Chris Bleicher

Cultural Ambassador for Germany
Neon Artist

Hi and hello,

Welcome to my art pages. Please view as well my virtual art gallery under www.peepart.com My websites www.bleicherart.com www.bleicher.com www.bavaria-art-souvenirs.com are multifaceted like my own life.




About me in brief:

Born and raised in Munich, Germany. My father painted and had a technical profession. My mother wrote poems. I was encouraged and supported in art efforts by both my mother and father. After attending a convent school I successfully completed a bank training. Than I spent some years as a free lance worker while being active at the same time as an artist to the arts in order to dedicate myself completely to art afterwards.

My art is my passion and is inspired by my many exotic travels: Africa, Asia, Canada, Caribbean, China, India, Middle- and South America, South Seas, South Korea and the USA.

Through my artwork I want to express "joy of living", stimulate the fantasy and promote a positive attitude with colors and shapes. I believe in experiamentalism, exposing in my art the exotic, erotic, ecological and humorous. I am generally the zeitgeist 8-15 years ahead, for example I am the first (neon) artist in Germany who started to paint (animal) urns & (animal) coffins: Urn Art. I was also with my LiveCam project "peepart" 17 years ahead of today's current trend "World Live on the Net"!

I don't have a leisure time in the conventional sense, as my profession is my free time. I find time to keep my body fit, because an esthetic body has a special fascination for me as an artist. I like to visit ballet performances to study the beautifully shaped and defined bodies in motion. Female and male eroticism, too, plays a role in my art. The stimulant for the erotic comes of life. Of particular interest are fringe groups. Any incident inspires my art. Since more than 20 years with numerous actions and happenings in the media I have shown commitment for preserving nature in combination with technology. I love people and animals. Today an intact nature is more important than ever before for the next generations.

In addition, volunteer work with 6-10-year-old children at a municipal daycare center and support of Brillen Weltweit (Eyewear Worldwide) with my glasses collection here

Yours,
Chris Bleicher
