Andy Denzler

Biography

In a world seemingly enamoured with high definition and extreme resolution, the distorted photo-like quality of Denzler’s paintings provides an alternative to our often over-glossed 'reality‘.

Andy Denzler (born 3 August 1965) is a Swiss artist. His distinctive technique of distorting the freshly applied surface of his paintings has shaped his entire oeuvre in painting, printmaking, sculpture and drawing.

 

Denzler was born in Zurich. He trained at the Kunstgewerbeschule and the F+F Schule für Gestaltung in Zurich, both schools of applied arts, as well as at the University of California, Los Angeles, and the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena. In 2006 he graduated as Master of Fine Arts from London's Chelsea College of Art and Design. Denzler lives and works in Zurich.

 

Denzler's works are shown in solo and group exhibitions in international galleries and museums, in Europe, America, Asia and, since 2010, also in Russia. His works can be found at the Denver Art Museum, the Musée d'art contemporain de Montreal, Canada, the David Roberts Art Foundation, London, the Tel Aviv Museum of Modern Art in Israel, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the White House in Washington DC, at the Museum Würth at Schwäbisch Hall in Germany, at the Burger Collection Hong Kong, the White Cube Collection, London, the KunstWerk – Sammlung Klein in Eberdingen/Stuttgart and at the Kunsthalle Rostock, Germany.
