Michael Kutsche is an award-winning German artist based in Berlin, Germany. He is a self taught artist who works both in traditional and digital media. His work is best described as an astoundingly lifelike depiction of parallel realities, populated by odd characters reminiscent of movies, comics but also Flemish Renaissance Painting.
His unique approach of imaginative character creation has led him to become a character designer on Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”, “John Carter of Mars”, directed by Andrew Stanton, “The Jungle Book”, directed by Jon Favreau, “Oz the Great and Powerful”, directed by Sam Raimi and “Thor”, directed by Kenneth Branagh, among others.
Since his character design work plays a crucial role in the success of these movies, he has become one of the most sought after character designers working in the film industry today.
