Ulf Puder was born in Leipzig, 1958 where he currently lives and works. Puder belongs to the first tier of famous graduates from the Leipziger Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst (Academy of Visual Arts) and along with his peer, Neo Rauch, he was on the forefront of painters creating a new vocabulary that combined the neo-realism prevalent in the former Eastern Germany with a surrealistic bent.

Ulf Puder’s paintings describe the artist’s unique imaginary world of desolate and haunting environments populated only by abandoned architecture and rendered in his signature muted palette. Tents, mobile homes, churches, train cars and other recreational spaces that should be occupied are left emptied and silent. Bungalows float on makeshift platforms within flooded streets; other structures seem to be in the midst of a storm. Natural disasters come to mind – places that have recently seen the unthinkable and have been left uninhabitable. [Extract : Ulf Puder : Kavi Gupta Gallery]
