Rigo Schmidt

Rigo Schmidt, born at Altenburg in 1974, was a postgraduate student with Professor Arno Rink at the College for Graphics and Printing in Leipzig. He lives and works in Leipzig.

Schmidt’s paintings only appear to be anchored in reality, since he often finds his sources at points where Nature and reality have already been filtered: isolated, deceptively authentic looking objects are taken from photographs, paintings or museum cabinets and returned to an artificial format.
