German artist Michael Hutter - The Taming of the Leviathan painting

THE KRANZEDAN

Discover an abysmal and detailed world populated by surreal and magical beings.

Michael Hutter 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 original and pure art form that reminds us of great classic masters such as Hieronymus Bosch and fin-de-sciècle artists like Félicien Rops or James Ensor.

 

He uniquely combines his craft and references with a focus on cosmic horror, an ambivalent fascination for religion, occult and tribal fantasies, and playful erotism.

Michael Hutter is also a passionate writer, creating short stories and novels about the eccentric characters and creatures that populate his imagination.
