Portrait of Otto Waalkes


Otto Waalkes


Everyone knows Otto! Germany's most popular comedian has made generations of fans laugh in his very own way. But the multi-talented actor not only stages his scenes perfectly on stage, he is also a master of pointed parody on screen. The fact that he learned how to handle brush and paint in eight semesters of art studies may be new to some of his followers. Whether in old-master technique, impressionistic or abstract, whether in oil, watercolour or acrylic - Otto Waalkes remains true to the motto of his father, the master painter Karl Waalkes: "Clean work is my principle."
