About Sven Teuber

The artist Sven Teuber was born in Ansbach, Germany in 1962.
Beginning in his teenage years and throughout his life, Teuber lived in France, the
Netherlands and moved about the german cities of Hannover, Frankenberg, Berlin
and Cologne - where he lives to this day. The ten years he lived in Paris (from
2002 to 2012) were especially formative for his work as an artist.
Today, he works as a freelancing artist in Hürth, near Cologne. His work is distinguished by a distinct focus on photography in combination with Digital Painting, collages, background installations and sculpture. His art pieces draw heavy influence from contemporary societal movements and the simple, yet irrepressible human desire to be creative.

My artistic work is best described as a combination of different techniques onto a single medium – the photograph; it forms the foundation of my work. I find that photography somewhat limits my artistic freedom, but I repeal this limitation by combining the picture with traditional painting. A variety of photographic forms is combined with a variety of painting techniques and together they form a synthesis that seeks to expand the possibilities for my artistic expression.
When I’m painting I use a brush and paint, a sponge, paper or a canvas - just as you would in traditional painting. But there is a difference: Most of these tools are used digitally on my tablet pc with a digital pen. For me, there is no contradiction in doing so - traditional and modern media complement each other.
My work is also very subjective: each piece captures my impressions and how I have seen, felt and experienced them. Breaking with artistic traditions is a deliberate part of this process.
