Matthias Weischer (born in 1973 in Rheine, Germany) is a painter living in Leipzig. Weischer is considered to be part of the New Leipzig School. Weischer studied painting from 1995 to 2001 and received his MA in 2003 from Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst (HGB) in Leipzig. He was student in the master class of Professor Sighard Gille. In 2002, he was co-founder of the artist-initiated gallery LIGA in Berlin that was run by eleven former HGB students, among them Christoph Ruckhäberle, Tim Eitel, David Schnell and Tom Fabritius. LIGA was closed after two years in 2004. After cooperating with Galerie Kleindienst (Leipzig) and Anthony Wilkinson (London), Weischer is represented by Galerie EIGEN + ART (Leipzig/Berlin) since 2004. His studio is located at the Leipzig Cotton Mill. –
