Dr. Michael Schäbitz, Berlin, Art Curator, Gallery Owner

His large-format works unfold their impact, especially in large contexts.

Volker Leonhardt was born in 1963 in Leipzig. From 1990 to 1995 Leonhardt studied painting at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig with Arno Rink and his assistant Neo Rauch. Here he completed a two-year master class study with Rolf Münzner. Volker Leonhardt lives and works in Berlin.

Leonhardt explores the space in the pictures with new constructions. Its development from the surface in space to the space in the surface is the result of a concentrated process, measured to the end. Leonhardt brings the viewer to a place that calms it and expands the senses.
