Christof Kohlhöfer, the important German representative of Pop-Art, was born at Frankfurt am Main in 1942. He studied at the acclaimed Düsseldorf Art Academy between 1965 and 1971 - K.O. Goetz and Joseph Beuys were among his teachers. Kohlhöfer completed his studies as a master student. In the early 1970s he was at the heart of the vibrant Düsseldorf art scene and was a regular at the legendary bar "Ratinger Hof". His art soon became talk of the scene. In the early days he made film projects with a certain proximity to the "Fluxus" movement, among them a joint project with Sigmar Polke from 1969 ("Der ganze Körper fühlt sich leicht und möchte fliegen"). In 1968 Kohlhöfer and his artist friend Polke worked on the famous series of lithographs ". Höhere Wesen befehlen". The artist showed his works at the epochal documenta 5 in 1972 as a representative of the "Individuellen Mythologien" (Individual Mythologies) and also at documenta 6 in 1977. Solo shows in Offenbach, Baden-Baden, Düsseldorf, Munich or Karlsruhe earned him popularity in the early 1970s. Kohlhöfer received the Düsseldorf Heinrich-Heine-Prize in 1974, in 1999 he was visiting professor at the University of California in Los Angeles. Christof Kohlhöfer's works reveal a certain closeness to Pop-Art and show him as a subversive and creative head. With his stencils and spray paints he takes street aesthetics to galleries and museums. His creations are complex image worlds between banality and opulence, between subculture and fine art.
Christof Kohlhöfer lives and works in Los Angeles.
Christof Kohlhöfer is represented in, among others:
