Markus Lüpertz was born in Reichenberg (now Liberec) in 1941, and he served as the Director of Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Germany from 1988 to 2009. He has taught many representative artists in the German woodcut circles, such as Matthias Manson, Felix Druze and Marcus Oren. Lüpertz began his creation of art in the 1960s, had gained an international reputation in the 1980s, and he is known for being a member of the German Neo-Expressionism, together with Kiefer, Immendorff, Baselitz, Penck, Polk, and he is hailed as the German national treasured artist.
The lecture is themed “Contemporary Form of Painting”, as the artist Lüpertz will combine his artistic experience and share his understanding of art. In the process of more than 50 years of artistic exploration, Lüpertz’s art has formed his own unique style, containing both a great emotional tension, and a wealthy connotation of reality. German Neo-Expressionism, represented by Markus Lüpertz, had an important worldwide influence in the 1980s, it is not only a unique form of European art, breaking the American Pop Art which previously influenced Europe art and dominated the world, and also offers more sources and supplies to the expressive way of painting from the spiritual level.
