Thomas Helbig (b. 1967) is an artist based in Berlin.
Helbig attended the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Munich and Goldsmiths,
University of London, from 1989-1996. Thomas Helbig’s precisely composed,
semi-abstract paintings provoke a feeling of confusion and fascination in the
viewer. The German painter preserves the idea of the sublime fascination
of nature, as a menacing power. Helbig, as a true Avant-garde painter, feels
the responsibility of sign and color, not practicing disenchantment and
ornament, but the enchantment of a space in which the materials of art realize.
Helbig has shown his work in many exhibitions including at Oldenburger
Kunstverein, at the ICA in London and at Maschenmode in Berlin. He has
also shown at galleries and museums such as Museum Abteiberg in
Mönchengladbach, Danel Hug Gallery in Los Angeles and The Approach in
