Paul Pretzer's graphic exhibition

On August 29 at 7:00 p.m., a graphic art exhibition by Paul Pretzer, a painter from Berlin, will be opened at the Estonian Print and Paper Museum. The artist is staying in Tartu as a guest artist, participating in Tartu artist-in-residence program.

The exhibition displays the graphics that have been made during his residency as well as the earlier creation. At the same time, you can browse through the catalog where you can get an overview of Paul's entire work.

In the short time that Paul Pretzer, a Berlin painter from Estonia, has spent in Tartu, he quickly got attracted to this town. He rides a bike, goes fishing by the Emajõgi and creates graphic works at the Print and Paper Museum. As an artist, he likes to pick out different known motifs from art history and put them together on the same work. This creates a kind of hypnotic surreal world and a completely new context emerges. In the course of his artistic residency, the accustomed painting technique was replaced by the technique of etching, while still retaining surreal figurativeness.

The exhibition remains open until September 17.

The Exhibition is supported by Tartu Print and Paper Museum, Tartu Town, Tartu Cultural Endowment
