Norbert Müller-Everling is an artist characterised by his unique philosophy and usage of colour in his work. 1973–79 he was studying at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf as a student of Erwin Heerich, afterwards philosophy in Aachen. He began developing his own style in the early 1980s. His work of that time is characterised to create forms which follow the tradition of concrete art, as Max Bill and others founded it.[2] He sought to create objects so that the new science of form could be experienced by the senses. A prime example of his sculptural work is his Percent for Art work for the Bundesverteidigungsministerium Bonn, (1997).[3] His later works are characterised by using colour sparingly in objects in material form of coloured paraffin. He developed his own style of having light be the medium of the work itself. It allows his work to be independent of connections to any kind of representation.[1]
