art and living 2021



Roman Lang

In 2021, after a long break, we have again implemented art projects as part of "kunstundwohnen".

For the art and living project in 2021, the artist Roman Lang chose the stairwell at Lutfridstraße 7 and realized his colourful, illusionistic mural "ELEVATORESK" there, which clearly borrows from Op Art and, like this, creates spatial structures solely through painting " pretends". Roman Lang plans colored rectangular bodies that seem to jut out diagonally from the wall to the front or upwards. This spatial effect will be seen most clearly when going up or down the stairwell, thus absorbing the movements of the residents. The color palette moves between muted blue and orange tones, light turquoise and green as well as violet and red fields.

The artist Roman Lang, born in 1976 in Neumarkt/ Oberpfalz, lives and works in Düsseldorf and Bonn. He studied with Ben Willikens at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and was a scholarship holder of the Studienstiftung. Lang has participated in numerous international solo and group exhibitions.


With these interventions in close proximity to Karim Noureldin's "Tupelo", Esther Stocker's "Geometria" and Jan van der Ploeg's "Wall Painting No. 412”, which were also created in the Kunstundwohnen series, the “Lutfridstraße art district” will be enriched by another art object.
