BIOGRAPHY

Born in 1975 in Büdingen (DE), Alexander Blank does not owe his current career as an art jeweller to an early vocation but to a happy combination of circumstances. After discovering that the photographer he wanted to study with had already an apprentice, he introduced himself to his neighbor who turned out to be a goldsmith. After two years of apprenticeship, he continued his professional technical training in Hanau and Hanover before joining the Design Academy of Hanau, where he really discovered the discipline of contemporary jewellery and its horizon of possibilities. Graduated in 2004, he then joined the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich under  direction of Otto Künzli, where he studied until 2010.
He received the Herbert Hoffmann Preis in 2012 and his works are featured in many prestigious public and private collections, including the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, the CODA Museum, Apeldoorn (NL), the Kestner Museum, Hanover (DE) and the Hiko Mizuno Collection (JP).
He lives and works in Munich since 2010.
