paul kolvenbach

concept artist, illustrator, degree designer, freelancer

welcome to my portfolio-page! my name is paul kolvenbach and I was born on 17.12.1990 in cologne, germany. In 2007 I lived in wanaka, new zealand, for half a year and attended the mount aspiring college.

back in germany I graduated from high school in 2010. since then I have been studying communication design at rhein-sieg-akademie, hennef, where I graduated in june 2015 as a graphic designer with diploma.

while studying, I wanted to dig deeper into the entertainment industry. so I did some internships at various game production studios in germany. after the internships in the studios, I continued working as freelancer from my home office.

I focus on concept art and illustration. I also work as designer and fine-artist.

interests and hobbies:

I am very interested in traditional and digital art. to fully understand human anatomy I have been visiting figure drawing classes since 2010. in addition I am very interested in 3d art, sculpting, games, films, media, music and traveling. I meet other artists to sketch together on a weekly basis, called sketch´n´slurp. We meet at drink and draws as well or we visit the zoo to study animal-anatomy.

travelling around the world:

to gather experience, to build a stronger visual library, to learn different cultures and to see new inspirational designs, I love to travel a lot. after living in new-zealand for 6 months in 2007 I wanted to see more of this pretty planet and my love for traveling awoke!

in 2015 my girlfriend and I traveled around the world. including that crazy and risky journey I had the fortune to experience the most beautiful and most epic places in the world! I met lots of people with interesting stories and unusual lifestyles.
I enjoy all trips and expand my knowledge every time I have the fortune to travel.
