Andy DENZLER

Andy Denzler was born in 1965 in Zurich where he currently lives and works. He studied Fine Arts at the Kunstgewerbeschule and at the F&F Schule für Gestaltung in Zurich, at the University of Los Angeles in California and at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. In 2016, he obtained a Master of Fine Arts degree at the Chelsea College of Art and Design in London.

Denzler has created a signature style encompassing bands of pigment that alternate between static, thick marks and blurred, flowing sweeps. The human figure remains at the core of his explorations, courting the viewer’s memories, and leaving him with a vague gnawing that he has missed something lying just beneath the surface. Perception and distortion are prominent and powerful traits of Denzler’s studio practice.

His work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows in Europe, the United States and Asia in private and public institutions such as the Guangju Museum of Art in Seoul. He has had two important retrospectives: at the Ludwig Museum in Kolbenz and at the Kunsthalle in Dresden. In 2015, he was exhibited at the Art biennale in Beijing, in 2016 at the art biennale Marrakech and more recently at the KunstForum in Wien. His work is part of many prestigious private and public collections such as the White House in Washington DC, the Museum of Modern Art in Moscow, the Denver Art Museum, Credit Suisse, the Burger Collection in Hong Kong, the David Roberts Art Foundation in London, and the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington. A monography was recently published by Damiani.
