About Peter Schlangenbader
I am a Contemporary German Expressionist,my roots are from the cave-painters to DaDa,art brut and Punk.The wildlife is my fountain,I am possessed to paint and
when I paint,I`m god and evil together and the canvas is my battlefield.
When I take the brush in my hand I switch out my consciousness,I only feel the way it goes.
Art is visible magic and an inner adventure,inspiration is decisive.I must grow over me and my borders.
A central theme in my art is the head,in it works the brain,everything comes out of it,its the beginning and the end.
The human beeing reels through a perverded wonderland and became his own biggest enemy.
But mankind never gave up its longing to the paradise.
Since 2010 I paint together with the artist Larissa Nod.Our topical series has the working-title " Paradise "
That means not a space in opposite spheres but a state and sense of living.
Love and happiness are the universal gral of beeing and our paintings are messages of blissfullity.
My studio is in the same house,where the world-famous german expressive painter and founder of the " BrÃ¼cke " artists group Karl Schmidt Rottluff lived and worked in the 1920th.
I continue this way and bring the Berlin Expressionism into the 21.th century.
