Philip Grözinger ist a German contemporary artist who studied art at the Braunschweig University of Art (HBK).
The artist now lives and works in Berlin and is represented by the Munich based gallery Nicole Gnesa.
Together with his gallery and the publishing house Hirmer Grözinger put together an oeuvre of his work in a wonderful book available at the Hirmer Verlag.
Philip Grözinger’s art derives from his investigations of future-oriented visions.
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.
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.
