Abstract Art

February 5, 2021

Raphael Brunk is a German artist whose work can be located in the context of digital photography, more specifically, algorithmic photography. These works are based on visual constructions from the common image processing programs, while the algorithm serves as a brush. Even in his earliest works, which culminated in the exhibition at Galerie Droste in 2016, Brunk managed to surpass the limitations of traditional photography by focusing on foreign and digital realities. He studied Political Science, Philosophy, and Psychology at the University of Koblenz-Landau. Since 2013, he studied at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf under Professor Andreas Gursky, becoming his master's student in 2018. Raphael Brunk lives and works in Frankfurt.
