Philipp looks for inner truth in those he paints, which is why he paints beautiful women in traditional magazine poses, empty fodder for men’s dreams. Philipp then attempts to bring not that empty perfection to life, but the minor imperfections and the human stories that matter, stories about their lives, revealing aspirations and dreams that go beyond flawless skin.

An incredibly skilled artist, a clear artistic progression can be seen throughout his career. Interestingly Philipp is equally skilled as a drawer or painter.

Despite his stern outer exterior Philipp is one of the most fun artists, his preferred reading genres being science fiction and traditional fiction, and his studio is littered with audio books reflecting that.
