Clemens Büntig was born 1968 in San Francisco and grew up in Zist near Penzberg, Germany. He studied at the Escuela Para Artes Aplicadas in Cadiz, Spain. From 1991 to 1995 he continued his studies at the School of Design in Basel, Switzerland, and graduated with a diploma in original printmaking.
His work the Kaldewey Press, a renowned artist book publishing house, brought him to New York in 1995. There he worked as a freelance artist and painter, realised print and art projects with Not Vital and others. He transformed a factory floor into a living and working space and used the loft for exhibition projects.
At the renowned New York-based Pace Gallery and its graphic studio Pace Editions, he printed for artist Aldo Crommelynck editions of artists such as Ed Ruscha, Jennifer Bartlett and Jim Dine.
Clemens returned to Bavaria in 1999 and founded his own printing workshop. The return to nature after the urban years in New York brought a deepening of his artistic work and lead to an authentic self-expression.
His interest in natural cycles and regularities, the microcosm and macrocosmic transformations through the medium of the digital pigment print have grown even further in the thematic frame "Plants and Puddles" in the exhibition 2012 at Hogan Lovells and in combination with painting, drawing and printmaking.
