COMMON ROOTS: January 31, 2020 – March 14, 2020
With the exhibition “COMMON ROOTS” we are presenting two exceptional artists not only with connections to the “Who is Who“ of contemporary art, but also look back on common roots and long standing friendships.
UDO DZIERSK studied at the art academies in Düsseldorf, Berlin and Karlsruhe with Gerhard Richter, Georg Baselitz and Per Kirkeby. In 1988 he was appointed master student of Markus Lüpertz, whose retrospective can currently be admired in the Haus Der Kunst in Munich. In addition to his professorship at the Düsseldorf Art Academy, he is lecturing at the Academy of Fine Arts in Xi’an and Beijing Normal University.
After studying at the art school in Krasnodar and the Karlsruhe Art Academy, IGOR OLEINIKOV changed to the Düsseldorf Art Academy. Here he studied with Jörg Immendorff and with Markus Lüpertz, whose master student he became in 2002.
The works of art of both exceptional artists are an integral part of national and international collections and are shown at international art fairs.
We are looking forward to your visit.
