About the Artist

Caspar Baum’s work is influenced by light, structural elements, and the principles of harmony as recognized in traditional Asian art; playing with shadows, illumination, and spatial depth, Baum separates his compositions into layers and recomposes each segment creating an imaginative, subdued environment.

Carefully dividing his canvas into portions that correspond in both size and density, Baum avoids creating aggressive and unbalanced compositions, instead creating work that is calming for the viewer; depicting the atmosphere, stillness, and tranquility he experienced while traveling through Eastern Asia. Baum’s paintings share his artistic journey, path of discovery, and his fascination with cultural exchange.
