Norbert Bisky was born in 1970 in Leipzig, Germany. His treatment of landscapes and exploration of the portrait and narrative structure place him firmly in the tradition of great European painting. Norbert Bisky's experiments with breaking down forms and with blocks of colour also place him on the borderline of abstract art.
His art has been widely shown internationally, including at the Rostock Art Gallery which held a retrospective of his work in 2014. His pieces feature in numerous collections, including at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York, Museum Ludwig in Cologne and Deutsche Bank in Frankfurt.
