Andreas Noßmann

Andreas Noßmann was born in 1962 in Hilden near Düsseldorf, Germany. After training as a "technical assistant for design", he studied communication design with a focus on free graphics and painting. Under the professor’s Will Sensen and Michael Badura, he then continued his studies in Wuppertal.

The freelance artist made a name for himself as an illustrator of numerous literary texts. In the beginning, the focus of his work was etching. Later, he specialised in drawing, which became the central means of expression. With quick strokes – the technique of lithography suits him well – Noßmann captures the essential in stone.

Numerous exhibitions, publications and participation in trade fairs attest to his great skill in portraiture and figuration. He stands in the tradition of great 20th century draughtsmen such as Ludwig Meidner, Horst Janssen and Emil Orlik.
