We really like Sven‘s original and beautiful painting style. His most recent series is called “IDENTITY IS A CHOICE”. We added a timelapse of one of his paintings at the end of this article.

“I’am born in Berlin, but I guess my story is not so important than the story from my models I paint.

There are Will Norton and Danny Carr two amazing and handsome male models from England. They shoot and walk for Tom Ford and Calvin Klein. They are real characterheads. There are Sonia Trzewikowska. She is an breathtaking model from Poland. I met her at a party in Berlin and I immediately saw her potential and she is an exceptional model. There are Vanessa Tavares with her beautiful sphinx cat Dimitri from Portugal. I learned alot to paint wrinkles, and I really enjoyed to work with her.

I’am very proud and stirred with my new series to have been given the opportunity to meet all these wonderful people and paint. They are the ones that make my painting so great.” – Sven Ballenthin
