Following the success of the exhibition "UPCOMING ARTISTS" 2019, we are delighted to open our doors to present art this year again: under the title "Ikigai", a Japanese expression for joy of life, the sense of life, moments of happiness or also contentment, the internationally renowned artist Christian Awe takes one on a journey of the senses and emotions.

Curated by Mon Müllerschön and Benedikt Müller.

Influencer Simon Lohmeyer will accompany the opening photographically.

We look forward to a stimulating and inspiring evening of art.

Christian Awe

Berlin based artist Christian Awe fuses colours and shapes in a virtuoso manner, capturing moments of freedom and joie de vivre. In the technique of "water pictures" developed by him, compositions of matt and shiny layers give the impression that real drops are covering the painted surface. Energetically coloured trickles merge with dynamic splashes and airy floating gestures.

For Christian Awe, colour is life energy and passion. What at first appears to be random are in fact consciously created compositions, controlled chance. In his abstractly expressive works, the artist creates colour landscapes full of depth and drama that touch the senses and give free rein to the viewer's associations and emotions.


May 06 to July 12, 2022


The title of the exhibition, "IKIGAI" was chosen deliberately. Not only because of Awe's personal connection to Japan, where he has exhibited several times. Above all, "IKIGAI" is an expression for a subjective feeling of well-being that encompasses the sensation of the meaning of life and includes the joy of being alive. This perfectly resonates with the philosophy of the SPA & RESORT BACHMAIR WEISSACH, inviting  guests to moments of joy within its exceptional symbiosis of Asian and Alpine culture.
