Johannes Brechter

Johannes Brechter 

Johannes Brechter (1979) lives and works in Munich, Germany. He studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.

Previously, he completed an apprenticeship in advertising engineering and sign making. During this time, he learned the craft of lettering and typography. He began to use residual materials from advertising technology and other recycling materials for his sculptures, collages, and installations, which also influenced his pictorial style. Over the years, he has gradually developed a more abstract visual language, which combines typography and illustrative elements.

Brechter's artistic work has its roots in the world of graffiti which always has an impact on his studio works, his installations and his murals produced in public spaces.
