After terminating his studies in philosophy, Andreas Slominski (* 1959 in Meppen) studied art at the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg from 1983 to 1986. Following a professorship in Karlsruhe, he succeeded Franz Erhard Walther at the HFBK Hamburg in 2004.
Slominski became well-known through histrap objects, which are both banal objects and autonomous artworks. While his artworks from the 1980s and the early 1990s had the dimensions of small sculptures, hisanimal traps, for instance, have grown to become whole-space installations.
Slominski has received a number of awards, including the Karl-Ströher-Preis (1991), the Bremer Kunstpreis (1995), the Edwin-Scharff-Preis (1998), the Preis der Yokohama Triennale (2001) and the Niedersächsischer Kunstpreis (2004). For some time now, works by the painter and object artist have been on view in a very large number of solo and group exhibitions worldwide.
