Paul Wunderlich

The fact that the artist Paul Wunderlich may rank among the greatest surrealists of the world becomes apparent by looking at his work. Personal topics, above all the erotism – which is incorporated in a subtle way in the sculptures -, as well as political and sensational motives make his work unique. The influence of Greek mythology supports the unmistakable physiognomy of his protagonists.
Paul Wunderlich meets the demand of the market in making art accessible to the broad public. The production of multiple sculptures and lithographies makes it possible that his internationally respected, high-ranking Oeuvre is carried into the whole world.
