Artist of the moment……Peter Zimmermann

Peter Zimmerman is a wonderful German artist working in an abstract manner. Zimmermann is renowned for his blob paintings. These works are made by taking a photo and then abstracting the shape onto a canvas using photoshop and other techniques he has learned over the years. The works are colored using an airbrush. These works are also finished with epoxy resin.

Zimmermann’s work is  a great blend of old school mediums such as the airbrush, and modern mediums including the computer program “Photoshop.”

For his artistic education Zimmermann attended the Academie der Bildenden Kunste located in Stuttgart, Germany.

Zimmermann has produced multiple books of his artwork.

Price range information: Works range from $10,000 to $60,000.

Peter Zimmermann is based out of Cologne, Germany where he also teaches.
