Günther Frühmesser was born 25th August 1958 in Dusseldorf, and now lives in the Bavarian foothills of the Alps.
His father was a well-known artist and taught his son how to prepare the colours on his palette when Günther was just 12 years old.
When he finished elementary school he immediately began to paint landscapes and floral work. While he went on to further his education at university, studying political economy, (he graduated in 1986) he still devoted all his leisure time to his art.
During the years 1980 – 84 Günther Frühmesser went on study trips to Southern France and Italy. And in 1987 he spent a year in England and Scotland studying the old masters in the major galleries. In 1988 he devoted himself to watercolour painting, but later switched back to pure oil painting, which has been his chosen medium ever since.
Günter Frühmesser is one of the best-known landscape artists in Germany and has had work exhibited in Germany, Austria, Great Britain and USA.
