Laurentius Sauer

Who are you? What do you do?

I’m in love with painting and I also love to repeat things, again and again

Where are you from?

I’m from Germany Augsburg, raised in the back country between cows and chicken.

Your style in 3 words?

Street, roughness and clearness

What makes you different?

I’m not this artsy, I drink a lot of beer and talk bullshit all the time artist. I’m clear and I know what I want.

When did you decide to become an artist?

For me it’s more or less a process not a single decision. You grow up, you’re curious about your environment .. something like that. I like Beuys and his view on this particular topic.

What do you find most fascinating about the creative process?

The development in first priority. And I like the pure act of painting, to paint something in a new colour, to give the canvas (or whatever) a new voice, for me this is very romantic!

A few words about your favorite creation?

Speed, it’s all about not to think about, it’s about speed and roughness compared with a romantic/ironic view. But mostly its about speed, fast and on point.

Someone else’s work that inspired or inspires you…

There are a lot’s of guys I appreciate. Sergej Jensen is one of them, I saw a solo exhibition by him at Kunsthalle Baden-Baden curated by Johan Holten just fantastic! And I also want to mention Timur Lukas, we both started and finished studying together at ADBK Munich.

Who would you like to work with someday and why?

Oh maybe with Jeff Koons, cause I wanna sit on one of his huge Balloon Dogs. Must be a great feeling I guess.

A new project coming up or an idea you want to work on?

I’m working currently on flags. Flags for Europe, flags for the USA, flags for everyone. Everybody love flags.. more or less.

Put on your future vision glasses: What direction is our generation moving in, what will our world look like in 50 years?
