  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

Gama (Chinese, b.1977) was born in Mongolia, and grew up in the nomadic tradition in which shamanism still plays an important role. In 2002, he enrolled in the Karlsruhe Academy of Art to study oil painting under Gustav Kluge. During this period, he was exposed to the figurative painting of the New Leipzig School, and found an unexpected convergence between the folklore and rituals of his own country of birth and the imaginative traditions of Germany. Memories of shamanism coexist with figures that seem to have stepped out of Grimm’s fairy tales.

Gama is born 1977 in Mongolia
