About Volker Mayr

  • Biography

    Volker lives and works in Berlin. 

     In the beginning of his art career he started with realistic painting. Since 1985, non-figurative works predominate with references to abstract expressionism. Volker´s works are mostly oil on canvas. Considerable place take gouaches with oil crayons. 

     Volker’s statement:

    "My pictures arise from all the senses and emotions: they are sensual, un-premeditated and with a playful love for enigmatic details. Multiple and vibrant relationships between colors and surface textures are being created by layers that form transparent views, bold and expressive, emotional and spontaneous. My dreams tend to be colorful but non-figurative – thus, my paintings follow my dreams"

     Volker Mayr paints intuitively and emotionally: he wants to trigger impulses that try within the meaning of Antoni Tàpies, the soul of the viewer to vibrate. He wants to create images in the mind and in the heart of the viewer, his works as a medium that captures the imagination of others.
