Ok, it’s true, Philipp was born somewhere in Bavaria, but we try not to hold it against him (too often…).He grew up in Berlin though and still lives there with his beautiful wife and kids.
If he has one thing in particular in common with Cristo, it’s that he started to develop his skills in an early age
and has been busy drawing, painting, sculpting, taking tons and millions of paper and digital pictures all his life.
He has painted huge coloured frames, covered them with 12cm of glue, put pieces of glass on them (yes, impossible to move these); has drawn plenty of action comic books and has illustrated stories of other artists.
Furthermore, he loves to design CD-covers and has done an especially nice one in 2005 (namely ours!)
“The Spider in Charlie’s box” that comes with a whole comic book inside.
You may notice that he inserts pictures into some of his drawings/paintings what makes for a complex collage. Take your time when looking at those to savour the Da Vinci code effect.
Some of his publications include:
“Prince Charming” – (U.S.; Caleb Monroe, Cryptic Magazine)
“Carnivore Adore” – (U.S.; Carnopolis)
“Winter War” – (U.S. ; Kurt Belcher, SPX)
