Florian Japp

January 3, 2016

Florian Japp is a Berlin-based Swiss contemporary artist who explores the relationship between an object and its surroundings in his photographs, sculptures and video works.

His non-functional massive sculptures often in acid shades of bright originates from a personal observation of the puzzles in the environment. He confronts men’s nature to want to identify his surroundings with his often incomplete pieces. The artworks are named by number and each work is custom made. The observers are left astonished, losing themselves in Japp’s abstract puzzle objects.
