Anwar Taimuri Artist Bio:

Born and raised in Düsseldorf, I left Germany for a three year art study in the USA. On my return to Germany I applied to the Drama School Düsseldorf for a three year study in acting. Further studies involved English translations – in particular in the field of economics. Although I got quite involved in the free-lance translation business, my work in painting and drawing, which started off several years before my studies in art, continued. Still, this course of life which was drawn by curiosity and different interests seems to have parted me from art at times. The statement “Once you come from Art you’ll always be in Art” (David Bowie) summarizes my background and perfectly expresses the situation when I returned to art for good. It seems that I have lived a life outside art only to get closer to art. And this path heightened my awareness of the immediate interaction of both life and art. Life is a source from which art draws creativeness. And creativeness has a life of its own that comes through and implements the final works beyond my control. Although ideas and thoughts relating to the works seem to be mine, all elements swirl before they finally settle – and if simplicity is the result, the process as such is even more astonishing. Love for the human figure, the aesthetics, classical art, renaissance art and modern art are sources for the energy that drive my work. In writing about my works I focus on formal aspects and goals. Painting is my means of expression and I may realize only on completing the painting which one of the thoughts in my mind is highlighted and captured by the final works. Artists absorb the world around them and in creating art a general statement or a personal view is most definitely part of the works.
