Jürgen K. Hultenreich grew up in Erfurt where he worked as a window dresser, musician, librarian and poetry reviewer. In 1966, after an escape attempt, he was imprisoned in Erfurt for six months, during which time he was forcibly admitted to the Mühlhausen-Pfafferode Psychiatric Clinic for three weeks. In 1985 he was allowed to leave the GDR.
He lives in Berlin-Wedding as a freelance writer. A few years ago Hultenreich rediscovered his love for painting and has since created a number of remarkable ink drawings.
After completing his apprenticeship as an architectural draughtsman in 1979-1982, Harald-Alexander Klimek studied communication design and graphic design at the Fachhochschule für Gestaltung in Darmstadt-Mathildenhöhe from 1983-1988, was a Fulbright scholarship holder in the United States in 1988 and studied painting and printmaking at the Pratt Institute in New York City from 1988-1990. In 1990 he graduated as Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.).
From then on he lived as a freelance artist in Berlin, Speyer and now in his native Frankenthal.
After studying foreign languages (including German) from 1969-72 and working at the Mosfilm film studio, Nikolai Makarov, who was born in Moscow, moved to East Berlin in 1975. After studying history at the Humboldt University in Berlin, he became a master student of Prof. W. Klemke at the Academy of Arts in Berlin in 1984. Numerous exhibitions testify to his work.
His technique of transparently concealing the subjects of his work so that they are perceived as in the fog is characteristic.
