Michael Triegel - Discordia concors

The serene paintings of Michael Triegel (b. 1968) seamlessly combine Christian motifs with myths and legends. Their subject matter and execution are reminiscent of the Renaissance.

From 1990 to 1995 Triegel studied at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig. The college is closely associated with the Neue Leipziger Malerschule, a German artistic movement set up after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Members of the association largely work in the same form language, though their techniques vary widely.

Michael Triegel’s work is very refined. Using mixed media, he paints in a highly elegant style, and his rendering of fabrics is unparalleled.
