Wolfgang Lehmann was born in Freiburg/Breisgau, Germany.
His first short film in 16mm were made in 1989. Since 1994 Wolfgang Lehmann has realized and produced his own films, and has received invitations for showings at festivals and museums in Europe, Japan, People's Republic of China inclusive Hong Kong, South Korea, India, Bangladesh, Israel, Canada, USA, Argentina, Brazilian, Peru, Ecuador, Columbian and New Zealand. Retrospectives were shown in Berlin, Frankfurt/Main, Granada and Cagliari (Sardinia).
Since 2010, Wolfgang Lehmann deals again with static images, digital and analogue photography on the side of his moving image works.
He makes transformations and transfers of documentary images into abstract works. To accomplish the translation from one reality to another, he mixes the media: a crafted 16mm camera, 16mm film projectors, digital or analogue cameras and computers, the picture is a result of a conversion process.
