About me

I'm Dr. Tobias Kruppa, a self-taught artist from Cologne, Germany, originally trained as a physicist. After a Ph.D. and nearly five years in the automotive industry, I found courage during a pilgrimage to pursue art full-time.

My artistic focus is on nude art, where I explore my erotic desires and visions of femininity. Through acrylic paintings, ink drawings, and fine art prints, I celebrate softness and share my love. My current series, "Age of Aquarius," revisits childhood dreams, while my „Coven of Corals" Tarot delves into inner femininity.

I've sold my handmade Tarot sets internationally and exhibited large-scale prints of my cards at two solo shows in Berlin. Another series, "Licking Lion," explores explicit sexual fantasies and has been showcased at the Seattle Erotic Art Festival and at a solo show in Cologne. I sell my work through my website and at various markets and fairs.

Collaborating with subcultours, I host creative workshops in my studio, featured recently in local TV. My artistic journey has been supported by a cultural grant from the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia in 2021 and 2022.

Keen observers may spot some of my work in the streets of Cologne-Ehrenfeld.
