Axel Friedrich, born 1967 in Krefeld

After vocational training as a stonemason and sculptor specialising in church restoration and sculpture (journeyman's examination), he studied from 1991-1994 at the Münster Art Academy in the subject of free art with Prof. Joachim Bandau, then until 1997 at the Düsseldorf Art Academy with Prof. Tony Cragg (graduation: academy diploma). He finished his studies as a master student of Tony Cragg. Until 2001 he worked as a freelance sculptor with commissions in the field of sculpture restoration and gravestones, and as a modeller for three-dimensional design models, dummies and prototypes in the field of object and figure. Since 1996 he has been working continuously as a freelance artist with exhibition activities at home and abroad.

Since 2001, he has been employed as a research assistant at the Chair of Sculpture /RWTH Aachen, which has become the Chair of Artistic Design as of 2019.
