Sharmuhamed Tlegen was born in 1957 in Aksu, Kazakhstan. After studying sculpture and painting for 10 years at the Academy of Arts in Almaty, the artist worked for the "Künstlerbund" in Karaganda. At the same time he taught for 5 years at the University of Karaganda. His work focuses on portraits, landscapes and still lifes in various techniques. Especially for this exhibition, he created some new works (as well as sculptures) with a regional reference. The theme is "Heimatliche Impressionen aus Maifeld u. Eifel" - refreshingly colorful and intuitive-realistic.
