Markus Vater studied Art History and Philosophy
in Trier and Fine Art at the Kunstakademie of Muenster and Duesseldorf.
He recently completed his MA in painting at the Royal College of
Vater possesses one of the most reserved and analytical of all personality-styles.
Because he needs to be absolutely sure of his position, he often
asks for clarification of points, or otherwise seeks to ensure that
he fully understands another person's position before acting upon
it. He lacks social confidence to a greater or lesser degree, and
his communication is therefore commonly reactive rather than proactive,
waiting for others to ask for comment before offering it. Mr. Vater's
interest in matters of fact and accuracy, which can at times reach
obsessive proportions, makes him difficult to understand for less
precise personalities. While he values relationships with other
people, he also likes to spend time by himself, and this can lead
to others seeing him as remote." Artist's statement.
