Joachim Seitfudem


"Art is like an illness, you have it in you and at some point it breaks out of you"

Joachim Seitfudem creates figures out of wood and often out of old clock parts. His works tell stories of young souls, dreams, death and the passing of time. Most of his works are in black boxes, as if they were at home in a world of their own and nothing distracts from their message. His surreal tableaux remind us to live in the here and now.
Joachim Seitfudem on his art: "I do what I like, what I haven't seen before. And it doesn't matter to me if other people like it. The main thing is that it engages the viewer, for better or for worse.”
