ABOUT

Gabriele Gutwirth is a German artist and designer. She studied Communication Design (Dipl.-Designer FH / BA) at the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg, Germany, and Visual Arts (MFA) at the Miami International University of Art & Design, USA.

Her body of work consists of photographs, digital compositions, collage techniques, and precise and experimental ink drawings. Predominantly executed in a linear and graphic style, both Gutwirth’s design and artistic pieces visually counter societal trends towards information overload and continuous sensory stimulation and strive for information bundling and simplification.

​In addition to Gutwirth’s focus on the exploration of simple shapes, contrast, and white space, some of her artistic interpretations deal with the identification of factors that influence or characterize human behavior. She mainly portrays insights she gains from everyday events in social life as well as from analogies in nature.

 

Gabriele Gutwirth currently lives and works in Bavaria, Germany.
