Marcel Buehler

Marcel Buehler was born in 1969, Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany. He lives and works in Berlin, Germany. He finished his undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate studies at the Academy of Visual Arts (HGB) in Leipzig, Germany. He is a conceptual artist whose work uses humor and irreverence to investigate themes of contemporary life. He relates his art process to traveling, even if the way there is arduous, the end result allows him to reflect back on the journey and feel more alive. His practice encompasses a broad range of media yet two primary focuses have crystalized over the years: sculptured light and collage.
