André Butzer

André Butzer is one of Germany’s most relevant contemporary artists who founded the Akademie Isotrop in Hamburg. Butzer continues to have frequent international coverage in arts publications with over 290 worldwide exhibitions including prestigious institutions such as MUMOK, the Kunsthalle Nuernberg, and works in the collections of MOCA Los Angeles, LACMA, Sammlung Goetz and the Scharpff Collection, amongst many others. A self proclaimed "colorist", Butzer's body of work has progressed from chromatically-intense large scale figurative paintings rife with pop-culture references, to seemingly "minimalist" black and white abstract paintings, all of which allude to "NASAHIEM", Butzer's created non-imaginable, non-picture-able space from which all his paintings begin in and move towards. Born in 1973 in Stuttgart, Germany Lives and works in Altadena, California.
