Michael Hutter (1963) is a visionary German artist who has spent most of his artistic career working in separation, isolated contemplation and manic work. He consciously chose to work away from the official art and gallery scene and is mostly autodidact, resulting in an exceptional, original and pure art form that reminds us of great classic masters like Hieronymus Bosch and fin-de-sciècle artists like Félicien Rops, James Ensor, etc. He uniquely combines his craft and references with a personal obsession for sci-fi imaginary, an ambivalent fascination for (Christian) religion, occult and tribal fantasies, and playful erotism. Michael Hutter is not only a passionate painter, he also writes short stories and novels about the eccentric characters and creatures that populate his imagination.
ART CAN DIE COIN collaborates with this extraordinary artist on two different projects.
There is the concept art book ‘ THE KRANZEDAN’, a collection of surrealistic short stories illustrated with his beautiful paintings. Release 2021.
Secondly, ART CAN DIE COIN is as we speak participating in the creation of his 6 by 2,2-meter altarpiece ‘THE ALTAR’ that will be the ultimate masterpiece he’s been preparing and wishing to make for a long time. He still expects to work for 18 months to complete it. To be expected end 2022.
