Christian Tobin is an outstanding contemporary sculptor and known as the founder of kinetic stone sculptures.
Born 1956 in Munich, high school graduate, sculptor apprenticeship.
In the 1980`s art studies at the Munich Academy in the subject of large scale sculpturing in combination with architecture. Graduation with a masters degree under Prof. Leo Kornbrust.
While studying, he develops his interest in kinetic sculpture, which has a major influence on his further works. Already the first generation of these sculptures, the floating sheres carries him across the globe. Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands,
Finland, Japan and the USA are fascinated by this new dynamic.
His style evolves to figurative, dancing stone-columns and later to the amorphic shapes of ice age boulders (erratic blocks).
Lastely Christian Tobin discovers water as a new sculptural component. This opens a
wide spectrum of possibilities to react on spatial situations.
