Tobias Putrih

Tobias Putrih was born in Slovenia in 1972, he resides and works in New York and  Ljubljana. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Ljubljana, Slovenia in 1997. He then studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in Germany winning the Vordemberge-Gildewart Foundation Award in 2002. Tobias Putrih is known for his work with everyday materials such as cardboard, styrofoam substances and plywood to produce a diverse range of fragile structures from small modular works to giant installations and cinema environments. He is also known in his work to push the limits and build structures that overhang and seem to be almost about to collapse. Below are the images of artworks and installations as my choices to represent Tobia Putrih's work.
