Kurt Zimmerman was born in 1925, in Plochingen, Germany. He moved with his family to the United States in 1929.
In 1963, Kurt Zimmerman who has a degree in electrical technology, was working on a project in Germany for NATO. He experienced an emotional breakdown which was the catalyst for his artistic career. Now living in Florida, he is working full time painting his fantasy animals and landscapes. He says of his art, “My work is a direct expression of information from other realms.”
Zimmerman’s work has been shown in many prestigious galleries in the United States and at the Henry Boxer Gallery in England. He is included in the permanent collection of the Mennello Museum in Orlando, Florida.
