Maximilian Arnold (b. 1987, Heidelberg) lives and works in Berlin. His practice can be understood as a layering and sequential process of transformation. Beyond paintbrushes, the artist uses a wide range of tools, such as rags, cutters, sandpaper, spatulas and everyday objects used for transfer printing. As a starting point, archives of images are cut up and appropriated in the image-making process through the act of collaging. In his work, a collage is not a means to an end, but its structural basis. Maximilian studied at Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Karlsruhe and Städelschule Frankfurt am Main.
