Micha Klein, Dutch (1964 - )

Klein has a BA in computer graphics from the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam where he lives and works today.

Micha Klein is represented in Groninger Museum, Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Amsterdam Historical Museum, Museum für Kunst & Gewerbe Hamburg, LACMA Los Angeles and Denver Art Museum.

Micha Klein combines the latest computer and photographic technology to explore the contemporary themes of club culture, fashion, music, and mass media. Klein's digital images combine reality and the virtual world to create fantastical images that are both fanciful and mesmerizing.

In the last years, Klein has based his work on several themes, which he has developed in a number of series, including Virtualistic Vibes, Double Date, Artificial Beauty, Among Elves and Icon, Idol and Fetishes.
