Bernd Koberling born 1938 in Berlin/Germany. He lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

Bernd Koberling ranks among the most influential figures in the German art scene. He rose to prominence particularly during the 1980s as “co-father” of the so-called “Neue Wilden”, whose subjective and expressive visual language stood in opposition to the prevailing highly intellectual and conceptual art of the time. Koberling discovered his lifelong theme – landscape – at an early stage in his career, and over the ensuing 50 years has remained true to it, in his continual quest for the quintessence of colour and image.
