The German painter Armin Boehm was born in 1972 in Aachen. From 1995 to 1997 he studied art at Münster’s academy, the Staatliche Kunstakademie, and then transferred to Düsseldorf’s art academy, where he was a pupil of the well-known German painters Konrad Klapheck and Jörg Immendorff. Boehm is known for his large-format works featuring imaginary landscapes and urban architecture. He oscillates between figurative and symbolic works. His approach to painting is experimental. For his portraits and interiors he employs a mixed technique, combining glazes, drippings, metal filings and oil pigment applied in a pastose manner. Boehm has been presented in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Germany and internationally, for example at the Kunstverein Braunschweig, the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, the Kunstsammlung in Düsseldorf and the Goethe-Institute in Johannesburg, South Africa. He lives and works in Berlin.
