Peter HohbergerBorn 1939, former actor, now a sculptor and painter.

Born in Silesia on November 12, 1939, sculptor Peter Hohberger dealt as a child with the drawing and modeling. After a successful career as an actor he has devoted himself for many years of painting and the visual arts. He sees himself consciously as a sculptor in the classical sense.

His aesthetic basic understanding is shaped by nature; it is the beauty of the human body itself that fascinated him and he reacted by modernism untouched in his files and portrait busts. His models, he does not deny: They are the masters of ancient Greece, Auguste Rodin and especially Arno Breker, who taught him personally. Of all he has learned, and not just in the accuracy with which he knows to represent the beauty of the female body.

Hohberger said: "art that enriches life and happy people survived any kind of so-called “Spirit of the time".

Marble powder bound by a polymer. Artificial marble is characterized by a fine white surface that comes very close to marble.
