Following his inclusion in Pace’s presentation at Art Basel Hong Kong 2018, Tim Eitel will have his first solo-exhibition in Beijing at Pace’s gallery in the 798 Art District. Featuring a selection of new and recent figurative paintings, the exhibition will highlight Eitel’s continued command of color, technique and form and showcase the artist’s ongoing investigation of interior space, memory and perception.
About the artist
Tim Eitel (b. 1971, Leonburg, Germany) conveys a deep command of color, technique, and form in his figurative paintings inspired by his observations of contemporary life and art history. He studied at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig from 1997 to 2001 and was a Meisterschüler (Master Student) of Professor Arno Rink from 2001 through 2003. He has received a number of prestigious awards throughout his career, including the Landesgraduiertenstipendium, Saxonia, Germany (2002) and the Marion Ermer Preis (2003). Cofounder of the collective Galerie LIGA in Berlin, he was one of the leading protagonists of the New Leipzig School before gaining a reputation as one of the most important painters of his generation.
