Georg Baselitz


Georg Baselitz was born in Germany.

He is a printmaker, sculptor, draughtsman and painter.

By making his artworks he wanted to symbolize sexual obsessions, human body and organs. He has worked with different figure types showing different emotions. He was representing people's feelings, by making figures look mythical and even cartoonish. By this, he was breaking common stereotypes about how different people should look like, depending their emotions.

He has worked with many different materials, like oils, inks, acrylic paints, crayons, but he has always sticked to the same topic - emotions.
