Reinhard Kleist

I was born in 1970 near Cologne.

I studied at the school for Graphic and Design in Münster, where I graduated with the silk screen album “Abenteuer eines Weichenstellers” by the author H.C.Artmann. While I was studying, I worked on the two books “Lovecraft” and “Dorian”.

Now I live in Prenzlauer Berg/Berlin and work in the same studio as the comic artists Fil, Naomi Fearn and Mawil on Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg.

I work as an illustrator for books, Cds, advertisement, magazines and animation.

In 2006 the book “Cash – I see a darkness” came out and has since then been translated into fourteen languages.

I spend one month in Cuba in 2008 and worked on sketches for a travel book, which was published in the same year and has yet been translated into greek, chinese and korean. I also used this trip to do some research for a book about Fidel Castro, which appeared in Germany in 2010 and has also been translated into many languages.

In 2012 my book “The Boxer” about a jewish boxer appeared in Germany.

“Berlinoir”, a series about vampyres in Berlin, was republished in 2014 in a all-in-one edition by my publishing house Carlsen.

I am doing a lot of workshops in countries like Mexico, Brasil, Jordan, Indonesia, China, Thailand, Canada with the Goethe Institute. In 2013 I had the chance to work with ARTE in a refugee camp in Northern Iraq. The results can be seen here: ARTE Refugees

My new book about the somali runner Samia Yusuf Omar was published by Carlsen under the title “Der Traum von Olympia” this year.

At the moment I work on a book about the life and work of Nick Cave. You can follow the progress of the comic book here:
