Danny Gretscher (Germany)

International Artist

(profile image taken by Nina Juric)

Born in Jena, Germany, Danny has lived and worked in Berlin since 2004. He studied a Diploma in Graphic Design at the College of Stuttgart in 1999 but a year after starting turning toward fine art. As an autodidact, Danny works across painting, drawing, sculpture and installation, with subtle balances in style also found in his street art. His works explore the concept of balancing abstract and concrete, conceptual and figurative.

It is an old tradition to study mysterious entities, their meanings and powers. Their impact on the visible and the invisible is what inspires Danny Gretscher in his work as well as his urge to consciously get closer than us humans usually do to what is the origin of things. Danny Gretscher´s work consits of elements that are often reduced and mostly not clearly seperated from each other. In being at the same time abstract and concrete they generate atmospheric visual worlds that are without time and space. (Rosa Gibbs, 2011)
