MASCH lives and works in Berlin

1950 born in the Rhineland

1971 - 1973 study of free painting at the UdK (former HdK) Berlin with Prof. Karl Oppermann

His works, which he produced under the title "NEW GENERATION", possessthe magic of transience, thus appearing timeless.

He has perfected this technique in the Babelsberg film studios, among others. There he is regularly engaged by the Art Department as a set painter for Hollywood productions. As a highlight, he and his team received an Oscar for thebest set design for the film "The Grand Budapest Hotel" in 2015.

Also worth mentioning is his artistic collaboration on the films "DAS BOOT" , "AGUIRRE, DER ZORN GOTTES" by Werner Herzog,"Querelle" by Rainer Werner Fassbinder and "DIE BLECHTROMMEL" by Volker Schlöndorff, Paris Texas" by Wim Wenders, "Das Boot" by Wolfgang Petersen etc. etc.

Since the beginning of 2019, MASCH has also devoted himself again to figurative-abstract painting, which he had already pursued in very early years.His famous "SPECIES" - drawings and graphics, he now also produces in large format in oil on canvas. 

His main work, however, consists of ingeniously composed patchwork surfaces, which also show figurative representations.

MASCH was a guest professor for the UdK Berlin and the Fraunhofer Institute and taught art students at the Institute of Art and Design, Malta.

Since 2008 MASCH lives and works in Berlin again. Here he successfully runs the company Kunstleben Berlin together with the artist Romy Campe.

In Berlin, other projects have been developed, such as the Living Art Pictures Show and the artistic salon dinner. Exhibitions worldwide.
