Willi Kissmer's expressive and exaggerated interpretation of detail is a 
 trait that permeates the body of his art that can be described as 
 sensual, provocative, technical and mysterious. Born in Duisburg,
 Germany, Kissmer studied at the Folkwangscule, University of Essen 
and later taught printmaking at the University of Duisberg. A range

 can include combinations of the female figure, everyday objects and

of transforming a commonplace subject into something extraordinary.
 The result is not just a visual experience, but also a unique personal
