Jens Gramberg-Madel was so fascinated by the variety of colors and shapes in nature that he learned the trade of florist and perfected it at the technical school for floral art in Weihenstephan. The strong artistic orientation of the technical school motivated him to deal even more intensively with nature and to expand the artistic dimension. A study of painting followed, which he began at the Bremen Art Academy and completed at the Munich Art Academy. Immediately thereafter, he accepted a teaching position at the technical school for floral art and still lectures at this renowned institution, which has stood for avant-garde, experimental floral and natural art for 70 years. He has been the artistic director of the technical school since August 2021.
