Andreas Amrhein
Andreas Amrhein is a cosmopolitan storyteller par excellence. Born in Marburg in 1963, he grew up in Liberia/Western Africa, studied fine arts in Berlin, London, Malmö and Chicago, and became a Master under the painter and graphic artist Walter Stöhrer at the University of the Arts (then HdK) in Berlin. Employing his multi-layered, figurative pictorial vocabulary, Andreas Amrhein juxtaposes, with unconventional waywardness, elements appropriated from commercial culture an Source: https://cundkgalerie.de/en/artists/andreas-amrhein/

How Andreas' images come to life
Gestural brushstrokes alternate with delicate contours—watery planes and sketchy drawing with carefully detailed painting. Text elements have remained an important component of his compositions. Andreas Amrhein plays with language and contrives allusive titles that demand the adoption of new perspectives. Composition and intuition determine the forms and colours of his anachronistic pictorial worlds. https://cundkgalerie.de

Andreas is also a lecturer and instructor at Akademie für Malerei Berlin https://a-f-m-b.de
