Wolfgang Grasse (1930 - 2008)

Wolfgang Grasse was born Dresden, Germany in 1930. He studied art under his grandfather, Friedrich Grasse, until the war broke out. In 1948 Grasse was arrested by Soviet authorities for anti-Soviet cartoons. He spent eight years in prison. Once released, he resumed his artistic career in Europe, prior to moving to Australia in 1966. Grasse's fantastic realist works are in the grand tradition.

"I paint objective, figurative art with high technical perfection to create beautiful, valuable and qualitative works with interesting visions. My art is called Fantastic Realism (Vienese School) influenced also by French surreal and Japanese art (Hokusai, Kunisada, Hiroshige)."
