The artist André Schulze, formed in 1982 in Dresden, works on a surrealist universe of buildings of which we hardly know what their function is.

A surrealist universe

At the top of the stairs, a pink shed, cramped but resistant. Elsewhere, a palace enclosed in a cube, as if fossilized. The works of André Schulze integrate into a surrealist universe buildings which lead an independent life even if we hardly know what their function is.

André Schulze THE BLUE BOTTLE (2019)

He seeks to show how this ordinary architecture slowly disappears from the landscape

Born in 1982 in Dresden, the artist grew up in East Germany, and works on the landscapes and architecture then found in his country. He takes photos of industrial or railway architecture and unnamed buildings. And back in the studio, he tries to show how this ordinary architecture slowly disappears from the landscape. To do this, he integrates the buildings in surreal situations, always accompanied by a touch of irony. He also plays with contrasts: “As a former graffiti artist, I have always been fascinated by the brilliance of colors, and today I like to combine bright colors with earthy tones”. He devotes more than a month to each of his paintings, a slowness imposed by the chosen medium, oil painting.

The artist, trained at the Fine Arts of Dresden, has a work already well recognized, with works that have been exhibited in museums, galleries and art fairs in Germany, or that have integrated private collections in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, without forgetting the art collections of Dresden and that of Saxony.
