Christian Manss

Christian Manss is an artist focusing heavily on the structure and texture of his paintings. He wants his work to bring about interactions between smooth and coarse surfaces, and creates clear structures. At first sight, his paintings seem fairly uniform, but at a closer look, you begin to see layers of texture and color at play.

Christian Manss (b. 1978, Eisenach, Germany) studied in Leipzig, lived in Zurich from 2007 and moved to Dresden in 2010. He also worked from 2012-2015 in Oberhausen, where he got a studio grant for 3 years. Christian has exhibited in South Korea, Switzerland, Great Britain, Germany, France, Poland and the United States. Travel grants brought him during the years of 2015/16 to France, South Korea and the United States. Christian’s art is currently in several private and public collections – such as the Weisman Museum, Los Angeles, etc.
