About Matthias Fischer
Born and raised in a small village in the Wittgenstein area of Germany, Matthias Fischer began sketching and drawing at an early age. Throughout his childhood he was immersed in a family environment inspired by poetry and classical music. In 1978, at the age of 12, his formal art training began when Fischer enrolled in a three-year fine art correspondence course at the “Ecole ABC de Paris”. In 1987 he moved to southern California and graduated in 1991 from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, embarking on a successful career in commercial art.
Today Matthias Fischer lives with his wife Brooke in the foothills above Pasadena where he works out of his studio.
My work is rooted in classical impressionism, yet it is contemporary in the use of color and style. My paintings are gestural in form, never dwelling on too many details; I try to capture a moment in time. “To tell a story is the most important aspect of a successful painting”, and then to imprint your own sensibilities and your own view on that story, that ultimately gives the painting its life.
