Paul Michels

born in Völklingen | lives in Berlin, Germany

Paul Michels was born in November 1999 and is studying visual communications at Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee. Initially mostly interested in drawing to evoke emotions, he then started to learn to knit and to weave and combining that with self written poems and stories. Exploring the room with installations of hand-knitted and knotted sculptures and how they interact with words is his focus point of his artistic practice. Looking into the opening gap between text and art, Paul tries to remember, to tell stories, to not forget and to create.

Maybe even more, to hold; or maybe less, to let go.
