Galerie Michael Haas is presenting a selection of work by the painter Wolfe von Lenkiewicz including his latest series Delirious Picasso.
The British artist Wolfe von Lenkiewicz is known for his artistic reconfigurations of well-known iconic images selected from the history of art, from Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa to Pablo Picasso’s Guernica. Carefully examining the linearity of historical perspective embedded within our visual culture, he has been described as both ‘an unbound geneticist turned artist’ and ‘a contemporary iconoclast’ whose art practice occupies a space outside of history to become a fulcrum between different ages.
Opening: Thursday, 8 October 2015, 6-9 pm
Galerie Michael Haas, Niebuhrstraße 5, 10629, Berlin
“The large-scale paintings of British artist Wolfe von Lenkiewicz made their U.S. debut this week in New York’s Upper East Side. Set against the backdrop of the magnificent Academy Mansion on East 63rd Street, Von Lenkiewicz’s paintings make the perfect pairing to the home William Ziegler Jr. built in 1921.”

Picasso Among The Geishas: A New Show Transports The Record-Shattering Modernist To Edo-Period Japan
“Specially commissioned from the British artist Wolfe von Lenkiewicz, a technical whiz whose mashups of classic paintings make for delightful pop art-history quizzes, the artworks that dominate the show fuse instantly recognizable ‘samples’ from Picasso’s oeuvre with paintings done in the style of the geisha portraitist Kikugawa Eizan and other 19th-century icons. There are also several sprightly takes on the Andalusian master by George Condo and Richard Prince, together with several small works on paper and a collage by Picasso himself.”
– Andrew M. Goldstein, Artspace, May 12, 2015
DELIRIOUS PICASSO is the first showing of works by the British artist Wolfe von Lenkiewicz in New York. Known for his reconfigurations of well-known art historical imagery and contemporary visual culture, his latest series of paintings juxtaposes Picasso’s oeuvre with the art of ukiyo-e to create a surprisingly harmonious marriage between East and West through a dramatic and riotous explosion of colour and style.
Wolfe von Lenkiewicz’s works Saltimbanques, 2014, The Frugal Repast, 2014 and The Smokers, 2009 will be included in the upcoming survey exhibition ‘Picasso In Contemporary Art’ at the Deichtorhallen, Hamburg.
