A.R. Penck

Germany, 1939- 2017 Switzerland

Painter, sculptor, poet, graphic artist and musician. In the early sixties, he made the first filiform and schematic figures that have popularized his style. A few years later, this sign language will gain in complexity by using theories derived from the world of mathematics, cybernetics and theoretical physics. His sculptures are often evocative of the stone heads of Easter Island and other manifestations of Polynesian art.
