Uwe Holstein - Enter the gallery

Uwe Holstein is a visual artist, born in Hamburg. Until 1990 Holstein painted mainly in oil on canvas and made several drawings on black paper. After 1990 he focuses in acrylic on cardboard and hardboard. His style is sometimes abstract and sometimes figurative, surreal compositions in expressionistic colors. His subjects are people and society.

To the question "What do you want most?" I would answer: "one year with Max Ernst in Paris". Yes, I like the surrealists since my first encounter with Paul Klee, Hans Arp, Max Ernst and Joan MirĂ³. Why this appeal? Perhaps it is the desire for dreams in this realistic world.
