A notable component in the sculptures of Andreas Futter is the struggle with the forces of gravity and the endeavour for equilibrium. The artist plays with instability and stability, that elemental demand on each corporeal-sculptural formation, which no sculptor can escape from.
German sculptor Andreas Futter was born in 1969 in Hechingen. Between 1990-6, Andreas studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart with Professors Peter Grau and Horst Bachmayer and took a specialized class in Painting and Graphic Art with Prof. Paul-Uwe Dreyer.
