Florian Roithmayr’s concern for everyday environments is supported by his research of empathy in history, design and archaeology and its dissemination and understanding in popular culture. His most recent bodies of work explored the complex biography of a rock engraving of Giraffes in a remote area of the Saharah dessert and Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion, designed by Ron Dirsmith at the height of Hefner’s fame in the 1970s.
Roithmayr initially trained in Germany as a set designer before studying Fine Art at Slade School of Fine Art, London, the School of the Art Institute, Chicago. In 2005 he graduated from the MA Fine Art program at Goldsmiths College.
He has recently had solo exhibitions at MOT International in London and Galerie Neue Alte Brücke in Frankfurt and his work has been included in group-exhibitions including Treignac Projet, France, Carl Freedman Gallery, London, Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridgeshire, S1 Artspace, Sheffield, Galleria D’Arte Moderna Turin, Grazer Kunstverein.
