Fabian Warnsing was born 1991 in Unna, Germany, and studied fine arts at the Kunstakademie Münster.

In his paintings the predominant genre is classic figuration such as Stillife, interior and Landscape.The artist, however, drives it toward a kind of demonstrative contemporaneity that is effective in a double sense: one that deals with motif – in that he supplements painting’s traditional inventory with ordinary objects from consumer and pop culture – and another that works in a formal sense, through a striking visual vocabulary with enormous presence.

Behind their array of myriad mundane objects, his large compositions, most of them starkly colorful, allow for the perception of an idiosyncratic structural plan playfully tending toward the unstable.
