Roger Herman is an L.A. artist born and educated in Germany. He moved to California in 1977 where he started working with canvases. Painted with a loose, colorful hand, they managed to be simultaneously expressive and conceptual, with traces of Georg Baselitz and Anselm Kiefer. Herman was recognized as the West Coast parallel of the eighties neo-Expressionist movement.
Received the awards “DAAD Grant” from Germany and “National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship Grant”. His works are part of important collections such as Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; Museo del Arte Contemporanea, Mexico City; and Achenbach Foundation, San Francisco.
