Salomé is a contemporary German artist best known for his Neo-Expressionist figurative and abstract paintings. An early member of the Junge Wilde art group, his work involves themes of sexuality, power, and kitsch. Executed with choppy brushstrokes and bright colours, his work is inspired by German Expressionists like Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Erich Heckel. “We were rebelling against Minimalism,” the artist said. “We wanted to bring the human being back into art. To bring painting back to life.” Born Wolfgang Ludwig Cihlarz on August 24, 1954 in Karlsruhe, Germany, he studied architecture before enrolling at the University of Arts in Berlin where he was trained in painting under Ulrich Knipsel. Along with the artist Luciano Castelli he formed the punk band, Geile Teire, in 1980. Over the years his prominence and recognition as an artist have risen. His work has been exhibited at documenta 7 in Kassel and the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Salomé currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany. (from artnet.com)
