Erich Paulsen

Erich Paulsen was born in a small village near Berlin. Erich showed a prodigious talent for paintings as he was growing up, but his father urged him to train in a "normal" profession and so he became a varnisher and whitewasher.

His foreman in the firm he worked for painted landscapes in his leisure time and the young Paulsen used to watch him. Paulsen was very eager to try to do a painting but he had no money to buy paints or brushes. So one day he took clandestinely some of the colours, but he could not take the brushes which the foreman kept in a separate place. So he used the scraper spatula which he normally took to remove old layers of colour and he painted a landscape with houses. When the foreman saw this he gave him a big threshold, then he looked at Paulsen’s first paintings and said, ‘You are much more talented than I. You can take all my colours, you will have good success.’

This was the start of a very successful artistic career, which led Paulsen to the Meisterschule fur Malerie up to one of the most known artists.

In general Erich Paulsen prefers to paint landscapes and city scenes. The vibrancy of his palette knife, give his paintings a particular flair that is completely unique in the field of contemporary art. At once, Paulsen continues the legacy of impressionistic paintings, and brings his work into the modern age. Critically Paulsen has attracted high acclaim throughout the world, His work has been recognised in a number of exhibitions from new York to Sydney and enjoys a growing collective of serious collectors.
