Uli Aschenborn - Hans Ulrich Aschenborn (6 September 1947 in Johannesburg South Africa - ) is a well known animal painter in Southern Africa like his father Dieter Aschenborn and his grandfather Hans Anton (Hans) Aschenborn have been. Which can easily be verified by numerous newspaper articles to be found in the internet. He is especially known for his dynamic wildlife paintings of animals in full charge or flight. The musea in Windhoek and Swakopmund (Namibia) have artwork of Uli as well as the National Art Gallery of Namibia.
The Namibian media branded Uli Aschenborn’s new style “Amazing Changing Art“, because his new creations change – be it by themselves or because the onlooker passes by. For his “chameleon-paintings“, which change colour and content if the angle of view alters, he needs only sand and paint on his canvas. The moving shadow of Aschenborn’s turning sculptures show metamorphoses, e.g. the aging of a boy to an old man eventually to a skeleton (see video of such a 'Sculpture-Morph' to the left). The images within his “Morph-Cubes“ distort in a grotesque way while the onlooker moves.
