Leon Löwentraut

The 25-year-old Leon Löwentraut has made a name for himself in the international art world with impressive speed: His art is in demand worldwide - New York, London, Vienna, Venice, Copenhagen - and his exhibition openings are considered spectacular. His works have already been shown at the Kunstforum Wien, the Palazzo Medici Riccardi in Florence, the historic Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana in Venice, the Osthaus Museum in Hagen, the Pushkin Museum in St. Petersburg, and galleries in New York, London, Copenhagen, and Singapore. Leon Löwentraut inspires, irritates, polarizes - the public and the media. He is the face of a young generation of artists who are giving the scene new momentum. The business magazine Forbes chose him among the "30 under 30" (the 30 most important personalities under 30). Incidentally, Löwentraut convinced the Forbes jury not only with his powerful, expressive works, but also with his art actions such as the "Global Goals" and his "Global Gate," one of the largest mobile sculptures in the world, which stood at Frankfurt Airport until May 2021. Both art actions deal with the topic of "sustainability," interpret it artistically and carry it into the world. According to Forbes, this makes the Düsseldorf native one of the young Germans who have achieved outstanding things in 2020 and are working to change society for the better.Löwentraut, who has been painting since the age of 7, lives and works near Düsseldorf.
