About the Author:

Berlin Artist Winston Torr creates figurative art on the hard copy imprints of our time and culture, aka: Newspaper Art! Grew up in Los Angeles. Born in Toronto. Is of Chinese descent. His one of a kind charcoal nude figure drawings and portraits hint at the assumption of decay, yet they continue to carry the daily imprints of history and culture around the world. The charcoal figures start a subconscious dialogue with the serialized, impersonal graphic elements they are drawn on. Physically fastened to last to the age of any canvas, the content of the works as well as the content of their materials invite the shift of perspective that comes with time, allowing viewers and collectors to live through personal change alongside. Born in Toronto, Canada, Winston Torr grew up in an Asian-American household in Los Angeles, California, which will always remain his home. After receiving a BFA from California Polytechnic State University in Pomona in 2000, he decided to take that same amount of years it took to achieve the diploma towards his practice, and thus began to educate himself outside the school system. After a near-death experience in 2003, Torr craved a different cultural experience in search of identity. The path led him to Berlin, Germany – a place where all kinds of biographies mix and mingle, and where art is at its most diverse. The creative capital of Europe did not fail in its effect on Torr: His artistic repertoire soon began to broaden and flourish. More info: winstontorr.com
