Volker Kühn (Kuehn) was born in Neuenkirchen near Bremen, Germany. He studied sculpture at the Bremen University of Design under Johannes Schreiter. After completing his studies, Kühn opened a studio in Lilienthal in 1972. In the 1970s and '80s, he made a series of whimsical miniature etchings (Miniatur-Radierung)--many of elephants--that are now very collectible.
