ULLI KAMPELMANN

ullithroneoriginal

Ulli Kampelmann is a professional artist from Germany now based in Florida. She was born and raised in Halle, East Germany. Ulli attended university in Halle to learn art and the teaching of art. She became an accomplished artist even before graduating with her Master’s degree in education. However, Ulli is consistently free-spirited and rebellious and she repeatedly clashed with the stifling strictures of socialism. Risking prison and possibly death, she recklessly escaped to West Berlin in the trunk of a friend’s car. Ulli opened her art studio in Stuttgart and gained fame in West Germany designing her works primarily for banks, corporations and architectural projects. Her artworks adorn various private and corporate collections as well as the Museum of Modern Art in Stuttgart.

Her most recent artworks are a series of tall, narrow paintings depicting expressive and evocative individuals and scenes.

An offshoot of the work she produced for Mercedes Benz came about from the discovery she made in the corporate archives while researching into the background of the company. She came across the details of a fascinating story which took place at the very dawn of the automobile age. Ulli veered into film-making and produced an award-winning documentary called The Car is Born which relates these events.

With the success of her first documentary, Ulli has expanded further into the film world by writing a feature-film length screenplay called Escapings about her life in East Germany and her eventual escape to West Berlin. Another similar project is a on-hour-long documentary with a similar theme called That Damned Wall. This project is currently in post production.
