Born in 1974 in East Germany, Fredrich Kunath is a contemporary artist. After studying at The Braunschweig University of Art, he moved to Los Angeles, USA. He habitually instills poetic verses into his paintings, giving them a melancholic disposition that distinguishes his works with an individual style of romantic conceptualism. His experiences living in communist East Germany and the more liberal and open society of the United States have significantly influenced his works. Kunath’s distinctive art language is also featured in prominent public and private collections such as the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; Centre Pompidou, Paris; DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art, Athens; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Pinault Collection, Paris.
