Portrait Robert Nippoldt

Robert Nippoldt (born 1977 in Kranenburg, Germany) is a German illustrator, graphic designer and book artist. He studied graphic design and illustration at the University of Applied Sciences in Münster. The book “Gangster. Die Bosse von Chicago” was his thesis project. Two years later in 2007, his second book “Jazz. New York in the Roaring Twenties” was published. It was translated into several languages and won numerous awards. In 2010 “Hollywood in the 1930s”, his third book on 1920s and 30s America, came out. In 2017 his fourth book “Night falls on the Berlin of the Roaring Twenties” was published. His books are accompanied by games and limited edition silkscreen prints. In addition to his book projects, he illustrates for international magazines and clients including The New Yorker, Le Monde, Die ZEIT, Mercedes-Benz, Reader’s Digest, Taschen and TIME Magazine. For commissions of this nature he collaborates with his sister Astrid Nippoldt and his wife, Christine Nippoldt, as part of their own label, Studio Nippoldt.

"Ein Rätselhafter Schimmer“ is the accompanying show to the Berlin book. The stage programme with live drawings and live music was developed in 2015-2018 by Robert Nippoldt and the „Trio Größenwahn“. The show has been performed more than 50 times, among others in the Pantheon Theater in Bonn, at Berlin Heimathafen, at Schloss Elmau, at Kurhaus Göggingen and on the cruise ships of AIDA.

Robert Nippoldt’s works have been shown in exhibitions in Germany, Switzerland,Belgium and Spain. His studio is located at the old freight yard in Münster.
