Why to stay in Dresden as a young artist?
Concerning the art business, Dresden has chosen the calm mode, enabling the individual to find the concentration needed to carry out focused work. Because of that I still feel comfortable in this city. Also important to me is the city's unique closeness to nature. Since autumn of 2009 till summer of 2016 my studio had been located in Dresden-Plauen. Together with Lutz Bleidorn, who is a painter as well, a stimulating joint workspace has developed by now. Our joint studio is set on the premises of the Hofmühle (colloquially called Bienertmühle), a place known to culture. The business magnates of the Bienert family – among them Ida Bienert and her son and husband to Gret Palucca – settled in Dresden and became one of the city's most important art patrons. In short, artists like Palucca, Kandinsky and Klee all benefited from their support.
