Serge Mangin: Painting "Act", Framed

Serge Mangin is known as a sculptor. But he is also an art illustrator and a watercolor master. He perceives his work primarily as sketches which help him to find ideas for plastic themes. However, the artist emphasizes, that such preparatory work emerges in the playful manner and therefore his sketches are characterised by convincing lightness. We can see it in the watercolor: he outlines his visions with a light scratch and in a result there appears both a complete work and a sketch, the "work in progress".

Reproduction on 308g Hahnemuhle handmade paper. Limited edition of 199 pieces signed and numbered. Framed in an elaborte silver solid wood strip with oblique passepartout, glazed. Size 42.5 x 34.5 cm.

Porträt des Künstlers Serge ManginSerge Mangin was born in 1947 in Paris and lived in Germany since 1968. Serge Mangin is a sculptor - and as such a highly renowned artists whose statues and portraits in wood, stone and marble can be found in many collections and many places in public space in Germany.

Serge Mangin was internationally known especially for his portrait busts (including Ernst Junger, Luciano Pavarotti and Henry Miller) and through the established as Unity Memorial in Berlin portrait trio of Helmut Kohl, Mikhail Gorbachev and George Bush senior. In his Munich Studio, he create large sculptures, driven by the words of the artist according to the Greek "Kuroi" - naked, standing statues, which are for Mangin quintessential upright, free Greek citizen.

Mangin is a loner in the art world - on the one hand, because in principle he makes no exhibitions (“the Word Vernissage is bad for me"), on the other hand, because he sees his art as a "revolt of the beauty" against the economic decadence of modern art: "My statues are always, there are free people, no consumers. There are always for me is a type of resistance."

Mangin is also a draftsman and water-colourist. He sees his work primarily as sketches for searching idea for plastic motifs. The artist stressed that such preparatory work is precisely because they arise without "burdening forced" in a playful manner often have a convincing ease.
