Driven by subconscious thought, German Jan Pleitner (born 1984) makes psychedelically inspired abstract paintings, which he describes as "neo-expressionist" or as reflecting "sci-fi-expressionism”. This volume provides the first retrospective overview of his idiosyncratic practice, including works from 2004-2020 and highlighting key exhibitions and moments in the artist’s early career.
