Portrait of the artist Helge Leiberg

About Helge Leiberg

Helge Leiberg, born in Dresden, Germany in 1954, studied at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts. Music is a recurring theme in the work of the multimedia artist, who realised numerous musical projects with A. R. Penck, among others.

Helge Leiberg's world of pictures and sculptures consists of symbolic figures that are slender, with overlong limbs and expansive gestures. Their dancing gestures express pure life: sometimes oblivious, sometimes interacting, they express affection and aversion, struggle and union. His masterly line management and virtuoso depiction of movement characterise his work. Leiberg draws inspiration from the influence of painting, dance and music. He played in a band with A.R. Penck and realised performances with Christa Wolf at the Salzburg Festival.

In 2023, he will receive the honorary prize of the Brandenburg Minister-President as part of the Brandenburg Art Prize, which is awarded by the Märkische Oderzeitung and the Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg.

Helge Leiberg was awarded the Brandenburg Art Prize for Painting in 2013. His works can be found in the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation as well as in the Würth Collection.
