German artist Christoph Fuhrken was born in 1961 in Oldenburg (Lower Saxony). Today he lives in Rastede where he works as a freelance artist under the artist name KAMELOGANA.
Christoph Fuhrken's artistic career begins on the eve of the war in Iraq in 2003. As a member of an Art Association in Darmstadt, he organized a peace soiree with artist friends. A tad later, he begins to process the war in watercolor diaries. The consequence were two characteristic and recurring motifs in his works: A two-humped camel and a four-petalled flower. Symbols that can be found in all his works of art.
