Jan Brauer


Jan Brauer works across various media, employing techniques such as paintings, collages and frottages. His oeuvre is often described as a dicompositioning process which ties situations and figures together again in layers through a unique graphical universe. Using diverse materials and techniques that conveys a contemporary visual language, Jan Brauer's work explores the subconscious – the unspoken drama in the seemingly ordinary.

Jan Brauer started his career with an education in print making and drawings at HGB/ Hochschule fürGrafik und Buchkunst Leipzig/ Germany and a finished design degree at the Burg Giebichenstein university of art and design in Halle/ Saale, Germany (1999 - 2006). He moved to Norway where he worked as designer and curator assistant for the international art & design program Ideal Lab. He soon started his own shows in Oslo, Bergen, Dale i Sunnfjord and Vevring as part of Norske Grafikere, the norwegian graphic artist association (2006 - 2013). After seven years, he moved to Graz/ Austria, where he lives today and runs his own art and design studio sort.
