Philipp Gurtner (1988) is a self-taught artist whose creative work revolves around classical-figurative painting with modern and abstract elements and is presented in a contemporary manner. Philipp explores the romantic, nostalgic and sensual as well as the dark sides of life: nihilism, existentialism, longing and loneliness, which are contrasted with fragile and impressionistic beauty. Although he is a figurative painter, his focus is always on the emotional content and not on narrative or exuberant abstraction. The atmospheres in his sculptural, illustrative and painterly works are often depicted in a dream-like state with elements of realism, surrealism, idealism and impressionism.
