Ulrich Panzer is a German citizen, who currently resides in Canada. When not travelling, he works full-time in his studio near Kingston, Ontario. Panzer was born in Bonn/Beuel, Germany, in 1965. His wide-ranging artistic practice spans over 20 years. Between 1987 and1991, he studied at the Kunstakademie Münster, Germany. His subsequent research project, Colour, Sound, and Architecture in Asian Cultures, was supported by the German Ministry of Education, and the Sangeet Natakh Academy in New Delhi. This research took place in various locations in India, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia, between 1991 and 1994. During this period, he also lived for a year in Tibet, immersing himself in Tibetan culture in his studio in the Himalayas, 11,000 feet above sea level. Further investigations into the physiological and physical effects of colour, sound, and architectural proportions lead Ulrich to Austria and Italy; between 1994 and 1997, he lectured and gave workshops in Europe, the United States and Canada on the healing aspects of colour, sound, and architectural space. He has exhibited numerous light and sound installations, including: Resonances, Badgastein, Austria (1994), 3000 Lights, Chittorgarh, India (1992), Der Blaue Raum, Bochum, Germany (1991), and Restraum, Münster, Germany, (1991). He has shown his paintings and works on glass internationally in Transparent, at Galerie Kunsstelle, Berlin, Germany (1998-1999), and in Paintings, at Museum Gelsenkirchen, Gelsenkirchen, Germany (1990).
