Life and career

Having studied theology in Bonn (Germany) Gerhard Mevissen was trained in social pedagogy and art therapy. Since 1976 Mevissen has started to focus on drawing and water color painting; in 1978/79 he produced drawings during a six-month lasting stay in Madrid. Hereby, his devotion to art became even stronger so that in 1999 he became an autonomous artist.
