  • First available, lavishly produced monograph of the young shooting star
  • Special features, augmented reality

Leon Löwentraut is celebrated in the art scene as an exceptional talent. He has been conquering the art world since his earliest youth. With dynamic forms and expressive colours, the 24-year-old Löwentraut creates works of art that sell out within a few days at international exhibitions.

The first comprehensive monograph on his life's work to date, it features 320 pages of his works with around 220 colour photographs. The impressively large format of 29 cm wide and 37 cm high creates the space to explore the many details in Löwentraut's paintings.

The illustrated book is colourful and lively, with a magenta velvet cover on the outside and the preprinted pages inside glowing orange, making it 100 per cent Löwentraut! That is the first impression you get when you open the book.

The great energy of Löwentraut's art has been captured in the production and content of the monograph. But the illustrated book can do much more: it offers the reader a deep insight into Löwentraut's work and also addresses the question of what drives the young artist and who influenced him. How does it feel to be an artist in our digital age, and what status does classically created art have in a global world dominated by the internet and social media?

One possible approach to bringing this discrepancy together is already on board in the illustrated book itself. With the teNeues app and your smartphone camera, you get access to exclusive video material about Leon's work on twelve appropriately marked pages. Those who scan the pages are presented with sequences in the studio, conversations about art and the art world, selected exhibition moments and impressions from the production of the book.

The 24-year-old Leon Löwentraut has made a name for himself in the international art world with impressive speed: his art is in demand worldwide, and his exhibition openings are considered spectacular. His works have already been shown at the Kunstforum in Vienna, the Palazzo Medici Riccardi in Florence, the history-steeped Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana in Venice, the Bavarian National Museum in Munich, the Osthaus Museum in Hagen, the Pushkin Museum in St. Petersburg, and galleries in New York, London, Copenhagen, and Singapore.
 
Leon Löwentraut inspires, irritates, polarizes - the public and the media. He is the face of a young generation of artists who are giving the scene new momentum. Leon Löwentraut emphasizes: "For me, art means freedom!" His goal: "To artistically overcome the limits of time."
 
The business magazine Forbes chose him among the "30 under 30" (the 30 most important personalities under 30). Incidentally, Löwentraut convinced the Forbes jury not only with his powerful, expressive works, but also with his art actions such as the "Global Goals" and his "Global Gate," one of the largest mobile sculptures in the world, which stood at Frankfurt Airport until May 2021. Both art actions deal with the topic of "sustainability," interpret it artistically and carry it into the world. According to Forbes, this makes the Düsseldorf native one of the young Germans who have achieved outstanding things in 2020 and are working to change society for the better.
 
Kaiserslautern University of Applied Sciences awarded the Düsseldorf painter a lectureship in the Virtual Design course for the winter semester 2021/2022. The topic was "Future Exhibition Design." The aim was to develop intelligent staging formats for the art sector in order to make analog art more tangible with digital possibilities and creative processes more comprehensible.
 
Löwentraut, who has been painting since the age of 7, lives and works near Düsseldorf.
