Gregor Hildebrandt (b. 1974 in Bad Homburg) studied in Mainz and Berlin. Since 2015 he is Professor for Paintings and Print at Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich. In 2016 he was awarded the Falkenrot Preis des Künstlerhaus Bethanien.

Gregor Hildebrandt’s paintings, sculptures and installations draw on music, cinema and underground cultures, arranging and combining visual elements of sound recordings and various recording media such as magnetic tapes, vinyl records or compact disks. Throughout his poetic work, infused with both sound and silence, Hildebrandt creates a wide range of subtly reflective compositions that invite the viewer to evolve in space and grasp the beauty of things past.
