Michael Pendry created the basis for his understanding of space, light and shadow during his studies at the Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences and the Academy of Art in Munich. With the subjects of stage design and scenography, the German-English artist developed a staging basis that today allows him to fundamentally change the usual perception of everyday things. In his 2009/2010 work "Stern des Südens" (Star of the South), he transformed the windmill opposite Munich's Allianz Arena into a huge, rotating multimedia installation with the help of over 9,000 LEDs. In doing so, he set new standards in public perception and in exploring the boundaries of modern art. His monumental works always have a romantic side and enjoy a growing international following.
