Born in Wittenberg (town of Martin Luther) on the first of November 1956. Already at school he discovered painting as an important part of communication with life. He finished his professional training as decorator, script and graphic painter. He passed his final examination after taking evening classes. During his study years he looked for ways to find his identity. His wish for identity hasn't always been in agreement with the interests of society, which led to difficulties in the socialistic state of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). In 1986 he got his diploma in writing and graphic workmanship and also started to create wood and jewellery designs. Most of his paintings since 1986 are on display in the region of Thuringia, Germany. His works show the truth/reality of time - vision - nightmares and life experiences in a surrealistic way. These are pictures which do not always fit into a normal frame - you can't comprehend them completely. In every mood one discovers something new. The viewer can judge for himself.
