Ruprecht von Kaufmann (*1974 in Munich, Germany) studied illustration and painting at the Art Centre College of Design in Los Angeles. After living in Los Angeles and New York, the German painter is now based in Berlin. In his paintings the artist explores such aspects as human relationships or the restlessness of our existence. His works are rich of emotional, literary and other references and often combine realistic and surreal elements. Since a few years Ruprecht von Kaufmann uses colored linoleum instead of canvas for his works. By cutting into the material and by building up paint structures on the linoleum-surface, the artist creates paintings that feature a three-dimensional, sculptural aspect. Until October this year, works by Ruprecht von Kaufmann can be seen in the group exhibition "Feelings" at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich.

After studying painting in South Korea, Yongchul Kim (*1982 in Yeosu, South Korea) moved to Stuttgart, Germany, where he studies at the Academy of Fine Arts since 2014. This year he will finish his studies. The characteristic brushwork of the young painter plays an important role in his figurative works: His figures seem to be swallowed by colored brushstrokes, struggling with them. Everything in Kim’s paintings is in a fluid state. By presenting such an unfixed state, the painter rises questions about the uncertainty of our existence. Kim himself describes his painting process as an attempt to get a better understanding of himself, our world and the influence of the society on the individual.
