My figurative paintings

The figurative images are mostly metaphors. They point to philosophical or social aspects of everyday life, which move me or which I find inspiring. These include death and transience, war and terror - but other elementary events are possible motives of my work.

In addition, there are also backpacks on motifs of art history, which today have a certain explosiveness, such as the "robbery of Europe", "Babylon" or "Icarus".

It is also possible to create figurative commissioning without this additional background.

This has resulted in a completely independent series of works in addition to the constructive or non-objective pictures.
A connecting feature is my painting style, which is continually moving through my work.
