Paul Wunderlich (1927-2010) was a German artist, born in Eberswalde, noted for his Surrealist paintings and prints, and for his erotic sculpture. He studied graphic art at the Landeskunstschule in Hamburg before becoming an art teacher there during the late 1940s and 1950s. It was there that Wunderlich began making graphic work, including woodcuts, lithographs, engravings, and etchings. His early work referenced scenes of German oppressive history during World War II. Later he often created work which focused on mythological legend and also Surrealist-influenced works, featuring sexual imagery and fantastic forms. During the 1970s his main interest was in sculpture. His work was exhibited from 1949 in important galleries in Europe, the United States, Japan, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand, including the Redfern Gallery in London where he had several solo shows. Wunderlich is represented in many public collections worldwide. He moved to Paris in 1960 and lived between France and Hamburg until his death in Provence.
