Michael Kutsche is an award-winning German artist based in Berlin, Germany. He is a self taught artist who works both in traditional and digital media. His work is best described as an astoundingly lifelike depiction of parallel realities, populated by odd characters reminiscent of movies, comics but also Flemish Renaissance Painting.
His unique approach of imaginative character creation has led him to become a character designer on Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”, “John Carter of Mars”, directed by Andrew Stanton, "Robopocalypse", directed by Steven Spielberg and"Thor", directed by Kenneth Branagh.
His work has been featured in books and magazines throughout the world, most notably in the 2011 edition of "Illustration Now!", published by Taschen.
