Martin Weimar

Martin Weimar is a crosser between gardening and the liberal arts. After his training as a gardener and florist he studied at the Staatliche Fachschule für Blumenkunst Weihenstephan in Freising.
In 1984 he made a lateral entry into the Munich Akademie der Bildenden Künste and studied with Daniel Spoerri. His clients know him as a partner of Kunst- und Lustgärtnerei at Schlosspark Schleißheim at the gates of Munich – a garden centre with aesthetic aspirations, as he describes it. When his day-to-day business allows him some latitude, the dedicated gardener goes the extra mile, casting a glance at the surrounding nature. Thus the vanilla-scented Glory Bower, tattooed with garden plans, finds its way into the Edwin Scharff Museum, Flamingo Flowers sprawl from plush chairs and a much-despised weed named Gallant Soldier is pressed into bales (detaining the gallant soldiers!) or is filmed being pulled up by a camera dangling from the chest.
