COMMENTS and Critics:
Georg Kiehn, the “Storyteller Painter”, renowned for his original talent, versatility, and professional technique. Possessor of a unique style, bared to us in his paintings through his worldwide timeless thematic. Each one of his magnificent canvasses, makes him a superb universally understood painter, as he speaks of different cultures and far away worlds with his pallet, his elusive and mysterious figures, added to his personal overall mystical and engimatic pictorial language.
His works have been acquired by Art Collectionists in Greece, Argentina, Mexico,Uruguay, Germany and Bolivia.
Recently, he started with his original personalized paintings, as a “Storyteller Artist”. Having a personal interview, the client tells his deep dreams,his most magical life stories, his wishes. And Georg as a magician, paints these words in his own fantastic, colorfull and dreamy Chagallian style.
The client´s dreams usually come true...
