Mischa Fritsch was born 1970, in Johannesburg, South Africa, to Austrian parents, pioneering expats from Vienna.
At the age of seven his family relocated to Munich, Germany where he attended Waldorf School. Amongst other things,
this environment exposed him to the various arts and crafts and encouraged his growing interest and emerging talent.
The art of jewellery-making most inspired the young mind and he attempted his first pieces in his father’s dental laboratory with tools and machines quite similar to the ones he would much later be introduced to in the course of his formal studies. The art of jewellery-making later developed into a talent for projects on a larger scale, and Fritsch began experimenting
with found materials and metals in the medium of sculpture.
Fritsch has, to date, had two solo exhibition with David Krut Projects, the first being held in Spring of 2010 as the first exhibition in the expanded gallery space. The second solo, Remote Projections, included sculptural, two-dimensional
and video installation, and was showed at the gallery in January 2013 before moving to Franschoek
as part of the annual literary festival.
