Lives and works in Seoul, Korea

German artist Ingo Baumgarten is interested in commenting, often ironically, on banal aspects of everyday life
by representing them as motives of his art. He is interested in demonstrating his individual view of the world around him without glorifying or condemning it.

He would consider his work as a painter successful if it enables the spectator to adopt a more complex and altered perception of his surroundings afterwards. Baumgarten uses paint rather than photographs to portray these objects
and details because it provides a better medium for formulating an individual point of view.
This point of view, created by the artist's hand, has a personal and human quality about it that intimately connects
with the spectator.
