Christoph Poggeler, born in 1958 in Munster, studied with Professor Alfonso Huppi at the State Academy of Art in Dusseldorf. He had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Europe, Asia and Africa. Poggeler is also active as a curator and lecturer; in 2008, he received the Rhenish art Prize for his work.

He lives and works in Dusseldorf. The artist has a great name as a sculptor and painter. He has been working as a sculptor since 2001, with the project "plaster saint" and presents people sculptures on pillars. As a painter he seeks and finds materials, surfaces and memory trails, in which he engages his pictures and his sets. Based on grain surface of layer of wood, which have traces of use and an its own past, Poggeler developed a special form of painting, that creates a picture of reality on the basis of the structural interface found in, which is realistic and surprising at the same time. He thus produces images of such high plausibility that you might think they had always been there.

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.
