Julian Voss-Andreae

His public sculptures have become landmarks in eleven states in the US as well as internationally. Videos of is "Disappearing Sculptures" have gone viral. On March 29th, the renown Quantum Physicist turned sculptor, Julian Voss-Andreae personally unveiled his latest monument "Isabelle", right here in Palm Springs.  "Isabelle" earned Voss-Andreae the amazement of the city and awarded him the 2018 Buzz Award. If you were unable to attend the event make sure to visit our website:  Isabelle of Palm Springs

Julian Voss-Andreae is a German sculptor based in Portland, Oregon. Starting out as a painter he later changed course and studied physics, mathematics, and philosophy at the Universities of Berlin, Edinburgh and Vienna. Voss-Andreae pursued his graduate research in quantum physics, participating in an experiment considered one of the modern milestones of unifying our everyday intuition with the famously bizarre world of quantum physics. He moved to the United States to study Sculpture at the Pacific Northwest College of Art from where he graduated in 2004. Voss-Andreae’s work has quickly gained critical attention. His sculpture, often inspired by his background in science, has captured the attention of multiple institutions and collectors in the United States and abroad. Recent institutional commissions include large-scale outdoor monuments for the University of Minnesota and Rutgers University (New Jersey). Voss-Andreae’s work has been featured in print and broadcast media worldwide.

Recently, Voss-Andreae also won the prestigious CodaWorx award for public sculpture – a great achievement and well deserved.

Lead time for most of Voss-Andreae's sculptures is now three months and more, so if you are considering one, please talk to us soon.
