During the course of his anything but linear career, characterized by recurring excursions into other cultural areas including music, film and theater, painting has remained the most constant element in Andreas Dobler's activities. In his youth, he was strongly influenced by pop music, psychedelic culture and its ties to the neo-surrealism of the 60s and 70s, as well as science fiction and comic aesthetics. He continues today to mine both media-oriented and popular culture, his taste for fantasy art and culture, ordinary subjects, the phenomena of pop culture and the aesthetic fringes of art having proven an abundant source for his figurative painting. In the 80s Dobler's pictures often depicted objects taken from daily life (chest expanders, ski poles, cotton swabs, chocolate, etc.) combined in strange ways and lent a monumental aspect. Later, in the 90s, he used travel brochures to produce paintings and drawings of exotic hotel complexes with their palm trees, swimming pools and fantastically designed apartment buildings--spaces in which various desires are projected, allowing one to escape the day-to-day world. More than sarcastic commentary or simple pop icons, Dobler's works translate his penchant for narrative and his interest in music and mise en scène, which he uses moreover as tools in his pictorial work.
