Julia Benz

The artist Julia Benz has left her beautiful and playful artwork in our Superior Plus room 712. She created a little jungle with exotic plants for you to discover.

“A painting begins once the brush touches the canvas, not with an idea,” says Julia Benz about her work. Her pictures are sometimes representational but often abstract. Her figures are neither moral nor practical message-bearers, but rather pictures of fun. “When we travel nowadays we are overwhelmed by fake realities. I find simple moments stimulating and deep. I’m happy to place the banal centre stage in my pictures, because it is this that is actually wonderful,” she explains. Julia Benz studied painting at the University of Arts in Düsseldorf. She is currently working and studying in Berlin at the University of Arts.
