About Andy Hope 1930

Andy Hope 1930 (born Andreas Hofer) is a German artist who uses imagery from comic books, film noir, and forms of early Minimalism to make works that careen from the grotesque to the intimate and restrained. His flat works are often constructed on supports that he buys at various flea markets, while his sculptures often enlarge childish toys—rockets or action figures, for example—to fantastical sizes. He frequently references art history, as in his series of meticulous reproductions of works by Kasimir Malevich.

German, b. 1963, Munich, Germany, based in Berlin, Germany
