5 Artists to Watch by Christian Lepsien

Christian Lepsien has been a dedicated art collector since 1999. In that time, he has built up an international collection driven by his childlike curiosity and constant exploration of the ever-changing field of art which also led to the foundation of the Lepsien Art Foundation in 2005. The Lepsien Art Foundation is a charity non-profit-organization (NPO) with the mission to provide sustainable patronage for emerging talents in the field of Fine Art and to build bridges between Europe and Middle East through art and culture. We asked Christian Lepsien to highlight five artists who are of particular interest to him at the moment. These are…
