Brigitte Yoshiko Pruchnow

Figurative Painter, Munich, Germany

Brigitte Yoshiko Pruchnow is a German-Japanese painter who is primarily known for her filmesque works that capture figures in suspended animation. Many of these involve water - with the subjects caught mid-plunge, surrounded by bubbles and permanently submerged.

Brigitte’s background as a filmmaker is evident throughout her work, particularly in the way she uses unusual angles in her compositions. And this is underpinned by a zen-like quality that arises from her interest in Japanese philosophy.

Brigitte has exhibited in various solo/group shows across Europe, in the US, and Japan.
