Gregor Schöpf (*1989) is a 32 year old German male based in Brussels, Belgium. He will relocate permanently to Stockholm, Sweden in the second half of 2022.
Born in Frankfurt, Germany he was brought into close contact with nature while spending a part of his childhood living in Lake Echo and Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
He has since lived in Munich, The Hague, Berlin and Brussels.
He graduated 2013 in The Hague with an LLB degree, specializing in International Humanitarian Law.
Gregor is instinctively drawn to Japanese aesthetics, as classical and medieval Japanese culture defined beauty through nature-based aesthetic paradigms.
"At the instant when our mental activity almost merges into an unconscious state - that is, the relationship between the subject and object is forgotten - we can experience the most aesthetic moment. That is what is implied when it is said that one goes ... and becomes one with nature."
Otsuji Osuga, Japanese poet
