Maximilian (Milan,1969)

Maximilian started painting as a child and despite his art school training, he has maintained an instinctive approach to his work, letting his subconscious dictate his subject matter. The recurring figure of a pre-adolescent child, neither male nor female, lends a coherence to this free-form universe. Since moving to Paris, France, in 2012, his work has focused on that unripe phase of human existence when gender is still undefined and sexuality has yet to be expressed. The melancholy and reflective characters he portrays are experiencing the often difficult and painful transition from childhood games and innocence to the first upsets of adolescence and adulthood.

Youth, Sex and Death

"To me, being an artist comes from a deep-rooted necessity. It's a natural way to transform your emotions, fears and desires into a concrete object like a painting. It's the representation of an idea, using a language made up of images – much of it channeled directly from my subconscious, with little in the way of filters."
