grew up in Cologne, Germany, and now lives and works in Ancona, Italy.
Complete artist, Schmitz only recently decided to dedicate himself to digital art making in a professional way.
Thanks to his vivid imagination, he creates works in which he combines formal compositions and various chromatic tones with singular textures of often materic effects.
It's essential to the author creating his works with instantaneousness; all his works, unique and never reproduced more than once, are similar to 'snapshots': their birth, their elaboration and their realization is performed in a short time frame in order to take the best advantage from the immediacy, the instant, the magic intuitive and inventive moment.
Each phase of the creative process is personally followed with care and precision by the artist; like an 'artisan', he creates and produces his artwork up to the final part of the printing.
Schmitz, inventor artist, gets inspiration by the experiences coming from his job in management for an international company, maker of electronic musical instruments, but, above all, by his innate and inexhaustible nature of creative, of searcher; his works reveal and introduce us in a world made of colours, figures, compositions and architectures, all products of an imaginative and immediate path.
