“It’s great if my art helps some people enjoy a wonderful laugh about something dark, which will possibly make it all a bit more bearable.” – Andreas Claussen
Andreas Claussen (b. 1988) is a multidisciplinary artist who combines traditional drawing and painting skills with modern technologies like 3D rendering.
Apart from his graphic designer mother, the Claussen’s have largely engaged in life pursuits that have remained outside of the sphere of art. In fact, in Andreas’ early 20s, he expected that he’d become an attorney! Art, he recalls, was never really a significant part of his upbringing. Like most children who are fond of visually expressing themselves before school systems urge them to shift over into more ‘serious pursuits’, he certainly enjoyed creative activities but admits that his “art skills were good…never extraordinary.”
After painting seascapes for half a decade, he now works on a new series called “FLOOD”. He has exhibited his work in galleries and at major art fairs in Germany and sold across Europe, South Korea, Canada, and the USA. He lives and works in Gehrden/Lower Saxony, Germany.
