MUSCLE MANIACS – no paint no gain is the very first solo exhibition of André Wendland, a young German artist who graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe in the class of Tatjana Doll. André Wendland finds his inspiration in everyday life, seeing opportunities everywhere to feed his creation. His aesthetic, influenced by cartoons and popular culture, and his bold, vivid colors give his characters a very special and recognizable aura. The exhibition MUSCLE MANIACS – no paint no gain is thus articulated around the aesthetic, formal and colorful study of sports figures: irony meets a true attention to tasty details.
Exhibition from May 13 to June 12, 2023.
