Klaus Fruchtnis

Born in 1978 in Colombia
Lives and works in Paris, France

Klaus Fruchtnis is a photographer, digital artist and lecturer. His research is based on the areas of photography, multimedia, digital drawing and media experimentation.

Klaus was born in Colombia in 1978. He has studied Fine Arts at Los Andes University in Bogotá and continued his education at the École des Beaux Arts of Paris and Rennes, France, where he obtained a B.A. in Fine & Digital Arts (Photography, Video and Multimedia), and a Masters in Art & New Media Technology from La Sorbonne University Paris 1. He also participated as a researcher on the EnsadLad Program at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs of Paris. His work has been exhibited, performed and published internationally.

His research is related to the word “space”, and it has been characterized by its itinerary and its way of evolution over the last years. He questions the image, its origin and its incidence in the current art world, through new technologies and different ways of perceiving art, as well as how they influence our daily life.
