Robert Nippoldt

Robert Nippoldt was born on 13 October 1977 in Kranenburg, Germany. After school, the judge's son briefly studied law before coming to Münster in the summer of 1999, where he studied graphic design and illustration at the University of Applied Sciences.

His diploma book "Gangster. Die Bosse von Chicago" fortunately found a publisher right away so that Nippoldt could concentrate on book art from then on. After two years of work, his second book, "Jazz. New York in the Roaring Twenties", was published in autumn 2007 and was voted by the Stiftung Buchkunst as "the most beautiful German book of 2007". "Hollywood in the 1930s" was published in 2010 and is his third book of the trilogy about America in the 20s & 30s.

His work has been shown in numerous exhibitions in Berlin, Darmstadt, Essen, Frankfurt, Leipzig and Munich, among others. When he is not snorkelling or trying to tune his guitar, he is probably drawing in his studio in Münster.
