George Stever

Shadow and light

George Stever

The German-born artist (*1940 in Templin) lived and worked in Caracas/Venezuela since 1974, where he died on October 23, 2019. His last exhibition was entitled "The Dignity of Silence" in the eine art gallery, then still in Cologne.

Jorge Stever, painter and sculptor, as he is often called, is one of our best known visual artists, pontor and sculptor, who studied philosophy and art history in Frankfurt and Munich (Germany). In 1972 he participated in the "Documenta 5″ (Kassel, Germany) and in 1973 he exhibited together with Jasper Johns at the Darmstadt Museum and the Kunsthalle in Cologne, the Museum of Modern Art in Helsinki, the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm and the Weingarten Gallery in Stockholm. That year he lived in Venezuela and has exhibited as a Venezuelan artist since then.

His work can be classified as lyrical abstraction or new realism, with clear influences of informalism.

He was published in numerous publications in Europe and America as one of the forerunners of hyperrealism. In 1974 he exhibited again at the Weingarten Gallery in Stockholm, together with Lynn Chadwick, and at the Kunsthalle Recklinghausen, where he received the National Painting Prize that year. He also took part in the III Triennial of New Delhi (India), where he received the gold medal.
