Stephan Balkenhol's sculptures are among the most well known works of contemporary art in Germany. His figures, often 'normal,' neutral, coincidental looking bystanders, inhabit many of the museums and public spaces of our cities. Mainly Balkenhol has produced human figures, but he has made animals and mythical creatures as well. Their simple and seemingly casual formal language has contributed to their success, and at the same time made them a provocation in the eyes of critics and other representatives of the art world.
