Christian Manss was born in 1978 in Eisenach, Germany. He studied in Leipzig, lived in Zurich from 2007 and moved to Dresden in 2010. He worked also from 2012-2015 in Oberhausen, where he got a studio grant for 3 years. He has exhibited in Switzerland, Great Britain, Germany, Austria, France and the United States.

The central concern of Manss is the aesthetic exploration of the boundary of the transition between antagonistic classes and therefore their resolution, sometimes pointedly with disassembling supposedly fundamental assumptions. - The viewer is challenged to set aside their pre-judgment and to follow his invitation to open questioning of an extended horizon.

The particular focus of his paintings in the “Urban Zoo” series is on animal boundaries, the marking of zones, surfaces and signs in the urban landscape. In a mixture of photography, collages, graphics and painting, he puts together existing natural conditions to form a new painting.

This artwork is wired and ready to hang. The sides of the artwork are painted, and it does not require framing. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included.
