Albert Oehlen

Albert Oehlen has been a key figure in contemporary art since the 1980s.

Exploring both abstraction and figuration, he works in an eclectic variety of techniques, from painting and collage to printmaking. Characterized by rejection of what is considered to be beautiful or visually appealing, his work displays an air of deliberate amateurism.

Albert Oehlen, born 1954 in Krefeld, Germany, lives and works in Bühlen, Switzerland. He has been collaborating with BORCH Gallery & Editions since 1998.
