Lars Höllerer was born on September 27, 1969, in Uberlingen. In 1991, three months after completing his military service, he suffered a serious motorbike accident and has been paralysed from the neck down ever since. At Tubingen Rehabilitation Clinic, he made his first attempts at painting by mouth and later continued his efforts at home. "At first the brush often landed on the floor", he says today. Later on, painting became an important part of him. Lars Höllerer intensively devoted himself to further developing his skills as an artist and from 1997 he attended the Public Art Academy in Muhlhofen for a few years. In 1999, Lars Höllerer became a Scholarship Holder of AMFPA and in 2005 he was granted the status of Associate Member.
