Biography

Hans Mendler, a German painter and sculptor, was born in 1950 in Neresheim near Stuttgart. He graduated from the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart, and in 1978 relocated to Leonberg where he lives at present.
The artist works in different styles and uses different techniques: oil, acrylics, Chinese ink, even his fingers and collages. Most of his paintings are abstract; some of them almost monochrome, but the rest are painted with lively, even wild colours. Sometimes bright colours are freely flown into quiet colours and vice versa. Nevertheless, the change always seems natural and thoughtfully composed. His work is striking artistic skill of the author to balance between abstract and figurative art, often easily switch from one type to another.
