Armin Boehm, born in Aachen, Germany in 1972, studied at the Staatliche Kunstakademie Düsseldorf with Konrad Klapheck and Jörg Immendorff. He now lives and works in Berlin.
With a mesmerising use of color that draws visible psychological relationships across his compositions, Boehm embeds his subjects into a prismatic world of figuration, symbolism, and cultural reference. In his works on canvas, he uses the technique of collage to conjoin fragments of paint, fabric, paper or metal, substances from which his subjects emerge, almost sculpturally materialising in concrete space.
Boehm’s work was featured in exhibitions in many famous galleries across multiple countries like Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, the United States and other, including Kunstverein Braunschweig, Braunschweig (2009); Me Collectors Room, Stiftung Olbricht, Berlin (2018); Städel Museum, Frankfurt (2012); Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt (2011) and K21 - Kunstsammlung NRW, Düsseldorf (2010). His works have also been exhibited at Art Basel Hong Kong, the Armory Show in New York, Art Basel Miami Beach, Art Cologne and other major international art fairs.
