Hans-Peter Feldmann

Hans-Peter Feldmann (born 1941) is a German visual artist. A key figure in Conceptual Art, his approach to art is one of collecting, ordering and re-presenting. From artist’s books to multiple, amateur snapshots, toys and trivial works of art. In 2011 he won the $100,000 Hugo Boss Prize, for outstanding achievement, which he proceeded to change the money to individual $1 notes and tacked all of them to cover the walls of a Guggenheim showroom, next to the Frank Lloyd Wright ramp. In 2006 he painted a plaster copy of Michelangelo’s “David” in garish pink and yellow, at first glance into a kitsch icon, but one that also reminded about Renaissance artists, themselves inspired by antique sculptures but unaware that the marble statues were painted on at the time of the Greek Empire, albeit in surely more subtle colours.
