Raphael Grotthuss was born in 1983 in Starnberg, Germany. He lives and works in Munich, Germany.

Spraying, pouring, scooping – these three basic techniques of working with fiber are used by Raphael Grotthuss to subdue the strength and resistance of the material and to create free pictorial surfaces that are no longer confined by frames. Flax fiber, which is tear-resistant and non-elastic, is his material of choice. But chance also plays a role: when, for example, the artist gives up control of the fiber mass by using a spraying pistol to apply the fiber and pigment to a glass plate. Or during the drying process in the screen, when the artist distributes and arranges the materials in a more or less unrestrained manner.
