Portrait of the artist Jürgen Born

Jürgen Born

"Colours that seem to have just been applied."

Self-forgetting improvising musicians as an autonomous part of a large sound picture. Jürgen Born (born in 1955) paints music in brilliant oil colours using his unmistakable, highly expressive visual language: the atmosphere of the session is palpable again. Source materials are memories of concerts or sometimes historical photos. The German painter has devoted himself to jazz and fused music and painting.
