#bjoernmalt Born in 1969 in Munich Björn Nonhoff grew up in the atmosphere of Swedish and German parents lost in Bavaria. Survived school and learned to ride a bike. In the early phase, he went onto the stage and played music and composed the lyrics. As a saxophone player in a big band and a singer in a rock band. He studied with professor Bode. After his exams, he went into poetry and writing. The boredom of the not yet invented poetry slams led him to perform arts and comedy shows. Quitting with a girlfriend she gave him some canvas and colours so he started drawing and painting. Focusing on modern art he researched a lot in the wide art world to shape and find his own style.

#lineart is minimal art leaving out essential elements to the viewer.

Complex emotions and structures are transposed into multi-dimensional figures, areas in resonance with space and time. This selection of artwork invites the viewer to his own experimental journey with the artificial universe of #lineart. Lines create figures, monsters, and movements. Linart is the connection of past, present and future-shaping our view in an open way.


the beast in me


explore, inspire and wake up.

Art is an experiment of communication, a combination of impulse and impact. It starts deep down from the inside, as an inner seed waiting for the right moment to come to the surface. It is transcending time and space. Lines reflect our movements towards growth and happiness in our curriculum of facing our contemporary lifetime and death.

Art should reach as far and near as possible, build bridges between people and their hearts and invite them to enjoy the beauty and mystery of this world, which in its diversity is mostly hard to cope with.
