Coming up April 28-29th, CHRISTIAN HOHMANN FINE ART is pleased to announce a seminal weekend celebrating the work of Renaissance man and multifaceted artist Armin Mueller-Stahl.
Armin Mueller-Stahl was born in Tilsit, in what was then East Prussia, in 1930. Early on, after passing his examinations as a concert violinist and music teacher,
his efforts turned to acting. In 1980, he immigrated to West Germany, where he
established himself as an actor, soon making his way to Hollywood to join the
ranks of international screen stars such as George Clooney, Michael Douglas,
John Malkovich and Tom Hanks. He is most widely recognized today for his roles in the films “Angels and Demons”, “The Game”, “Avalon” and an Oscar nomination for his part in “Shine” with Geoffrey Rush.
Mueller-Stahl painted for over forty years before his work was first presented to the public through a Spring 2001 exhibition at the Babelsberg Film Museum in Potsdam.
“Painting, writing, making music and acting simply belong together, as I see it,” says the artist, who also admits that painting is his most honest endeavor as it
reflects authentic representations of truth.
On Saturday, April 28th Christian Hohmann Fine Art will present a look
at the artistic career of Mueller-Stahl through an exclusive exhibition in the
gallery. The artist, returning from a 13-concert tour throughout Europe, will
be in attendance.
On Sunday, April 29th, one of Mueller-Stahl’s films will be shown at
the Cinema Palme D’Or, followed by an up close and personal Q&A.
We hope you can join us for this celebration of an iconic man.
