About the Artist:
Lioba Brückner (b. 1988) is a painter based in Oberhausen, Germany.
She portrays young women in a surrealistic manner superimposed by plants or insects while submerged in dripping oil colour and translucent layers. Her subjects transport a melancholic and dreamful mood while often seem lost in thoughts.
Every painting is a reflection of thoughts and feelings she experiences during the time period of creation. Lioba uses her specific aesthetic for her portraits which derives from her fascination of the beauty in every woman.
Influenced by contemporary artists, old masters, her admiration for nature, Japan, science-fiction and fantasy movies her art is in a constant state of development.
