Philip Grözinger’s art derives from his investigations of future-oriented visions. With his individualistic painterly signature he invites the viewer to join him on a surreal journey through the pictorial traditions of the Pop culture of recent decades. This volume is a retrospective which provides a comprehensive overview of his outstanding oeuvre.

If there were such a thing, Grözinger’s works could be classified as Virtual Surrealism. Figures in space suits, black manikins and other figures encounter one another in a fictional cosmos. Against a background of abstract worlds they tell stories which follow their own physical laws. In painterly manner, Grözinger combines lurid contrasts with delicate, pastel-like shades. His paint application is based on that of miniature painting and gives the cartoon-like creatures human features as it draws the viewer into the artist’s fantasy world.
