Thomas Schütte (born 1954 in Oldenburg) studied under Fritz Schwegler and Gerhard Richter at the Düsseldorf Academy of the Arts in the 1970s and has since become one of the most versatile and important contemporary artists. He not only works as a sculptor and painter, prints have also consistently played a central part in his oeuvre. He first gained publicity in the 1980s with his architectural models and since then has created numerous suites and portfolios covering a wide thematic and technical range.
Thomas Schütte has received many recognitions for his oeuvre, including the Arnold Bode Prize in 1990, the Kurt Schwitters Prize in 1998 and the Golden Lion as best artist at the Venice Biennale in 2005.
His works are held in important international collections including the Museum of Modern Art New York, Tate Modern London and the Nationalgalerie in Berlin. In recent years, leading museums such as the Museum Folkwang, the Fondation Beyeler and the Moderna Museet in Stockholm honored the artist with major exhibitions.
Thomas Schütte lives and works in Düsseldorf.
