The work of Albert Lorenz is recognized for its unique style and extraordinary detail. Born in 1941 and raised in New York City, Lorenz received his Bachelor of Architecture from Pratt Institute in 1965. He continued his architectural studies at Columbia University and received a Master of Science in Architecture in 1969. He worked in the architectural field for several years but did not stay there long. He began his illustration career in 1971, working as a freelance artist when he formed his studio.
Since then, the Albert Lorenz Studio has produced a wide spectrum of art, including illustrations for advertising, newspapers, magazines, editorials, children's books and book covers, as well as illustrations for many architectural firms. Lorenz gradually evolved his singular style by combining his knowledge of architecture with his imagination as an artist.
“I want the viewer to be drawn into my art the same way I am to Breughel and Bosch and to discover new things each time he or she looks at one of my works.”
