Jens Rotzsche, born 1965 in Hannoversch Münden, (lower Saxony, western Germany) skipped art studies for an apprenticeship as theatre Painter in the Staatstheater of Kassel, Germany in 1983. After several years of practise, he mastered almost all painting and sculpting techniques, but had grown out of this job, that had provided him with a safe artistic and technical foundation and various skills. By 1992, his ambitions drove him to more independent work. In the following years, he explored graphic design, Computer animation, and comercial illustration. Ever since, he makes his living out of these disciplines. Also gifted with languages, and a great, almost universal curiosity, he did intense and extended travels through western Europe, the USA and the USSR (when it still existed).
