In the 1970s, Walter Dahn studied with Joseph Beuys at the Art Academy Düsseldorf and later gained an international reputation as one of the leading painters of the Mülheimer Freiheit, a group founded with artists Jiří Georg Dokoupil, Hans Peter Adamski, and Peter Bömmels. The group developed a Neo-Expressionist, figurative style of intensely colorful painting in response to what they considered the overly-intellectual language of Minimalism and Conceptual Art. After exploring a variety of different mediums, including a stint as a punk rock musician, Dahn now concentrates on painting, taking inspiration from found images, song texts and poetry.
