Andy Denzler

Andy Denzler was born in Zurich where he currently lives and works. He obtained a Master of Fine Arts degree at the Chelsea College of Art and Design in London in 2006.


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 works have been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows in Europe, the United States and Asia in private and public institutions including the Gwangju Museum of Art, the Ludwig Museum in Koblenz, the Ludwig Galerie Schloss in Oberhausen, the Kunsthalle in Rostock, in Germany and he recently had a major retrospective at the Kunstforum in Vienna. In 2015, Denzler participated in the 6th Beijing international Biennale and in 2016, at the 6th Marrakech Biennale. His art is featured in major collections including the Hirshhorn Museum, in Washington DC, the Denver Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Montreal, the David Roberts Art Foundation in London, the Tel Aviv Museum of Modern Art, the MOMA Moscow, as well as the Museum Würth in Schwäbisch Hall, in Germany, the Burger Collection in Hong Kong and the White Cube Collection in London. A monography was recently published by Damiani.
