Philip Grözinger


Science fiction meets painting in the avant-garde and surreal work of Philip Grözinger.

With his signature painterly style, Philip Grözinger invites the viewer to join him on a surreal journey influenced by the popular culture of recent decades, with a special focus on the monsters and aliens of science fiction.
Grözinger’s work could be best described as Virtual Surrealism. Figures in space suits, mannequins, and ghostly apparitions encounter one another in a fictional cosmos. Set against abstract backgrounds, Grözinger’s works tell stories that follow their own physical laws, and cartoon-like creatures with human features draw the viewer into the artist’s fantasy world. Combining lurid contrasts with delicate, pastel-like shades, Grözinger’s technique is based on that of miniature painting. Complete with more than one hundred color illustrations, this volume is a retrospective that provides a comprehensive overview of Grözinger’s outstanding body of work.
