Björn Holzweg

Anyone who stays overnight in superior plus room 813 will find a beautiful painting by artist Björn Holzweg of a bear fishing for salmon.

The artist was born in Leipzig in 1979 and has been living in Hamburg since 2004. His art is characterised by paintings, drawings, sculptures and watercolours. The protagonists of his works tend to be wild animals, especially forest creatures. Björn Holzweg uses his experience to follow the journeys of wild animals, passing into unfamiliar landscapes. There he discovers and brings to light the stories of freedom fighters and revolutionaries. He turns his gaze to past and present happenings that lie off the beaten track and far from everyday life. For him it is not about communicating a specific message  – everyone is free to take what they will from his works.
