Seine Ausbildung zum Grafiker und Designer absolvierte Siegfried Lehmann an der Fachschule für
angewandte Kunst und der Fachhochschule für Graphik und Design in Düsseldorf.
Seit mehr als 20 Jahren ist er freiberuflicher Künstler und Graphiker mit eigenem Atelier. Seine
Arbeitsschwerpunkte sind Öl- und Acrylbilder, 3D-Art sowie Skulpturen aus Holz und Kunststoff.
In seinen Arbeiten setzt Siegfried Lehmann immer wieder Ideen aus der alltäglichen Realität, kombiniert
mit Anregungen aus dem Unterbewusstsein, in geometrisch-poetische Kompositionen von großer
Prägnanz um. Die Themen unserer Zeit spiegeln sich dabei in seinen Werken, dargestellt in seiner
phantastisch-realistisch-subjektiven Bilderwelt. Dabei ist er nicht auf einen Kunststil oder eine
Kunstrichtung festgelegt, vielmehr zeichnen sich seine Werke durch Vielfältigkeit, Variationsreichtum und
das Zusammenspiel verschiedener Stilrichtungen, kombiniert zu Neuem noch nie dagewesenen, aus. Sein
Spektrum reicht von abstrakten oder grafischen Darstellungen bis hin zum Surreal – Skurrilen. In seinen
neusten Werken hat Siegfried Lehmann sich intensiv sowohl mit der 3D-Art als auch mit der figurativen
Darstellung auseinandergesetzt und so einen ganz neuen Aspekt in seine Bilder gebracht.
Seine Arbeiten präsentiert Siegfried Lehmann auf internationalen Kunstmessen, in Museen und Galerien
unter anderem in Peking, Miami, New York City, Las Vegas, Florenz und Daugavpils (Mark Rothko Art

SIEGFRIED LEHMANN is a German artist, author of paintings where ideas taken from everyday reality
fell in fantastic settings. A genuine painting where shapes and colors give voice to the suggestions of the
unconscious in a geometric-poetic transcription of great incisiveness. Equipped with an extrovert
temperament, like of a free spirit that move away from him too narrow labels, the artist comes to eclectic
miscellanies of ideas and styles, from which take shape worlds of shimmering graphic patterns. Through a
methodical desecration of the figurative tradition Lehmann inserts into the two-dimensionality of the
support, the dynamic effect of the movement.
The sparkling of colors and lights intertwines in a frantic dance that makes resonate each shade. In
Siegfried Lehmann’s artworks, the eye of the observer is literally mesmerized by the repetition of vivid
geometric patterns, unknowingly slipping into the psychedelic worlds of an easygoing and colorful

Siegfried Lehmann accomplishes a lively narrative through captivating compositions filled with geometric
and graphic art components. Appealing to the viewer’s subconscious, Mr. Lehmann navigates his paintings
to reach a balance between the figurative and the abstract. Seeking to establish an alternate reality in
which social relationships are prioritized over digital technologies, Mr. Lehmann’s art investigates the
human condition through his distinctive artistic identity.
Eagerly accepting the challenge of finding a solution to artistic problems posed by both his imagination
and by his mediums, Mr. Lehmann’s subject matters may begin with realistic images, but may also
include fantastical, whimsical, or abstracted forms. By combining multiple images, subjects and symbols,
then revealing them from different viewpoints, unexpected and imaginative results are obtained.
Contrasting organic forms create complex relationships as they overlap within an abstracted dynamic
background, and there is a subtle change of color and density as his hard-edge band styled produces
vibrations and illusions of spatial expansion. Cool and expert, Mr. Lehmann judiciously planned
geometric paintings coordinate a close color rapport with considerable finesse, and his spectral colors exist
independently in space, without altering the over-all forms of the surface, or the complexities of the
With a contemporary visual vocabulary, Siegfried Lehmann’s oeuvre manifests the dynamic placement of
colors and shapes in a carefully controlled aesthetic environment. Building an atmosphere with simple,
clean lines infused with variety of textures, shapes, and layers, this gifted artist utilizes his background in
design to create an active image where line, color and form coalesce and float freely in space, creating a
complex relationship between the individual elements and the overall composition.
Letting the work speak for itself, each painting is open to the interpretation and the impression of the
viewer. Excelling in technicality and precision, the complexity and thoughtfulness of each composition
has earned Siegfried Lehmann recognition both within Germany and internationally. Exploring the
mediums of oil, acrylic, and 3-Dimensional art, Mr. Lehmann has presented his artwork at a multitude of
international art fairs, museums, and galleries around the world.
