Paul Eddie Pfisterer is a German music and visual artist. He works with oil painting, mixed technique, watercolor, etching, wood carving, sculpture and mural painting.

Contents

He developed his own techniques for etching, such as dry point engraving, magnet etching and the punch and flex technique. He invented a formula in color mixing which enabled him to paint a wide range of colours, including old master techniques.

He is also a professional musician and is therefore included in the Lexicon of German Rockbands and Interpreten Rock in Deutschland.

Early life

Pfisterer was born in Waldenburg/Württemberg on 17 June 1951, the son of the painter Otto Pfisterer (Nördlingen/Nizza). In 1966, he trained in technical drawing. He studied in 1974 as a draftsman, painter and etcher under different artists.

Career

From 1974 to 1981 he worked as a professional musician. In 1980, he owned a gallery in Steinau. In 1981, Pfisterer emigrated to Australia and returned to Germany. He lived in Berlin in 1985, and from 1986 to 1990 owned a gallery in Grebenau. In 1991, he moved to Hamburg. Then he settled and established himself in 2006 at Laubach, Germany and entitled as "Hofmaler des Grafen zu Solms-Laubach".

As a graphic artist, Pfisterer made art calendars (Greifenstein calendar, Wetterau-calendar, Brühl-Edition). He worked for banks, Lufthansa, Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof, Hotel Jäger, and Karstadt. He was an art editor for Walter De Gruyter, Scientific Edition. He wrote the Dictionary of Monograms 2 (1995) and Dictionary of Signatures (1999).
