Paco Knöller artworks and editions
Paco Knöller is a contemporary artist from Germany. Knöller studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy in the 1970s, where he was a student of Joseph Beuys. From 2001 to 2013 he was a professor at the University of the Arts in Bremen. Today the artist lives and works in Berlin.
Since the 1980s, Knöller has been one of the most important draftsmen of his generation, in which the artist occupies a completely independent position. His mostly large-format works impress with their compositions of dull to intensely luminous surfaces of colors as well as technoid forms and lines, which open up complex visual worlds to the viewer. His artworks and editions emerge from an ambivalent game between precise planning and accidental spontaneity. The artist largely frees himself from depicting figuration, objectivity and spatiality. Nevertheless, his abstract works sometimes still suggest fragmented elements of the human body or hints of plant elements.
Paco Knöller's works are regularly presented in leading German museums.
