Thomas Scheibitz Biography

Born in 1968 in Radeberg, Thomas Scheibitz is a German painter and sculptor, working in this practice since the early 1990s. He attended the Hochschule fur Bildende Kunste from 1991 to 1996 and later was a Masters scholar under Prof. Kerbach. His work explores the boundaries between figuration and abstraction as he uses large blocks of dense colour, sharp unforgiving black lines, and layering of objects to play with the viewer's perception of depth and three-dimensionality. The resulting works allude to cubist traditions, yet make use of regular everday items, made recognizable to the viewer.

He has exhibited since the late 1990s and has had solo exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (1999), Berkeley Art Museum in San Francisco (2001), Museum der bildenden Kunste, Leipzig (2001), Camden Arts Centre, London (2008), Musee d'Art Moderne, Luxembourg (2008), Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2007), Centre d'Art Contemporain, Geneva (2004) and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2001). In 1998 he received the Hegenbarth scholarship for the project TYCOON-TOKIO. At age 29, he was the youngest artist to represent Germany at the Venice Biennale in 2005, alongside with another German artist; Tino Sehgal. He exhibited a series of geometric paintings. He has also done curatorial work for The Drawing Room in London in 2010, and for the Galerie Koch und Kesslau in Berlin in 2003. He currently lives and works in Berlin.
