Biography

Philip Hindenach, a native of Southern California, has always followed his artistic cravings, taking his first art lessons from his mother, an amatuer artist, in the playroom of his childhood home in Van Nuys.Ca. He continued to focus on art as well as math throughout grade school working towards one day realizing his goal of becoming an architect.

Upon completion of high school Philip studied architecture and City and Regional Planning at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. After 3 years however, his goal shifted away from the hard drafted edges of engineering structures to the freer disciplines of Interior Design. Philip relocated to New York City where he completed his BFA in Interior Design (finishing ,first in his class) at the New York School of Interior Design.

The next 15 years were spent primarily in Connecticut where he established a successful design business, served on the Board of the American Society of Interior Designers, and won both State and National design competitions.However, in 1990,his love of California lured him back to L.A.where he involved himself in the furniture business. Philip established L.A. Loft where he designed and manufactured home offices (Computaries) as well as entertainment cabinets and other casegoods for numerous retailers in Southern California. Eventually he was hired by his largest account, Scandinavian Designs, to work out of their flagship PLUMMERS WEST L.A. store as Merchandise/Visual Display manager. Philip was awarded First Place for New Media at his first foray into the art show circuit at the Beverly Hills "Affaire in the Gardens Art Show" He was subsequently invited by the City of Beverly Hills to provide the artwork for the following show 's promotional materials including post card, program, and street banners which were successfully completed in May 2006,

Today, Philip's early interest in architecture is clearly evident in his work.. His use of this often iconic imagery as well as the natural beauty that is Southern California serves as a dramatic counterpoint and backdrop to his fascination with the fragilities and complexities of the human condition and contemporary pop culture.
