Bastian Hoffmann (born 1983 in Frankfurt, Germany) is a German artist who creates sculptures, installations and videos. He is interested in conceptual analysis of common objects and everyday situations. He carries issues such as the cosmos, natural phenomena, the familiar, and the traditional object to the point of absurdity. At the very conception of each work, Bastian considers the seemingly impossible thought of its existence, with he goal being the physical realization of this fictional construct. Bastian Hoffmann studied at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne and Art Academy Düsseldorf and is the recipient of the North Rhine Westphalia State Award for Young Artists.
