Marcel Buehler (B.1969, Germany) lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Buehler finished his Undergraduate and Postgraduate studies at the Academy of Visual Arts (HGB) in Leipzig, Germany. Buehler is a conceptual artist whose work uses humour and irreverence to investigate and comment on topics of contemporary life. His practice encompasses a broad range of media yet two primary focuses have crystalized over the years: sculptured light and collage.
