Lars was born in 1978 and grew up in the northern part of Germany. He studied technical orthopedics and worked as an engineer for almost ten years.
Something was a miss though..
Was he looking for something different?
Painting an photography had always been a big part of his life.
At age 39 Lars decided to take a leap of faith - Laaas was born.
This journey began with black and white scribbles in December 2017, after which he quickly developed his style adding a palette of powerful and colorful watercolors.
"My paintings are like a window to your own subconcious"
Listen to the stories they tell and let your fantasy roam free, to a point where the faces and objects you see assemble into powerful surreal scenes.
They represent the spellbound intensity with which Laas creates.
Lars Weigend lives and works in Göttingen.
