Ull Hohn was born in Trier, Germany in 1960. He studied painting under Gerhard Richter in Düsseldorf from 1984-86 and then left Germany for New York City. He began the Whitney Independent Study Program in 1987 where he shared a studio wall and become close with Tom Burr. The freedom of New York and independent study allowed Hohn's work to mature into the two series Untitled (9 Landscape Paintings) and 9 Relief Paintings. Hohn is associated with the rise of institutional critique. He sadly passed away at the age of 35 due to AIDS, and is represented by Galerie Neu in Berlin, which also represents Burr, Nick Mauss, Josephine Pryde, and Hilary Lloyd.
