It all started with a bat.
The bat dates from 1971, when Wolf Gast was six years old. Although it looks more like a fox that has grown legs and wings, this etching marks the start of a remarkable artistic development. “It was the time my great-uncle Fritz Springer (known as Fris) allowed me to produce my first work of art in his workshop in Tübingen. It was fascinating, because my uncle was already a well-respected painter and graphic artist,” recalls Wolf Gast.
