Stefan Hoffmann is a German-born artist based in Rotterdam. Using water-based inks, Hoffmann screenprints directly onto various surfaces including windows, walls and billboards. Drawing upon imagery including pictograms and other sources, he also incorporates visual elements sourced from each working location. Every project involves a gradual evolution of imagery through the combining of new and existing screens, allowing the public to follow the creative process over time. Stefan Hoffmann created site-specific installations specifically for Printopolis at: The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art’s Media/Retail Space, the OCADU Graduate Student Gallery, the Drake Hotel and 401 Richmond.
