André Butzer

Fusing European Expressionism with American popular culture, André Butzer has painted his way through the extremes of the 20th into the 21st century. With wide ranging influences, he has established a unique pictorial universe: NASAHEIM, a utopian, unattainable place where all colours are preserved and all worldly conflicts calm down.

Many iconic characters have come to populate this thrilling amalgamation of pop culture, art history and politics: His iconic characters: The homeless »Wanderer« striding toward an uncertain future, the »Woman«, mediating between the mundane and the celestial realms, who brings color into our world as well as the childlike »Friedens-Siemens« full of hope.

André Butzer, (b.1973)  Stuttgart, Germany , lives in Berlin. Since 1996, his paintings have been the subject of numerous institutional exhibitions; solo exhibitions among others at IKOB Museum of Contemporary Art in Eupen, Belgium; Kestnergesellschaft in Hanover, Germany; Kunsthalle Nuremberg, Germany; Kunstverein Reutlingen, Germany; Museum of the Light, Hokuto, Japan; Växjö Konsthall in Växjö, Sweden; and YUZ Museum, Shanghai, China.
