Armin Baumgarten (born 25 September 1967 in Wolfsburg) is a German painter and sculptor.



Armin Baumgarten spent his childhood in Lower Saxony and dealt early with drawing and painting, supported by his art teacher Wilfried Wöhler also with etching . After graduating from Humboldt High School in Gifhorn and community service in Brunswick, he started there in 1989 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Braunschweig the study of Painting.His teachers were Hinnerk Schrader, Karl Moller, D. Arwed Gorella and Hermann Albert, his master pupil in 1996 he had been . In 1995 he was a founding member of the group of painters named “convention”. 1996 marriage to the painter Birte Kulms. In 1997 he received a scholarship to live and work of the association Künstlerhaus Meinersen in Meinersen . In 1998 he moved to Düsseldorf . There he created next new topics in painting. From 2003 he developed also first sculptures ( bronze casting). 2007 was made by him a cross image for Tersteegenkirche in Düsseldorf.


The works of Armin Baumgarten arise beyond the antagonism between the figurative and the abstract, i.e. this picture is not borrowed from the optical reality, but establishes itself within a picturesque charging process on the scene as a separate image reality. From the painting originally thin liquid Armin Baumgarten came to a very tactile, impasto ductus gain by the motifs a physical presence. This development process resulted since 2003 in the study of sculpture that is created first in a lengthy process of work up and ablation of gypsum and is then implemented as a bronze casting. The paintings and sculptures revolve archaic basic, essential topics such as the head, figure and figure group, countryside and mountain or tree. This image is compressed in the work process in a reduced to the essential iconic shape that is possible directly sensual and physically not only visible to the viewer, but also experienced.
