Born in 1958, artist Ulf Puder, is a german painter known for his haunting and affective works.
Puder graduated from the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst (HGB) Leipzig as a Meisterschüler of Prof in 1990. His superb paintings of architectural structures are devoid of life, hovering between abstraction and representationalism. Puder's work juxtaposes chaos and stillness. Under the dim sky, symbols of human creation, industrialization and destruction are presented from an extreme perspective, Puder's scenes create a sense of quiet chaos or animated stillness, confusing and haunting as they behold the viewer.
Ulf Puder has had many international solo shows and is part of numerous significant public and private collections, such as The Museum für Moderne Kunst, in Frankfurt, Germany, and Hildebrand Collection in Leipzig. Puder was also included in After the Wall, an exhibit shown at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm (1999), the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin and the Museum Ludwig in Budapest (2000).
