We are pleased to announce the fifth solo exhibition 'Boulevard' by the Leipzig artist Sebastian Gögel of his most recent mid- and large-format paintings.

Corresponding to the real boulevard as a place of social interconnections and entanglement, Gögel's 'Boulevard' accommodates a cosmos of social prototypes in a telling display. Stylized portraits make their appearance next to abstract figurations. Radical attitudes and hierarchies are claimed and abandoned in his work. With hazardous intent, grotesquely morbid grimaces are united with blithely humorous elegance in a circus of crumbling beauty made up of urban facades.


Sebastian Gögel, born in Sonneberg, Thuringia, Germany, in 1978, lives and works in Leipzig. From 1997 to 2002, he studied painting/graphic arts at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig. From 2002 to 2005, he pursued his post-graduate studies with Prof. Sighard Gille.
