Gemälde Stadt am Meer

Artist: Helge Leiberg


Helge Leiberg, born 1954 in Dresden, studied at the College of Fine Arts in Dresden. He is a draftsman, painter, graphic artist, sculptor, book illustrator, musician, in GDR times he was also a filmmaker.

Life as a dance. Helge Leiberg captures his jumping, bouncing, and running figures on the canvas in quick violent brushstrokes. The bronze sculptures with green patina are a demonstration of vehement life affirmation. They exude sovereignty and self-confidence.
