Walter Pfeiffer

by | 01 April 2018
Category: Artists
Synopsis
In the second book from EPF on Zu?rich-based photographer and graphic artist Walter Pfeiffer (b. 1946), the artists little-known drawings, long overshadowed by his commercial and homoerotic photographic works, have finally come to light. Pfeiffers large-scale hyperrealistic pencil drawings from the 1970s served as points of departure and working models for many of his photographs and eventually gave rise to his legendary posters for the Zu?rich Filmpodium, magazine illustrations and commissioned portraits. Originally trained as a draftsman, Pfeiffer used China ink, colored pencil and watercolor to draw beautiful boys, women friends, still lifes and flowers in the 1980s and 90s. Characterized by a cheerful, wakeful sensuality, the drawings alternate between graphic reduction and rich ornamentation. Drawings follows Pfeiffers encyclopedic publication, Welcome Aboard Photographs 19802000 (EPF, 2001). His work can be found in the collections of Kunsthaus Zu?rich, Fotomuseum Winterthur and Bundeskunstsammlung Bern, the Windsor Collection and Sir Elton John Photography Collection, among others.
