The work of Nil Orange is focused on the reality behind the reality. His artistic vocabulary is fed by the knowledge of ancient, western, mystical traditions. Thus, with this magical view of reality, he succeeds in creating images, maps and books that lead the viewer into a timeless, archetypal world.  The artist sees himself in the tradition of de Chirico and Xul Solar and incorporates influences from artists as diverse as Frans Masereel, Tullio Pericoli, Glen Baxter and Robert Place.

Intensive involvement with Tarot, Kabbalah and Astrology since 1997. Member of the Tarot e.V., the German Astrologers Association (dav) and the Federal Association of Visual Artists (BBK).
