Born in Germany in 1932, hives and works in Germany.

Gerhard Richter began painting in the 1960’s, fascinated by the rivalry between traditionalist painting techniques and mass media imagery, as well as the ability of each medium to represent and interpret reality. He would project found photographs onto canvas, tracing the images and then blur the paint with a soft brush or sponge to create his famous photo-paintings. Since then Richter has been alternating figurative and abstract paintings. He also creates pieces that are on the border of painting, sculpture and architecture, for which he uses glass, exploring its materiality.
