Dennis Scholl was born in Hünfeld in 1980. He studied at the Hamburg Academy of Fine Arts under Franz Erhard Walther and Andreas Slominski from 2002 to 2007. Initially, he produced exclusively small format, graphite works. Over the years, his drawings gradually increased in scale until they reached monumental proportions. Since 2017, Scholl has focused on painting. His works have been shown internationally at solo and group exhibitions, including shows at Hamburger Kunsthalle, Mannheimer Kunsthalle, Bonner Kunstverein, the Institut für moderne Kunst in Nürnberg, the Busan Biennale in South Korea, the Museum of Modern Art in Hünfeld, the Albertz Benda Gallery in New York City, Galerie Michael Haas in Berlin, and most recently at the DSC Gallery in Prague. Scholl lives and works in Berlin.
