Uwe Rachow has studied visual arts at Kunstakademie Berlin/Germany where he achieved the “Meisterschüler” with Prof. Bachmann in 1988.
SINCE THEN ...
... he works independently as artist.
For his art works he was awarded with the German art award of „Volksbanken und Raiffeisenbanken“ in 1996, the „Bergischer Kunstpreis“ in 2001,
a scholarship of the foundation „Kunstfonds BRD“ in 2006, among others.
Besides, he applies his skills and experience in painting in commissioned projects of architecture, museum and gallery installations, film or public spaces. Here he has worked together with internationally acclaimed architects, curators and urban planners, such as Iranian architect and artist Kamran Diba, German artist Bazon Brock, townhalls of various German cities, film maker Rajele Jain, among others.
As it can be seen in this website, he favours to challenge the perception of the viewer with quite unusual and different types & ways of painting and presenting pictures.
