Portrait of the artist Christoph Fischer

About Christoph Fischer

The sculptor Christoph Fischer was born in 1956 in Mayen in the Eifel region, where he received his first sculptural inspiration and lessons. Academically, his first path led him - geographically obvious - to Cologne, where he studied at the Fachschule für Kunst und Design under Karl Burggraf. Soon, however, he went to Bremen. Here, he was a student of Bernd Altenstein from 1982 to 1992 - and it was more than just a change of location.

Maritime themes became the artist's trademark, and his works were frequently represented in public spaces. The young sculptor, who had already been interested in depicting animals, developed a passion for boats and fish. The boat - a metaphor of transition - and the animal continue to be important to Fischer, who now lives and works in Worpswede, Germany.
