Uli Aschenborn - Hans Ulrich Aschenborn (6 September 1947 in Johannesburg South Africa - ) is a well known animal painter in Southern Africa like his father Dieter Aschenborn and his grandfather Hans Anton (Hans) Aschenborn have been. Which can easily be verified by numerous newspaper articles which can be found on the internet. The three Aschenborns Uli, his father Dieter and his grandfather Hans Anton belong to the best 10,000 artists in the world from the last two centuries and their art to the world cultural heritage. He is especially known for his dynamic wildlife paintings of animals in full charge or flight. The musea in Windhoek and Swakopmund (Namibia) have artwork of Uli as well as the National Art Gallery of Namibia.
The Namibian media branded Uli Aschenborn’s new style “Amazing Changing Art“, because his new creations change – be it by themselves or because the viewer changes their position. For his “chameleon-paintings“, which change color and content if the angle of view is changed, he only needs sand and paint on his canvas. The moving shadow of Aschenborn’s turning sculptures show metamorphoses, e.g. the aging of a boy to an old man eventually to a skeleton (see video of such a 'Sculpture-Morph' to the right). The images within his “Morph-Cubes“ distort in a grotesque way while the onlooker moves. Uli's paintings are inspired by not only his roots in Namibia, but by European liveliness complemented by cohesive landscapes - also by abstract art.
