1937 – Present
Bavarian-born environment artist. His career began in the 1960s as a traditional painter in Paris. Soon he left this studio to return to his country home and experiment with the natural environment as art. His career trajectory was elevated in the year 2000 when Peter Gabriel contacted Nils-Udo to make an installation for the cover art of the album OVO.
Nils is considered an essential figure in the European “land art” movement.
Being a part of nature, being embedded in it and living on it, it appeared to me that acting in compliance with the laws of nature was something self-evident and necessary for survival.Nils-Udo
