Marvin Lange was born on March 8th, 1996, and has been interested in art since his early childhood.
Inspired by Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Wassily Kandinsky, Gerhard Richter, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Marvin developed his own abstract, surrealistic and expressionistic painting style.
Marvin’s paintings reflect his thoughts and the everyday situations he is going through. His works are particularly striking because of the curved, explosive, lively paint strokes. A combination of expressive passion and informality gives the pieces a sense of freedom.
The paintings reach viewers on an emotional level while reflecting Marvin’s perspective and thought process.
„It’s everyday life that makes me think a lot over a certain period of time without really realizing it. And then there is a vision. I drop everything, and then it hits Canvas! It happens then, and I find myself in human faces, sharing all my thoughts, my emotions, my hurt, insecurity, fear of death… All the influences, cleaned of superfluous influences through social media, through guidance that I cannot explain, may utter in various colors. Creating a new work of art is an emotional challenge.
I have a bridge in front of me. And I hesitate to cross it. This is called a blockage. This blockage, even though I have a vision of the coming painting in front of my eyes, has to be crossed again and again.
I manage to do this repeatedly and am grateful that my uniqueness is not imaginary but is reflected in my artwork.”
