Martin Assig

Martin Assig (1959) Born in Schwelm, Germany. Lives and works in Berlin and Brädikow, Germany.
Martin Assig makes colourful abstract works of art. He combines the shapes of faces, bodies and patterns with words and sentences. At times his subjects are light-hearted, at times heavily charged. The artist draws his inspiration from many sources – religious traditions, folklore, rituals, the music of Bach, the literature of Marguerite Duras and the Russian authors. Drawing after drawing evolves out of a patient working process, like that of the monks who worked on medieval manuscripts or present-day comic strip artists. Diverse materials – pigments, beeswax and charcoal – create intimate and personal worlds, where sensuality and spirituality come together.

Currently we have no works on exhibit of this artist.
