Andora: Sculpture "Dr. Pop", version in polyresin

Andora said during a conversation: "We are living in a very disciplined social order, which barely allows one to escape or to assert one's opinion. It is a pity... and one should deem this figure maybe as a sort of art anarchist..."
The crocodile head is a reflection on the solitariness of people - caught for into the dependence of society and also striving unfalteringly for individuality. This sculpture symbolizes the victory over conventions. With open arms - the hand showing the Victory sign - it invites its owner to overcoming. For Andora, the most popular form of approaching convention is the retreat to the isle of own phantasy and imagination. What each one does in and by one's dreams, "Dr. Pop" achieves with his "Brain Machine", which reflects his wishes always in the form of virtual images on his "Cyber Glasses". This so Andora sculpture is his most popular one, even in its name: "Dr. Pop". 
Strictly limited world edition of 136 exemplars, serially numbered and signed. ars mundi exclusive edition in polyresin: 99 exemplars. Hand-painted according to the original design of the artist. Format: (W/H/D) 40 x 86 x 30 cm.

Andora was born in East Berlin in 1957. Because of "disobedience" against the fatherland, he was sentenced to one-year imprisonment in 1976. After his release he worked as a gravedigger, heater, sexton, elevator operator ... and broke down in the system. Andora came to the "West" and after finishing his studies undertook, "the attempt to become a right member of society" once again …

A really creative period in his life began in 1985. After the first images in neo-expressive style, which show the search for his own language, he started the development of an independent visual language and extension of the chosen means of artistic expression. This was followed by individual and group exhibitions in Germany, other European countries and the USA. At the same time he began the most spectacular "projects for the conversion of contemporary art in everyday life", which got a feedback from a large audience. These projects have been developed in close cooperation with the industry, where the artistic freedom always remained paramount.

He created "the fastest piece of art in the world" with a hand-painted Formula 1 racing cars, designed to combat jacket for a gentleman boxer Henry Maske, painted a Russian Poljot rocket, which entered the history of art in space. For the Expo in Hannover in 2000, he designed a huge Low Saxony Horse.

Andora now lives and works in Hannover. His works are presented mainly in European and American collections. The lengthy cooperation with his fellow artists Della, which started in 1956 in Hannover, since the beginning of 1999 got official character and a name: "Studio 4".

Graphic or sculpture edition that was initiated by ars mundi and is available only at ars mundi or at distribution partner licensed by ars mundi.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

Collective term for all casting processes that ars mundi carries out with the help of specialized art foundries.

Cast stone
Equivalent of artificial marble, with the difference that the substitute stone in powder form is used instead of marble powder.

Cold cast bronze
Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

ARA wooden copy
In order to guarantee absolute fidelity to the original, an artificially manufactured imitation wood is used as a base material which has typical wood characteristics: density, workability, color and surface structure.

Ceramic casting
As a rule castable clay is used in ceramic casting, which then is fired and possibly glazed. Plaster molds are often used instead of the usual rubber molds in ceramic casting and in porcelain production.

Bronze casting
In this case, the thousand-year-old lost-wax technique is used. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.
