Joerg Lozek was born in 1971 in Chemnitz, Germany. He currently lives and works in Leipzig. Pursued his studies at the Leipzig Art Academy, now internationally known as the epicenter of the vibrant “New Leipzig School,” which emerged around 2000. Joerg Lozek, like other artists from this informal scene, develops the same interest in history, architecture and an underlying questioning of socialist aesthetics and figurative painting.
He exhibited in 2002 and 2003 at the LIGA gallery, a now famous alternative gallery space in Berlin, which was the first exhibition venue for many artists from Leipzig. Since then he exhibited in Cologne (Galerie Binz und Kraemer), in London (Rhodes+Mann Gallery), in Los Angeles (Sandroni Rey Gallery), in Paris (Galerie Daniel Templon) and in various group shows.
