Portrait of the artist Thomas Jastram

Thomas Jastram

Whether portraits, nudes or horses – the German sculptor Thomas Jastram knows how to emphasise the characteristic features of his motifs in his stone, plaster and bronze sculptures. "He always strives to express the resemblance and the charisma of the model in the clay," says his former professor, Helmut Heinze, about him.

Jastram, born in Rostock in 1959, graduated from the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts in 1985, since then he has worked as a freelance artist and had several teaching jobs, including at the Hamburg Technical School of Art.

In addition to various exhibitions, he has created numerous works for public spaces, e.g. a fountain in Ribnitz-Damgarten or the memorial for the victims of Nazi justice in Torgau, Saxony.
