Maximilian Wiedemann is based in London and Miami. He constantly sells out shows in Paris, New York and Miami has strong representation in LA and Berlin. Maximilian Wiedemann’s work examines the perplexities of grand industry against the trials and tribulations of the less advantaged.
Maximilian Wiedemann, in other words, is the modern day Robin Hood of Art; knowledge and access to the world of the Rich and Famous, coupled with his biting wit, and natural born sarcasm, has given him a unique vision and voice in the Art world. His artwork is a commentary on the modern day world, making art an accessible medium in which to appreciate beauty and irony simultaneously.
Maximilian Wiedemann has taken the often intimidating world of Art and made it accessible; through his eyes we have a window into a world which few experience, and even fewer understand.
Through Max’s words we are able to see the irony in our own celebrity obsessed world driven by iconic figures, and idealized images. Through his hands we are given a window into a world of beauty and art without the pretense Max Wiedemann’s experiences are his inspiration, and the world his muse; by using iconic industrialist symbols in marriage with palates
of bright, sunlit colors, and satirical language, Max has been able to accomplish what many have tried, and few have succeeded at. Max is a fearless pioneer who pushes the boundaries of popular culture, and relentlessly pursues innovation and technical perfection in the artwork which has become an extension of his persona.
Maximilian Wiedemann was born to an English Mother, and German Father, growing up in a home with such diverging personalities and cultures was a strong influence on Max in his youth. Max’s talent and passion for expressing his thoughts showed early signs of promise in his work as a graffiti artist. Max’
s enthusiasm, energy, and need to express his thoughts found an outlet in many unconventional ways, mostly facilitated by a can of spray paint, and an inspirational location; nothing was too small or too large for Max’s art work.As a young adult Max entered the corporate world of advertising, leaving behind his childhood passions, and choosing the professional world for its security, and the confines of adult responsibilities. Working in Advertising was an outlet for Max Wiedemann’s sharp intellect, and somewhat of a creative outlet, but most importantly, his 10 yrs in advertising left him with the knowledge that art is a powerful medium in which to communicate and advertise what’s relevant in our world. Through trial and error, many years of exploration, and research Max was able to design a unique technique which allowed him to use a combination of graffiti paint (street art) with modern day themes, iconic figures, and a traditional canvas to create something revolutionary, thought provoking, and relevant to all. Maximilian Wiedemann is not a traditional artist, he’s not a graffiti artist, he’s not mainstream, or safe! Maximilian Wiedemann’s work, his passion, and his art are a mirror of society, a glimpse of what is taboo and thoughts that dare not be verbalized. This revolutionary artist moves us through dynamic images, and thought provoking phrases; he takes a leap of faith and chooses the path of passion and the unknown, rather than safety and conformity. What makes Maximilian Wiedemann’s work relative, and yet iconic is his ability to capture an era, a timeless moment, or a lost icon. Through his desire to innovate, his art is always pushing the boundaries of traditional
painting, and through his passion to create we are witness to a talent that has yet to be reined in, or defined.
