Wiedemann’s artworks cover a wide medium scope. Managing to combine popular brands and images representative of contemporary luxury, with bold statements like: ‘Money Talks But has Nothing to Say’, ‘Closer To God in Heels’, and ‘The Only Pain is Champagne’, he effortlessly exudes glamour with the most witty approach. Max Wiedemann first appeared in the spotlight after Karl Lagerfield noticed his work and purchased a piece. And after an introduction to the Editor of French Vogue, which brought him a commission by VH1 for a series of paintings including Adele; Wiedemann also collaborated with the famed celebrity photographer Tyler Shields, featuring Lindsay Lohan and supermodel Elle MacPherson for the cover of the UK’s The Big Issue. He has been exhibiting and curating both collective and individual shows throughout Europe since 1999 and is represented in various collections around the world, most recently in Los Angeles. And while working with supermodels like Caprice Bourret and painting a selection of artist’s, his billboards have been seen all over the States.
