Carola Paschold

The painter Carola Paschold is an attentive chronicler of our time. She portrays contemporary celebrities such as Angela Merkel, Johnny Depp, Marilyn Monroe, Wassily Kandinsky and also the people in the street. Paschold knows how to bring out the features of her models in bright colours and with intense contrasts.

Her paintings are often reduced to a few colour tones and look like pop art prints. She paints them in her personal artist expression, which is quite classical with oil on canvas based on analogue photographic models.

In 1982, Paschold completed her graphic design studies and worked for several years in advertising agencies. Since 1989, she has been a freelance artist and has been featured in many solo and group exhibitions as well as collections. Since 1997, she has been the director of the Freie Kunstschule Korschenbroich, Germany.
