating a very special moment with his noble works, combining fiction and realism to indulge in fantasy worlds and daydreams.
