Wenzel Karl – Heinz was born on August 11, 1932, in Wolfsberg, Austria. He was a German painter and graphic artist.

From 1947 – 1950 Wenzel painted in Wittenberg and in Karlheinz, Germany. Following five years, he studied at the Berlin-Weissensee Art Academy under master teachers and artists Horst Strempel (1904 – 1975), Arno Mohr (1910 – 2001) and Bert Heller (1912 – 1970). After his studies, he first worked as a freelance artist in the Lutherstadt Wittenberg, where he led a painting and drawing circle.

In 1965, daughter Saskia, who is also a painter, was born in Wittenberg. Since 1970, Wenzel has lived and worked in Neubrandenburg, where he has also led a painting circle since 2002. Wenzel had a significant number of personal exhibitions and was represented at many important exhibitions in the GDR (East Germany), including all the German Art Exhibitions and Art Exhibitions in Dresden from 1958 to 1983.

Wenzel was a member of the Association of Visual Artists of the GDR, and after the end of East Gemany in 1990 he became a member of the Artists’ Association of Mecklenburg and Western Pomerania.

Today, his works can be found in private collections. Wenzel’s paintings are captivating due to a virtuoso handling of colour tones and structures. The subject, the atmosphere and the emotionality of the composition are precisely sensed and communicated directly to the viewer. The perception of light in the landscape is often the starting point of an ingenious pictorial invention.
