Paul Wesenberg is a painter with a special interest in the materiality of paints and canvas. His approach reflects both the deeply considered foundations of his own position and the unbridled delight he takes in demonstrating— with maximum opulence—the ambition and autonomy of his paintings. His free-flowing forms—now abstract, now concrete, here chaotically agglomerated, there docilely linear, in some places densely impastoed, in others blithely fluid—turn his paintings into sensory events.
Paul Wesenberg * 1973 in Minsk, Belarus. He grew up in Belarus, Finland and Germany. He lives and works in Berlin since 2017. Wesenberg studied at the Kunstakademie Minsk and at the Muthesius Art University in Kiel, Germany. His second degree was followed by 10 years of project-related work as a graphic brand architect in Northern Europe. He received a DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) award in 1995. His works have been shown internationally in solo and group exhibitions in Berlin, Hamburg, Karlsruhe, Heidelberg, Winterthur, Tallinn and Minsk since the 1990s. Wesenberg’s work is part of and exhibited in different private collections.
