Björn Holzweg, born 1979 in Leipzig, lives and works in Hamburg since 2004. His paintings, sculptures, drawings and aquarelles are mainly shaped very graphically. He deals a lot with simple geometrical figures. For him, they are symbolic for our society: calculating, repeating and everlasting. With repetitive arrangements of those, he creates new spaces and dimensions. Thereby he breaks away from conventional image buildups with vanishing points. Holzwegs art isn´t interested in one kind of message. Instead he wants to adress the most diverse types of people and study their different reactions to his works.
Björn Holzweg has participated in various group exhibitions in Germany and in other European countries and has had solo exhibitions including in Hamburg, Berlin, Lucerne and Tel-Aviv.
