Marc Fromm, born in 1971 in Langen/Hessen, trained as a carpenter and wood sculptor. He then went to the Burg Giebichenstein Art Academy in Halle to devote himself to the study of the human figure. He also studied at the École des Beaux Arts in Bordeaux. To this day, the human figure in its rapidly changing social fabric is the starting point of his motifs. The examination of basic themes and the contradictions of our time, the madness of everyday life, finds expression in large wooden sculptures and limewood reliefs.
