The artist was born in 1950 in the Erzgebirge. He has lived in the Enzkreis region since 1990 and has been working in Weil der Stadt / Merklingen since 2011, where he has his “MAL- Werkstatt”, his studio with exhibition rooms, in a former farmhouse.
Manfred Alex-Lambrinos, a trained mechanical engineering technician, worked for 35 years in various prisons in the state of Baden-Württemberg, most recently as technical director in the Heimsheim prisons.
His artistic work was strongly influenced by this activity, which is characterized by an intensive engagement with a wide variety of people. Long distance journeys, mainly to Asia and more recently to Africa, also characterize his work, as well as the life between two cultures, his own and his foreign wife’s.
In all cases, the human being with his culture, his personality, his charisma and his character is the focus of his attention. In this way, the persons are detached from their context and presented to the viewer’s gaze.
The basis for the elaboration of the linoleum plates are motifs that the artist himself photographed mainly during his travels.
