AJ Weber was born on the 29th of November 1969 in Cochem, Germany. He grew up in Ellenz by the Mosel-River and spent most of his childhood at the Catholic boarding school ‘Hermann Josef Kolleg Steinfeld’, where he achieved his vocational diploma. After his studies Weber decided to train at the parental business to become a Hotel Manager. Through the traineeship, he has worked Leicester, England at the Hotel Three Swans. Furthermore he became a certified bartender, while working and studying in Altottingen, Germany.
“Over the years, the artist grew in me. I was painting by myself and wanted to see the big, wide world. I traveled to the United States and lived there for approximately three months. There, I was able to open my mind to collect new impressions. As soon as I came home, all the absorbed effects broke out of me. I let out my creativity and the linens filled up with colors and emotions. I have finally found my purpose- the ART.”
Weber took art courses at the European academy of modern art in Trier, Germany. He also studied as an exchange student at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, Nebraska. From 2003 until 2006 he lived in the USA, where he had his own art studio in Kansas City. When Weber moved back to Germany he went to the capital Berlin and started a new phase in his creative development.
