Biography from the Archives of askART

Biography photo for Volker Kuhn
Volker Kuhn is best known for his series of 'Art in Boxes' three-dimensional wall pieces populated by small figures and animals.  His sculptures are informed by 'object art' and the work of assemblage artist Joseph Cornwell.  References to Dada, Surrealist and Pop Art can also be identified within his vibrant and humorous wall sculptures.

He was born in 1948 in Neuenkirchen, Germany and studied Sculpture at the Bremen Academy of Arts, where he was honored with the Young Advancement Award, given by the Bremen Senate.  He spent a period working as a Printmaker, producing miniature etchings, which are now collector's items.  His work has been featured in publications such as Die Welt, Der Kunsthandel and Berliner Morgenpost.
