Andre Niebur (b. 1973, Germany. Lives and works in Düsseldorf) In 1998, while studying at the Düsseldorf Kunstakademie, Niebur banded together with fellow students Sophie von Hellermann, Christian Jendreiko, Matthias Lahme and Dietmar Lutz to form the core of hobbypopMUSEUM, a collaborative artist campaign to redefine the notion of artistic agency in today's art world. Niebur's loosely painted, colourful canvases are also exhibited independently of the collective; recent works have been shown at Adeline Morlon Art Direction, Düsseldorf; and Murray Guy Gallery, New York. Selected solo exhibitions include Bona to vada, Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf; and Arquebuse, Geneva.
