Born in Germany in 1971, he lives and works in Berlin.

Ulrich Lamsfuss borrows images from different sources – advertising, press, and cinema or art history – which he then meticulously reproduces in his paintings, exploring the intersections between visual culture, fine art and commerce. The artist titles each work after its original author and context, emphasizing the arbitrary nature of images and the archival impulses in his practice. Lamsfuss’ paintings are enigmatic and hyper real, compelling the viewer to discern between original and reproduction, physical and digital, and art and advertising.
