Artist of Handmade Custom Instruments
Jens Ritter is a German artist. He grew up in a musical environment, which aroused his passion and love for the electric guitar. After his studies of mechanical arts, his focus was creating avant-garde guitars for Prince, George Benson, Nile Rodgers, Lady Gaga and other major music production artists. Ritter’s guitar sculptures left their traditional purpose and turned into abstract art pieces to express his interrogations about the contemporary and future purpose of music and its technical elements, as well as its interaction with human nature. Later on, Jens Ritter added music and recording equipment to his art pieces and installations.
