With his individualistic painterly signature he invites the viewer to join him on a surreal journey through the pictorial traditions of the Pop culture of recent decades.

This volume is a retrospective which provides a comprehensive overview of his outstanding oeuvre.


If there were such a thing, Grözinger’s works could be classified as Virtual Surrealism.

Figures in space suits, black manikins and other figures encounter one another in a fictional cosmos.

Against a background of abstract worlds they tell stories which follow their own physical laws.

This is where the magic happens!

In painterly manner, Grözinger combines lurid contrasts with delicate, pastel-like shades.

His paint application is based on that of miniature painting and gives the cartoon-like creatures human features as it draws the viewer into the artist’s fantasy world.    

A very big thank you to the Hirmer Verlag for sending us a copy of this wonderful book, thank you also to Nicole Gnesa and the very gifted Philip Grözinger for sharing with us.
