Michael Müller

Born 1970 in Ingelheim am Rhein, DE
Lives and works in Berlin, DE

Michael Müller draws from the themes of linguistics, numerical signs, stellar- and solar-systems, the impacts and effects of which, although based on empirical results, are largely invented by the artist himself. Müller is widely known for his drawing and work in writing, although he also works across other mediums such as sculpture, installation and painting. His work has been exhibited at the Kunst-Werke Berlin and is represented in the public collections of the MOCA, Los Angeles, the Kunstmuseum Bonn and the Museum Biedermann in Donaueschingen in Germany and others.
