Marion Ruthardt – Germany
I am born in a little city near Düsseldorf, called Rheinhausen. My education was very multifarious, first I finished successfully the High School, afterwards I studied at a trading school, later I made degrees as a gardener and Yoga-Teacher, and worked in several jobs. Always I was accompanied by art, my father was my first teacher, and afterwards a famous artists in our area, called Anton Scharf. So after a long Odyssee I was finally so lucky to get the chance to make my passion to my profession.
With streetpainting I made my first contact at our streetpainting festival in a town called Geldern. First I took part for fun, but then very fast I won several prices and meanwhile I am part of the masterclass. My motivation was rising, because I won several other competitions, for example Bodenwerder and Neustadt, Italy. I started with classical 2d paintings, but nowadays most of the time I have to realize 3d paintings, because they are mostly requested. I work alone or together with my partner Gregor Wosik, who has a faible for XXL 3d paintings, so we both were part of several world records.
