International artist Maximilian Wiedemann recently flew into town with partner, muse, and Nashville native Olivia Steele. The power couple held a well-received show in the magnificent Steele home (featured on page 45 for a peak inside). Though Wiedemann and Steele grew up on opposite sides of the pond, they seem to be something of aesthetic soul mates. Their star-crossed, whirlwind romance has produced an unstoppable artistic alliance. Wiedemann hails from Germany by way of Great Britain. His Imitate Modern gallery in London has drawn eager crowds of fans, and his recent ad campaign for the VH1 Divas special brought his work to an audience of over one hundred million people. We caught up with the couple before they jetted away to Maximilian’s latest show at the Fabien Castanier Gallery in Los Angeles.
