Egon ZippelEGON ZIPPEL

is

an

ARTIST.

He was born in TIMISOARA, RUMANIA, 1960 to GERMAN parents. When NICOLAI CEAUSESCU rose to power in 1964, the ZIPPELS decided that an URGENT relocation was necessary and chose to settle in
HEIDELBERG, Germany to begin life anew.

EGON studied GRAPHIC DESIGN at the UNIVERSITY OF MANNHEIM; then received a Fulbright Scholarship to GEORGETOWN, Washington D.C. 1984-85 and the UNIVERSITY OF AUSTIN. In the years that followed, Egon studied computer graphics at the NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY and continued his postgraduate studies at the INSTITUTE OF NEW MEDIA at the STAEDEL ART ACADEMY in FRANKFURT 1993-94.

In the early 90s he moved to ITALY and returned to NYC in 1996. He also maintains a studio in BERLIN.

Egon believes in both PREDETERMINATION & FREE WILL. He wrestles with this CONTRADICTION daily and keeps his life COMPLEX.
