GAMA

GAMA

Born: 1977

Hometown: Baotou, Mongolia

Lives and Works: Berlin, Germany

 

Gama was born in Mongolia grew up in the nomadic tradition in which shamanism still plays an important role. In 2002 he enrolled in the Karlsruhe Academy of Art to study oil painting under Gustav Kluge. During this period he was exposed to the figurative painting of the New Leipzig School and found an unexpected convergence between the folk-lore and rituals of his own country of birth and the imaginative traditions of Germany. Memories of shamanism coexist with figures that seem to have stepped out of Grimm’s fairy tales. As an outsider he was exposed to the extraordinary richness of contemporary German art which ranges from the conceptual rigor of Gerhard Richter to the expressionist style of Georg Baselitz, eventually the matter-of-fact depiction of recognizable events and objects and wild flights of the imagination.
