Marlon Wobst (b. 1980) is a German artist born in Wiesbaden, who lives and works in Berlin. In his paintings ordinary-seeming subjects always take on a humorous slant. Wobst has studied at the Berlin University of the Arts, UdK, from where he graduated in 2011 under the guidance of the Finnish artist, Professor of Painting Robert Lucander. Wobst has taken part in solo and group exhibitions in Europe, Brazil and the USA. This exhibition at Helsinki Contemporary is his debut in Finland. His latest solo shows include Galerie Maria Lund in Paris, Kunsthal Charlottenborg and Galleri KANT in Copenhagen, and Schwarz Contemporary in Berlin.
