BIOGRAPHY

HOME HOME GALLERY GALLERY EXHIBITIONS EXHIBITIONS BIOGRAPHY BIOGRAPHY
After training as a graphic artist and designer at the school of applied arts and at the school of graphic and design in Düsseldorf in the late 1960s, Siegfried Lehmann worked many years in the graphic studio of Conti-Elektro. Since 1981, he is a freelance artist and graphic artist with his own studio. His main activities are oil and acrylic paintings, 3D-art as well as sculptures of wood and plastic. In his artworks, Siegfried Lehmann repeatedly puts ideas from every day´s reality into geometric-poetic compositions of great clarity, combined with suggestions from the subconscious. The issues of our time are reflected in his works, shown in his fantastic- realistic-subjective imagery. At the same time, he is not fixed on an art style or a genre, but his work is characterized by diversity, variety and the interplay of assorted styles, combined with new unprecedented ideas. His spectrum ranges from abstract or graphic representations to surreal-bizarre. In his latest work Siegfried Lehmann intensively has dealt with the 3d-art and thus brought a whole new aspect to his artworks. Siegfried Lehmann presents his artworks at international art fairs, in museums and galleries in Beijing, Miami, New York, Florence, Daugavpils (Mark Rothko Art Centre) and Lisbon.

SIEGFRIED LEHMANN                                                     Keith Haring argued, "The contemporary artist has a responsibility towards humanity. He has to continue his celebration; he must oppose the dehumanization of our culture.” Following this credo, German painter Siegfried Lehmann accomplishes a lively narrative through captivating compositions filled with geometric and graphic art components. Appealing to the viewer’s subconscious, Mr. Lehmann navigates his paintings to reach a balance between the figurative and the abstract. Seeking to establish an alternate reality in which social relationships are prioritized over digital technologies, Mr. Lehmann’s art investigates the human condition through his distinctive artistic identity. Eagerly accepting the challenge of finding a solution to artistic problems posed by both his imagination and by his mediums, Mr. Lehmann’s subject matters may begin with realistic images, but may also include fantastical, whimsical, or abstracted forms. By combining multiple images, subjects and symbols, then revealing them from different viewpoints, unexpected and imaginative results are obtained. Contrasting organic forms create complex relationships as they overlap within an abstracted dynamic background, and there is a subtle change of color and density as his hard- edge band styled produces vibrations and illusions of spatial expansion.  Cool and expert, Mr. Lehmann judiciously planned geometric paintings coordinate a close color rapport with considerable finesse, and his spectral colors exist independently in space, without altering the over-all forms of the surface, or the complexities of the structure itself.                                                                                                 With a contemporary visual vocabulary, Siegfried Lehmann’s oeuvre manifests the dynamic placement of colors and shapes in a carefully controlled aesthetic environment. Building an atmosphere with simple, clean lines infused with variety of textures, shapes, and layers, this gifted artist utilizes his background in design to create an active image where line, color and form coalesce and float freely in space, creating a complex relationship between the individual elements and the overall composition. Letting the work speak for itself, each painting is open to the interpretation and the impression of the viewer. Excelling in technicality and precision, the complexity and thoughtfulness of each composition has earned Siegfried Lehmann recognition both within Germany and internationally. Trained as a graphic artist and designer, Mr. Lehmann has enjoyed a successful career in the graphic design studio of Conti- Elektro, in addition to working as a freelance artist within his own studio. Exploring the mediums of oil, acrylic, and 3-Dimensional art, Mr. Lehmann has presented his artwork at a multitude of international art fairs, museums, and galleries around the world.
