Ottmar Hörl, a multidisciplinary German artist, is internationally recognized for his avant-garde style and his daring to undertake colossal projects. Sculptures, serial sculpture installations, photographs and conceptual objects: its goal is to offer a type of art accessible to all, to democratize sculpture in particular by exhibiting gigantic and radical projects in public spaces. Today, it is his garden gnome Ben, presented in Cologne for the first time in 2005, that contributes to his great fame: his installations are exhibited regularly in European capitals. Keen on the democratization of art, he uses simple materials such as PVC. Very invested in the world of Fine Arts, he was one of the founding members of the Nuremberg Academy in 1999, of which he became president in 2005. He has been rewarded with numerous awards for his great creativity and his radical and offensive vision of promoting the democratization of sculpture. He was also a founding member of the Fomalhaut group in 1985: a design, art and architecture studio where he contributed to the design in collaboration with architects of impressive design pieces such as Living Room: a contemporary residence in the medieval center of Gelnhause in Germany.
