<<The beauty of contradiction>>
"I'm not interested in the harmony of the ordinary - I'm interested in what lies beneath. What would light be without shadow? What would the calm be without the storm? I'm fascinated by darker tones, by the contradictions of our being. Within us, good and bad exist simultaneously. These opposites live within us and only through them we do become who we are. I want to capture the tensions created by contradiction. I want to visualize the tarnished core of our very existence."
Tobias Vetter was born in 1985 in the Allgäu region of Germany.
After studying illustration and graphic design at the School of Fine Arts and Art Therapy in Bochum, Vetter moved to Berlin in 2011 and began his work as an artist. Initially garnering recognition and acclaim for the monochrome artworks he'd tattoo on people's skin, Vetter has now turned his focus to painting and sculpting.
