Felix Eckardt was born in Hamburg in 1975. He studied Painting and Illustration at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HaW) and at Universidad Complutense in Madrid.
Today he works as a freelance artist and illustrator for children’s and adolescents’ books, for film, television and music productions in Hamburg. Diverse children’s books and specialist art books by him have been published in the German and Spanish languages.
What interests him is life, people and their diversity in urban spaces. As a painter, he captures especially beautiful, quiet moments: small moments in the large city that give pause to the viewer, which one might easily overlook when passing by. In the process of the artist’s search for motifs, those places emerge as a contrast to the hustle and bustle of the cities.
