The fascination of color
lngolf Kühn – was born in Vetschau (former German Democratic Republic DDR) in 1953. He did not find his love for art and his unlimited creative genius until a later time. An event that made him unable to work brought him to the final turning point in his life. In the year 1985 he made his first attempts at approaching painting which seemed difficult because he had no experience or knowledge of technique and color theory. Nevertheless, in this process of discovery there was something that fascinated him and encouraged him to keep going. Thus, painting was a new „instrument“ for him to get back into the flow of expressing himself and to feel alive again. THE FASCINATION OF COLOR captivated and never let go of him from this point forward. Ever since, he has created a lot of beautiful works of art which have gained many admirers over the years.

In 1991, after the DDR ended, Ingolf Kühn wanted to sell American cars. Big American cars, typically with much brass for endless roads. Why shouldn’t it work in Brandenburg? It was the time of a general upheaval that came with the fall of the Berlin wall. The everyday living conditions changed radically, and nothing was the same anymore. He knew more about cars than most people but nothing about the business that went on in the West. Of course, that did not prevent him from crossing the Atlantic and buying exceptional cars in America. A bank loaned him money and lngolf Kühn created a “nobel-car dealership”. He had dreamt of this idea and thought it would be quite successful because potential buyers of these types of cars could be very wealthy. After a while, he felt it was time to think of something that combined his passion for cars and his love for painting. In the end, this idea turned into a touch of genius that made him internationally famous. He devoted himself to the art of the air brush and has clients from all over the world.
