Founder of Transformal Art - since 1994

The Idea of Nothing as Everything, of Finding by Not-searching, has more and more left its mark in Jodd’s artistic expression. He has reached his unmitigated artistic freedom through obeying, subordinating and allowing.
Everything happens as it should.
Jodd’s Transformal Art, he invented in 1994, brings back art to the naked soil, to the primeval horizon of origin, to the meaning of transformation and development.
His extensive portfolio is represented worldwide by KLASAN GALLERY | Vienna & London  and his works are shown at HMH Gallery | Mallorca, Spain  and at SINGULART online gallery.
At more than 100 exhibitions in Berlin, Vienna, Paris, New York, Toulouse, Miami, Aachen, St.Tropez, Bonn, Köln etc. his paintings received enthusiastic appreciation and found its way into many collections.
