Werner Pawlok is self-taught, the kind of artist who will not be stopped because he cannot do something or because something does not appear to be possible. He managed to get hold of one of two specialised large-format Polaroid cameras in existence, and takes the same approach to his subjects: unafraid and open to all possible outcomes.
Pawlok’s work enjoys wide recognition around the world, with numerous international awards, solo exhibitions, and group exhibitions with great artists such as Warhol, Richter, Mapplethorpe, and Polke. Pawlok’s career began in 1977, when he opened his first studio in Esslingen, Germany. Sever years later, he moved to Stuttgart. In 1988, spent a year in New York. In addition to his haunting black and white Polaroid portraits of authors, his signature style is most recognisable in his ‘Photography Paintings’ or in his celebrity and fashion photographs.
