Born in Germany in 1941, he lives and works in Düsseldorf.

Hans-Peter Feldmann considers himself more a compulsive collector and appropriator of found images and ordinary objects than an artist. His interventions on pictures or objects are minimal, but yet enough to give them a new life thus challenging the viewers’ perception and drawing their attention to the details of modern life that would have gone unnoticed. Not attached to any specific subject matter, his art has an almost encyclopedic character. News, advertising, pornography, documentary, public relations, science, anthropology, tourism, film, fashion, or politics, nothing escapes his interest. Feldmann is also a prolific producer of artist books and his publications have been instrumental to establish the genre as a recognizable form of artistic practice.
