At a young age Leon Löwentraut paints his vision of the great theatre called life. Using bold colours and expressive shapes and figures he shows people behind their social facade. The stunning paintings of the world renowned artist can now be admired at Gerhardt Braun Gallery in Palma de Mallorca.
About Leon Löwentraut
It was in his native country Germany at the early age of seven when Leon Löwentraut began to make his first drawings next to his mother. He still has some of them. Leon confesses to be a great admirer of women. He finds true inspiration in them when it comes to his work: art. Fashion and art always go hand in hand. Leon’s other main inspirations are Picasso, Matisse or Basquiat. As much as good food and fashion, with Christian Dior as a favourite.
Exhibition in Mallorca
Only 20 years old, Leon now creates contemporary art. “Sold out” is a term he often hears. His works are already sold before his exhibitions thanks to Leon’s fascinating painting style. After having presented his art pieces in cities such as London, Hamburg, Basel, Singapore, New York or Düsseldorf now it’s time for Mallorca. An island he loves. Under the title “Summer Madness”, he exhibits his latest works which could be admired at Gerhardt Braun Gallery in Palma.
This is a great opportunity to admire the works of an artist who makes you feel an overflowing energy the moment you see him. Because he is one of those special people, in the best sense of the word, who seem to have a halo. Who are pure feeling and life. And that’s also exactly what Leon wanted to show in this exhibition.
A colourful Depiction of Life
The exhibition’s purpose is to show the people behind the social facade. In a world often dominated by everything superficial, it’s surprising how at such a young age, Leon speaks in a very deep way about life and its meaning. Eventually, it doesn’t matter to have lived long. In the same way that it’s not necessary to have gone through many bad experiences in life to be able to give advice. Do what you feel like and follow your instinct, it will always work. And that’s exactly what Leon has done.
Admiring one of his paintings, observing it, letting it guide you is to taste life in all its intensity. You don’t find any white spaces in Leon’s art pieces. In addition, all of them reflect the great theatre of life with its lights and shadows. To each one the artist dedicates half of the canvas. This is his understanding of life. We suffer but we can also be equally happy. All this he highlights with the use of golden colour, characteristic of all his works. This way he clarifies his message: to live life with great passion.
