Albert Oehlen |1954 , Born in Krefeld, Germany

Albert Oehlen is one of the most important artists of the neo-expressionist movement in Germany, who played a central role in the group of emerging artists during the 1980s. After completing an apprenticeship in a publishing house, he went to the Hamburg School of Visual Arts in 1978 and began to exhibit his work. Albert Oehlen creates large paintings that are expressive and full of movement, where the colours fuse to give an abstract impression of unified power. His canvases are often hidden behind thick, built up layers, suggesting forms that can be both polemic and symbolic.

His work is exhibited in museums and galleries in Paris, London, Berlin and New York.
