Showcasing his artistic prowess through captivating paintings on canvas and intricately crafted figurative sculptures in resin and bronze. His journey as an artist is a fusion of prolific creativity and well-timed solo exhibitions that have propelled his distinctive series to the forefront of the art world.

The globe has witnessed the resounding success of thirteen major solo exhibitions by Fringe, all of which saw a complete sell-out of his captivating pieces. Born in the late 70s, Fringe made a transition from a background in banking to the illustrious realm of fine art. This shift allowed him to seamlessly blend branding symbols with thought-provoking imagery, resulting in multimedia creations and sculptures that deeply resonate with viewers.

What defines Fringe's trajectory is his unceasing evolution. Each of his exhibitions stands as a testament to his growth as an artist, with every showcase offering a unique and unprecedented experience. His artistic discipline spans a wide range, encompassing the application of oils on canvas, the harmonious fusion of mixed media, and the creation of striking sculptures using resin and bronze.

One of Fringe's notable sculptures, 'Gutinke Meine’ —which translates to 'my sweetheart'—exemplifies his masterful skill with both resin and bronze mediums. This artwork serves as a testament to Fringe's ability to transcend traditional boundaries and bridge the gap between materials. 'Gutinke Meine' whispers the soul in the quiet moments, a tender acknowledgment of a cherished connection that transcends the chaos. It becomes the anchor, a guiding light in the intricate journey of self and society. In the dance of personal discovery and the embrace of Stress Narcotika, 'Gutinke Meine' emerges as a steadfast companion navigating the cosmic chaos, weaving a tale of discovery on the outer edges of reality where the enigmatic and the familiar dance in harmony. It is not just a phrase but a whispered promise, a sweetheart in the uncharted territories of the unknown.


Fringe began his series titled FACSIMILES in June 2020. The artist’s process was to release a single print per month for a year. In content, the prints speak about the power and powerlessness of words and serve as personal, sometimes indefinite responses to real events in his life. FACSIMILES are, by definition, ‘exact copies of written or printed material,’ and this the artist presents as messages from a place of introspection.



About the meanings embedded in his imagery, Fringe has said: “My art is essentially my analysis of life with its supremely fast pace. If we blink, we miss.”
