Born in 1971, Ulrich Lamsfuss lives and works in Berlin. An appropriation artist who deliberately blurs the line between painting and photography, his work continues to call into question the very idea of originality. He works using photographs from a wide range of sources, including press, internet, sales catalogues, technical publications and art history. He painstakingly reproduces the photographs in oils to create a fresh interpretation of the chosen images.
