German, b. 1980 Leipzig, lives and works in Karlsruhe.


Enrico Bach uses line, form and colour to create troupe l'oeil effects of depth.  He then subverts his rigorous geometric abstract form of painting with spontaneous gestures or random actions. The works seduce and undermine the viewers’ perception of perspective and three-dimensionality thus forcing them to consider the works once again as two-dimensional paintings.


Bach graduated from the State Academy of Fine Arts, Karlsruhe in 2010 and completed his Masters studies under Prof. Gustav Kluge from 2010 to 2011. He has held 24 solo exhibitions and participated in over fifty group exhibitions since 2010. His works are represented in numerous private and public collections. 2013, Debutant award of the State Academy of Fine Arts; 2012, Scholarship of the Art Funds, Bonn; 2011 and 2007, Winner of the State Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe; 2010, Residence Scholarship Stephan Balkenhol.
