Jårg Geismar looks for themes for his work within the countries where he lives or spends any significant amount of time (Tokyo, New York, Dusseldorf). By doing so, he consistently accentuates the playfulness and imagination, which makes the viewer's fantasy flow. He is trying to offer people something they have yet not had and brings them a brand new view of the world. In Geismar's eyes, the fundamental role of art in today's world is to open new vistas to the world and to encourage emotions and feelings in people. He was born 1958 in Burgsvik/Gotland (Sweden) as son of German parents. Geismar graduated from Staatliche Kunstakademie Dusseldorf, Germany, in 1986, and in 1988 finished his post-graduate studies at the Parson School of Design, New York, MFA (Master of Fine Arts). He lived and worked in Dusseldorf where he passed away in 2019.
