Born 1968 in Würzburg, lives and works in Berlin

Philipp Hennevogl, a German artist, has lived and worked in Berlin for 8 years. An established print-maker, he creates highly detailed and often large-scale linocuts. Subject matter for his work ranges from cityscapes to landscapes, and includes both still lifes and portraits.

As a student of painting at the University Gesamthochschule Kassel, Hennevogl briefly studied under Martin Kippenberger in the 1990s. The most impactful message he recalled from the late great German painter was to “Find what you love, and do it all the time. Focus on nothing else.” Taking this message to heart, Hennevogl has since devoted his artistic practice to to making prints, and currently concentrates on linocuts.

Hennevogl's works are in several private and public collections, including Museum für Moderne Kunst (Frankfurt), Städelsches Kunstinstitut (Frankfurt), Sammlung Deutsche Bank (Frankfurt), ING Belgien, Investitions Bank Berlin, Städtische Galerie (Bietigheim Bissingen), Neue Galerie (Staatliche Museen Kassel), Kulturspeicher (Würzburg)...
