Painter Tobias Mannewitz (born in Oldenburg in 1979) has been working as one of the few full-time German concept artists for computer games since 2003. For his main occupation he draws and designs virtual environments and characters, which have to work within a set game system and are then realised by 3-D modellers. Since 2002 Tobias Mannewitz has been living in Berlin. He studied in Halle, Leipzig and Potsdam. The series “Palast der Republik” (Palace of the Republic) is his first painting cycle in oil.
Opening night: 12 September, 2008, 7pm.
