German artist, Michael Moebius, fell in love with art at an early age, when he first started cartooning. After later coming across a book of pin-ups by Alberto Vargas, Moebius decided that figurative art would be his line of work. Moebius got his first big break in 1998 when he was able to come to the United States after the fall of the Berlin Wall. His talent as a painter and photographer was readily apparent. He quickly became a sought-after favorite of collectors, including Playboy, Procter & Gamble, Glamour, Laura Biagiotti, Vogue, Vanity Fair and other well-known companies.
