Life and work

Zelmer was born April 7, 1948, in Munich, Germany and studied in London at the Hampstead School of Art and Paris at the Académie Julian between 1968 and 1972. From 1975 he worked on colour etchings and lithographs in the studio of Josef Werner in Munich. Since 1980 he has maintained a second studio in Liguria, Italy.
