Born in Germany in 1963, Caspar Baum was influenced early on by the gothic cathedrals in France, and several visits to Venice and Asia. His oil and acrylic on canvas works reflect his affinity for light, structure, shadow-play, and illumination while invoking the natural layering and separation of an environment. Carefully dividing his canvas into portions, Baum ruminates on the earth’s wonder, re-composing man- made treasures, and piecing each segment of canvas together to create an imaginative, subdued locale.
Educated as a professional architect as well as a fine artist Caspar Baum has been working on his art for more than 30 years. He has had studios in Germany and works now in his studios in Singapore and Athens.
He has had a large number of single and group shows in Europe and overseas, between others at the Deutsche Bank Foundation, the Ulmer Museum, the Hans Werner Henze Collection, Shibuya Tokyo and Agora Art Gallery in New York.
He has received awards for his works, which is now part of several collections in the United States, Australia and Europe.
