Matthias Bitzer

b. 1975, Germany

Bitzer’s work is characterised by the resolution of the figurative in ornamental geometries, the overlapping of divergent images, and the use of abstract forms. Often using various media to create abstract paintings, drawings and sculptures, the themes of history and identity are central to his work, with the lives of historical figures being the main inspiration for reflection.

Matthias Bitzer graduated from the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste (The Academy of Fine Arts) in Karlsruhe, Germany in 2004. Since then, he has had multiple solo and group exhibitions and achieved various fellowships including the Art Prize of Nordhorn City in 2007 and the Otto Dix prize in 2010. Bitzer lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
